If I am being honest, I’m a bit uptight about my home. I force people to take their shoes off when they come into my house and always use coasters 🤷🏻♀️. I even go too far and have “inside” and “outside” clothes. (Does anyone else do this???)
I’ve probably said this before, but I’m BUSY. Like BUSY BUSY. Family, two jobs and still trying to find time for myself? But there’s one thing that I always make sure to do: keeping our home neat and tidy. For some reason, even when I’m having an incredibly busy week, it’s calming to know my home is well kept.
Here’s my three secrets that you can implement in your own homes! I hope these work well for you too!
- Save money and invest in technology that can help you clean. You can invest in a rumba to vacuum your home while you are at work or take it a step further and ask for help! FROM AMAZON! They have a brand new program that you actually hire a person to help you out with tasks at home! Have that piece of IKEA furniture that’s been “on your list” for the past month, hire someone for $20 to come out and lend you a hand.
- 15 minutes is all it takes. Take 15 minutes before you go to bed at night and pick everything up. Start the dishwasher, start a load of wash and rearrange the living room throw pillows. Spend the time each day and you won’t have to worry about it over the weekend. Here is the link to both my morning and night time routines. My husband and I love to make a game of our nightly “pick up” time, set a timer and see how quickly we can get everything done.
- Divide and conquer. My husband and I divide our chores up, he loves to the laundry (he’s weird) and I’ll pick up Tinsel’s toys; splitting up chores always makes the job easier. If you have roommates, make a chore chart and ask everyone to pitch in! Check out this great, cheap chore chart on Amazon! This chore chart is absolutly adorable and affordable! I mean, who doesn’t love chalkboard everything? 🙋🏻♀️
