It’s all about committing to staying on top of these tasks and not letting days and weeks go by without doing any cleaning and tidying up.
Follow A Schedule
A great tip for keeping a well-organised and clean home is to follow a schedule. Create a schedule of tasks and a to-do list of what you want to make sure you get done daily, weekly, and monthly. It may help to tackle one room at a time each day instead of trying to clean the whole house on one day or weekend. Figure out what will work best for you and then get into a routine so cleaning becomes automatic for you and you know what you want to achieve throughout the week.
Create More Space
Another tip for keeping your home organised and clean is to create more space. It may be that you simply have too much stuff for the size of your home. You have a couple of options in this case. You can start by decluttering and getting rid of what you no longer need or want or you can move into a larger home that will be more suitable for all your belongings and family members. It may be your opportunity to work with builders to create your dream home where you can live comfortably and not feel like the walls are caving in on you because you have so much stuff.
