Keeping Your House Clean With A Busy Schedule
Messy House? Busy Schedule? Do you feel like no matter how many times you’ve cleaned in a week, your house still looks like a mess? Trust me, I’ve been there! It’s a pain to continuously clean on a busy schedule.
Let me tell you, I hate clean. With a passion. I do not appreciate coming home to a dirty house. So what to do I do? I clean. The next day, it’s still a mess. So I clean again. It’s a continuous cycle. No matter how many times I clean, the house is still a mess! My days are very long and I usually come home pretty late after being stuck in traffic for quite some time. The last thing I want to do is to come home to a messy house and clean. Here are some of my secrets to keeping my house keep with a crazy schedule.
Schedule a day to clean – I usually clean and finish what I need to finish on Sundays. This includes, laundry, sweeping, mopping, dusting, etc. Once my cleaning is complete, I make sure that any mess I make, I clean immediately. This way, my mess will not build up throughout the week. This also reduces cleaning time throughout your week!
Chore list – Distribute a chore list to those in your household. Hold them accountable for their section of the house. It’s much easier to divide and conquer than to do things yourself.
Take shortcuts – I guess they say, there are no shortcuts in life.. But if you’re on a busy tight schedule why not!
1. Don’t fold your clothes – hang them instead! This saves time folding and putting away clothes.
2. Use a robot vacuum to vacuum your house and let it run as you home. Why vacuum when someone can do it for you!
3. Clean as you go – wipe down the sink after your brush your teeth in the morning or sink right after you finish with dishes.
4. Do a little cleaning throughout the week. If see something on the floor, pick it up. Or if you’re about to walk out the door and see a pile of shoes, organize them. Doing a little bit each day goes a long ways throughout the week.
