Have you ever walked into your friend’s home and were jealous at how tidy and clean it is? There are a lot of people in our shoes. When you work hard with a lot of responsibilities, sometimes it’s hard to maintain an orderly space.
The most effective way to keep your home spotless is developing habits in your daily routine that complete the necessary maintenance.
As you move through your day-to-day in your house, make sure you think flat and empty. Keeping drawers shut and surfaces clear makes your space read as clean and tidy with a first impression. Once you’re in the habit of these two simple actions, you will be surprised at the difference.
If you have been on the hunt for tips on good housekeeping, it would be no surprise that you have heard of Marie Kondo. Follow the KonMari method and set aside a time to really sort through all the objects and furniture in your house that don’t quite have a place in your space to determine what sparks you joy.
With your home sorted and decluttered, giving everything its own distinct place to go back to after use will make cleaning easier. Having a place for everything takes away the added stress of figuring out where things go when you start cleaning.
