Start the new year off right! Make a happier, healthier home for your new year’s resolution. By taking a few simple steps you can commit to a cleaner house and a more welcoming environment.
Have a place for everything:
We all have that spot in our home where everything tends to pile up. Whether it is keys, mail, receipts or random bits and bobs we’ve seen it. Start dedicating a spot for everything. Create an inbox for your mail or install a key holder by the door. Not only will it be easier to keep things clean but you stop losing those important items in the clutter.
Know when to get rid of something:
One of the other major contributors to the clutter in our homes is not knowing when to let go. All that stuff builds up. It’s okay to be sentimental and hold on to the things we hold dear, but that old tee-shirt in the back of your closet is probably not one of them.
Create a routine:
Create healthy habits by sticking to a schedule. Make a schedule form routine tasks. Create a routine that works for you, whether that’s small daily tasks or bigger weekly chores. Change your bedding and towels at least once a week. Vacuum your floors every week. Get the family involved, assign tasks to each member. You can even make a game out of it and see who can get their tasks done the fastest.
Pick up as you go:
Daily tasks can keep you ahead of the game. Try washing dishes as you make dinner, wiping out the sink after you brush your teeth or putting away items right away after using them. You’ll be amazed at how much more organized your home will feel by cleaning up as you go. You’ll also be surprised by how much less time you spend cleaning your whole house.
Clean a room at a time:
We all know that tackling the whole house can be daunting. Instead, focus on a single room at a time. Chose a day of the week or month and dedicate it to cleaning a specific room. You can prioritize your high traffic areas for a bigger impact. Bathrooms and kitchens tend to get the most attention, but it often means leaving other areas neglected. Switch it up when possible and don’t forget those neglected rooms. Don’t forget those sneaky areas many others forget.
