Want to feel like your home is clean and organized and like you’ve got ‘it’ together? First of all, it’s important to keep these things in mind:Organization takes time, it won’t happen overnight. Stop worrying about instant results, concentrate on progress.Routines and consistency need to be in place.Spoiler: just when you feel like everything’s done, something will upset it. All the toys are cleaned up? Someone will dump out that huge lego bin with a zillion pieces. That’s just real life and it’s okay. Roll with it and enjoy the stage that you’re in.The good news? You can set your home up with systems to streamline your life. I have six simple things you can do right now to get started.
MAKE YOUR BED
And teach your kids to make their beds too. Keep the bedding simple and as soon as you get up or in my case, after I’ve had a cup of coffee, make your bed. It will instantly make your bedrooms look put together and in reality it takes under a minute to complete.
TAKE IT OUT, PUT IT AWAY
Start working on this TODAY and enforce it with yourself and your family members. It’s such a simple principle but it’s hard to be consistent. I guarantee it will take you less time to put that one thing away than it will to put all the things away at the end of the day.
EVERYDAY A LITTLE SOMETHING
This is my mantra every.single.day. Don’t try to get it ‘all’ done in a day or every day. Just do something each and every day and I guarantee you’ll get over the feeling of I want my house to be clean all at once. With my simple cleaning routine you’ll find that maintaining the basics every day is really the secret to a clean and tidy home.
