2. Laundry was also one of my trouble zones so 3 or 4 nights a week I do and put away a load of laundry. It works so much better for me than leaving it all and trying to get it all done in a weekend. When I did that I usually ended up doing about half and then quitting. Or washing it and not putting it away.
3. do some cleaning while waiting for other things. Examples: when I’m cooking dinner, I will get dishes in the sink so they can soak and be easier to wash, I will also pick up trash and dishes around the house and take the trash out. When my daughter is in the shower or bath I will pick up the bathroom or my bedroom which is right outside the bathroom. I’m trying to get in the habit of picking up as I go so that things are less work lately.
4. trying to get my daughter to clean up after herself. Right now I’ve got her to take care of her shoes, put her dishes in the sink, put her laundry away. We are going to add more chores to her list but it’s a good start. I want her to get use to cleaning up after herself.
5. Running the vacuum through the living room/dining room and master bedroom. Our dog sheds a lot so doing this at least once a week keeps it from being too big of a problem. Isabella will help with that sometimes, she’s pretty good with the vacuum.
I’m by no means a clean and tidy person but just doing these 5 simple steps have made my house much cleaner and not such an eye sore. I hope these tips help to teach you how to keep up with cleaning with a bit of ease.
