Helpful Hints to Keep Your Home Tidy From a Recovering Messy

Helpful Hints to Keep Your Home Tidy From a  Recovering Messy

 

Guest post by Mandie Stevens


My home spent most of its early days in chaos and complete disarray. No matter how hard I tried, I felt like I was walking around in circles and my house was never in working order. So as a recovering messy, I am here to help others with some simple tips to keep your home organized and clean.


* You need to set a routine and stick with it. Set aside a special time every day and dedicate it to your general cleaning. Have certain days where you deep clean your bathrooms, bedrooms, etc.


* My #1 rule is when I am finished using something, I immediately put it back in its place. Putting it off can turn a small mess into a much larger, harder to handle mess. To make this easier I make sure everything has its own special place.


* Do several walkthroughs through out the day to make sure the house is remaining tidy. The first is after the morning dishes are done. Then midday to see if the children are putting away toys before they pull out more - it's never to early to teach them! Lastly is right before the children go to bed, it's such a nice feeling to wake up to a clean home!


* No matter how clean your home is, no one would know if you have clutter every where. Did I mention I am a recovering pack rat too? You will feel so much better to put those knick knacks and stacks of mail away, leaving clean and clear counters and tables.

Once you get the first general cleaning done, my tips will help you easily keep and cleaner more organized home.
