  1. Dealing with Anything That Comes Through the Door

It’s definitely worthwhile to consider setting up a small area by your front door to act as the landing strip for any incoming items to your living environment.

  1. Do the Dishes After Every Meal

As a matter of fact, this technique will help homeowners stay on top of their kitchen rather than having it turn into a messy space. Certainly, no one in the family wants to do them. But, if you will wait for another meal or until there’s enough to fill your dishwasher, chances are it will just make things feel much easier and more overwhelming to put off and the same goes for throwing or taking out your trash too. If you need to take your trash out, you can have it placed by the front door of your house. Then take it  out the next morning or dispose of it right away during the night so that you’ll get over and done with it.

  1. Laundry

Keep up with the laundry

If you have a washing machine and a dryer at home, you can definitely a little bit of laundry every day. As much as possible, you can spread things out so that you do not feel bogged down by two hundred stinky socks and towels. On the other hand, if you decide to take your dirty clothes to a laundromat, make sure to sort all your clothes as you go. So that everything will be much easier to load into washing machines the moment you get there. In addition to that, fold them before you go home so that you are not dumping baskets out on your bed or sofa and your clothes can go straight into your closets and drawers. If you are not feeling inspired, you can treat yourself by buying a new laundry basket. After all, it’s the little things that count.

  1. Whistle While You Work

Certainly, no one likes to clean the house, but, humming, singing. Even turning up the stereo or even whistling are all great alternatives in order to keep the beat as well as have fun while you are working.

  1. Set a Timer

Time your cleaning

What you will like on most of the items listed below is the fact that it will not take more than twenty minutes a day in total. It is definitely easy to rationalize twenty minutes, however, it is also easy to get completely distracted by emails, phone calls, children, as well as any other project that is tempting you as you try to tackle each house chore. Because of that, you can set a time for five or ten minutes (whichever works best for you) so that when it alarms, you know exactly the amount of time you have left. And, a timer can also help you get back on track easily the moment you find yourself off task.
