Everybody knows the importance of keeping your home clean, but few people actually have time to do it! There are so many chores that need to be done, and it’s easy to put them off for another day, only to find that you don’t have time to clean at all. Don’t let this happen to you—choose one of these five easy chores to kickstart your day and knock them out before you get distracted by other things!
1) MAKE THE BED
When you make your bed every morning, it’s an easy way to start your day. It’s a small reminder that you accomplished something; and also helps keep your room neater. Psychologically, making your bed tells yourself (and others) that you have things under control... even if everything around isn’t in perfect order. This quick task is the best way to kickstart your day and set yourself up for productivity.
2) PICK UP CLUTTER
First things first: pick up any clutter or mess around your home. Keep everything organized in one specific place so that you can easily find whatever you need later on in the day. Removing clutter and putting things back where they belong is the easiest way to instantly make your home look better. You don't have to reorganize your entire home, just start with what's visible and put it where it belongs.
3) WIPE-OFF SURFACES
This is one of those chores that can go a long way in making your space feel clean and orderly. Every day, wipe off surfaces with a disinfecting wipe or other cleaning product to freshen up the space. It’s an easy habit to get into, but one that will make a big difference over time. You can store disinfectant wipes under the bathroom and kitchen sinks for easy access and wipe the countertops off quickly after use.
4) PUT LAUNDRY AWAY
Washing clothes is time-consuming and exhausting, especially if you have a lot of them. Fortunately, there’s a relatively simple solution: Keep your dirty laundry in two piles—one for items that can go right into the washer, and one for everything else. Then, every day before you hit snooze on your alarm clock, roll up your sleeves and put it all away. Or, you might not need to put laundry away but just pick up the dirty clothes lying around your bedroom and store them in a hamper. This will make your space look cleaner instantly.
5) PUT AWAY DISHES
A sink full of dishes will always make the kitchen look messy, even if the countertops are clear. Take a few minutes after each meal to put your dishes away. Most of us are too tired or preoccupied to think about chores when we’re eating, but if you just take a moment after each meal to do so, your kitchen will stay clean and you’ll have an easy-to-follow routine. This small task can make all the difference for your kitchen!
