Living in modernity humans are wired to live in organised homes. Cluttered homes can reflect a cluttered mind. In a globalised world where most are forced to work forty plus hour weeks, it can be hard to find time to keep your home organised and declutttered. This guide will include five handy tips to keeping your home organised without hiring a housekeeper.
A decluttered and organised home doesnt reflect a home that is free from stuff. It just reflects a home that has smart storage.
When I was a child, my mother would berate me to clean my room and I would never bother vacuuming or using unnecessary chemicals. What I would do was put stuff away. I would hide any inconvenience her pieces of clutter under the bed. My mother would come in and inspect the room thirty minutes later, none the wiser (she probably was) to what wasn’t a really clean room, rather a decluttered, organised room.
What does this proverbial example show, it shows that not only does the removal of clutter trick mothers into thinking that rooms are clean, it shows that the intelligent use of storage and space can make the most cluttered rooms appear organised.
Work as you go
Waiting until the end of the week to do all your cleaning will leave your home more cluttered and disorganised than if you had just picked up after yourself. It also means that it will take a lot longer to clean in the long run.
Don’t leave your clothes in the bathroom after having a shower, get a clothes basket and put all your dirty clothes in there for wash at the end of the week. It may seem obvious to some but you’d be surprised just how little time busy people have to get these type of things done.
Keep to chores schedule
Just like working as you go, keeping a chore schedule can prevent you from having to call in professional house cleaning services.
Have a chore schedule to declutter your home once every three months. To do this, you need to throw out any old clothes or clutter that has been lying in the deepest crevasses of your home.
These tips and more will be more than helpful to declutter your home and keep it organised. Keep an eye out for more cleaning hints and tips in the future.
