House Cleaning Schedule
Creating a good house cleaning schedule can be key in
keeping your house clear from clutter. Nobody
expects you to have a spotless house but with the use of
a house cleaning schedule you will soon find that the house
seems cleaner and you are less stressed
Teach everyone in your house to put things back when they’re finished with them.
If everyone would do this one thing, the amount of clutter you have in your home
could be greatly reduced. It would also help if everyone put their clothes in
the hamper after bathing or showering rather than leaving the wet towels and
clothing in the floor of the bathroom.
|| House cleaning – it’s a necessary evil if you want your home
to be livable and pleasant to be in. You want to be able to have guests and that
may not be possible if your house is always a mess. When it comes to cleaning,
you don’t have to deep clean every day. You can start little and see big results
in no time with the use of a house cleaning schedule.|
One of the easiest ways to start small and get something accomplished is to work
while you’re watching television. Commercials take two to five minutes every
fifteen minutes of a television show. Why not take that time and go through
stacks of mail, fold a load of laundry, clean out a desk drawer, or wash a few
dishes. If you do this during each commercial break, you can see big results in
just one evening of watching your favorite television shows.
Instead of letting things go, do things as you see that they need to be done.
Don’t wait until tomorrow if it’s something that can be done in a short period
of time. For instance, if you’ve had a glass of water or something else to drink
while watching TV, don’t leave the glass in the living room or den. Take it into
the kitchen when you go through or before you go to bed for the night.
Set aside blocks of fifteen to thirty minutes each day.
Focus on doing one thing at a time. Write specific tasks
you would like to complete on your calendar. Here’s an
idea of what this would look like:
* Monday – Clean out one desk drawer. Throw away any
pens that don’t work, straighten it up, and put things
* Tuesday – Find and file all bills that need to be paid
in a particular folder so they’ll be easy to find.
* Wednesday – Clean out one dresser drawer. Purge any
socks that are mismatched, ensure everything is in good
repair before folding and replacing, and get rid of
anything you haven’t used in six months to a year.
* Thursday – Empty one refrigerator shelf or drawer,
wash it, and then throw out anything that has expired.
Make a list of items you need to replace.
* Friday – Tackle the pile of shoes in a clothes closet.
If shoes no longer fit and aren’t worn, put them in a
bag or box, and take them to a local charity.
* Weekend – Take time to work together as a family to
tackle one large clutter problem. Remember that many
hands make light work
De-cluttering your home may seem like a daunting task,
especially if you’ve let clutter rule for too long. You
can start small, see big results, and then conquer
clutter once and for all if you work a little at a time.
As you can see, using a house cleaning schedule enables you
to clean multiple rooms and places in the home without
causing you to over exert yourself.

and then start on another until your home is the way you
