In today’s fast-paced world and everyone trying to make ends meet, it’s easy for one to neglect his/her home. This leads to a buildup of clutter, leaving your home disorganised and dirty. Most people get discouraged at this point and will keep postponing general cleaning. You don’t however need to fall in such a mess. Outlined below are a few tips and tricks on how to keep your home neat even when time isn’t on your side.
1. Keep Everything Where It Should Be
The first step to an organized home is keeping everything where it belongs. This is anything from dinner plates, spoons, shoes, and bobby bins. Keeping everything in its ‘home’ reduces clutter significantly.
2. Take Advantage Of Space In Your House
There’s more space in your home than you can think of. Get creative and convert those crannies and nooks in the house into storage spaces. Start by investing in storage bins that fit perfectly under the bed, make use of vertical space and shelves, and even consider furniture that doubles up as storage spaces. Creativity is all you need to maximize the available space in your home. The additional space should take care of any toys or items that didn’t have a ‘home’.
3. Categorize Items
One way to do this is by keeping things that serve the same purpose together. Keep pens, pencils, rubbers, etc. in one place. The same applies to spoons, bowl, utensils, toys, etc. While it might seem like a hard thing to do, it’s logical when you get used to it. It will also make it easy for you to find an item when you need it.
4. Discard Anything You Don’t Need/Use Anymore
Have you ever looked in your closet and wondered, where did all these come from? Most personal items and stuff build up over time, most of which you no longer need. This could be the movie album you had since high school to the cups your grandma gave you when you moved to live alone. Getting rid of the items you no longer need not only creates space but makes it easier to keep your home neat.
5. Do A 15-Minute Cleanup Every Day
If you have a habit of postponing house chores and especially doing the dishes, general cleaning, and laundry, chances are your home will become cluttered in no time. Making it a habit of sparing at least 15 minutes of your time to wipe here and there, keep everything where it belongs, and doing the dishes will save you lots of frustration in days to come. This is the secret to keeping your home neat.
