We all lead hectic lives, and there’s no doubt about it. On a daily basis, all of us have to shuffle between our kids, general house work, and our jobs and this can take a toll on the better of us, on any given day. With all these things that you do, it can be very easy to concur a backlog, and when that gets piled up over a period of time, it would really be a traumatizing sight to go back and complete them! Nobody has the time and the energy to organize their homes on the go.
But then again, you don’t need to allocate one single day to do all of these things. It would be completely stressful and this might even influence you to give up at a point of time, and it would totally land you back to square one. Also, you don’t need to hire a cleaning crew or a full-time personal organizer to do these things for you! They are tremendously expensive, and might not get the job done as per your liking, all the time!
Take a break. Don’t fret. Here are methods you can follow to keep your home clean and organized, so that you don’t have to spend those two days of weekend time you get (very precious days that you get to just relax and let go) on organizing your home! Once you follow a disciplined methodology, everything else will just fall into place and you won’t need to worry about organizing your home on a daily basis!
Read on to know the four simple and easy everyday methods you can go about to avoid organizing your home on a weekly set basis!
Keep Your Clothes off the Floor
A lot of people live in big families, with very less space. A lot of us have the tendency to throw clothes wherever we want to, once we’re done using them. The major negative factor associated with this is that even if you have a lot of space to work with, these cluttered clothes will appear to make your room look as if you don’t have any space at all. To avoid this, you can buy a hamper, and encourage the people in your family and yourself included, to chuck the clothes into these hampers so that they will reside in one single and easily accessible location!
Make Your Beds and Clear Your Nightstands
The best way to make your rooms look neat is by having made beds at all times. Made beds bring in an element of neatness along with it and appear beautiful. Unorganized beds make rooms look untidy and in some cases, may even cause anger among some people! It’s true! To avoid this, whenever you’re done using your beds, make them with cleanly folded blankets. You will also have to ensure that you have placed your pillows properly, and have taken measures to avoid any ripples that might occur after a day’s usage of your bedsheets. Once you get used to this daily routine, it won’t seem like a stretch to complete this task at all, and it would take you lesser and lesser time each and every day. In the case of your nightstand, you must place only whatever you require on top of it, like books, pens, and your night lamp. If you end up placing anything else on top of it, it might end up looking shabby and unorganized, which is exactly what you do not want!
Create a Minimal Space to do Your Laundry
We choose to have our laundry rooms cluttered with things that we don’t need. In India, a lot of us have it in service balconies which are already cluttered with many things! Sometimes, the lack of a huge space for your laundry room can be a really pleasing sight. Choose to keep your washers in confined places with a minimal setting. However, if you decide to have a place like this, this means that the entire place must be uncluttered. This implies that you have to do away with piling clothes on top of the washers and just keep it void of anything other than the detergents you need and other important items!
Make Your Hallway More Viable
One of the most accessed places in any house is the front hallway. This is where the people who enter or exit the house pass through. Keeping this place organized is very crucial to making your house look uncluttered, overall! Keep it plain and simple by not having a lot of things existent in the space so that people who enter do not feel constrained. The hallway must serve its purpose and that is to just make it easier for people who enter and leave the house. As soon as somebody enters your house, they must be made to feel at home as early as possible, and maintaining a hallway which is very viable will solve this problem.
