I LOVE having a clean home, but I truly despise cleaning. I feel so stuck most days. The usual chores of keeping a home clean can pile up before I am aware that there is even a need to start cleaning.
I love a clean kitchen. The living room annoys me if the floor has toys everywhere. Laundry is a never-ending struggle in a house with six people.
I’m never far from being overwhelmed with chores. I had to come up with a way to fix my never-ending list of chores! Since my love of a clean home far outweighs my distaste for cleaning, I came up with some creative ways to keep up on housework.
Here are 5 absolutely easy cleaning tips that I use to keep up on a house full of family!
1 – Clean Once a Day
I sweep through the house once a day, usually in the evening
Pick up trash
Start a new load of laundry
Pick up anything that looks cluttered
Keeping up on these simple chores allows me to focus on other projects during the day
2 – Let the kids help
Give them their own chores
Bedroom, bathroom, clothes
Give reward when completed
3 – Grove Collaborative subscription
Great cleaning supplies
Pick and choose what I what/ don’t want
Shipped once a month
4 – Turn on motivating music
Or a podcast or video
Just something to keep you entertained/distracted while you clean
5 – Set a timer
You don’t need to do everything at once
Set a specific amount of time and stop once the timer goes off
See, it’s easy! Honestly, the hard part is coming up with motivation for getting up from a comfy couch and starting the cleaning process. The only thing that works for me at the moment is that I dislike clutter THAT much.
I hope this post has helped you immensely! Let me know below what tips you use to keep yourself going while you do housework!
