Fall is here and there is nothing better than spending time at home with friends and family. I tend to host more during the Fall and Winter months, which means I need to have my place clean and ready to-go at all times. As impractical as that sounds, there have been a few things that I’ve done that help keep my place clean and tidy!
#1. Clean As You Cook
The one area of my home that gets out of control the quickest is my kitchen. It would always seem like no matter how many times I could clean it would never be tidy. Then I realized its because I never clean up right away. Taking the time to clean while you’re preparing a meal will make a huge difference after you’re done enjoying your meal!
#2. Swiffer/Sweep Before Bed
This can be such a quick and easy task that I used to put to the side. I have a long haired cat, so this is especially important for pet owners. just take 5 mins to Swiffer your floors each night and it will lighten your load in the long run.
#3. Make Your Bed (Every Morning)
Making your bed everyday can really help you mentally while also keeping your room tidy. When I make my bed I feel like I’ve already completed one task for the day which sets my mind up to keep checking tasks off my list!
#4. Wipe Everything Down Daily
I won’t lie, there have been times when I’ve looked at my counters or my sink and can’t even remember how the mess happened. I love using cleaning wipes for my counters and sink because its quick and easy. For my bathroom and floors, I love using Pine-Sol! The smell instantly makes me think of a fresh clean home! The Lavender Clean scent has to be my favourite! There are lots of Pine-Sol scents to choose from that will make your home clean and smell wonderful!
#5. Put All of Your Clothes Away
I am notorious for getting all of my laundry done, folding it, and leaving it on the couch. (I know I’m not the only one) Get yourself in the mindset of just putting all your clothes away. Dedicate two minutes to putting them away as fast as possible and that way when your looking for that blouse, you will actually be able to find it!
