Let’s face it- being a mom is exhausting! Balancing the family, work, and keeping up with the house chores can leave you feeling like there just isn’t enough time in the day. The current COVID-19 pandemic has families spending a lot of time in their homes, ultimately leading to more cooking, more messes, and more housework. We’ve compiled some tricks to help make your day a bit more efficient and your chores less daunting.
Balance is key to keeping your house clean along with keeping your sanity in tact. A schedule can help ensure you set aside time for tasks you know you would like to complete each week. Once you’ve created your schedule, make a list of tasks you would like to accomplish throughout the week, and then fill in your days with the tasks that make the most sense for your family’s weekly routines. Here is an example:
Monday – plan the week’s meals, clean out fridge, remove any dishes from the sink or dishwasher
Tuesday – laundry & bedrooms
Wednesday – clean bathrooms
Thursday – vacuuming & dusting
Friday – clean the kitchen
Saturday – catch-up day
Trying to squeeze your daily cleaning goals in-between other tasks can make cleaning dreadful. Try to set aside a specific amount of time each day solely for cleaning tasks. This can be 10 minutes to an hour, whatever you feel your schedule can afford without sacrificing your free time or your down time. A healthy balance is key to making this work!
Those miscellaneous objects that haven’t been used in months, clothes that are never warn, or furniture that’s just taking up space can all make keeping the house organized more difficult. Donate or sell unwanted and unused items to eliminate unnecessary clutter in your home.
You’d be surprised the little chores we can keep up with to avoid clutter piling up. Every night before bed give your home a quick walk through to see what can easily be put back in its place, wiped down, or put away. Not only is it a great feeling to go to bed with an organized home, it’s an even better feeling to wake up and not have a mess to tackle in the morning!
While keeping your home in order can be a challenge, these small tips can have you going from feeling disorganized and overwhelmed to feeling like a cleaning rockstar!
