Do you find yourself running around like headless chicken, whenever unexpected guests turn up? Now, imagine, how pleasant life would be if your house was one of those, that become guest-ready in just a few minutes!
What if we were to tell you that it isn’t as difficult as you think it is. All it needs is some discipline and doing a few things around the house on a daily basis. Read on to know the 7 things people with clean houses do each day and be inspired to follow suit!
1. Make Your Bed
Experts believe that making your bed first thing in the morning doesn’t just keep your home looking tidy, but also has a psychological impact on you and sets the tone for the rest of your day.
2. Keep Your Kitchen Clean
A kitchen is the heart of a home and a great place to start organizing your home with. Make it a point to do the dishes after every meal, or at least keep the used dishes in the sink. And don’t forget to wipe those countertops clean!
3. Don’t Let Paper Clutter Pile Up
Nothing makes a home appear more cluttered than a stack of random papers. Throw away any junk receipts and papers that you don’t need, before they begin to pile up. If you aren’t comfortable just throwing away something, make a soft copy of it before getting rid of it.
4. No Tossing Your Stuff When You Enter Home
A long, tiring day at work, and the first thing you want to do when you enter home is to toss your bag and things aside and sink into the couch. No! Let’s retrace our steps, shall we? Put all your things in their designated places first. The couch isn’t going anywhere!
5. Get Rid Of All Cardboard Boxes
Online shopping is here to stay. But that doesn’t mean all the cardboard boxes need to as well. Boxes don’t just make your home appear unkempt but also eat up a lot of space. Get rid of them, soon as you’re done using them.
6. Trash Expired Items From The Pantry
Many a time we pick up something from the supermarket and shelve it for months without realizing that it may have expired. Trash all the items from your pantry that you haven’t used in a long time and that are nearing expiration.
7. No Clothes Gathering On Chairs
Put all your clothes away every day, before bed and don’t give them a chance to gather on a chair or on the floor!
