The following 5 tips is the foundation of a successful house management. They are simple and easy to implement. And will help you to make your house a place where you will want to come back.
5 Rules for Creating Comfortable and Clean House
1. Sort and get rid of unnecessary things.
Getting rid of trash and ordering the right things is essential to keep your house in order. Examine your house. Find a place where there’s the greatest number of accumulated junk. And dedicate 15-30 minutes a day in order to clean such a corner. Divide all things into groups: the necessary, rarely necessary and unnecessary.
Things from the first group should be located in the area where they can be easily reached without a long search. For rarely used items prepare the appropriate place – so that they would not interfere, but could be found by all family members.
As for unnecessary things, it’s recommended to divide them into three parts: give away, throw away and not defined. And the last should be the smallest.
2. Delegate and encourage.
Involve other family members in running the household. Discuss with the family which works should be performed at home and allocate responsibilities among family members. For example, your child or spouse coming back home can buy the necessary products. If you are afraid about what will be purchased, you should do it several times together. The same applies to other cases.
Encourage your family members with a kind word, a smile. Talk about how important it is what they do. Show the value of their contribution to the creation of comfort at home.
And remember, planning, motivation, organization and control – is also a job. And someone must do it.
3. Clean your house gradually every day.
Another key to successful home management is the principle of regularity. Take 15-20 minutes every day for general cleaning, lay things out, wipe the dust, wipe the sink and stove.
Accustom yourself and your loved ones to immediately clean up after themselves. And the house will be fresher, cleaner and more comfortable.
4. Rational use of space.
Optimize space, removing the seasonal and seldom-used things on the upper shelves. Use visualization, tagging shelves and boxes in different colors, markers, etc. Arrange a small basket for garbage in a bathroom and at your computer. This list of tips can go on, but the main thing here is your very individual approach.
5. Plan and control the execution of plans.
Household, finance (including purchases), preparing for holidays and celebrations, menus and much more – all this must be planned beforehand.
As a result, you’ll be able to schedule household chores for a week with the distribution of days and responsibilities. Besides, you’ll have a list of things to do this week, but without being tied to a specific time. This schedule will be a document by which you can control the execution of all tasks at home.
