5 Habits of Keeping A Clean Home

When I was a young mom I use to think there was a big secret to keeping a home cleaned and organized, a secret I just didn't know yet.  It took me some time to realize that there really isn't some type of secret formula to keeping a house clean it's really just creating habits for yourself that when they are done everyday creates a routine that keeps your home picked up and clean.  I think routines are essential for so many aspects of our lives but especially for our homes.  It is so important to create an atmosphere that is calm and as stress free as possible. I think the key is allowing ourselves enough time to get these jobs done throughout our day.  Even if completing one job is the only thing completed all day, it is an accomplishment that puts you ahead instead of running behind. I have created these habits for myself to help keep my home clean and organized!

     1. Make the beds everyday.  This job takes maybe 3 minutes to complete but it is the job that once completed, sets the stage for success for the rest of the day.
     2.  Wipe down the bathrooms.  Most days is just wiping toothpaste off the mirror, swishing the toilet, putting out a clean hand towel and clearing off the counter tops.  The bathroom is ready for the family at the end of the day and should an unexpected guest pops in for a visit, the bathroom is fresh and clean.
     3.  Wash the dishes everyday.  Never put off doing the dishes until later or the next morning.  If you have time, wipe off the counter tops now and put everything away.
     4.  Take out your trash and recyclables.  This is really very simple, if the trash is full, take it out.  Empty the trash cans in the bathrooms and bedrooms in your home.  Don't let the recyclables pile up on the counter, put them in the recycle bin through out the day.  Not only will this keep you kitchen clean but it will help it smell clean too.
     5.  Do a load of laundry everyday.  Don't let the laundry pile up so everyone runs out of clothes.  The more you can keep up with the laundry the less clothes and towels the family will need which will help keep your home neat and organized

These are the 5 habits that I have created for myself to do everyday.  Most days these are completed easily and some days I am happy to have made my bed!  Check out the video for more info!

  1. I'm visiting for the first time from the Hearth & Soul hop. From your blog description, it sounds like you might work outside the home too, so I applaud you forming such diligent habits. I didn't spot anything on your list about recruiting help, so I do hope your dear ones pitch in as they are able. But I agree, little and often seems to be the knack to maintaining a little inner calm.

  3. I totally agree with the dishes. Nothing gets my day going than coming into a kitchen with no dishes in the sink. ;) I have little ones and a stay at home dad that isn't the biggest cleaner. Most days I am putting toys back in the play room and straightening up the pillows to make it look like adults live in this house.
