Some people believe, that a messy flat brings even more mess to your life. One cannot prove them being right or wrong, as everyone is free to have their own opinion, but you have probably noticed, how much easier it is to study in a clean room. Remember, what a great feeling is to come home after work and simply relax without having a need to clean up. How can you experience it more often? Here are some tips.
#1. Get rid of the things that don’t make you happy anymore
A lot of people have the habit of keeping the old things in the house, even though they are not precious to the anymore. Everything that is in your house should either be useful or pleasant to see otherwise it is just some stuff that takes a place. Cleaning is one of the first steps someone takes when they feel like having their life changed and want to free the space for the new experience.
#2. Be careful with the paper
Not only using paper in not environment-friendly, but also it is the best way to stuff your house with piles of journals you will never read again or books you have barely opened. Imagine your shelves stuffed with pieces of wood. Do you like the image? This is exactly what the press is. Find a time to throw it all away and give away the books you will never read.
#3. Find 15 minutes for cleaning
Spend at least 15 minutes every day to sweep the floor and sort the things on a couple of shelves or vacuum the carpet. If you clean the house like this, you will not need to clean the whole house on the weekend. Remember, weekends are for relaxing.
#4. Find out what clothes you don’t need anymore
How do you do it? In the beginning of the year turn all the hangers with the clothes in the different way you usually do, and once you have worn a piece of clothing, hang the hanger as usual. In a year, check all the hangers that hang backwards and throw away the clothes on them.
#5. Keep your house clean
Once you pay attention, you will notice, that all the mess starts with a dirty cup left on a bedside table or a sweater left on a chair. Wash the cup, put the sweater on its place and water the plants once you have noticed they need water. Do not postpone the things you can do in one second, as not only you can forget about it later, but also other people will leave their things and cups all around the place following your example.
Try to follow these tips for a week and you will surely notice, how coming back home seems to be much more pleasant than before, as instead of forcing yourself to do the washing up you can simply make a cup of tea and relax.
