How to make your household work less hectic?
One of the hardest and unrewarding jobs is household work. There is so much to do, and no matter how much effort and hard work you put into it, it never seems enough. Women who are homemakers do so much to keep the house clean, attractive while making sure that they feed their children, make amazing dishes, and so on.
It is tougher for women who are working because they not only have to stay top on their work, but they have to clean the house, make sure the kids complete their homework, clean dishes, and so on.
All this makes you lazy with your cleaning and household work, especially because it takes forever to clean the house, and it doesn’t even look clean.
But no matter what, you cannot relax or chill in a home that looks like a mess. You need to have a clean house to have fun and forget all your worries.
So, how do you make your household work less hectic? By following these tips.
Designate a place for every item
No matter how small or how big an item is, you need to have a place for it. Having a designated place for every item helps you keep the house organized and clean. Moreover, your kids, parents, partners, and even the guests will know where to put things after using them, so the chances of having a mess will be less.
Make a calendar using Canva
Design a family calendar using Canva and hang it in your kitchen or the living room. On the calendar, you can mark important dates like anniversaries, birthdays, or school meetings, or parties, and so on.
It will help you and your family prepare yourself and the house for important occasions. You can even leave important messages on it, and it will help the entire family be on one page.
Have simple ideas for kids
If you have small kids, you need to understand that your house will look a little messy. One way you can try to keep it a little organize is by involving the kids in decision making when it comes to their toys, books, or clothes. Also, use simple techniques for them, like instead of hanging the court, have a basket for them.
Divide the cleaning of your house over the whole week
When we get a call that our relatives or some guests are coming over, we start scrubbing the whole house to try and make it look clean. If you get a one-day notice, it sounds ok. But if you have a whole week’s notice, then you need to be smart about it. Instead of cleaning the whole house in one night, divide the cleaning work by doing the kitchen one day, and your room the other day, and so on.
This way, you will be able to clean the house too and you won’t tire yourself out. You can practice this method, even for general cleaning of the house.
Have storage in every room
When you have a family, you have a lot of stuff. To ensure that your house doesn’t overflow with things, have small storage in every room. It will keep the house clean and if you have kids, they can play with their toys in any room, because they will have storage to keep them away everywhere.
Organize your cleaning supplies
You want to keep your house clean and for you that you need cleaning supplies, but every room needs different supplies. Cleaning supplies for the kitchen will be different from the bathroom and furniture. So, it is best to keep them organized, like supplies for the kitchen should be in the kitchen and so on. It will save you time that you may spend tracking them in the whole house.
Have a running list
Maintain a list of all the things you need to or all the supplies you are low on. A list will ensure that you don’t run of essential things at the last minute ensuring chaos.
Maintain separate storage for seasonal stuff
It is important that you keep things you need currently in front of your eyes, and put away the rest of the stuff. You don’t need coats in summers, so keep them in a storage box so that you have stuff for summer clothes.
