Ok so I'm not quite a neat freak, and no my house isn't spotless, but I want to become more scheduled with my cleaning routine. Some of these I do already... and some I plan to start doing. I have found that if I start the day off on the right foot it carries into the rest of the day & sometimes the rest of the week. I also feel more peaceful and relaxed to have the house neat & tidy. So take a peek and see if there's something you can start implementing into your daily routine. I think if you start with one at a time then slowly build onto each one, eventually you'll be in thehabit of doing them daily and can enjoy your household a little more.
Make the bed first thing in the morning
Clean the counters & kitchen sink before bed
Do the dishes/ load dishwasher before bed
Unload dishrack/dishwasher in the morning
Sweep floors before bed
I think just doing those 5 seemingly simple tasks regularly, can smooth the transition into the rest of your cleaning regiment and result in a more relaxed YOU. Because who wants to wake up to a sink full of dirty dishes?! And hopefully it'll allow me to get a schedule for doing the laundry as well. I'm going to start picking a couple specific days a week, with a blocked off time frame just for washing & drying, then another time frame for folding & putting away. Of course sometimes life will get in the way... and that's okay too. Happy Cleaning!!
