Have you ever walked into someone’s spotless home and wonder how they do it? The secret is revealed and it isn’t nearly as exhausting as one would think. The magic word is upkeep! Learning to make minor adjustments to your daily routine to ensure that things are being tended to as they are seen rather than all at once and make you seem like the cleaning superstar all your friends envy!
- Tidy people wouldn’t dream of going to bed with dishes in the sink. They know that doing a quick sweep for out-of-place-items every night before bed will help them and their home get a fresh start in the morning
- When neat people take something out, they put it away. When they walk in the door and take off their shoes, they put them in the closet, not scattered in the hall
- When tidy people see something extra that needs doing, they jump on it. Maybe they notice their bathroom faucet is filthy so they wipe it down even if it’s not their “day” to clean the bathroom
“Keeping up with the clutter frequently makes it an easy, do-able task rather than an overwhelming chore.”
