If you’re a busy mom, running a hectic household; a clean and tidy house can sometimes be a difficult thing to achieve let alone keep on top of. However, it’s always nice to come home to a fresh and clean environment, for both you and your kids. Therefore, it’s worth taking some time to consider what you can do to make your interior space as hygienic and uncluttered as possible so that getting everyone off to school on time is a little less stressful. The following are some tips and ideas for those whose house is in need of sprucing up, ASAP.
It’s Going To Be A Team Effort
It’s worth remembering that your kids can (sometimes) be pretty helpful, and should know that everyone who lives in the house should be given regular chores. Not only will help with the upcoming cleaning efforts, they’ll learn and understand that it’s everybody’s responsibility to keep the house clean and tidy. Putting a rota up on the fridge is a fun way for the kids to tick of their weekly jobs, and perhaps they can earn star stickers that count towards a treat or two.
Sometimes, you’re just going to need more help in the first place; so, whether you bring in a hoarding cleanup team, or hire some cleaners to begin the process; it’ll be well worth your investment. Keeping the motivation and momentum up will ensure that your house becomes a clean sanctuary, that you’ll love returning to each day, you just need to get off on the right foot.
Getting Strict With Stuff
Before you bring out any mops, wipes, or bleach yourselves; go through the whole house and consider if you really need each of the items. You can do one room at a time, and take in a box or bag to fill up with toys, clothes, books, and items that have been sat there, cluttering up your living space for months. Try to think if it holds any sentimental value, or if you and the family would miss using it regularly or not; if the object doesn’t fall into either of these categories, it’s time to get rid of it, so you can keep the space clean and organized.
Holding a yard or trunk sale is a fun way to get the kids involved again, and they can even pick out some items they feel they would like to sell (you may have to edit what they choose). Any profits you make can be split, or given to the children as pocket money; this will encourage them to be mindful of what they’re hoarding in their toy boxes upstairs. You can also donate items to women’s shelters, the homeless, and other charities, as there will always be people who could benefit from owning your unwanted items. By clearing out the clutter, you’ll have fewer surfaces to think about cleaning.
Having a fairly clean, fresh, and tidy interior will make hectic and busy family life a bit easier, so it’s worth some extra effort now, for a better future in your home.
