The saying a clean home is a happy home. If you have ever experienced coming home from a trip to a dirty house, you can most likely relate the fact that you were not happy about everything that is in front of you.
Having a clean house with those beautiful crisp vacuum lines and a spotless kitchen and entirely fresh bathroom is something you just can’t beat. I understand because we all get busy with like and have so much going on and really don’t want to spend a bunch of money on keeping our house clean.
A few tips that I have learned is to pick up the main rooms in your home where you spend the majority of your time. Tidy up those spaces every day without expectation. Even if it’s just 15 minutes a day, this will allow you to reduce clutter buildup and save you time a frustration as the week winds down. And i don’t know about you but its typically must more delightful to relax in a clean environment.
One thing I had learned that is hard for people is for them to get into a habit of doing the dishes before you got to bed. Once you start the pattern, you will never go back to leaving dishes in the sink. Waking up to a clean kitchen just seems to put people in a much better mood, and you don’t have to stress about it in the morning. My wife tends to call it a nighty tidy. Just making you clean the entire kitchen and wipe down the countertops before you head to bed, and it will be great.
One way to declutter things is to not allow shoes on in the house; It makes it to where you have to take them off and put them on a shelve in the garage. Some might consider this rude to guests, but there are so many germs that are on the bottom of our shoes that many just make it a habit and would prefer to keep the family healthy.
For your carpets, make sure next time you vacuum to deodorize your carpets and rugs. Just sprinkle a little baking soda and let it sit then vacuum it up. Its something we don’t usually think about but makes a huge difference.
Keeping your house clean is one thing, but fixing small household problems and hiring help for those much needed deep cleans a few times a year is another. If you choose to do that, just make sure you organize the chaos, and it gives the house cleaner to have a more significant focus on things that really need their attention.
Those are just a few ways to be able to keep your house clean on a budget.
