1. They Start Their Day Off By Making The Bed
Although making the bed is a task that takes two minutes, it can have monumental effects on the feel of your home and also on how you feel when you get home each day. I learned this very early in my life because of my Mother, an entrepreneur of a major cleaning company! She never let me or my brother leave in the morning without doing this step first.
2. They Wash Clothes More Often
People whose home is always clean, wash clothes regularly. They do not leave clothes to wash on the weekend, but instead, they wash as soon as they have enough clothes for a load. Yes, this is true, it is better to just get them done with a load at a time rather than saving a few loads for the end of the week! Don’t we all just want to relax on our weekend?

3. They Keep Papers in The Right Place
These people keep their papers organized and controlled. They separate them based on whether they will be recycled or stored in the proper folder for future reference. If those papers just get stacked up in a junk pile, then you put more work for yourself. (..and no one needs that!)
4. They Clean the Refrigerator
They clean the refrigerator often. Dirt and clutter can accumulate in the refrigerator in the form of spoiled food or spillage. And sometimes, your refrigerator could need urgent cleaning without you knowing it (such as meat juices draining and spilling at the bottom of your fridge).
5. They Put Shoes and Coats In The Right Place
They make sure that shoes are not just thrown around the house. And the same goes for coats. A simple tip is to take off your shoes when you get home and put them in the closet. Make sure that you enforce this as a rule as well with your coats.
6. They Make Sure Dishes Are Washed After Use
People with always clean homes never leave dirty dishes in the sink and they do not allow the kids to do so either. A good tip is to get rid of the dirty dishes before going to sleep. This will give you fewer dishes that need to be cleaned in the morning after breakfast. My mother always taught me that it’s best to wake up in the morning without a chore first thing! It helps you feel less stressed and more “put together.”
7. They Store Things After Use
These people also make sure to put all objects where they belong. Putting things back from where they were taken ensures that everyone will know where to look for things and keep the house clean and tidy.
8. They Dust & Vacuum Regularly
They vacuum daily or as often as they can. If you dust and vacuum the house weekly, your house will be cleaner and you’ll save time since you won’t have to do a huge cleaning every month or two. Things will stay presentable for longer.
Keeping the home clean and organized can feel pretty overwhelming, but thankfully, there are great ways to make this easier. Especially when you’re building daily and weekly habits that will cut down on cleaning time!
These are my top 8, and they work every time. Being more organized helps all of us stay organized and on top of things, Like they say, Time is money!
