penny1403 : A friend of my mum once said that if you have a house free of clutter and it looks like everything is in its correct place, people (and yourself) are not going to inspect your floors for dust and crumbs. I think that some truth exists in that statement, if you have lots of stuff everywhere, even if you’ve cleaned your floors and dusted your space can still appear disorganized and cluttered and adds to the perception that its not clean even if it is.
More stuff equals more to clean and tidy. Limit what you keep in your home and put things away as you go. If you have pets inside close doors to certain rooms so they can’t drop hairs everywhere and jump on all your furniture that looks like a nice place to nap! Less rooms accessed equals less rooms to clean as often.
Consider buying wash and wear fabric clothes. Less ironing for you. Batch cook and freeze so you contain major kitchen mess to one day a week.
Have certain days assigned to certain tasks. Routine helps. You don’t have to dedicate time to thiniing about what you have to do. You just do it because towels get washed on a friday and the bathroom gets a good scrub on the first saturday of every month etc
The biggest tip though is sometimes you just have to close your eyes to whatever needs to be done and leave it for another day. 😉
