Keeping control of clutter by taking the habit of completing six basic everyday tasks that will help you to keep chaos at bay and you in control.

I know that everybody has a busy life these days and how hard is to keep control of clutter without spending too much time with cleaning and tidying. Home Organization, De-clutter and House Cleaning walk side by side on the war against chaos to keep a calm, clean and clutter free home.

Today I will talk about the basics to keep your house clean everyday. Getting into the habit of completing these basics tasks every day will help you to keep chaos at bay with only a few minutes of work.

1. Make the Bed every day

A crisply made bed makes the whole room seem more organized and less likely that you will let other things pile up, such as clothing on the floor, paper on the bed and used glasses and bottles on the bedside tables.

2. Sort the Mail

Sort all the mail as soon as they come inside and preferably sort in 3 folders or trays as Bills, Filling and To Read. Keep a paper bin close to the sorting area for junk mails.

3. Manage Clutter

Every time before you leave a room, have a look around and see if there is anything out of place, pick it up and put it where it belongs. Make sure that other family members can follow with this simple rule too.

4. Wash as you Cook

Wash your pots and dishes or put it in the dishwasher as you prepare the meals to avoid a sink full of dishes and pots after dinner. A few minutes spent before will leave you with more time later to rest and enjoy a chat with the family at the table.

“Whether is makeup on the bathroom countertop or tomato sauce on the cooktop, anything is faster and easier to remove if it’s done immediately.”

6. Always clean the kitchen

Every evening after dinner gets the habit of washing the dishes or loading the dishwasher, clean the countertop and sweep the floor. There is nothing better than starting the day with a clean and clutter-free kitchen.
