What makes my weekly cleaning schedule easy, are the things I do everyday. If I spend some time everyday, it all helps. And doing these chores helps if and when unexpected guests show up.
- Make the bed. I always make the bed every day. It is important for me to make my bed since it sets the tone and atmosphere for the day. It’s the little things that make the big difference. If you accomplish one thing, it snowballs to make you want to accomplish the next thing, and the thing after that. It gives you a desire to want to get more things done. And who doesn’t like to curl up in a made bed after a long day?
- Wash the dishes. I wash the dishes after every meal so they don’t pile up. For me, it is important to have a clean kitchen. I just could never work in a messy kitchen. After all, the kitchen is the heart of the house.
- Put things away. I have a home for everything, so whenever I am done with something, I just put it back. This not only saves me time but, it allows for me to remain organized.
- Attend to spills right away. For instance if something spills in the fridge, or anywhere else, I always clean it right away. It is so much easier to clean something when it just happened, instead of waiting for the spill to soak in.
“If you want to change the world, start off by making your bed.”-Admiral William H. McRaven
