Organizational Tips

Cleaning can be easier if you follow a cleaning plan and use effective cleaning techniques. Assigning household chores to family members helps get the work done faster and teaches responsibility.

  • Involve your family members – then there will be more time for Family Fun!
  • Don’t delay . . . get started.
  • Make a convenient place for everything.
  • Clean one room at a time.
  • Learn which one to throw or give it away.
  • Eliminate running back and forth by putting the cleaning supplies in a bucket or carry all.
  • Choose the hardest chore first.
  • Clean everything ie from top to bottom
  • Do the same for each room in same order - windows, dusting, floors.
  • Work  on a particular area at a time.
  • Create convenient areas to store kitchen equipment ie. pie plates, cake pans, etc.
  • Play upbeat music while you clean.
  • Don’t be distracted by the phone. Clean while talking – use the cordless.
  • Use paper plates more often.
  • Serve dinner buffet style to eliminate cleaning serving dishes.
  • Bake while you do dishes – dovetail tasks – iron while doing laundry.
  • Clean as you go – wipe out sinks with dirty towels; squeegee shower stalls after each use.
  • Use odd moments to do odd jobs.
  • Utilize a junk drawer for miscellaneous items.
  • Put things in order before going to bed. Less clutter gives you more time, money and energy
