There’s no big secret to making sure your home is always in its best condition. You just really need diligence. We tend to forget that the little routine chores for taking care of our homes can have a big impact. So, here’s a simple list for you to keep track of what you need to do regularly as a responsible homeowner:
1. Sort the mail
Always start your day by going through the mail. These are things that could easily pile up if you don’t manage them. If the mail is unimportant, consider shredding or tossing it already into the trash or recycling bins. For the important ones, keep them and make sure to address them immediately, whether they are bills or messages you need to act on. That way, it won’t be a hassle to keep track of your mail as well.
2. Clean the dishes piled in the sink
You know that relationship advice that suggests you should never go to bed angry at each other? Well, it’s also great advice to never go to bed with dirty dishes in the sink. Those can pile up and leave you with no clean dishes to use. Make sure they’re all washed at the end of the day so that you can wake up to a clean and refreshing kitchen.
3. Wipe down tables and counters
Dust will always settle in your house so you have to wipe your tables and counters from time to time. Even if you’ve been living in your home for years, clean furniture can make your place look brand new. Plus, this should be an easy task without those dishes or junk mail in the way.
4. Sweep the floor
After you wipe things down, the dust and dirt might settle on the floor so it’s best if you also make sure to sweep it. A clean floor will also help avoid slips and other accidents.
5. Organize your shoes by the front door
Just like mail, shoes can also easily clutter the house as most people leave their shoes lying around anywhere. So before bed, every night, gather the shoes strewn around but leave one pair per person by the front door. Take the other pairs to the closets and bedrooms where they belong. Each person will still have a pair close by, but your house won’t look like a mess.
These five things are very simple, but if you complete them all in a day, it’s already considered a major win.
