Chore Time Help

I don’t know a mother alive that doesn’t look for ways to cut down the time they must spend on a daily to weekly basic cleaning and clearing up around their homes. At the end of the day, there are other things we would like to do as well, and the easier and quicker we can get through these, the sooner we can sit back and relax. Since this is something I share with other mothers, we are constantly banding together to find out the ways in which we can get our schedules as efficient as possible so that we can enjoy other things in life.

 

Not only do we want all of our rooms to be clean, but a nice bathroom upgrade is something that is always great to have as it is one of the few places where I can take a break and have a long comforting bath. You would be surprised to know that not everyone knows how to clean a showerhead, but I think every mother should know this as it is an essential element to being a housewife. I know that there are many out there that hate the idea of doing housework and I am one of them. But when it is over and done with, I am the happiest person in the house and there are ways that you can cut down on the time it takes to keep your house clean and in pristine condition. The following are some ways in which you can get housework done quicker.

 

Decluttering

Cleaning can take up a lot of time, but I find one of the best ways to cut down on it significantly is by decluttering the house as much as possible as this makes it that much easier to go through the entire house with vacuums to reach every corner. When there is less stuff on floors, I can dust quicker, pick up items with ease, and then put them away. If you find that you are spending lots of time on mundane chores, then it may be because you have never thought to declutter and you might want to get started. There are even courses available that can teach you how to deal with these issues and clean them up as problems arise.

This may not seem like the best option out there, but I promise you that once you learn how to let go and not have a place that is absolutely 100% clean all of the time, it is that much easier to be fine with it all and decrease stress levels. Keep in mind that there is a difference between a cluttered house and a house that is filthy. If you vacuum once a week, maybe once every ten days won’t kill you. Instead of cleaning rooms regularly, you can always just clean them as they need cleaning. You don’t want to wait until areas are super dirty, but you should be careful and pay attention so that things stay in check and don’t get out of hand.
