With the new year comes lots of New Year’s Resolutions…some stick, some don’t. Gyms get a lot of new members on January 1 and I’m sure by February 1 a majority of the new members have already fallen off of the wagon.
I’m here to let you in on a more reasonable New Year’s Resolution…Keeping your house tidy! It sounds easy but when you’re working full time, taking care of the kids, cooking, etc. it’s hard to stay on top of the house hold chores! Messes accumulate quickly but this blog exists to help you keep your home tidy in 2021 and in years to come!
Keep it clean! Tidy people don’t typically act messy all day and then clean everything up at the end of the day all at once. It is so valuable and so helpful to keep simple, tiny habits that-when added together-help the overall tidiness of your home! Tidy people are always “tidying” on the down-low…even if they don’t realize it.
Tidy people never run out of cleaning supplies…let’s be honest! What’s on your grocery list? My grocery list tells all my secrets. It shows that I’m not the most tidy person in the world when I need wet mop pads, dish detergent, and more! The tidiest people find cleaning products they love and always stock up on them. EXTRA tidy people even sign up for websites that auto-ship cleaning products to their home every month. I don’t think my level of tidiness will ever achieve cleaning supply shipments delivered to my door step…but who knows…2021 might change me!
You know how they say “never go to bed angry”? Well, it’s kind of the same for tidy people. Tidy people never-ever let the sun go down on filth. Tidy people never watch their favorite show while snuggled up on the sofa while there is a sink full of dirty dishes. Wanna be tidy in 2021? Your motto should be “there’s no better time than now!”
Woven baskets are in right now…BUT, tidy people never store anything on the floor! Take a look around your house…are you tidy? I’m certainly not. Whether it’s the basket by the front door full of shoes or the basket by the back door full of school back packs and lunch boxes…let these go in 2021! This seems to be a secret of tidy people…remove that stack of books from the floor! Instant tidying!
This is one thing I struggle with because I like…stuff. Tidy people do not over decorate! Tidy people strive to only have 1-3 decorative pieces per surface depending on the size. In 2021, less is more.
Whatever your New Year’s Resolution is, I hope you achieve it! If your New Year’s Resolution is to keep your life less cluttered and to keep your home tidy…follow these simple tips! Stay tidy, my friends!
