It can be so easy for the home to get cluttered, and it can be even easier for us to get seriously overwhelmed! But thankfully, there are some easy habits that people with organized homes do that we can implement ourselves. So try them out and let us know what you think!

Make a To-Do List

By having a cleaning list of regular cleaning and organizing tasks, you will be able to stay on track and reduce the chances of forgetting all of the things that need to be done. But if you’re not a fan of creating paper lists, you can find list-making apps to help keep you on track.

Never Leave a Room Empty-Handed

This one is key to maintaining tidy rooms. As you go around the house, pick up anything that doesn’t belong and carry a laundry basket with you if there’s a lot to be picked up.

Make Use of Downtime

Instead of spending time browsing Facebook while you wait, use those spare minutes to do those quick less-than-a-minute-tasks like picking up out of place items, sweeping the floor, or cleaning the mirror. You’ll be surprised by how much you can get done in those few extra minutes.

Don’t Procrastinate

This is probably the easiest thing to do, but letting all those chores build-up creates even more resentment when doing them. So, find the best time weekly or daily to clean and stick to it. Creating a routine will help keep you from procrastinating and maintain a more organized home.

Keep the Floors Clean

A tidy and organized home doesn’t have things strewn about the floor. So to keep things tidy, find a place for your things instead of throwing them on the floor.

Load the Dishwasher Overnight

One of the best parts of waking up in the morning is waking up to a sink empty of dirty dishes, am I right? So load the dishwasher before bedtime so you have clean dishes to use in the morning.

Don’t Let Spills Linger

It may be easy to just let the crumbs or liquids dropped from dinner sit around, but make sure to clean them up as quickly as possible. Cleaning these spills immediately will help keep your home looking tidier.

Keep Cleaning Supplies Handy

Instead of wasting time looking for your cleaning supplies, keep them all in a caddy together under the sink. This will make it easier to grab your supplies and get cleaning.

Clean Your Fridge Weekly

Cleaning your fridge weekly will reduce clutter, leave room for groceries, and reduce the likelihood of having a stinky odor. So what’s the best time of the week to clean your fridge? The day before trash day.

Don’t Hang Onto Garbage

If you throw out those old receipts, boxes, and junk mail immediately, you’ll be able to reduce garbage and stop the buildup of clutter.


If you struggle with feeling overwhelmed with keeping the home clean, then you definitely need to implement these habits. So feel free to try them out and let us know what you think!
