If clutter stresses you out, then it’s time to adopt some new habits that’ll allow you to keep your home organized daily. So check out the habits down below and try adopting them this week! 🙂

Make Your Bed

Getting into a new routine can be difficult, which is why we love the tip that you should always start the day by making your bed. This means the first part of your routine is always completed straight away, leaving you to go about your day with a success already on your plate.

Set Places

Having a set place for all the items in your home can ensure a quicker cleaning process, as you will always know where items are meant to be. And sometimes, people who have set places for items can more likely adhere to tidying and cleaning routines because they have invested time into planning how they want their home to look, including storage spaces.

Set Deadlines

Rather than saying you’ll carry out tasks at some point, set yourself a schedule and deadline to work to. This means you can’t allow tasks to go on uncompleted for weeks or months on end.

Use Lists

Instead of trying to remember all the tasks and chores you have to do in your home, it can be more prudent to work off of a written list. Writing a to-do list each night means you are fully informed and prepared when you wake up each day for what needs to be done. It also acts as a visual reminder in case you get side-tracked.

Stick to One Task

Rather than multitasking and doing a whole lot of nothing, organize your home one part at a time. Focus on a single task and do it well rather than trying to accomplish lots of tasks and doing them poorly. You will also then have a sense of accomplishment after each task that can help keep you motivated.

Utilize Wall Space

If you have a small home or simply a lack of storage, you can also utilize wall space to help you organize your home. Invest in some floating shelves, and designate these as the appropriate place for plants, books, or ornaments.

Ask for Help

Organized people know that, if a job is too big, it may be good to call in for back-up. You may hire someone, or even have a cleaning party with your friends.


Organization isn’t something you can either do or not do. It is entirely possible for someone who, up until this point, has been very unorganized, to change their behaviors and have an organized home and lifestyle.
