I am one who struggles to keep my house together. I love it when everything has a place and it stays that way but the reality is to keep it looking good it takes planning. I believe that your house should rise up to meet you when you walk through the door, thanks Nate Berkus. But with kids and a life that isn’t always possible, unless you have your own live in housekeeper and a cook.Which sadly, I don’t.
So the method that works for me is pretty simple. I MUST stick to my day planner and on each day I write 3 things. Dishes, laundry, floors. Each day I must;
1) Dishes- Do all the dish clean the kitchen. This doesn’t have to be all day. I mean once a day.
2) Laundry- My husband has primary laundry duty around here but there are times when he works late and we get behind. So every day I have to do one load of laundry.
3) Floors- Once a day I vacuum the downstairs.
That is it. If I am able to stick to these 3 tasks each day I have found that my house stays looking pretty good.
