Ten Simple Habits to Keep the House Looking Organized on a DAILY Basis

bulletin board with daily remindersThe key to this list is doing these things on a DAILY basis. Now I know some of you will think I’m crazy for thinking you can do all of this every day. So don’t. Start small and start with conquering a few. Add in more as you can and assign some of these to family members if they’re willing to help out.

  1. Make all beds.
  2. Put away the remote controls or Wii gaming parts and pieces.
  3. Clear the kitchen countertops of food and dirty dishes. Just keeping on top of clean and dirty dishes will make a huge difference in the kitchen.
  4. Put stray pens and pencils in a pencil cup. If you don’t have a pencil cup, use a mug from the kitchen.
  5. Push in the chairs and stools in the kitchen or dining room.
  6. Gather all paper and mail into a decorative basket in your office or on your credenza.
  7. Take out the recycling and trash. Bottles and bags sitting around make for a cluttered mudroom or kitchen.
  8. Hang up purses and coats instead of using the back of chairs or the kitchen table.
  9. Use one basket to collect hair products in the bathroom and one pouch or basket to collect makeup. After your morning routine, return the items into their “home.”
  10. Hang up and put away clothes on a daily basis.

How many of these tasks have you done today?
