Like so many things, living in an apartment can be beneficial to your life, and yet challenging at the same time. One of these challenges can be keeping your place clean and organized. A cluttered and dirty apartment can lead to a feeling of being overwhelmed that can in turn make home life feel unproductive. Below, we list three things that will help you get your apartment in order, and will assist you in keeping it that way.
1. Schedule your day on your phone – The Calendar Alarm app allows you to make a schedule where you will be notified on each to-do with an alarm. We all lead busy lives, and usually juggle a variety of tasks that can range from our careers, education, kids, and home duties. So, the best way to make sure you are getting to everything that needs to get done in your day is to schedule it. Challenge yourself to keep a schedule for one week, and you will see how much more organized and productive your days are.
2. Hang a large wall calendar in your kitchen – This calendar can be a tangible solution to you keeping your place clean. Write down a chore for each day of the week and hang it in your kitchen so you are sure to see it. Then, check off the chore as you get it done. One chore a day can prevent them from adding up, which means you get back your precious weekends. What’s more, is that you will be surprised to learn that it will only take you 10 minutes to clean your bathroom, now that you’re staying on top of it.
3. Wash one load of laundry a day – Whether you are washing laundry for a family of four, or just for yourself, it can surprisingly add up. Most people find themselves having to dedicate a whole day out of the week just to get their laundry done. Something that will save your time and sanity is to try and wash one load of laundry a day. Consciously mix tasks, such as going to the kitchen bringing a load with you en route. This will save time prevent you from having to add a separate designated time slot for doing laundry.
