We’re not going to lie – no one really wants to do daily maintenance in any area of their home – just like no one really wants to do the washing or dishes after dinner.
But in order to stay organised and free of clutter, daily maintenance for your family room cannot be avoided.
It will save you time
Now, before you start to question this one think about how long it currently takes you to clean your family room. Is it half an hour per week, or closer to an hour? What would you say if we told you that you could cut that time in half?
Simple daily tasks such a removing any plates and cups from the family room, putting magazines and newspapers into the recycling bin and asking your kids to remove their toys can save a huge chunk of time during your weekly clean.
Small habits that help (you and your family – don’t forget to teach your kids) include putting dishes in the kitchen as soon as you have finished with them, cleaning up any mess or spills as soon as they happen and returning games and toys to their proper place as soon as your family are done.
The time you can save by combining these small habits is massive! You won’t regret it.
You will feel more relaxed
When you sit down at the end of a long day at work or looking after your kids, the last thing you want to worry about is clutter and disorganisation.
More so, knowing that you have a large job ahead of you the following morning can keep your mind ticking long after it should have switched off for the evening.
It’s important to allow yourself time to relax – and daily maintenance for your family room may be the trick you need to have a successful time out. It certainly sounds like a wonderful solution to us.
Your family will learn to appreciate a sorted home
We’re sure you understand how great a sorted home can be. But do your family? After a few weeks of implementing the habits above, your family will learn to appreciate the peace of mind and good feelings that come from relaxing in a clean, clutter free environment.
After all, who wants to go back to mess when they’re experienced true organisation?
