How to Reclaim Your House and Get it Back in Order
Summer is a fantastic time of celebration, relaxation, and enjoying family and friends. With all of that going on, who has time to clean the house? No one! Now that kids are heading back to school, it is time to get the house back in order. Here are some quick and easy tips to reclaim your house.
Create a To-Do List for the Entire Family
Everyone lives in the house and everyone contributed to the disaster it might be today. For that reason alone, everyone should share in the responsibility of getting things back in order. Create a list of things that need to be completed to return your house to a relatively organized mess. Make sure to include all family members, as this is a team event! Even if you have young ones in the house, make sure they have age-appropriate tasks as well. Display the Family To-Do List in a location that everyone sees often. Another idea is to use a whiteboard so that everyone enjoys crossing out the items that they complete.
Another great task for the entire family is purging. Have each family member go through their things and purge what isn’t in use. One good rule is if it hasn’t been used/worn/played within the past twelve months, it is time to let it go. Put everything in bags or boxes and donate it all to families in need. This is both satisfying and rewarding!
Create the Family Calendar
You’ve got the Family To-Do List ready to go, so now it is time to get the Family Calendar up and running for the school year. This calendar can be a traditional print calendar hung in a highly visible location, or it could be a digital calendar that all family members have access to readily. This is the place where all practices, study sessions, school plays, games, and dances are noted so that each family member is kept in the loop at all times. This is a necessity for busy families!
Deep Clean the House
Sometimes the best feeling in the world is to sit back and survey a freshly cleaned home. Now is the perfect time to get rid of all of the dirt and grime that accumulated over the summer months. No deep clean is complete without a thorough scrubbing of hard floors. Everyone knows this means hours of crawling around on your hands and knees right? Not anymore! With the Wonder Mop by the Libman Company, you can get the job done without all the body aches and pains. Libman products are quality products.
