5 Busy Moms Secrets for Managing a Super Organized Home
Home organization always seems like an endless task. When you have a full-time job, kids to look after as well as a number of tasks to do after work, you never have enough time to maintain the home in a great condition. However, it turns out that there is a way to keep your home super organized without feeling exhausted. After all, everyone of us has 24 hours to do the tasks they are supposed to, so what deters you from being as organized as those people you secretly envy because of their ability to handle all tasks in their list. Here are a few tricks that can help you stay organized and balance between work, kids and home cleaning tasks.
To-do lists actually help. Having a plan what you are supposed to do on the next day will save you a lot of time. So, make a list of the tasks you have to accomplish throughout the day instead of trying to remember them as something will probably slip out.
If you spend a lot of time at the office instead of being at home with your kids, think about optimizing the time for completing your tasks. Prioritize, establish a routine and if a certain project is due today, do not postpone its completion for the next day. Allowing a lot of stuff to pile up will only make matters worse.
Even if you are enthusiastic about balancing between work and home duties, you should definitely need the help of the other family members. If everyone makes efforts towards keeping the house neat, the home cleaning and organization tasks will be less tiresome and time-consuming. You can even turn the cleaning and tidying up into a game and engage your kids. Make a calendar that shows the house cleaning tasks each of the family members is supposed to handle for the week/ month.
The more spacious your house is, the more time for cleaning and maintenance it requires. Of course, spending the entire weekend scrubbing and sanitizing instead of enjoying quality time with your family does not sound like the best idea ever. So the time-consuming cleaning chores might be split up into several more manageable tasks. For example, Tenancy Cleaning London suggests to set aside 20 minutes after work to tidy up the living room and another 15 minutes in the morning to fold the clothes or iron them, etc.
When you go through a super busy week, you are snowed under with work and the deadline of two important projects is approaching, you might find yourself overwhelmed and unable to deal with all tasks, requiring your attention. One of the most useful things you can do to remedy the situation is to keep both your desk and your home organized. Keep the unnecessary clutter to the minimum and put everything back in place when you are done using it. This way, the area will not only look neat, but you will also save time and find the desired item right away.
The best way to get the things done and avoid unnecessary hassle is by establishing a routine and sticking to it. It goes without saying that finding the happy medium between work and home duties can sometimes be really difficult. In this case, following your schedule is essential for the successful completion of all challenges during the day. Sometimes, the small changes make a big difference. Don’t shy away from experimenting and you will eventually adjust your working schedule so that it does not interfere with your personal affairs and vice versa.

Its so hard to find a balance between work and maintaining the home, but there are lots of great tips here that I like such as allocating time during different parts of the day so that you break up the amount of time spent cleaning, tidying and maintaining the house. Something that I am going to try as I usually end up trying to do most things on the weekends after it has accumulated which is not ideal! Great guest post, thanks for sharing it on #MarvMondays.
