Are you looking for some easy ways to keep your apartment neater on a daily basis? For some of us, combating clutter is a constant battle, but it doesn’t have to be. There are simple habits you can build into your daily routine that don’t require a ton of extra time or effort.
Here are four easy ways to keep your apartment in Alachua, Florida, tidy:
• Ten-minute power cleans – Every night, set the timer for 10 minutes and clean up. Tidy up the living area and bedrooms, wipe down the counters and sinks, put away dishes from the dishwasher, etc. You’ll be amazed at how much cleaning you can do in 10 minutes.
• Follow the one-minute rule – For any task that will take a minute or less to complete, do it immediately rather than waiting. For example, putting a dirty towel in the hamper, washing a dish you just used, or re-shelving a book you took off your bookshelf.
• Make your bed each morning – Your bedroom will look a lot cleaner with very little effort on your part.
• Keep a small basket on hand – Tuck the basket in an out-of-the-way corner and add items that you need to organize into it, like bills and magazines. Go through the basket a few times a week (perhaps during one of your 10-minute power cleanings?) and put away everything that’s in it.
