Keeping your apartment neat and tidy on a regular basis may seem like a goal that can never be reached. Itís easy for clutter to accumulate in our apartments when weíre so busy during the week with various activities. Unfortunately, clutter makes us feel overwhelmed and out of control, but there are easy ways to keep it at bay without too much work.
Use these three tips below on a regular basis at your apartment in Alachua, Florida, and before long, clutter will be a thing of the past.
Make your bed. Making your bed will instantly help your bedroom look neater and itís something that takes just a few minutes to do after you wake up.
Invest in a basket to hold all clutter. Put the basket near the door of your home so you can quickly deposit of mail that needs to be sorted, shoes, and other items that you may just throw on a coffee table or kitchen counter to be dealt with later. This way, your clutter is in one contained place and not strewn about your apartment. Once the basket gets full, you can go through it and deposit all the items where they belong.
Set a cleaning timer. At the end of the night, set a timer for ten minutes and get to work. You can fold laundry, load the dishwasher, wipe down the bathroom countertops, vacuum your floors, or whatever needs to be done. Using a timer makes cleaning seem like a game because you want to get the most done in that time frame. This way, you can go to bed knowing your home is a bit neater and cleaner, and the clutter has been dealt with.
Keeping your apartment tidy on a daily basis doesnít have to be a chore, and it doesnít have to be impossible. You can even make it fun! With these tips, youíll be able to keep clutter away and your apartment looking spotless every day.
