Am I the only one who’s ever looked at a messy kitchen or a disorganized closet and thought, “I don’t have time to clean that,” then walked away?
I’ve had to train myself to stop doing that!
The #1 thing that has changed my housekeeping ways for the better is this: Just do something!
I may not have time to scrub down the entire kitchen, but I can load or unload the dishwasher. Or I could gather any dirty dishes from the rest of the house and place them in the sink.
If I don’t have time to organize an entire closet, I could go through shoes, or coats, or purses, or dresses…
The same goes for a really messy bedroom or living room – even if I can’t put everything away, I can pick up the largest items and put those away. Then I can shove the rest into a corner if need-be so the room will look better than it did before I started.
See what I mean? There’s no reason for a room to look like a complete disaster just because we don’t have time to do everything!
