Like me, as a busy moms, your days are often filled with running errands, ferrying kids around town, and attending activities. Somehow, in the midst of it all, we also have to find time to keep our homes clean. But don’t despair—here are five tips that will help you tackle tough cleaning projects quickly and easily.
Make a List - When trying to figure out where to start with a big cleaning project, it can be helpful to make a list. Writing down the tasks that need to be done helps you prioritize and see what needs your immediate attention. In addition, when you cross off items as they are completed, you will get satisfaction from seeing your progress.
Break Up Tasks – When faced with an overwhelming task like decluttering an entire room or deep cleaning the kitchen, it can be helpful to break the project up into smaller tasks that can be accomplished more quickly. This way you won’t feel overwhelmed by the task at hand but instead will feel accomplished when each mini-task is completed.
Utilize Technology – Technology can be a great asset when tackling tough cleaning projects. There are many apps available to help organize tasks and remind you when things need to be done. Additionally, there are various online resources (like my TikTok's) available that offer advice on how best to tackle various types of cleaning projects such as deep cleaning carpets or deodorizing old furniture. Taking advantage of these resources can save valuable time while still getting the job done right.
Set Timers – When faced with a tough cleaning task it can be helpful to set a timer so that you stay focused and motivated on completing your task in a timely manner. Setting time limits helps ensure that cleaning doesn’t become an all day endeavor but instead is contained within reasonable parameters which leaves more time for other activities and tasks throughout the day.
Reward Yourself - Finally, once your project is complete don't forget to reward yourself! A little treat or reward goes a long way in motivating us (especially busy moms) during times of stress and exhaustion! So go ahead—enjoy that cupcake or take some time for yourself after completing your hard work!
Cleaning projects don't have to take forever or cause confusion and chaos--with these five tips you can tackle any tough cleaning project quickly and easily! Making lists, breaking up tasks into smaller ones, utilizing technology resources available online, setting timers while working on projects, and rewarding yourself afterwards all go a long way in making sure any cleaner job gets done efficiently while still having some fun along the way! So let's get started--happy organizing!
