5 things I do everyday to keep my home clean and organized + free daily / weekly cleaning checklist

Being a blogger and a solopreneur, might sometimes makes things difficult for me. I get caught up with crochet orders, updating my blog, planning new things or ideas, cleaning my home, cooking and a lot more. I guess you all might relate to this exact scenario. Handling a blog, your business and a home sounds difficult. But believe me, for those still finding this a tedious task, we are definitely meant for more and can handle multiple tasks in a clear and organized fashion. We've got this girls. We are born with this talent of multi-tasking and it only needs to be implemented and perfected.

One way I keep my home clean is by taking a set of tasks and doing it everyday, so that I don't find myself in a clutter by the end of the week and doubling my time for cleaning and household activities. Doing this saves me so much time and effort and I can concentrate on my blogging and business as well.

5 things I do everyday to keep my home clean and organized + free daily / weekly cleaning checklist


So lets see what 5 things I do everyday to keep my Home clean (and maybe next week, I will post on the things I do everyday to organize and plan my business and blogging activities, the entrepreneur side of me).

1. De-clutter 

I begin by folding my sheets, putting away old clothes, de-cluttering every space (home office, rooms and possibly organizing the things where they are intended to be). This way making the place look neat already. 


2. Dust / Clean

Once, the place looks a little tidy, I start by dusting the corners, windows/grills, if dirty then the ceilings, desk, other furnitures, etc.


3. Sweep/Vacuum

Once all the dust is on the floor, I sweep simultaneously re-checking the space once again for dust. You can even vacuum you space and sofa. 


I can never ever think or work in a cluttered space. Only after these tasks, I feel relaxed, fresh and begin my work. 


4. Clean Kitchen counters and stove

Once cooking is done, at the end of the day, I clean the stove using wet cloth or soapy microfiber (to prevent oil or any residue to stick , which later makes it difficult to clean), followed by cleaning the entire kitchen counter (or just the space that you have used). This part definitely brings a smile on my face to see the granite counter sparkle and clean. :)


5. Wash dishes

Once I am done with counters, I finally wash the utensils. I never keep my dishes for the next day. It feels like a burden when I see the dishes undone the next morning. Unless I am sick, I try to complete this task the same night. :) 


This might sound like a lot for few, but by doing this everyday, helps reduce a lot more time spending on cleaning, especially if you work. And you don't have to worry if some guests suddenly drops by. :) Put on your cleaning hats and get going :)

  2. This is just what I need! I let the house get out of hand sometimes because work/blog take up all of my time. I need to get into the habit of just doing a little every day instead of leaving it and having to do a huge clean up for a full day. Great post!

    1. Yes Becki. 😊. Piling up the entire job makes it so difficult, whereas, dividing them into small portions and completing them each day, simplifies it. 💖

      Glad you liked it. Thank you.

  4. Thanks for you outline - I need to get better at "a little bit each day" -- I'm the person who lets the mess wait until Sunday and then I spend all day cleaning :(

    1. You're most welcome Clarissa. I know, I used to be the same before, but while my blog and business started growing, I found it real difficult to manage everything at once. I found this so much easier and a time and life saver 😊
