1 - A little bit of cleaning, but every day.
The trap when you maintain your home is to do everything at once and spend 4 hours on weekends to clean. No need to do everything thoroughly every day. Spend between 5 and 10 minutes in the morning, even in the evening, little more. Do the math, at the end of the week, it's almost 2 hours!
2 - Relativize the duration of the tasks
You work, you are overwhelmed? Yes! Do this experiment: compute shows in hand how long a task lasts; it is sometimes much less than one believes. Indeed, it takes no more than 5 minutes to empty the dishwasher, clean the toilet or change a pair of sheets, 2 or 3 minutes to spend a sponge on the hotplates and worktop...
3 - Involve the whole family
The calculation is simple; the whole family can stick 5 minutes in the morning and 5 minutes in the evening. If you are 4, its 40 minutes a day. Well without even taking out your calculator, you can count on Friday night, it's almost 3:30, it's not anything! To clear the table, peel the potatoes, it's the same: the more we are the more it goes quickly. A task that takes 20 min alone takes only 5 minutes to four!
4 - Start challenges
Your children will love (in principle)! For example instead of the eternal: tidy up your room! Say instead: the first who has picked up 20 items to win. Participate too in this game, you will see, time goes much faster, and it is a formidable efficiency.
5 - Sort the laundry
Yes but after the machine, when the laundry is dry. Sort it not by color but by category: socks and underwear in a basket and t-shirts and pants in another. If you have room, you can even have a basket for things to iron. And as for the rest, involve the whole family, especially the socks: everyone goes in, "challenge" mode to find the pairs and won the right to fold once collected.
6 - One thing at a time
If you decide to tidy up the living room, just do that. Example: you find a sock in the living room, you will put it dirty, there you launch a machine and as long as you are in the bathroom, you spend a sponge in the bath! Stop! Do not disperse, because after 10 minutes your living room will still not be tidy and you will be frustrated. At the beginning, put a time: 5 or 10 minutes, or if you prefer the music, wait until 2 or 3 songs have passed. You will be more efficient. And in the evening, sweep or vacuum, it will be easier, since the room will have been tidied up in the morning.
6 - Instill rituals
Take good reflexes: you put your jacket and shoes in the closet as soon as we arrive, it does not take longer than throwing them in the middle of the living room. Sponge on the sink after every brushing. We put away the remote after watching the TV ... do not wait until the next day to clear the table, empty the dishwasher , it was said above are tasks, which shows in hand do not take more than 5 minutes .
