Ways to Keep Your Home Clean and Tidy All Year Round

Do you know the feeling of coming home from a long day to an untidy house? There are plenty of simple ways to make your house a bit more organized and tidy every day. With these tips, you'll never have to worry about your messy house again.

Create a cleaning schedule.

Cleaning is one of the property maintenance activities. A cleaning schedule will help you stay on top of your home’s upkeep and make sure that each area gets the attention it needs. To create a schedule, find an app or calendar that is easy to use, and then plan out when you can clean. This could be weekly, bi-weekly or monthly depending on how much time you have available. It’s important to remember not to overbook yourself with cleaning tasks as well.

Use checklists to remind yourself of errands you need to run.

Checklists are a great way to ensure that you don't forget anything. Checklists can be used for just about anything—from remembering tasks to packing for a vacation to checking off items from your grocery list.

You can make checklists for each day of the week (or month) so that you know what needs to be accomplished and when. You can also create a checklist of tasks in order of priority so that you know what needs to get done first, second and third before moving on to other things on your list.

Keep your home organized by creating more storage.

To keep your home clean and tidy, you need to make sure that everything has a place. This means that you should have enough storage containers to house all of your belongings. You should also use vertical space when possible so that there isn't extra clutter on the floor.

If you are short on closet space, try getting tall cabinets or drawers that can be used for storing items such as clothing and linens. You could also use baskets and bins to organize these items by type if necessary.

Another option is using hooks in the walls or ceiling for hanging clothes, towels and other things that would benefit from being hung up instead of laying flat on a shelf or in drawers/cabinets (e.g., hats).

Another great way to utilize vertical space is by installing pegboards where tools are stored so they don't end up littering tables around the house like they normally do.

Tidy up every day.

Clean up after yourself every day. Don't leave dirty dishes in the sink, don't leave clothes on the floor, and keep your home organized so that it's tidy at all times.

If you want to be a person with a clean home who doesn't dread having people over for dinner parties or get embarrassed when friends come over unexpectedly, then start tidying up daily. This way you'll always have time for cleaning sessions and will never have to worry about forgetting something important (like washing your hair).

Clean your dirty laundry and put it away every day.

One of the easiest ways to keep your home clean and tidy all year round is by making sure that you don't let dirty clothes pile up. A hamper will help you do this, so try to keep one at hand wherever possible. In addition, it's important not to leave dirty laundry on the floor or in washing machines or dryers when they're not in use.

If you have a washing machine and dryer at home, try to make sure that they're always empty before starting them again (unless you want another load). It's also a good idea to put things away after each wash cycle so that there's less clutter in the laundry room when it comes time for the next wash load.

Don't leave dirty dishes in the sink

It's almost impossible to keep a kitchen clean and tidy if you're still leaving dirty dishes in the sink. Dishes are a breeding ground for bacteria, and they can quickly pile up into an unsightly mess. They also take up valuable space that could be used for more important things, like baking or cooking (which means you'll have fewer snacks).

Finally, those dishes are expensive. If you don't want to run out and buy new plates every few months because your old set is too full of dirt and germs, it may be time to start washing them properly.


With the right systems in place, you can keep your home clean and tidy all year round. Just remember to take it one day at a time.
