Homemaking should not be a hassle. I should know since this is how I make a living and an important purpose for me is to help people organize their homes so they can always find their things without having to fight clutter every single moment. While I talked to you in my latest post about what a great thing is to have a reliable electric broom to keep a house clean and tidy, especially when you have pets, right now I want to tell you about a few tips you can use to make your home a more livable environment.
First of all, I recommend you to avoid stuffing things all together in a drawer or a bin. A simple and quick way of finding the exact item you are looking for, whether it is a cooking utensil, a clean pair of socks or thread and needle, is to keep things organized through cleverly dividing the space you have at your disposal. You can purchase organizers made of wood or plastic from stores, or you can make your own from cardboard; another idea I use is to repurpose older boxes of different shapes and sizes, until I fit them together, ready to be used as organizers. This way, I can guarantee that you will no longer have to spend minutes if not more, looking for a single item that should be somewhere, but looks like it’s not.
The second homemaking tip I want to talk to you about is related to pet care. We all know that pets cannot have the same consideration for a clean environment as humans. Taking a few steps to keep things in order is much needed, especially if you have cats. While dogs require walks in the park, or some space outdoors to see about their hygienic needs, cats require a litter box. It is unavoidable for some of the litter to get spread all over the floor, after each time the cat uses it. What you can do to minimize mess is to place the litter box on top of a larger tray. This way, all you will have to do is to take the tray and empty it, when there is too much litter spread around.
Finally, the third tip on homemaking I would like to give you is maximizing the space you have at your disposal. Take a look at your home and see what areas could be better used. Check all the nooks and crannies and envision giving them another purpose than just gathering dust. You can easily improvise bookshelves along a hallway, and you can use all the pegs behind doors for hanging coats and clothes that need to be accessed quickly. You will quickly find your home more spacious and a more ergonomic environment for you and your family.
