Lately, it's been a hard time for us moms trying to handle everything. Never mind the usual responsibilities of having to cook, clean, work, and take care of our kids. Because of Pandemic, some people must work from home and also help their kids with distance learning. Trust me, when I say most of us are in the same shoes. I started consuming way too much coffee to help me get through the interminable days because, by mid-day, I'm looking for a nap. Unfortunately, things were becoming unmanageable at home and needed to get fixed. So I started making some simple changes. Here are some ways to help you in your home.
Create a Cleaning Schedule
Select one day that you can devote a few hours of nothing else but for thorough cleaning of the home. If your children are young, pick a day that you can keep them occupied for a few hours with cartoons or even a movie. Then every day, do one room in the home, but bathrooms, dishes, and beds do daily.
Try to plan out your meals for the week or even monthly. Select the meals you and your family enjoy eating. Then see what ingredients you have and don't. If you are missing something, make a list. Don't be like me plenty of times, I have forgotten to get many things from the store and had to change my meal ideas.
These containers are huge lifesavers when you have small kids. You can have one in any corner of the living room to keep your child's toys, dolls, blocks. It helps keep your living room, and their things organized.
Keeping Control of Papers
It is easy to hoard papers. To prevent you from that is by using a small container to hold it all. Then, once a week, go through it and throw out what you don't need.
Tidy Up Every Evening
Right before you go to bed each night, do a quick walk-through of your home, and clean up anything is out of place.
