HOW TO KEEP YOUR HOME CLEAN & TIDY 24/7!

Personally, I take great pride in making sure my home is inviting, especially during the hotter months. Not that I host much, partly due to my anxiety and, also, because, I'm really precious about who I allow into my personal space, however, I was taught from a very young age that it's better to stay on top of household chores to prevent them from mounting up! So, although there's no 'one size fits all', here are a few tips to help you maintain a presentable home that you will always feel proud to open the door to [you may already do these things which is great]!

BULK BUY
Buying in bulk means I buy less often and I save a lot of money too! It's a good idea to ensure you always have the necessary materials for both a basic and thorough clean. You don't ever want to be caught out, especially if you are to have guests over at the last minute and need to give everywhere a bit of a spruce! I tend to purchase a few of each cleaning item, toiletries and household necessities, every 2 - 3 / 4 months and I use them sparingly where possible. More often than not, you only need to use a tiny bit of, say, Fairy Liquid for a sink full of used plates, cups, crockery, etc., which means the product will last much longer. The same applies to shower gel, to give you another example - we don't need to squeeze almost half of the bottle per body part, lol... Less than a handful is more than enough to wash yourself from head to toe nail! 

PERSONAL STANDARDS
Your own cleanliness and hygiene will have an impact on how you feel about yourself and how you socialise. Feeling fresh and smelling good, as well as looking presentable, will naturally uplift your mood, boost your confidence and put a spring in your step. Also, when you feel good within yourself, you'll want to ensure that same vibe is felt throughout your home, which will encourage you to maintain a clean and tidy household.

DAILY EFFORT

Leaving dishes to pile up, a mix of clean and dirty clothes to sort, or put away 'whenever', a messy lounge to be tidied 'some other time', could be left pending for too long, which just creates more mess and chaos! Your home is your sanctuary and so returning every day, especially if you've had a bit of a challenging time at work, etc., to a clutter free, clean space will do wonders for your overall health. 

EVENING COMMITMENT
Get ready for tomorrow before you go to bed! Choose your outfit, decide what you'll need with you for the day and prepare; get everything ready!This will give you peace of mind and support a good night's sleep and, the following day, you're less likely to leave your home looking like a number of bombs have gone off which will only upset you when you return and want nothing more than to relax, not be concerned with having to get your home in order. 

Do a little every day so there is less to do at the end of the week / month. Make a conscious, daily effort and you will see positive, long term results. Plus, you'll definitely feel a thousand times better within yourself and about your home.

Random Fact > Whilst at an ex boyfriend's place [for the first time], I pretended to suddenly feel unwell and asked that we go for a drive after I had walked into his toilet [almost bursting to relieve myself] and was 'greeted' by the most awful stench and [to put it somewhat politely] a level of filth that was beyond shocking! The toilet itself had a discoloured rim and had a stain at the base of the inside! To this day, I cannot believe he said I could use it!! **vom**
