If you are intimidated by the thought of another general cleaning, then this article is meant for you.
What is the point?
Admit that the cleaning effect doesn’t last long. Sooner or later, you have to re-arrange things in their places or throw out something. There is a solution.
Get rid of one unnecessary thing in the house every day.
It can be a little thing, something broken. In other words, something that only clutters up the apartment and is not at all pleasing to the eye. This cleaning will only take a couple of minutes a day. But this will keep the apartment in order in the long term.
How to use this method
1. Determine the timing
Try this method for a month to test its effectiveness. And in order not to forget, hang yourself a reminder sticker.
Just don’t set yourself the goal of cleaning the entire apartment during this period. First, just look at the results of your work.
2. Focus on one place or room
Do you have a closet packed to the brim that you were afraid to approach? Start with it. After all, cleaning up one thing a day will not be difficult for you. When the cabinet is tidied up, move on to other areas.
3. Don’t skimp on charity
If you have unnecessary items that are in good condition, put them in a separate bag. Perhaps they will be useful to someone else. This will not only cleanse your home, but you will also benefit those in need.
4. Notice trends
With this method, you will understand which purchases to avoid in the future. Have you noticed that you are getting rid of many clothes of the same style or the same type of kitchen stuff? This means that you are unlikely to want to purchase them again.
5. Don’t limit yourself
If you get a taste and can easily get rid of more things, do it. After all, this way you will become even closer to the final goal.
