Decide how you would like your home to be.
Follow through each daily chore till completion, think about each room and what you do in there. E.g. kitchen……cook a meal, wash up, put pots away. Washing….fold and put away or store for ironing.
Create new daily routines, they won’t take that much longer, it just seems like it does because it’s new.
Stick to them!!!!!!
Decide that you home is important to you, as important as whatever else you are doing in your life.
The new habits become normal and you have a tidy house.
