Life can get super busy when you’re living out of home. You’ve got enough on your plate keeping up with the cooking, washing, sleeping, uni work and TV marathons! Well, in terms of keeping clean and tidy a little goes a long way. Many hands make light work. A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush! Okay maybe not that last one, but you get what we mean…
So here are our TOP FOUR TIPS for keeping clean and tidy!
#1 WEEKLY CLEANING ROSTER
Little by little beats all at once, so implement a weekly cleaning roster. This breaks up a big job into small achievable jobs and rotates them around so it’s fair. Plus, you’ll be good to go when it comes around to house inspection time!
#2 WARDROBE NOT FLOORDROBE
Take it off, put it away. Clothes are the biggest culprit for a messy room. Have a well-organised storage system for your clothes so that it’s simple and easy to put things away immediately. Plus it’ll be easier to find that cute top in a rush!
#3 STORAGE STORAGE STORAGE
The key to keeping tidy is having a place for everything. That way, it’s easy to do a 5 minute tidy-up every day. Buy a set of draws for your bathroom (like this), a bookshelf for your bedroom (like this), a desktop organiser for your desk (like this).
#4 RINSE & REPEAT
Dirty dishes can break even the best of housemate relationships. If you have a dishwasher (lucky you!) rinse your dishes immediately and stack in the dishwasher. Otherwise at least rinse them immediately for easy cleaning later.
