The Clean Routine Ultimate Guide Part 3
“Don’t quit, and don’t give up. The reward is just around the corner.” –Joanna Gaines
Piled up jackets and coats, tracked in mud, and other items possibly from your children or the store can clutter up the entrances to our homes. Many people use entrances as a catch-all. The way to combat this is to place a system in your entryway of where you want your items to go, or to get in the routine of putting your items away. The week is usually very busy for most people, however, you can catch up on decluttering your entrances on the weekends. You can also ask your house cleaning company to help you de-clutter the area, especially when it comes to cleaning the floors if there is a dirty appearance. Head to the store or go online to order shelves and boxes to organize your items in a system that makes sense to you.
Kitchens & Office Spaces
Your kitchens and office spaces can be a place that collects clutter, especially if you bring home mail and it gets piled up along with other papers. Some people use their dining rooms as office spaces, and that can clutter the area where you would generally eat meals with your family. Using your kitchen or dining area as an office space is okay, so long as you are able to continue to use the spaces as they were originally intended. As noted above, pick up items from the store or online that can help you organize papers and items for the spaces.

Living Rooms & Bedrooms
The living room and bedrooms of your house should be seen as a place to relax and unwind after a long day. Many people pile up clutter in these areas, especially if they have children who collect a lot of toys. In part one, your linens are in a routine of weekly washing by your cleaning company, so most of your linen items should be generally organized and won’t be laying around.
If any extra linens or blankets are laying around, be sure to fold them up or store them away. If you are dealing with lots of children’s toys, purchase a larger crate or box that you can place the toys in. Encourage your children to put their toys away after they play with them. Your living room and bedroom is an area where you should be able to relax, so make sure the rooms are picked up so you can relax.
When your home is on a weekly cleaning rotation, provided by your cleaning team, and you’re picking up your items to make it easier to keep your home organized and clean, you are sure to feel at ease when you come home to your sanctuary.
