So what are the actions, then, that can help you in your efforts to make your home tidier?
Stay with us.
1. Order and cleanliness.
We will start with the most intuitive point for the subject of our articles - order and cleanliness.
The first thing that pops into everyone's head when the issue of a well-organized house comes up is the way the house looks in terms of its order and cleanliness.
The organized person makes sure that his house is tidy and clean, just like a pharmacy.
Everything is tested in its designated place. Everything is sorted by category and storage sub-areas.
Look, storage solutions are a critical component in all of the above and can even be said to be the most important means of assisting in the proper arrangement of any home. Unfortunately, the challenge with them is that the world of storage solutions is enormous, and you can get lost very easily.
Therefore, if the subject of our articles is essential to you, make sure to obtain reasonable storage solutions, especially - those that are well suited to the specific needs of your home.
By the way, if you fancy showing a little more "sophisticated" than others, you can create a unique theme of your specific order.
Store them well!
Next in line is Mr. Cleanliness.
Here, too, it goes without saying that cleanliness is an essential component in any package deal called a "tidy house." After all, it is impossible to imagine a stinking house (even if all its accessories are well stored) and still call it tidy.
If you are a regular member of our sweet community, you probably know that we will not leave you hanging in the air. If we have already talked about cleanliness as an essential component in the context of the article, then we will also make sure to refer you to great tips to help you deliver this efficiently. Just click here and get wise on this topic.
Nice and clean
The well-organized person in his home will not give you even one chance to catch him unprepared in this matter. His house will always look clean at the highest level possible.
2. Keep your eyes open.
One of the most applied tools of a well-organized person in his home is his ability to pay close attention and understand everything in his house in aspects that require regular maintenance and repairs.
Maintaining a "well-tidy" home is not just a matter of proper cleaning and storage. You must know in advance which device/furniture and so on will be out of use soon, no matter what you do about it, and what requires immediate maintenance to prevent it.
Our recommendation is that from time to time, make a list of the "older" things in your home and conduct a situation assessment as to what is going to be out of use soon and what is still functioning well, and there is no real concern about it.
As mentioned above, the well-organized person in his home knows how to make sure everything ticks well, like a Swiss watch. And that he does not suddenly encounter a situation in which, suddenly and without prior notice, he is "stuck" with a product that is not functioning. As a result, the quality of his home and the quality of his life will be harmed.
Be aware of the state of your home
You will be amazed to hear how much the same periodic inspections can help you in the context of maintaining the quality of your home and its contents.
Your number one enemy in this regard is the procrastination instinct.
Most of us are not surprised when our air conditioner breaks down "suddenly."
The same electrical product "hinted" to you quite clearly even before his sudden death.
The difference between the responding person and the initiating person is in the absence of the infamous procrastination instinct.
It's all about the choices you make - make the right choice and respond well in advance.
As an aid to your efforts to assess the condition of those accessories, we encourage you to read this.
3. Good habits.
As with any well-oiled machine, good habits are the key to success.
Make sure you create good habits for your home that will help you in your efforts to create a more organized home environment.
Want some examples?
The only reason not to follow your specific times for cleaning (And yes, do not pretend to be surprised. You should have cleaning times) is if the world has undergone a nuclear bomb.
Special rules regarding certain behaviors. Such as: Under no circumstances should dirty dishes be left in the sink during the night. Dishwashing will be done at the end of each day (if not done during it).
Especially for families with small children - make them understand that your kitchen is not a restaurant that works according to personal orders. There are very clear times for meals, and if for some reason they choose not to eat at these times - this is their problem, and you do not intend to prepare meals at their request.
It is also super relevant regarding sleep time and getting up.
Specific and personal tasks for each member of the family.
Limit the accumulation of dirty laundry before washing and drying it. For example, define for household members that dirty laundry can accumulate, at most, in one tub. More than that - take care of it.
Another principle is the ability to know how to prioritize things.
Look, there will always be a lot of chores in your home that needs to be done. The difference between the smart and well-organized person in his home and others is that he can prioritize things wisely. Understand what requires your immediate attention and what can wait for another date. The rationale behind this is the understanding that there is a natural limitation in performing all of your tasks. And if you are not focused enough, you will get lost, and nothing will perform well in the end. Understand your exact abilities.
A specific time for house bills.
Electricity, water, communications, food, taxes, and more. Much more.
Here, too, the well-organized person in his home does not get to the point where he is surprised by certain charges. He has a particular time when he checks what he must pay and responds to it. By the way, this is not a tip that depends on the nature of your financial situation. The mere knowledge of the status quo - even if it is currently financially challenging to pay for something - will be good for you.
Good rules and habits are key
You really should take care of healthy home habits. There are plenty of other examples, and we are sure that if you devote further thought to it, you will find many more of them, but the guiding principle is quite clear - stable, and "good" habits are critically significant in advancing the subject of this article.

4. Dialogue and cooperation.
An ancient Chinese scholar once said, "If you do not talk about it, it will not work."
Okay, okay. You're probably right. No Chinese scholar has ever said such a thing, and truth be told, we made that up right now. But the principle is entirely true - if you do not communicate with the rest of the family/partners who live with you and make them understand the importance of the matter - you will in no way succeed in this alone.
Communicate with each other
You can arrange things at home all day long, but if your spouse does not mind throwing in the towel here and leaving dirty dishes in the sink - you have a problem.
And by the way, do not get us wrong. We do not recommend that you "educate" other people. This is not our intention. We recommend that you try to make sure that the same "organized" mindset is, as far as possible, in the awareness of the rest of your household.
In the absence of the same mindset, you will have a very hard time making "healthy" habits for your home.
