New year, new home–you might be disappointed with how your home looks as it became messy and disorganized throughout the year, but there’s no reason you can’t fix that as the calendar turns over. Chores has a list of New Year’s Resolutions for Jersey Shore homeowners to check off as they prepare for 2022!
Of course, organizing everything can be tough, but we’ve written before about how to organize your home. Things pile up throughout the year, especially from holiday parties and the chaos that consumes the end of the year. Use drawers, folders, cabinets, baskets, trays, and other visually appealing methods of organization to put clutter in its rightful place. Go room-by-room–you don’t have to do it all in a day, but make a schedule for yourself and stick to it, and you’ll have a home you’re proud to call your own for 2022!
Of course, you could make it easier on yourself and let Chores do it for you. We’ve made a career out of professionally cleaning and organizing homes across the Jersey Shore!
Going green is a subject that everyone wants to talk about, but few want to take action on. It’s a daunting task, and many believe it requires sweeping changes to go green–things like installing expensive solar panels and buying electric cars.
However, this isn’t the case, and you can easily reduce your carbon footprint while also shrinking your bills in the process with little to no effort on your end. Make a conscious effort to turn off lights and appliances when you leave a room, install low-flow showerheads in your bathroom, only run your washing machine and dishwasher when they’re full, and hang-dry clothes when you can instead of sticking them in the dryer.
Everything adds up, and you’ll find that once these habits become second nature, you’ll see your expenses start to become much more manageable.
Implement A Cleaning Schedule
Now that your house is organized, you’ll want to make sure it stays that way. A weekly cleaning schedule is the best way to do that, and it’s much less difficult than you imagine. With a few willing participants, your entire house can be thoroughly cleaned in under an hour.
Pick a day of the week that works best for you. On that day, everything gets done–dusting, sweeping, mopping, and spraying and wiping. Focusing on one type of cleaning at a time, dust from high to low, then spray and wipe from high to low, and sweep and mop. Move from room to room with a portable cart that has all the cleaning supplies you need, and divide and conquer with the family. One person can do laundry, one can vacuum, one can dust and change sheets–whatever the tasks are, you’ll find that a clean house is a happy house, and a happy house is better to live in.
Your cleaning schedule doesn’t have to be left up to you entirely. 2022 could be the year that Chores makes your life easier with our home cleaning services!
Tidy Up During TV Breaks
Everyone’s got a favorite television show (or seven) that they’re watching in 2022. What are you doing during the commercial breaks besides sitting on the couch?
Every time the screen cuts to commercial in 2022, get up and do some decluttering in a room of your choosing. You’d be surprised how much you can get done in 5 minutes. By the end of your show, you’ll go to bed in a house that was cleaner than it was an hour ago, and you got to watch TV while doing it!
There’s no end to the list of habits you can form to make 2022 clutter-free. Contact Chores to see what we can do for you and your home!
