Getting Caught Up on Homekeeping

Waking up to couch full of laundry can really put a damper on my mood. I try my best to stay on top of chores but sometimes life interrupts my plans and things get thrown out of whack.

Whenever this is the case I try not to fret and implement a "clean as you go" plan. What I do is I ditch my schedule for a day and focus solely on getting the house back into tolerable order.

This laundry has been sitting here for two days. It's clean and folded but I had not had a chance to put it away. The basket is beginning to overflow since I have continued to add more clean folded clothes to it over the last two days.
I woke up this morning determined not to let another day go by with these clothes sitting on the couch. Not only did I have to clear the couch this morning, I also awoke to an untidy breakfast table. It took me all of 10 minute to get everything back into it's place.

Now that's a welcoming breakfast table.

When things get out of hand, don't fret. Take time to create a workable emergency clean-up plan that will help you to get back on track in less than 24 hours.

  1. I know exactly how you feel. When things get messy it really effects my mood so I just ditch the schedule and focus on straightening and decluttering.
