My easy housework routine, cleaning tips and routines for real life


If you want to live in a clean and organised house then… you’re really going to have to clean and organise it. Getting into a housework routine may sound a bit boring but once you’re into it everything seems easier. You keep on top of the clutter and chaos and it saves time in the long run.

Being a working mum and having young kids I need things to be clean, tidy and organised, I need to know where things are, have things ready on time and be generally organised so our lives don’t end up chaotic.

When I’m really short on time I will just set a timer for a certain amount of minutes and just get stuck in, delegate jobs to the kids and get as much done as possible, just to keep on top of life!

I divide housework into daily, weekly and monthly jobs – add to that a good spring clean and end of summer clean and it pretty much keeps things ticking over.

I may not do the daily chores every single day, but I do try to fit them in most days, then if I miss a day it doesn’t matter. I don’t get bogged down with chores, I just use it as a guide. If things don’t need cleaning then skip it until the next time.
