Good morning and happy Monday, 810ers! Boy, are we ready to get back into our normal, weekly routine! It is time to take a breath, take a deep sip of flavored coffee, and stay with us as we slowly swing back into our day-to-day life.
Our team just came back from New York (and this writer from Vegas) and there is so much to do! Laundry to be washed, lunches and dinners to be made, and gym trips we insist we must take because we just realized that Tortuga is around the corner!
Nonetheless, a clean house is a happy house.
It is important that you take the time to tidy up where you live. It is good for the soul, even though it is one of the worst parts of being an adult. Vacuuming and taxes. This is adulthood.
Now, we are not suggesting that you deep scrub your kitchen floors every night. However, ten minutes a day makes a world of difference for maintaining a chaotic clean.
A chore a day keeps the Hoarders production crew away
It only takes a couple days to go from tastefully cluttered to horrifyingly claustrophobic.
Taking ten minutes a day to put away your clothes, purse, Tupperware, dreams — all of this goes a long way toward keeping your sanity.
This also ensures that you don’t spend all day Sunday frantically trying to make your house look like a reasonable place for a human being to live.
Have a day for a thing
Saturdays are for straightening up the bathrooms. Sundays are laundry days.
Assigning a specific chore to a specific day is another great way to stay on top of your chaotic clean house game.
Hey! You’re human
Part of living that chaotic clean life is to be reasonable. Of course, every once in awhile it’s a good idea to give your residence a good scrub down. But, in the meantime, be kind to yourself.
It is not healthy to work your ass off all day, cook a healthy dinner, and then come home and kill yourself cleaning your windows when you could be drinking white wine in the bathtub. Never pass up an opportunity to drink white wine in the tub. This is solid life advice.
So hey! Do the best you can, settle nicely into this week, and straighten up as you go so this week can be spent relaxing and not dusting.
