1. Always put everything back in its place

When you're in a hurry, you tend to leave items lying around. But very quickly, objects accumulate and you can't find anything that you are looking for. What's more, is that your home starts looking messy! This takes up more time and doesn't look very appealing

This is why it's so important to put items back in their original place right away. This isn't very overwhelming and will keep your home neat and tidy.

It's also a good idea to invest in plenty of storage units throughout your home, where items can be stored neatly.

2. A little bit now and then

Take advantage of the free time that you have. By tidying up as you go, you won't get too overwhelmed and the mess won't gather. This means that you won't have to dedicate too much time to cleaning later on in the week. 

A little bit goes a long way!

3. A refreshing bathroom

A simple trick is to have a permanently clean bathroom. Hide a sponge and cleaning liquid in a drawer or cabinet in the bathroom. When you have some time, wipe around the sink with the sponge and clean the taps. It takes less than two minutes and will keep your bathroom looking sparkling clean.

4. Fresh air

It's very important that you ventilate the entire apartment, but this is especially true in the bedroom. Open the windows every morning and allow the fresh air to flow in. Even when it's cold, you need fresh air circulating.

5. A wipe down after every meal

This seems obvious if you want to have a beautiful interior, but it is best to clean and clear the table after each meal. 

Load all of the dishes neatly into the sink or dishwasher, throw out the garbage and wipe down the table. Your kitchen will remain clean and tidy!

6. Invest in a laundry basket

Every modern bathroom needs a laundry basket, where dirty washing can be stored neatly out of sight until laundry day. It can also add a stylish touch to your bathroom.

7. Undeniably organized

The important thing is to plan for an organized home in the long term. Plan the little tasks you'll do every day, once or twice a week and once or twice a month. Once you have a clear strategy for cleaning, you'll be able to do it with your eyes closed.
