Having a list helps you keep chores from falling through the cracks.  Keep your home organized cause it’s really fun.

Keep It Fun

Do not let chores be a hassle. It you can find a way to keep it fun, it will be easier to stay motivated. Staying motivated is the key to keeping the house consistently clean. If you like listening to music, play it from the television, your phone, or your laptop. If you like dancing to music, even better. Not only will this make chores more fun, but it will help you burn some extra calories in the process. Dancing is a great workout. If music is not your thing, you can try to make a game of it. Try timing yourself and compete against your own personal cleaning records, or talk with a friend over the phone while working on something.

Start Small
