Turns out the hardest part of making a blog post is writing the introduction. I should have figured. In school I’d always write the body then the conclusion, then finally I’d write the introduction. Same with blog posts I guess so here is your bad introduction.

Here are some tips I use to keep my home tidy and clean.

3 Lazy Tips for a Clean Home
1) if it takes less than a minute or two, do it right away
2) never leave a room empty handed, never go up or down the stairs without returning something
3) make your bed

3 Slightly Less Lazy  Tips
1) Make a to-do list
2) Do one 10minute declutter/cleaning session per day

2) Have a designated place for everything in your home, and return things to their spots when done with them

3 Hard Tips for a clean home:

  1. Haha, that introduction sounds like the Ashley I know. These are all good tips! I discovered the stair one in the last few months, and made regular weekly to-do lists last year. It really helped me stay focused, especially when I tried checking off one major thing a day.

    I notice making the bed is a recurring theme in these posts :p

    • Making the bed is AMAZING!! It was the first chore I really started doing on my own (without my mother nagging me) and it’s amazing how much it has helped my life and sanity over the years.
