I confess that I’m a housewife, but I need to keep the House in order. 2 cats are a baguncinha, you know? I adapted some methods for cleaning and organization of the House without his moods.
I use methods of time management and productivity: how the Pomodoro, the GTD and the Fly Lady that is focused on cleaning and organizing the House. I love creating mental challenges and hacks for me to do things, then the Pomodoro challenges me to perform tasks from home in 25 minutes.
- Separate every day a time to clean up and organize, even when I have just 15 minutes makes all the difference!
Organize tasks with the GTD, list activities and the period that I have to do them: daily, weekly or monthly. To have a script using the Fly Lady but I don’t follow the letter because he focuses on women who stay at home (or spend a good time at home) which is not my case.
- I know my place and routine, know which room needs to be cleaned and how it needs to be done, so write it down in a list of tasks per day.
I try to share the routines between Organization and maintenance cleaning even.
- It is essential to share tasks with all the people of the House;)
Then I do a schedule of tasks and that-in my methodology-occupying 25 minutes out of my day, these tasks are used to keep the House clean and in order, even with little time.
My morning is well run, get out of the House the 5:30 Monday through Friday, so I leave when I have more time-reality check, not to freak out.
Whenever I reserve a time to organize the kitchen or bathrooms I clean countertops, stove, sinks and etc., avoid leaving dishes in the sink and things scattered. So, the small droppings of the day didn’t see a zone.
- Make the bed every day is a habit that makes the room be more harmonious and according to the Buddhists, begins to prepare the mind to start the day:) is worth trying.
Are simple tasks, with practical ways to be held, just discipline. Does anyone have more tips, if you want to share or ask questions just comment:)
