Keep the House Out of Mess

Updated on February 18, 2018

Keeping House Out of Mess


Tired of daily chores? Irritated by dozens of task left because of workload? Are you still having fun staying at your messy house? Were you able to stay for long hours in your family room? Or you are not staying home anymore because you have found out that there are a lot more reason to stay in your friends? That is an atrocious blunder.

Would you agree?

A house is not a home if the owner itself cannot stand to stay for long time and spent hours for their family. And a home isn't a home anymore if the members of the family doesn't seem to be happy seeing what's inside it. Would you believe? A house is a structure built for a family to live in, a dwelling place. A house can only be called a home once the family who owns a house shared their love and respect with each other.

To all wives, and moms out there, wife-to-be, moms-to-be, take a pause for a little while and give this one a try. The façade of the house is the face of the family,or should I say, it represent what kind of family you do have.The house represent the woman of the house. A glance at your house typically would create an impression which may or maybe not last long somehow. But oftentimes leaves lasting impression to others especially your visitors.

How would you want to be judge by others who doesn't even know you personally? Yeah! Mind their own business and live according to your will. Won't that bother you much? But how would you want your family to see their own yard? Let's say, it's not how you impress everyone, rather its how you want your family to stay together with harmony. A messy house most of the time cause irritation for every member of the family. Living with a messy place can be very stressful and irritating. Mood damaging to a person who wants to have a peaceful time to enjoy. Isn't it annoying not to find things immediately once you needed it?

For those who do have kids at home, it is not as easy as what they might think it is, especially if you have toddlers. Do not get me wrong, were just sorting things out. The big factor is to create a well-balance life. A happy family. A happy home.Our family is our own treasure in life. It would give you a relief once you'll find out that your husband is very happy staying at home playing with the kids. And you'll be happier when kids have their own good reasons to stay at home rather than to be with the accompaniment of their friends outside, which would literally make them vulnerable to 'not so good' activities for their age.

Sometimes because of busy schedule or too much hanging out with friends really affect our behavior at home and could lessen the chance of putting things right in their own places. If you think you need a little more effort to add,then do it. Anyway, it is your family you're doing a favor, why hesitate? Your house is your home. Your home has your family. And a family who dine together, sleep together, pray together definitely stays forever. Who wouldn't want to have it? Nothing is more wonderful than having your family within your reach. We keep the house out of mess because we only want to give our best to our kids and spouse. It's up to you what belief you would want to embrace so long as it would not harm your relationship to your family members, go on. It is by giving that we appreciate the art of living.


GET RID OF MESS

List of Schedule. Get the most out of your schedule and finish every chores you have just been started and avoid nagging to anybody that would make you feel upset for doing it endlessly. Mess is a part of daily living. You just need to have good enthusiasm in order for you to cope everyday without getting tired and avoid boredom in your life.

Do not leave work undone. Once you started any chores finish it in order not to be fully loaded at work. Neglecting it for a while would make you cramming back again.

Ask for your family's help. You aren't superhero anyway, were not even trying to make you one. Ask the help of your family and give them their own chores to live with while you are making the most. Use mother or wife's instinct. At least add on some bonding.

Refrain from Buying Unnecessarily Things. You see women always have their buying tips but do not engaged yourself to panic buying. Buy what is needed and give your home a sufficient fund for repair or maybe throw bonding party just for the family, it doesn't have to be expensive, especially if you have a limited source of fund.

Do not forget the Schedule of Garbage Collectors. Get rid of those Mess. Remove unnecessary things from the bathroom, dirt from the kitchen, trashes from the backyard, etc but do not forget when the garbage should be collected.

Keep Away Things No Longer Needed. Haven't you heard "One man's trash is another man's treasure." Give some to those who is in dire need or donate it. You don't need it but still can't stand losing it? There is someone out there who will be needing it more. "Give and You shall receive." Who knows you will be rewarded with more.

WAYS

Organize Things. Go to your nearest mall and try to look for an organizer that fits your style and taste but never disregard your budget.There are so many items available in the market yet you have to choose wisely. What's the point? Encourage your kids to organize their own stuff. Give them a space where they can make organizing things a habit .

Give it a 20-30 minutes Daily Habit. How many times do you consider cleaning the house? Twice a month? Once a week? Try this one. Give each day a 20-30 minutes to pick items messing in every corner of your house. Give your family a nice ambiance of a cozy place to live in. And you'll discover that there is really no place like home.

Provide little things a holder and canister. Have you tried jars as an organizer for small stuff like pins,buttons,beads or anything used by the kids for their crafts? Crafty ideas help find ways to even maximize some potential. See for yourself and find out how pretty organizers they are.

Always have cleaning materials at Home. Ready to clean the house? Stop being spendthrift. Every house has their requirement on how to maintain cleanliness. Always provide yourself cleaning materials. Its another way of improving your consistency at work. You don't want to get mess with your hands, try to look for a material that will help you make it easier.

FOCUS

Time Management. Yes! Indeed. Everybody knows time management but does anybody consider to live with it? Before it became out-of-topic, consider time management as a necessary tool in keeping your house out of mess. Hang with friends, chat with your followers, bond with your family, and keep the house clean as always for a well-balance lifestyle.

Don't give Mess a chance to Ruin your Day.Start your day right. Always put a smile on your face. Motivate yourself.That is the purpose of being wife and being mom. Give your family the inspiration of a lifetime.

Play with your Kids. Make it often.Working couples sometimes give their kids once a week to dine with them, play with them, bond with them. It is better than nothing! Though parents must accept that giving ample time everyday, at least join them at breakfast, or have dinner with the family everyday would create harmony to their family.

Create a Harmonious Relationship with the Family. Enjoy life with your family. Get messed and get rid of mess at the same time. Maybe too tiring but your endless devotion to your family will give its own way.

Provide your Home its Basic Needs.

      I am no neat freak as I clean the house only twice a week. In between those times, the house can be a mess! Your article reminds me that I need to clean up again. Great article, I gave it a thumbs up!

      Thought you should know, this hub and a conversation with my friend inspires me to get to the real heart of clutter and clear away the old, make room for what you need and to make it easy to see and get to. Remove the sore eyes when opening a cabinet! lol Thanks again as I revisit and revisit!

      For most women (I think), keeping their homes neat and tidy is next to caring and loving the family. I myself keep my home neat for the sake of my family and my children.Though, it really takes a little effort everyday while I admit decluttering is endless.

      Its another reason why one have to say, 'there is no such place like home.' However, it is true that not all clutter is just a clutter, and it is still up to a person to keep his/her territory a pleasant place on his own eyes. To be in control, I think one must..declutter first. It is important to avoid accidents for kids.

      Thank you wilderness for your commenting. A pleasant day to you ,sir.

      Some really great ideas and thoughts here. While I don't require a home to be perfectly neat at all times (a little bit of clutter makes a home what it is) it is necessary to keep it well under control.

      I have seen the messiest homes when I was an estate agent. Some of them belong to the rich and most influential members of the community. Being messy, or even untidy, is an interesting mental disorder and not only a bad habit.

      Excellent tips!

      Indeed! Oftentimes we neglect to give value to what we always thought as 'insignificant' and failed to realize the comfort it will provide us.

      We dilly-dally with our work pretending we're not lacking out of time. Thank you CrisSp for the inspiration.

      Time Management, very important aspect and yet hard to keep.

      I like your "Refrain from Buying Unnecessary Things" -- that is so true. My mantra is to buy only the things I need not those that I want. There's a big difference between the "need" and the "want".

      Good thoughts! Good hub! Welcome to HP!
