5 household chores to never skip

another post on cleaning the house....
because keeping our homes clean is so important + something we have to keep up on  e v e r y d a y.
if you skip cleaning something one day, it just get pilled back up for the next day...filling up hours of your time instead of maybe just one hour, right?
but sometimes you just don't have time. so you need to get choosy. keep your house functioning by choosing the most important chores.

here my top 5 chores to never skip on, even when you are too busy.

1. dishes. this is my number one and probably the most hard for me. something I always tell myself after I've finished putting the dishes in the dishwasher and it took me an hour-- "next time I eat off of a plate I will put it straight into the dishwasher so this doesn't happen again." 
yet...a few days later, here are are again. 
uuuuggggghhhh. dishes are horrible and somehow grow exponentially. try to make it a habit and put them in the dishwasher as soon as you are finished (as I am trying to too)

2. make yo bed. when my bed is made I feel like the day can start off right. how annoying is it to walk into my bedroom with pillows all over the ground and the comforter half-way on the ground(very annoying). something just feels good and keeps me sane with a made bed.

3. keep counter tops clean. I get anxiety when I come home and there is trash, groceries, random paper, spills, etc. all over the kitchen counter. take a few minutes each day to clear off that space and give it a quick wipe down so you don't lay an important paper in a sticky ice cream spill on the counter. 

4. put dirty clothes in basket. almost nothing can make a room look more dirty than clothes, shoes + towels laying all over the ground. when something is dirty, throw it in a hamper and if it is clean, take a second and put it away! (something I remind my husband of almost daily;))

5. common area flooring. whether the common area in your home is carpet, hardwood, tile, etc. a nice sweep or vacuum can really help clean up your space fairly quickly. especially with young children + babies who are on the ground constantly-- keep them from eating small, random pieces of food that have been on the floor for a week.
