This doesn’t have to be a Saturday morning chore where you cram in 3 hours of work to do everything on the list. You can designate different days for different chores. For example, you can dust every Monday but mop every Thursday. Each week, however, these chores do help keep your home more organized:
- Deep clean the bathrooms
- Pick one small area to declutter or organize that has been neglected
Do these things monthly for better home organization
- Wash the baseboards, walls, and doors
- Wipe out the fridge and freezer (throw away expired foods)

But a cleaning routines helps organize your home without the stress and pressure of it becoming a monstrous task.
