From the title of the post you must be thinking that my home must be bastion of the cleanliness and orderliness. But honestly I was constantly at war against all chaos. This is because it was more of war with my own mind. As I read books and try all various plans for cleanliness. I study my organized friends relatives, neighbors and family and think incessantly. But none of those ideas helped me much because what is needed is conviction in head to throw half of my not useful stuff and establish cleanliness routines and set up some system at home.
Now that I mentioned it that it is war with mind over so many ideas and yet still you have problem of keeping your home clean, after reading last line many of you thought “Yeah this is what I need too” and some must be thinking “what kind of help is she offering?”. I say hang in there…
Well first and foremost to people who believed I can help is people you don’t need help or any kind of tricks and tips. Because if you believe suggestion I gave, it means you are already a person who is doing all possible things in her or his hand to keep your home neat, tidy, clean and in organized manner. Maybe it is not you but you are living with some person or people who don’t seem to understand cleanliness and organized home. You must be a person who must be picking up pillows thrown on floor, straightening out your rug, picking up the glass of water before it spills and spoils etc.
Well in that case its time either you use some help or be stern and ask people to pick up their own litter and keep the place clean and tidy.
In any home there are people who are naturally organized and some not naturally organized. For people who are not naturally organized it is the mindset of doing things “later” which affects the organized home. This means you are struggling to keep your home organized. The pervasive though of “later” must be avoided. That is why I said it is battle of mind and for which there is no tips or tricks.
Persistence is the answer to the problem of later. Be persistent. In case you are not able to manage thing now then do it at next possible time and be persistent to do it.
And people who like to keep clean and organized all time. Then you must back your desire with will of “how about now”. The mess and frustration will like magic disappear and you will have clean and organized home.
