Stay at Home Order and Cleaning
With the current situation that we are all facing, many of us are stuck in the house. For many, being in the house for too long makes them very anxious. This is the time to get things done in your home that you normally would not have time to do. Also, since the kids are home, they can help so you are not stuck doing it alone!
Organize one small space
When cleaning the house sounds too boring or overwhelming, pick one spot that could use some TLC and go to work. Focus on your junk drawer, workbag, or desk. It won’t take long, but you’ll feel so much less scattered—and might find yourself wanting to keep the momentum going with another organizing project. Here are other things organized people do on the weekend.
Rearrange the furniture
Rethinking your room’s setup can give your home a fresh look without spending a dime. If large pieces of furniture are too much of a hassle, mix up your knick-knacks or organize your shelves. You’ll bust boredom for the day, and break out of a rut from your same old arrangement. Start with these interior designer tricks for styling bookshelves.
Clean Household Filters
Check any appliance with an air or water filter to see if it needs to be washed or replaced. If you have a combined forced air heating and cooling system, follow the filter manufacturer’s recommendation on how often to change it. In general, the thicker the disposable filter, the less often it needs to be changed. (The air filters we test at Consumer Reports last three to 12 months.)
De-Grime Countertop Appliances
With their curves, knobs, and moving parts, small appliances can get pretty gritty sitting on the counter. Your coffee maker is one that gets the dirtiest, and you might not clean it enough.
Now that you’re home, you probably can’t help but notice that the windows are pretty grimy. It’s easy to remove the haze, and it’s a fun activity to do with little ones for the windows they can easily reach.
Organize Your Garage
Has it been ages since you could actually fit your car into your garage? Clearing out the space is a perfect project. Get started by dividing your belongings into four groups: sell, donate, trash, and keep. That will give you a better idea of how much storage you need, and what kind. Overall, your objective is to get as much as you can off the garage floor and onto the walls or shelves.
