2. Clean up after yourself

Getting ready for another busy day at work, as well as for going to bed, includes certain routines that may involve a bit of clutter. Cooking meals also automatically means that there will be little messes here and there. Make sure to always address those tiny messes by simply wiping countertops, returning tools and products to their proper place, cleaning up any spills, and washing your dishes.

3. Give objects a permanent location

To avoid having random clutter scattered all over your place, determine a permanent location for certain items. Position a shoe organizer for your shoes, use a basket for your bills, keep your beauty products in one place, and so on. This will also help you stay away from forgetting where you put things you might end up needing.

4. Set up a place for your dirty clothes

Clothes strewn all over the floor or hanging on furniture can be a real eyesore, and may just end up stressing you out even further. When you get home, make it a habit to put your dirty clothes in a hamper, to also avoid it getting mixed up with your clean ones.

5. When your hamper gets full, do laundry

When you accumulate enough dirty clothing, set aside time to do your laundry. How often you do this will depend on how often you change clothes, or on whether you have a roommate.

6. Sanitize your remote control 

In the living room, one of the objects that often gets extremely dirty is the remote control, since multiple hands touch it every day. Simply wipe these with a sanitizer wipe to keep them germ-free.

7. Clean a little before you go to bed

No matter how tired you may be, if you want to keep your house spotless, take a few minutes to tidy up your space. Maybe rearrange your couch pillows, or do a quick sweep, or chuck any stray pieces of litter in the trash. At least, when you wake up the next morning, you get one less thing to worry about.
