Keeping a tidy home is the goal of every homeowner. However, it requires time and discipline to achieve that—it can be very challenging, especially if you're a messy person by nature. If you struggle with following a proper cleaning schedule, you don't have to worry, you can start with baby steps! 

Begin your journey to a better home by reminding yourself of this motto:

If you don't use it everyday, put it away.

This rule helps you narrow down and sort out exactly what should stay in view or keep for the long run! It also lessens visual clutter when it comes to things that just collect dust in certain spots. Eventually, you'll be able to slim down the overflowing amount of items you own. 

For example, if your counters are crowded with groceries and appliances, practice the rule by taking out everything that you don't use daily. Some things you may want to leave in sight are your coffee machine, microwave oven and breakfast items. Same goes for your bedroom—clean out your nightstand by only keeping a lamp, your book, your phone and your lotion or a balm that helps you sleep.
