The Joy of Cleaning

Hello and welcome to my cleaning blog. Cleaning can bring you a lot of joy. Without it, our homes and businesses would literally be covered in old food, dust, and garbage. My name is Penny, and in this blog, I'm going to cover cleaning techniques and tips for staying organized. Whether you are trying to wash a stain out of a shirt or keep on top of the vacuuming, I hope these posts help. I also plan to write about hiring professional cleaners for your home, office, or even your industrial facility. My hope is that this blog brings you as much joy as a clean space.

3 Ways To Manage Your Household More Efficiently

Catherine Edwards

Whether you also work full-time outside of the home or are busy juggling the responsibilities of a stay-at-home parent, managing a household is time-consuming work. If you'd like to continue running your home in an organized way but would also like to gain more free time for yourself, the key is to find ways to streamline your household management. These tips for managing your household more efficiently will save you significant time each week, allowing you to have more time for relaxation, hobbies, or friends and family:

Sign Up for Dry Cleaning Delivery

Dry cleaning delivery services can completely eliminate one of your time-consuming weekly errands. When dry cleaners offer delivery services, they will actually pick up your dry cleaning at your home, clean your clothing or bedding items, and then drop them back off at your home at a time that's convenient for you. You will get clean, wrinkle-free clothing and bedding without spending and real-time on this task. Some delivery dry cleaners even have mobile scheduling apps to make the whole process even more convenient.

Try Grocery Delivery

For a small nominal fee, you can now have all of your grocery shopping done for you. Many grocery stores now offer their own grocery delivery programs, while services like Instacart will actually pick up grocery and personal items from multiple stores so you can get everything on your list at once.

Just think about how much time you spend driving to the grocery store in traffic, finding parking, wandering the aisles looking for all your groceries, standing in line, and then driving home and carrying all of your groceries inside. Eliminating these tasks by having your groceries delivered is a major time saver and stress reducer.

Do Weekly Food Prep

Another great way to streamline your household is to set aside time each weekend to prep food for the week. By doing all of your veggie and fruit washing, dicing, and chopping at one time you will save serious time the rest of the week. Healthy snacks can be prepared and then divided into small containers so you can grab and go during the week. Dinner and lunch ingredients can be prepared and labeled to make mealtimes quick and easy, and encourage more healthy home-cooked meals and less eating out. 

By incorporating these tips into the way you manage your household, you will soon feel more organized and less stressed.
