Life Hacks to Make Chores More Fun
Even getting started on household cleaning can see like the worst thing in the world. The easiest thing would be to just not do it but since we want to live in a home and not a pig-sty there’s really no option but to do them.
Thankfully for us there are several hacks designed to make household chore fun and a little bit easier. Why not take these for a spin to see if this make cleaning a little easier?
Flowers to make you smile
To start off, buy yourself a pretty bouquet of flowers to place in a prominent spot. You will be amazed at how much of a difference flowers make in the filthiest of places! Every time you feel like you are slipping into a funk while cleaning, turn to that beautiful bouquet and feel the smile coming on!
Eliminate the wrinkles without an iron!
Need to wear your favorite pair of pants but can’t because of wrinkles? Don’t fret! Just toss the offending pair of pants into the dryer with a few ice cubes and watch the wrinkles come out with minimum effort!
Clutter in your handbag?
As a woman, I know that I can’t live without my handbag, because I quite literally carry my life in it. So, it is so easy to lose stuff in it. But how do I keep things organized? I use smaller pouches to put smaller items in so that I don’t lose track.
Practice the Marie Kondo way of life
Internalize the mantra “If it doesn’t give you joy, lose it”. Look through your closet and discord or donate the things you don’t need. See how this opens up your closet.
Multitask, but make it fun
Do something fun while you’re tackling your boring chores. Listen to your favorite music or an audio tape. If you don’t have time to do those beauty treatments that you promised you would, now’s your time! Apply that face mask or slather on that hair mask and continue with your chores.
Make storage space visually appealing
Too much stationary, hair ties and cosmetics lying around? Place cute catch all containers that you can put your stuff in. Not only will it be organized, you’ll be adding to your home aesthetic.
It may seem silly, but there’s something about having a clearly labeled bin that is immensely calming and satisfying. It also cuts down on the constant flow of “Where is [insert object here]?” questions from children and husbands.
Love that morning cup of coffee or enjoying that cream cheese bagel? Why not club it with a little bit of cleaning? For example, while you’re waiting for your coffee to get ready, load the dishwasher. You’ll feel instantly motivated.
