If you've ever been to my house, you know I'm messy. Well- I've decided to make an effort to change my ways... so I googled some tips, haha..
Try starting with these tips: (from zenhabits.net)
hang your clothes up or put them in hamper immediately
keep your sink clean and shiny (wash dishes immediately, clean sink after)
pick up before you go to bed and before you leave the house
empty your trash daily
15 minutes decluttering sessions each day (see How to Declutter)
clean your shower, toilet and bathroom sink after each use (only takes a couple minutes!) (i don't know about this one... :))
have a place for everything, and put everything in its place immediately
make your bed each morning
keep flat surfaces (counters, tables, desks) clear of clutter
put away your stuff as soon as you get home
so, i'll start (tomorrow :)) and we'll see how it goes. maybe you'll be eating off my floors soon enough...?
