Cleaning Routine and Organizing Tips

One thing that you may or may not know about me is that I LOVE when my apartment is clean and organized. To me, it’s the best feeling ever. So I figured I would share my favorite products and my routine to keeping everything clean and organized.

First things first, I try really hard and pick up every single day. I make sure everything ends up back where it belongs and I do the dishes everyday. This way, when I go to actually clean, I don’t have to pick up first.

I usually clean every single weekend. I start with cleaning the kitchen (since I usually clean after I meal prep) so I wipe down the counters and do the dishes. I then go and wipe down all the surfaces in my home, including the dining room table, all the tables in the living room, my night stand, TV stands and my desk. Then I work on the bathroom. I clean the tub/shower, toilet, and the sink. Next, I sweep the bathroom and the kitchen, since those are the only areas without carpet. I take the garbage out, vacuum, and mop. In that order. This order might seem weird but it really works well for me.

As far as organization, I broke my apartment up into four sections: my bedroom, the extra bedroom, the bathroom and closet, and then the kitchen. Each weekend, I go through and organize one area. This way, each space is getting deep cleaned and reorganized once a month. It’s been working really well for me so far!
