The Importance of the Order in Which You Do Chores

If you want to save yourself time and effort and minimize chores and cleaning, look at the order in which you’re doing tasks to make sure it’s optimal.

Are your appliances working for you?

Get the washer, dryer, or dishwasher going, and let it do the work for you while you busy yourself with other tasks.

Cleaning vs. tidying

If you clean while a room is untidy it will take longer and be less effective. So, always tidy up before you clean.

Staying power

Stick to the room you’re working in. You’ll waste a lot of time moving from room to room.  Work from ceiling to floor. If you clean the ceiling last, you’ll have to clean the floor and do the dusting again.

Choose the order in which you will work in the various rooms and stick to it. Before you start, make sure you have all the cleaning items you’ll need so you don’t waste time trying to track them down.

Have chore plans

Put together a daily or weekly chore plan to suit your unique family. Make sure everyone is assigned age-appropriate chores.
