These House Rules Are the Key to A Clean Home

Maintaining your home in, let’s not say good, but at least satisfying condition, is not that easy, but not something beyond your strengths as well. When you are living alone, you are free to take care of your place just as you like. You are a little bit chaotic and that’s ok, so you won’t bother when your home is somehow messy. You are a fastidious person, who wants everything in life to be perfectly organized and adores the order, so you are cleaning your home regularly and you feel there so damn nice. There comes a moment in life, however, when you happen to live with somebody else and while in the university it is for a couple of months only and you and your roommates are young and wild and so careless that a little bit of dirt is not something that will drive you mad, when you get married and your family starts growing, the things are getting serious and this whole idea of home maintenance and keeping your home not clean, but in a nice condition, is so far away. The pure fact that you and your spouse have completely different habits and cleaning routines and your kids have none makes your house too often look like e battle-field. But the reality is simple – it is all about some kind of proper training and the creating of rules you all have to follow.

How much nicer would it be if they put their things where they belong first and only afterwards start with the new game.

You have made a mess at home and haven’t taken care of it, ok, you will be washing the dishes for a week then.

Getting kids to eat healthy may not always be easy and none of us want to argue with our children about what they can and cannot eat!
