5 Easy Hack To Managing Household Chores And Work Efficiently
Here are 5 simple hacks from our experts that can help you to effectively manage your office work, and take care of all your household chores, easily.
1. One Step At A Time
If you have gotten into a habit of postponing certain chores, such as laundry, to the end of the week, or to any one day of the week, then this needs to be changed. The simple reason behind is, when you tend to collect laundry and plan on doing it over the weekend altogether it can take up a lot of your free weekend time.
Instead of putting off doing the laundry on a single day, you can choose to wash a couple of clothes every time you go in for a shower. You will be surprised how less your laundry load becomes by the end of the week, using this tip.
2. Improved Household Chore Schedule
Spreading your immense amount of household chores into smaller sections, for daily completion, is an excellent way to minimize the workload of the chores for you. Make sure that your planned schedule includes dusting/cleaning at least once a day for the whole house, or you can choose to clean one room a day, thus completing the chore efficiently.
3. Cooking Chores
A warm meal at the end of the day is what most of us dream about when returning home. However, when you live alone and are responsible for cooking your own meals then it is advisable to learn efficient cooking methods.
Some simple tricks for this include determining what you plan on cooking beforehand, so that you can prepare for it easily. Once you reach home, you can simply cut, slice, dice and prepare the ingredients you need for the recipe that day, even before you change your clothes. As most of the time in cooking is taking with preparing the ingredients, it becomes remarkably efficient to cook meals once you have already prepared the ingredients.
4. Planning and Execution
One of the most effective ways to remember your household chores schedule is to write it down. You may think your memory is excellent, and we don’t doubt it, however, with the stress of work and house, we tend to forget one or the other thing.
Writing down your monthly, weekly and daily schedule for performing the chores is an excellent way to ensure that you never lag behind.
5. Be Flexible
Not every day is the same when you are a working professional. There are times when you may have to reach work early or even stay late after work. This can have an adverse effect on your household chores schedule.
Always be prepared for this eventuality by being mentally flexible for such an event. At such a time, you will need to be prepared to make alteration and changes to your schedule and re-prioritize your chores accordingly.
Why let work and home become two different ends of your daily life? You can easily manage to be an excellent employee and an efficient household manager at the same time by integrating these simple tips into your daily schedule.
