There are many better things you can do on the weekend instead of cleaning the entire house from the top the bottom but this is normally the only free time you have on hand outside the hectic working week that simply drenched out your energy, time, and motivation. The weekend is the time we all wait for and invest some time in relaxation, doing a hobby, or simply spending time with the family and friends.
Instead of this, the reality is that we often spend the whole two days free of work in vacuuming, scrubbing, wiping, and washing and we even cannot take proper rest and prepare for the upcoming working week. In order to make your Saturdays and Sundays a more enjoyable time than ever and help you spend as less time doing housework and chores as possible and still enjoy a cosy and clean home, we would like to share a few simple and effective time-saving tips and ideas for cleaning on the weekend… or how to prevent cleaning on the weekend!
Clean during the week
The more chores and household tasks you manage to tackle down during the week the less you will have to deal with during the weekend. This one is definitely a no-brainer, however, with the hectic lifestyle, most of us have during the working week, taking care of the cleanliness and tidiness of the house is easier said than done, indeed. However, once you manage to adapt and follow strictly a daily housekeeping schedule during the week, you will be able to quickly start keeping on track with everything that needs to be done and leave significantly fewer things to deal with during the Saturdays and Sundays.
A weekend cleaning schedule
As much a weekday cleaning schedule is, the same applies for a weekend housekeeping schedule too. So if you are wondering how to remain proactive and be productive during this time of the week, mapping up a plan can really make a difference.
Prepare for the week ahead
One great way to prepare yourself for the busy week ahead is jumping into the new workweek while being proactive and productive from the weekend. Set yourself in the right mood during the weekend and you will feel very energetic. Preparing yourself for the upcoming week during the weekend is a great way to save a lot of time once you are back to work. For example, you can prep some meals ahead or choose a week’s worth of outfits.
Involve the whole family
Who says that you are the only one having the responsibility of taking care of the whole house. It is definitely not a fair deal to spend your whole Saturday and Sundays in vacuuming, cooking, and tidying up while the other members of the family are enjoying their free time. Make it a family affair and let everyone have their fair share in maintaining the house clean and tidy.
Make it a fun
At the end of the day, what is a weekend if it is not a lot of fun? And who says that cleaning and maintaining the house cannot be fun too? For example, you can finally have the time to listen to a podcast, audiobook, or your favourite tunes while you are taking care of chores and household tasks.
Finally, do not forget to save some time for yourself and pamper yourself in your favourite way. You deserve to be happy and keep the balance in your life too so no chore is that important and worth sacrificing your happiness and well-being.
