How to do this [what seems like] daunting and monumental task? Use what you’ve got!
You already have established habits and routines - use them to your advantage and make adjustments; build upon what you’re ALREADY doing. Yes, gaining your time back from all the stuff that was sucking it away is very exciting, BUT - implementing brand new systems and routines will be harder to maintain in the long run. Ease into it.
Home systems are the roadmap and routines are the action that will help you maintain a simple, efficient and functional home. These tools are especially valuable for “messy” people [like me] and help establish order, repetitiveness, and most importantly, WILL to get something done and maintain your minimalish efforts.
✨A few ways to get started with home systems and routines✨
🏠 Establish a loose daily routine that you can stick with about 80% of the time
🏠 Habit “stack”; when you do one thing you typically do, ADD something else you also need to get done - this is also great for adjusting bad habits!
🏠 Use a digital calendar that you share with other members of your household so you are all on the same page
🏠 Begin to create systems around one of these four home tasks - Laundry, Dishes, Tidying, Cleaning
