Blog Title: Embracing Homemaking: How to Deal with an Extremely Messy House

Blog Introduction:
For young women who desire to be homemakers, the idea of taking care of a home and family can be daunting, especially when the house is a total mess. As a modern traditional woman who values simplicity and traditional values, I understand how important it is to maintain a clean and organized home. In this blog post, I will share my practical tips and tricks for tackling an extremely messy house.

Start with a Plan

Before you even begin cleaning, you need a plan of attack. Create a cleaning schedule and prioritize which areas of the house need the most attention. This will help you stay focused and avoid feeling overwhelmed. Start with the most cluttered space and work your way around. Stick to the plan, stay focussed and don’t give up!

Utilize a Timer

Set a timer for 15-20 minutes, and start cleaning (even if it feels like a small period of time - it still counts!). Once the timer goes off, take a short break, and then set the timer again. Keeping up the pattern will keep you motivated and push you to reach your goals.

Declutter and Organize

When it comes to decluttering, it's important to be ruthless. Get rid of things you don't need or use. Invest in storage boxes, bins, and baskets for easier organization. Have a designated place for items that are commonly misplaced, create a storage space for seasonal items and find new ways to keep your home organized. You can use well-organized and labeled baskets, cabinets, storage room spaces, and racks for easy storage.

Set Achievable Goals

It's important to remember that you can't clean the entire house in one day. Set achievable goals and work towards them each day. Even if it's just one room, it'll feel gratifying for your efforts. You could dedicate each day of the week to different areas of the house. For instance, Monday is the day for the living room, Tuesday can be for the kitchen, Wednesday you clean the bedrooms, and so on. It's important to make sure you balance time for cleaning and your personal responsibilities.

Get the Family Involved

Maintaining a clean and organized house is a team effort, and it's essential to get the entire family involved. Assign age-appropriate chores to each family member. Even your toddlers can help with simple tasks like putting away toys. Encourage them to stay active and responsible for caring for their own spaces.

Being a modern traditional woman doesn't mean having a perfectly clean home at all times. It's simply about doing your best and being intentional about the values you prioritize. By creating a cleaning schedule or a reasonable plan and sticking to it, utilizing timers, decluttering and organizing, setting achievable goals, and keeping in mind that it's a team effort, there's no mess too big to tackle. Embracing homemaking is about finding balance and peace in creating a beautiful and purposeful home for you and your family. Remember, it's all about progress, not perfection.
