I’ve got a confession for you: I am a terrible housekeeper.
It’s true. I am pretty good at purging and decluttering these days, but cleaning? It just does not come naturally to me.
There’s only one way my house stays clean.
Honestly, setting up systems in our home have made a world of difference for our family. With a plan in place, I’ve got just a couple of things to do each day, which keeps everything from building up on me.
(Although sometimes that still happens and we have to use the whole weekend to catch up on laundry. Like we did last weekend. Real life, people. Real life.)
Systems are a sanity-saver, plain and simple. They take just a few hours to set up, and then instead of working from scratch every time, you’re just maintaining! We use systems to help lots of areas of life go more smoothly, not just cleaning.
So today, let’s talk about why systems matter, before we dive into the next few days of setting them up!
Why Do Systems Matter?
Honestly, I didn’t really have a need for systems before I had kids. I had enough time and energy to get the things done that I needed to get done. (Also I had one room in a shared townhouse to take care of, not a whole house!)
But with kids and a husband and a house and meals and…and…and… there’s just a lot to do! So, setting up systems saves me time & energy.
When I wake up, I don’t have to figure out a plan for that day, because I already know what I need to get done!
I can stay one step ahead of the house stuff (when all is going smoothly), and when things do get out of hand, it just takes a few extra hours to get everything back on plan, instead of a few extra days! Then, I’m able to spend the time I do have on the people who need it the most.
I know that as moms, the responsibilities we juggle just always seem to keep piling on. We just don’t have a lot of time, and it’s easy to feel like you’re always catching up!
But it doesn’t have to be that way. And I’m a firm believer that establishing simple systems is the answer many of us have been looking for!
