Life can be just plain hard sometimes. With so many things going on at once, it can be hard to remember to do the little things, which quickly turn to big things that you can’t find the time for. Here are a few tips for keeping your life simpler so you can focus on what’s really important.

Cutting Down on Laundry.

Instead of doing a little bit of laundry every day, consider cutting it down to only when you have large loads. It will save water and it won’t be a daily chore. Also, if it doesn’t smell or look dirty, don’t be afraid to wear it again! Nobody will know but you. This should go without saying, but certain articles of, ahem, personal items do not apply.

Get Rid Of Furniture You Don’t Need.

Do you keep bumping your shin on that second coffee table in the living room that really only collects clutter? Do you really need it? There are charity organizations, such as The Salvation Army that will come pick up unwanted items from your house if you just give them a call.

Clean Out Home Decor.

If a decorative item sits out long enough, eventually it will just fade into the background of your home and you can forget it’s there. A cluttered home can make you feel stressed even if you have no reason to be, so get rid of items and art that don’t mean enough to you to keep out on display.

Alton Brown Had The Best Rule For The Kitchen:

Avoid buying anything for the kitchen that only has one use. Those oh-so-brilliant infomercial items take up a lot of space, and can completely derail the look of your kitchen, so be practical with the things you keep in the kitchen and get rid of anything you don’t use regularly.

Hire A House Cleaner!

Just think of how wonderful it would feel to come home from a hard day at work and not have to worry about the state of your home. Sounds pretty nice, right?
