I know I find it hard to keep up with housework. After work and after a hard week's worth of work, all I want to do is go home and chill! Keeping a clean house is apparently easier than we think. Check out these seven tips from "cleaning experts" (whatever that means):

Fox News Magazine recently offered up these tips on how to keep your house clean all the time:

  1. Make your bed right after you get up in the morning. It should become a regular part of your routine just like brushing your teeth and getting dressed.
  2. Don't procrastinate. Dealing with stuff later means you accumulate clutter. So don't create piles (go through stuff immediately and organize it on the spot).
  3. Break down jobs into manageable chunks. Assign certain rooms to days of the week (like clean the bathroom every Tuesday, and do the laundry on Sunday).
  4. Get an empty basket and toss everything into it that doesn't belong in the room you're cleaning (then redistribute stuff to its proper spot later).
  5. Motivate yourself. Blast your favorite music while you go at it, and set time limits and offer yourself rewards for completed jobs.
  6. Hide cleaning supplies in each room. Most people keep all their cleaning supplies in one place...under the kitchen sink. Instead, tuck some supplies into every room.
  7. Invite people over. That always seems to produce a clean house!
