(NAPSI)—“Today is the day I will clean all the things!” We’ve all been there. We wake up with boundless energy and enthusiasm, ready to tackle the never-ending cleaning and organizing to-do list. But let’s face it, this motivation dwindles quickly because the list is daunting. Keep your home in order with these easy tasks.


• Make the beds every morning to brighten up a room and make it look pulled together.

• Put away clean clothes in closets and drawers right after washing.

• Pick up the miscellaneous items left on nightstands every day.
