5 Home Cleaning Resolutions for the New Year

Kickstart the new year with a cleaner, clutter-free lifestyle. Here are 5 home cleaning resolutions to help you create a more manageable home.

As the new year unfolds, it’s time to usher in positive changes that will transform your living space. To create a more manageable home, leave overwhelming home cleaning tasks behind. Our 5 practical resolutions include simple and effective strategies to help you get off to a fresh start for 2024.

1. Create a home cleaning routine

Consistency is key when it comes to home cleaning. Establishing a home cleaning routine will help make the seemingly daunting task of maintaining a clean home more achievable. Outline specific tasks for each day or schedule a particular time for cleaning sessions. By breaking down what you have to do, cleaning won’t seem too overwhelming. Alternatively, if you don’t have time for regular cleaning, hire a part-time maid instead.

2. Vacuum daily

Dust can easily build up in your home so it’s important to vacuum your home daily, especially high-traffic areas such as the dining area and living room or in areas where your children play. This will help to eliminate dust and allergens and also addresses the messes that come with having young children.

3. Get everyone involved

Share the responsibility of maintaining a tidy home with everyone in your household. Yes, your kids can help out too! By delegating age-appropriate tasks to family members, this fosters a sense of shared ownership. When chores are split up between different members of the family, this lightens up your workload.

4. Tidy up before bed

Set a stress-free tone for the next day by tidying up before you go to bed and preparing the morning tasks you need to do the night before. This could include simple things such as clearing countertops, organising items, wiping kitchen surfaces after cooking or putting the TV remote control where it belongs.

For your children, this could include packing their school bags, preparing school uniforms and doing a simple meal prep for recess the next day. This simple habit can make mornings less rushed, plus you get to wake up to a clean and inviting home.

5. Put things where they belong

Sometimes, when you’re super tired, you can’t help but leave things around. But clutter can easily accumulate when this happens. So break the habit of leaving items scattered around and make a conscious effort to put things back where they belong.

Whether it’s returning books to the shelf, placing toys back in the cupboard, putting clothes back in the closet or stacking dishes in the rack, this simple practice is crucial for maintaining a tidy and organised living space.


Embrace these five practical tips for a refreshed and organised living space in the new year. You’ll be well on your way to achieve a clutter-free and serene home that you and your family can enjoy.
