Moving seems like a never-ending process once you get started, but that feeling of accomplishment when you are finished makes it worth all the hassle. The first few days in your new home once everything is unpacked feels peaceful – everything is in its place, and it is clean and uncluttered. The tricky part is keeping it that way. Here are a few ways to keep your home clean and organized after you move in:

Start Small

If you are a bit messy by nature, it might be difficult to all of a sudden start being more organized. Cleaning your entire home from can be quite overwhelming for someone who does not usually do this, so try and take on smaller cleaning habits first. You can start small by washing your dishes right after you eat each time and then work your way up by taking on more cleaning habits.

Abandon Your Shoes

You can dramatically reduce the amount of dirt in your home by simply leaving your shoes at the front door. If your home has a lot of shoes coming in and out, make sure to use a storage unit near the front for your family members.


Moving is the perfect opportunity to let go of things you do not need or ever use. You might be surprised to find out how much money you can get for some of your old items as well. Go through all of your things and get rid of anything you have not used in more than a year. Either donate these items or sell them so that you can free up space in your home.

Clean the Air

When we think of tidying up, most of us think about mopping, dusting, sweeping and vacuuming without any regard to air quality. Yet, indoor pollution is a serious problem that can affect your health negatively. Cleaning can cause settled dust to become airborne, which can affect our respiratory system. Remember to change your air filters seasonally so that your system can effectively clean your the air in your home. You can also use an air purifier and houseplants to remove allergens and toxins from the air better.

Put Away After Using

Simply remembering to put away items after you are done using them can save you a lot of time and effort. Ensure each item has its own place to prevent build up and clutter. You may need to invest in more , but at least there will finally be room for everything.
