It feels good to know that your home is clean and tidy, but with busy schedules we often feel we’re not doing enough. Even if you hire a cleaning service, you may find it’s worth looking into some of the efficiency-focused cleaning apps, appliances and devices available online. Some can help us complete laborious tasks by setting up a schedule for us to follow. Others, like a robo-vac, do the work for us, and some, like a hand-held cordless vac, just make the task easier. Look for discounts online because, after all, having the latest tools can be a great investment in achieving effortless results.

You can get good advice online, too. Housekeeping coaches can help identify major obstacles to a clean and tidy household, such as clutter, and offer ways to eliminate or manage them. Many suggest that sharing certain domestic responsibilities can be a major stress-reliever. However, they are also quick to advise that sharing tasks requires honest conversation in advance. When approached positively, even the more unpleasant household chores can provide proof positive that many hands make light work.
