How to keep your house clean and organized?

Tip # 1: Put everything away after use

As you move from one room to another, quickly scan the place whether you could take anything with you or not. Make sure that after coming home you keep your shoes at its proper place along with other belongings. You know it is easy leaving your pair of shoes near the front door, a few shirts on your bed, and some unclean dishes in the sink until tomorrow.
