As a work-at-home professional it is important to have a housecleaning schedule. You have options: you can hire someone to do the cleaning for you, you can schedule specific times during the week to do it, or you can select one day each week to do your housecleaning. The goal should be to make the most effective use of your time and if paying someone to do it while you use your time to work on strategies in your business, then that’s a great choice. Only you can make the final decision.
If your home office is well-organized, you have items that you use frequently placed together on your desk or within easy reach. Your cleaning supplies should be stored together for easy retrieval when you need them.
The kitchen is usually one of the areas of the home that is used most frequently. Keep utensils, dishes and the like that you use frequently together and work at cleaning up immediately after use. You do not need the feeling of guilt and stress knowing that it still needs to be cleaned every time you pass your messy kitchen to and from your home office. Just get it done immediately.
Multi-task when possible. If you’re heading to a section of your home to do one task, think of what you could take to the room at the same time, saving you time and steps. Implementing strategies in your business includes networking with other work-at-home women. A great organization for work-at-home women is the AWHW.org
