It’s hot. It’s been a hot weekend and with children I am forever tidying, clearing away and cleaning up after them. Cleaning in hot weather is a nightmare and something I would like to try and make as fuss free as possible. Usually, being in a flat, you’d think it would be easy to keep clean and tidy but with a lack of storage space and a family of four who do not live with minamalist intentions means lots of clutter. I really need to do something about it.
I am absolutely the kind of person that hates and begrudges cleaning. I do not understand how people can get enjoyment out of it. I just end up with a bad back and a hot sweaty mess. Especially in this weather. I am all about making things as simple, quick and easy as possible which is why most of the flooring in my home is wooden. Engineered wood flooring is one such type that is easy to put together and is quick and easy to clean when you’d rather be cooling down in the pool. If only we had a garden so in the hot weather the kids could play outside and I wouldn’t have to keep clearing up after them!
I am slowly finding some great deals and tips on storage to help with the clutter. I have a few big jobs I really need to do such as sorting out our cupboards. We are, hopefully, finally, buying a new bed next month to replace our very broken frame. Our bedroom is one I need to attack and declutter next. It’s hard sharing a room with a toddler as his bed takes up a great deal of space but I’m hoping with a new bed where we can’t shove everything underneath the bed and hope no one see’s it again will reclaim the space in some way. It’s also an excellent chance to sort out everything in that room properly. Right now though, it’s way to hot to be stuck in that room amongst the clutter and get it done so I’ll stick with the smaller easier jobs.
