With the New Year comes a chance to start fresh and improve upon yourself in every aspect of your life, including your home, routine, and even your health. The new year also gives you the opportunity to set goals and make plans to achieve them; here are some tips from Simply Maid Ok on how to clean your home and develop the habit of maintaining cleanliness, as you work to achieve your New Year’s dust-free and clean home!

Starting With a Clean Slate

There is no better time than a fresh new year to make resolutions that are going to be here for the next 365 days. Why not kick off the new year with a clean slate, fresh state, and fresh habits? Getting into the habit of doing a little bit more each day is a good way to start new habits for 2023.

Keep reading for more practical tips to get your home looking like you’ve flipped over a page and gotten things out of the way. But first, remember to take a deep breath. Inhale, exhale. This will allow you to obtain that fresh mindset to remain calm and positive, which can spread throughout your home. Remember that achieving goals and cleaning a home is a step by step process. Let’s get into it!

Goal Setting

What are your goals for the new year? Maybe you want to learn a new skill, start a new business, or get in shape. Whatever your goals are, it’s important to write them down and log them in a journal. Put sticky notes on your mirror or around your room.

These reminders will be great motivation throughout the day! This will help you stay on track and accountable. Plus, telling someone else about your goals will help keep you motivated. Find an accountability partner and work together to motivate each other.


One way to start the year off right is by decluttering your home and getting organized. This will help you feel more relaxed and in control of your life. Plus, it will be easier to focus on achieving your goals if your environment is clean and orderly. Here are some tips to help you get started:

  1. Start with one section or room at a time. Don’t try to do everything at once or you’ll get overwhelmed.
  2. Cleaning does not have to be a daunting task that takes up your whole weekend. Set a timer for 15-20 minutes whenever you get a chance and see how much you can get done in that short amount of time.
  3. Some great places to start are the kitchen cabinets, refrigerators, and pantries. Throw out any expired produce and snacks that are no longer edible, to prevent bacteria and mold from growing in these spaces. Similarly, you can dispose of any cosmetics, cleaning products, and so on that may be in your bathroom or storage space.
  4. Another place where clutter piles up is desks, shelves, and even the dining tables. Find a new place for your mail and loose leaf papers. Organize any valuables, and so on!
  5. Finally, the closet. Donate any clothes that no longer fit you to a local charity organization. You can support orphanages, domestic violence and homeless centers, and so on. Find a cause that resonates with you!

Once you have assessed your space and decluttered, it will be easier to organize and maintain cleanliness!

Strong Organizing System

One way to help you achieve your goals is to create an organizing system. This can be as simple as creating a list of things you need to do each day or setting up a specific place for all your important papers.

An organizing system can help you in many ways. It can save you time by helping you find things quickly, it can reduce stress by making it easier for you to stay on top of things, and it can help you be more productive overall.

Personalize Organization

#1: Keep it simple.

The more complicated your plan is, the less likely you are to see it through.

#2: Make it customizable.

With every new experience in life, your needs change and thus your system should, too.

#3: Make your system tangible.

Examples include apps like Google Calendar, paper calendars, and spreadsheet trackers. Other people like to have an old school paper to-do list to make sure they can cross things off when they are done. Nothing feels better than being able to cross something off your list!

Consistency and Accountability

To motivate ourselves, we can set mini-goals leading up to our major goal. This forces us to be more consistent and accountable with ourselves as we break down what we’re doing and all the steps involved in it. To put it simply, begin somewhere and progress little by little.

Don’t skip a day, hold yourself accountable. Developing a good discipline routine is important, but seeking a support group or partner will help, too. Having someone to lean on, especially when times are tough, can be an enormous help.

Encouragement and Rewards

A new year is the perfect time to turn over a new leaf and start towards a dust-free home. But it can be difficult to stay on track. That’s why it’s so important to motivate and encourage yourself along the way. Set up both short-term and long-term goals, as well as an even split of rewards.

Since as the days go by and you’re finding it more difficult to maintain your good habits, treat yourself as an investment by allowing yourself something to look forward to, like a day at the spa or buying a new book. That way, you will be motivated to do better in the long run and invest in yourself again.
