  • #27 – Wipe down the shower / bath after every use
    • BENEFIT: saves time when it comes to cleaning – I use a shower squeegee** which works a treat!
  • #28 – Ensure that when you leave a room you scan to see if anything needs to be taken out of it – then do it!
    • BENEFIT: will keep you on top of tidying and keep your home GUEST READY
  • #29 – Do a load of washing daily (if required) to keep on top of the washing and drying system
    • BENEFIT: no more wanting items that aren’t available as yet – or needing to grab the iron to do one thing last minute
  • #30 – Always put things back where they should go
    • BENEFIT: you will always find things when you need them

Housekeeping habits

  • #31 – When cooking, cook an extra meal and freeze
    • BENEFIT: You will always have something quick and healthy to eat when there’s no time to cook
  • #32 – When cooking, wash up and keep tidy while you go
    • BENEFIT: leaving less to do afterwards when the last thing you want to do after eating is get up and tidy up!
  • #33 – Tick items that you use up on a shopping list – when you have used them up
    • BENEFIT: you don’t need to remember everything, and then you can grab it whenever you are going to the shops, knowing that everything is on there that you need.
  • #34 – Fill your car up with petrol when you pass a petrol station
    • BENEFIT: saves time going specifically to do this when you are running low (works well if you do it after you have used about 50%)

    • BENEFIT: A balanced diet can help you be more productive, healthier and so many more benefits its hard not to have this as one of your key habits!

    HI!! I love your site! (I found it on Pinterest and went from there!) I sent in my email to get the 52 habits list, but it never arrived. 🙁 I don’t know what I did wrong. Can you help me out?

    Thanks, Holly

      Hi Holly – I’ll send you the link – don’t know why this would have happened and I’m so sorry! x

    Just found your blog while stressing about the state of the house. I love it! Discovered I do already have some good habits which is reassuring. Going to have a good clear out using your tips and practise more good habits.

    😉 Had I only been reading through the list, I probably wouldn’t have noticed, but I was copying them down into my planner / journal when I realized one was missing. Thanks for your update!

    • Chrissy @ Organise My House Sep 21, 2015 at 10:15 am #

    Happy to say that 5 items on the list are already my habits so this week I’ll star setting the breakfast table the night before which should encourage me to also eat breakfast EVERY day. Thanks for a great list. Jo @ Let’s Face the Music

      Hi Jo – glad the list has inspired you! – Happy new year x

    Re: Evening routines. You should NEVER put a dishwasher, tumble drier or washing machine on before you go to bed. These items are the frequent causes of house fires. My dishwasher caught fire just as I was about to go out shopping and fortunately I was around to put it out. I was in the habit of putting these items on as I went to work so it would all be ready when I came home. Now I only put these items on when I am home and can keep an eye on them

      Hi Meriel

      Thanks so much for your comment. You are totally right, as I’ve recently heard that insurance can be null and void if you have left the house when one of these items is on and it causes a fire. I have now updated that in the post to be to set the dishwasher straight after tea so it’s finished by bedtime. You still have the result of clean dishes when you wake up – but everything’s off overnight.

      Have a great weekend!
      Chrissy x
