When the schedule is full, you might feel like there’s no time to do…well, anything! No one likes to be in a rush. How can you do the million things you need to do in half the time? From cooking to house cleaning to getting ready to leave the house—it’s all a bit chaotic when you’ve got a long to-do list.

Here are a couple of things you can make a little easier for you as you’re dealing with all of your responsibilities.

Getting the House Cleaner in Less Time

It’s wonderful to come home to a clean house after you’ve been running around all day, but cleaning when your schedule is already packed might seem pretty impossible. There are a few ways around this.

The first, of course, is to find some cleaning services. Sometimes you have more important things to do than clean, and that’s okay.

Is your car looking a little bleak after the winter? When the weather starts to warm up, doing the house cleaning is going to extend to your car as it becomes a greater priority. You're probably already comfortable with how to wash a car, but are you doing the best job? Here are a few tips for getting both the inside and the outside really clean.

The Outside

When you're ready to wash your car, there's one important thing to remember: don't wash your car in direct sunlight. Move it to some shade or wait until later in the day, otherwise you could end up with soap spots or water streaks on your car. Good shade will provide the perfect amount of light to get it clean without any trouble!

Have you ever needed something and knew you had it, but could not find it? Have you struggled to gather clothes for the washer and spent more time looking around to see what you could find? Have you ever felt tired because the house was a total mess? Have you ever hustled with house cleaning because someone was coming over? Have you ever been embarrassed because someone surprisingly stopped by? Have you ever been tired when searching several rooms for a movie? Have you ever been annoyed by puzzles and other toys in cardboard boxes that don't stack well because they are mangled up? These situations are very real, whether you have experienced any of them or not. This is the perfect time to get more organized.

In your quest for housekeeping and organization, have you ever repurposed something interesting? Some of the most creative innovation arises from a need that is met with a repurposed solution. Everyone likes to have something in their home that makes people stop and say, “I wish I had thought of that!”

You can find lists of repurposed items with a simple search, but here are three favorites from across the web:

Lazy Susan

A Lazy Susan is an interesting tool anyway, just ask your children! You likely use it mostly in the kitchen to keep condiments in reach of everyone at the dinner table or to make spices and cooking supplies easy to grab.

You’ve bought a new house, and you’re ready to move out of your current home. Things are frantic, there are more things to do than there are hours in a day, and you feel torn in a million different directions.

From house cleaning to packing, everywhere you turn there’s another task waiting for you, and it’s easy to get overwhelmed. Take a deep breath, slow down, make a plan, and enlist some help. Here are three things you can do during your move to make things a little easier.

1. Box by Room and Label Everything. It’s tempting to throw random things into boxes, especially if you’re feeling a time crunch, but resist it, because unpacking a thrown together box can be a nightmare. Take a box into a room, start packing. When it’s full (or too heavy to add anything else), close it and label it with where you intend to unpack it.
