If you’re trying to do anything productively a system, and at some stage a routine, should be set. This is important for everything working from home or elsewhere.
When you’re home all day and don’t have routines in place your day may become a shamble with nothing getting done properly. Likewise, if you return home after work to a list of jobs and no order or routine, it may be difficult to even get started.
Unclutterer has some examples for different job routines around the house that will make life easier.
Deep Cleaning — The best way that I’ve found to tackle cleaning is to give each room a day of the week (Monday is living room, Tuesday is family room, Wednesday is bedroom, Thursday is bathrooms, Friday is kitchen, etc.). I’ll dust, clean the floors, and do other chores for 15 minutes to half an hour everyday per room instead of a five-hour, full-house, cleaning session all on one day.
