1. Wash dishes right after you eat or drink

Let me start with my favorite thing that I like to do. And this can make your life 100x easier. I'm going to explain why is that as well. But washing your dishes right after you eat or drink is a great and productive thing to do. Once you finish eating or drinking, don't throw them in the sink to wash them. 

This is something I figured would be easier than washing them late. Because I was helping my mom doing the dishes when I was living with my parents. It was a struggle to clean when it stays in the sink for a while. Especially, when it sticks on the pan or whatever I'm cleaning. And I used to hate spending so hours cleaning when there are so many dishes to clean. 

So, I started telling my family to clean after them. When they just finished, it would take a few minutes to even a couple of minutes sometimes. One of the great ways to keep things organized. You don't need to spend hours cleaning dishes. Everyone is cleaning after them would save you effort and time. 


If you are with your partner, it would be easy to develop this habit and start doing this productive thing. Well, it might be a little challenging for a family, but I'm sure it will be possible. One of the great and productive things to do at home. However, start working on it and let it take its time. After a while, it will be worth it. 


2. Go through your stuff and get rid of dusty old and ripped stuff

Every home surely has old stuff stored. And sometimes it can just take up free spaces for other new things. So, going through old stuff from time to time in the home is good. However, you don't have to throw them out in the garbage unless you are completely sure of it. Because some of them could be a memory and I understand how it feels doing that. But you need to store them somewhere not where you put the main things. 

The ripped stuff won't be useful to you anymore. So, cleaning them would give you free space. And make things well organized. Having a stack of ripped and old stuff in the home is not good. I mean, I can say that there are a lot of people already doing that and it helps to keep the house fresh and clean. 

Some people like to keep things as a memory and I'm one of them. However, I clean my wardrobe and storage from time to time. Keep things fresh. When there is some of the old stuff, I have a special place for them. This way, it won't bother me with the main things that I use or wear. You can see why it's one of the productive things to do at home. How it can help you to stay organized. 

You can do this consistently every few weeks or every month. Whatever you find is the best for you. It depends on much you get in a week or month. If you don't get a lot of things, maybe can be after two months. For example, when I get a lot of shoes or clothes in a month. But my things stay fresh until it's not suitable to wear anymore. But I keep my wardrobe organized every week. This is just for clothes, but pictures, toys, and many things we need to go through. Even if you have a stack of papers and books that need to be fresh.  


3. Read books about self-improvement 

Some things that can help you directly to stay organized. But like this one which can help you learn more about how to stay organized. Reading books about self-development can help a lot. And when I say self-development. There are a lot of types that you can look at. Especially the ones that can help to stay organized. Improve the ways of organizing yourself and things in the house by reading books. 

There are unlimited books that you can read at home. Which is one of the productive things to do at home. And it will help you to develop and improve yourself. Become different with everything and stay more organized. I'm sure there are a lot of things that might be new to you when learning through reading books. 

It will be easy for people who love to read books. But if you don't read at all, you might need to fight through until you make it a habit. In the end, it will be so much worth it. Actually, reading will help you to be successful in life. Whether to stay organized or do many things to tackle in life. 

Make sure you read books that help you to improve yourself. Things that can help you to stay organized. Whether you are a parent or just an adult. Since there are so many books, you need to know how to choose the best ones. And you did one of the productive things to do at home.


4. Train your kids to stay organized and clean after them at home

Next, it would be for parents. And we all know how kids can mess up the house. So, one of the productive things to do at home is to train your kids. Make sure to teach them how to stay organized. It might be difficult for some parents, but once you achieve it, you will be stress-free. If you don't do it, it will be stressful all day a week haha. 

This is for parents, but if you are a brother or sister and want to do a productive thing. Maybe you can train your little sister or brother how to stay organized. Because I do this with my little brother. It's fun to do it with my little brother and my sisters as well. That can save us keep cleaning after them. They will be more productive by cleaning after them. Which is a win for us and for the kids as well. 

It's one of the Productive things to do at home, but you need to develop it as a habit. It might not be easy to do it. But it will help you a lot to get a much easier life with kids. Trust me, kids always mess up the house and I used to help my mom clean after my little brother.

You can let them follow the next one because it can help with this as well. Keep reading to know about it. It will help to keep things organized all the time. No need to keep organizing things every time the kids mess up the house. Sometimes you would feel lazy to do it and keep things a mess. 


5. Develop a routine/system for family members to follow to keep things organized

I say develop, but at first, it should be "create" a routine/system for the family to follow. And let all the family practice following it and make it fun. After a while, it will remove a lot of stress from you. Especially, when you host a party in your house and all the family come to your house.

You don't need to stress about people following the system. At least, not too fast because it will take time for them to make it a habit. It's one of the productive things to do at home for everyone. So, don't rush it and make it fun. Enjoy the process and encourage your family to do it. If you have friends coming over to the house, they can follow it. Always make things organized o matter what. 

Things that make home organized. For example, keeping the shoes well organized. A system to let everyone keep it organized. Maybe using a tool or drinking something. It depends on the house and what you do. I'm sure there is a system you can make to let everyone keep things organized. That is one of the productive things to do at home. Sometimes might take time to achieve this, but stick to it until it's done.

  12. As always, these are great tips! I keep a routine in place for my family to follow so that we can somewhat keep our house tidy and organized. Of course, with boys, it's not easy because it's a constant reminder. However, I can see slight improvements in the way they both clean up and that is priceless! The one thing I need to improve on though is going through old paperwork. That one I don't have a good handle as much!

  15. There are a few of these I could do with adopting into my home life. Specifically the dishes one. Working shift work doesn't help with that one though, as often you're either exhausted after work or rushing to get back to it.
