Got spring fever? Get spring cleaning! Here are 4 tips from Domestic CEO to help make spring cleaning easier and less time consuming!
Think of incentives that will encourage everyone, but sometimes individual rewards work better. After all, your 3-year-old will get excited about a sparkly sticker but the 12-year-old would rather have earned screen time with his favorite X-box game. Figure out what works in your house so kids learn that working brings worthwhile results.
Is it just you and the spouse? Ordering in your favorite take-out or renting that movie you’ve wanted to see can be a personal reward. Even a bubble bath or 30-minutes of uninterrupted reading time feels like a luxury to many of us. Whatever incentive you choose, just remember to reward yourself for a job well done, otherwise cleaning will end up being a drudgery.
