You get somehow depressed in the same moment you hear about cleaning, well, yeah, it is definitely not your thing – you don’t like it because it is tiring and annoying and time-consuming and mostly because you don’t achieve the results you dream of. You spend your whole Saturday washing the windows, climbing on chairs and losing balance several times and the result is the easy Sunday morning when you with a cup of coffee sit on the couch and notice that you have done absolutely 7689044102_bfffe0cfeenothing and the windows’ glass is still dirty as hell. And let’s better not mention the completely unsuccessful you performed once when you were too brave and claimed that you are a cleaning master.

In fact, however, it is all about the know-how or experience, you will either learn how to maintain your home properly or will make some mistakes that will give you a lesson. And because no one deserves to suffer the bad cleaning disappointment, here are the habits you should acquire. We all write differently and learn differently, love differently because we are all too different. So it is more than logical that the cleaning technique, which works for ones, can be absolutely unsuitable for others, which means also that you should create your own cleaning routine. However, after an unsuccessful end of tenancy cleaning, I decided to act like an adult and hired one of the best London’s cleaning companies and the advice the experts from the cleaning team gave me was priceless because they definitely have far more experience than I will ever gain. So consult with the professionals and find the right tools, equipment, which will allow you to clean skillfully and efficiently. Don’t become too attached to belongings It may sound completely off the point, but it is indeed so closely connected. You are a keeper and you have that ticket from the concert you went to with your ex-boyfriend and you enjoyed so much, you save all the birthday cards you were given through the years on a shelf in your bedroom, you believe that these all are memories and this is to some extent true, but being too attached to belongings is not good for you, because without realizing it, you will start paying attention to things only and the memories should be somewhere in your heart, they are sensations and emotions, not a ticket, for sure.

Here is the end of tenancy company I consulted.

Put everything back

Well, this here is maybe the most important habit ever. And the one that almost all of you don’t have, as well. The truth is that if you come back home and you put your shoes in the closet, if after you have eaten that bagel for lunch, you put the dishes in the dishwasher and after you have cooked a dinner for your family, you ddeep clean the oven, you will be able to clean everything so much faster. And this rule is the cleaning interpretation of the general one: “Keep life simple!”

You like the whole idea of travelling, but you are too rarely doing it, because you believe that you simply cannot afford it. Well, this attitude is either naïve, or stupid. Yes, travelling will cost you a particular amount of money,balloons-1012541_960_720 but it is so worth it. Instead of spending your salary for buying clothes and shoes, eating in restaurants every evening, having a take away coffee every morning before work, you can go on a long weekend trip to Paris and you will feel free and your heart will be full of joy and happiness and you will make some photos and more important some memories which will make home in your soul and will make you feel better every time you have some kind of reason to be sad and to think that the world is too miserable and absurd. Travelling is fun, it is valuable and enthralling. And the good news is that in spite of your delusion it may be done on budget. You should only know how. The timing This is probably the most crucial part. There are certain months or periods of time, which millions of people prefer and choose – like the whole summer and especially August and the weeks before and after Christmas. And there is one thing certain, the prices of all plane tickets and train ones and so on will be much higher then. And if you in the middle of July decide to travel only a month later, you will end up spending far too much money. Being wise enough, however, you will plan your trip in advance and you will buy the tickets later and you will be able to go in the city of your dreams in the low season, when the tourists are vastly less (and the prices remarkably lower). The accommodation When you are traveling on budget, you have to be completely aware of your priorities, which means, that staying in an expensive and luxurious hotel is maybe not the best idea. Choose the right accommodation! In most of the cities visited by a lot of tourists there are many apartments and studious that can be rented for a couple of days – usually they have nice locations, they are well-appointed, they are bigger than the hotel rooms for sure and most often have a kitchen, which means that you won’t have to spend so much for food as well. And you don’t have to prepare some complicated meals, you can simply eat like the natives and in Paris this means a bottle of wine, some cheese and a loaf of bread – completely enough. The research Before you start your trip, take your time and do a proper research – the prices of the transport, the museums, the attractions and so on, check if there are some discounts and buy some tickets online so that you can avoid the queues and save time. The research is always useful, so in Paris, for instance, every last Sunday of the month you can visit all museums free of charge. And this is amazing.
