Who doesn't want a tidy and organised home that runs like a well-oiled machine? The only problem with this, is that it can seem to take forever to clean, tidy and get everything in order, especially high traffic areas such as hallways, which almost negates the whole point! Professional cleaners make it look so easy to get the organised and tidy home of your dreams, but that's because they are doing all the hard work for you – and it comes at a cost! 

If you want to learn some sneaky tricks to getting that slick home that you've always wanted, but without hiring a professional, come with us now as we give you our top tips! Some of them are simply common sense ways to streamline your life and let's be honest; we could all use some of that!

1. Make the bed every morning, as soon as you leap out of it! It's only a case of shaking and smoothing out the duvet, really, so it will take seconds!

2. Put dirty clothes in the laundry basket, as soon as you take them off. It's worth getting the whole household trained up to do this too, unless you like a game of hunt the sock!

3. Put clean laundry away as soon as it is dry. Don't leave it to pile up, as it will become a huge chore. Little and often is the key!

4. Clear hallways of excess shoes! Everybody only needs one pair in the hallway, so get all the others put away in their bedrooms or a storage cupboard.

5. Chuck out all your odd socks, like you've been meaning to! Who needs random socks that are waiting around for their partners to show back up?

6. Audit your accessories, so you can stop hunting for the few things you actually wear! If you haven't worn it in six months and there is no sentimental attachment, chuck it out!

7. Replace tatty hangers for modern ones! This will keep your clothes in better condition and look so much neater. Metal or wood are the most sustainable choices.

8. Get in the habit of tidying as you go. This is vital in your kitchen, where all the big messes occur! You need to train everybody else up to follow suit as well though!

9. Transfer all your digital camera pictures onto your hard drive. You've been meaning to do it, so sit down and spend five minutes actually getting it sorted!

10. Go through your spam inbox, while you're on your computer. Just a quick check to see if anything important has landed in there and you can delete everything else.

11. Delete your old voicemails from your mobile. You know they clog up your memory, so why are you leaving them there? What if your mailbox gets full?

12. Throw out old food from the fridge once a week. You can minimise wastage by implementing a date rotation system that sees about to expire food being placed at the front.

13. Check the food dates in your pantry and make sure anything with a short shelf life is used-up first and don't let everyone else dig to the back for the 'good stuff'.

14. Clear out the 'junk' drawer. Urgh. We all have one, but they get so full! Old batteries, elastic bands and junk mail can all go in the bin!

15. Clear out your wallet before you leave the house! Throw out receipts you don't need and loyalty cards you don't use and you'll feel instantly refreshed!

16. Chuck out old cosmetics that have long-passed their use-by dates! It's amazing how long some of us keep that tatty old mascara, but it could actually be bad for your health, not to mention the tidiness of the bathroom!

17. Shred old paperwork, once a week, so that your home office doesn't get overrun with clutter and rubbish. If you have animals, the shredded paper makes ideal bedding, or it can be used to get the fire going!

18. Sort through your coupons and see which ones are still in date! We all seem to collect and leave them on the fridge or a noticeboard, but if they've expired, they are just junk!

19. Tackle your recycling and do your part. It's so easy to just sort your rubbish into the right bins and it will make you feel really smug too. Perfect!

20. Finally, make an emergency contacts list and pop it on a noticeboard that everyone can access. Trust us, this WILL come in handy and help to make your home more organised!
