My method of retaining at least partial sanity is to do at least these four things every day. None of them take very long at all, but instantly make the house feel, at the very least, tidy.
- Make the bed.
- Clear the counters and table of dirty dishes and clutter.
- Sweep the floors.
- Straighten the cushions on the couch.
