Leave the room a little cleaner or neater than when you arrived. I know that sounds difficult and a little condescending, but it’s really not. In fact. this is easy to do. Put one thing away. Move one thing. Simple.
While chatting on the phone, I put away laundry, and when walking from one room to another, I try to grab one or two things to bring with me.
Make sure not to waste a movement. I can always find something that needs picked up or placed back where it goes.
If you have a big family, do a load of laundry every day. Don’t let it pile up until it is too overwhelming. You can also follow FlyLady’s system of washing each load and then immediately drying it and putting it away
