Create A Schedule

Create a detailed weekly schedule of household

tasks like laundry and cleaning. Break cleaning

up into smaller tasks like by room. So you might

clean the bathroom on Wednesday and Saturday,

clean the bedroom on Tuesday and Sunday, and

the living room, halls and stairs every Thursday

and Monday. Clean your kitchen up weekly then

spend a few minutes each day on it.

Stock Up On Cleaning Supplies

Remember when you are making your weekly, bi-

weekly, or monthly trip to the grocery store, make

sure to add cleaning supplies to your list. Look

for items that are on sale, such as paper towels,

bleach wipes, all purpose cleanser and window

spray. Using coupons is a real easy way to save.

Make sure you save your fliers, or you can check

online for great deals.

Throw Out Your Garbage

This may seem obvious, but when you are on the

go sometimes you can forget this simple task.

What’s not so simple about leaving garbage out

is the risk of attracting bugs, especially roaches.

Make it a routine to clean out all the garbage in

your area, and if you live with a room mate remind

them when you are doing it. You will feel better

knowing your place is garbage and bug free.

Relax

Once your place is tidy, try to do a little bit each and

every day to keep things in order. Try playing some

music to help it go by fast. Make sure it stays that

way. Your weekends will be free for study, lounge,

or go out to a party, your choice!

HOTEL EXTRAS

Many people that rent hotel rooms are unaware

about the many great extras that can be provided.

Sometimes, you have to ask for them. Here is

a helpful list of things that can be added to

your stay.

Student Discounts

You are a student, so take advantage of this fact!

Everyone loves student business. Inquire about

the cost of the room and if they offer any student

discounts.

In-Room Fridge And Microwave

Ask them before you make a reservation if your

room has a microwave. Most hotels also offer ice

from an ice machine located in the hallway. Also

a fridge is another free addition you could ask for.

Parking

Hotels can sometimes charge as high as $15 for

parking. Ask if they can waive the fee, or, if their

parking is free.

Check In / Out Times

Nothing is ever set in stone. Ask if you can have

a later check in or out time if needed. Hotels want

your business, they will most likely accommodate

your schedule.

Recreational Facilities

Make sure you ask if there are any recreational

facilities available that you may have interest in.
