Holiday cleaning tip



Remember how messy my house was last week? How full of clutter, and not Kurt-friendly? I didn't clean it. It just got messier and messier until it started driving me crazy. But every time I thought about cleaning it up I'd get overwhelmed, and go take a nap to recover.

Then yesterday I read this post, from a blog I follow called Not So Idle Hands. In it, she unlocked the secret to getting started. Go read her post. I'll just wait right here.

Ok, see? So very do able. And it worked! 5 times yesterday I put her method to good use. And I got the whole place clean! Well, except my craft area. But the living spaces are picked up, organized, and even vaccuumed. Kurt was so surprised! When he got home he just walked in circles, with his eyes open really big. And for the first time in over a week he spent more than 5 minutes in the front room- and it didn't stress him out. I am such a good wife.

I must say that I like this method. You could also try my method. It's called commercial cleaning. If you're involved in a really good show but the house is messy just clean as hard as you can and as fast as you can on commercials. Yes I am that lazy but it works. I may try your method tonight with the kids.

Good job trying to please your man with a clean home. It feels good to make him happy doesn't it?

that is a really good idea. I'm sure I'll need to use it as I start to wrap gifts and things like that. Also, I would love the commercial idea Nikki, but we don't have cable...
