how can I get more motivated to clean my house?

Its not really bad messy I just have no energy and have a hard time getting motivated to do jobs like sorting all our books onto a shelf, or mopping the kitchen floor. I also have a hard time working on it every day, but it depresses me when it gets messy. How does everyone else manage to keep things clean?

  • I get overwhelmed if I don't have a list for everything. I do all the basics daily and have one room i really work on each day of the week and save closets and washing curtains and bedding for weekends. My daughter is 4 and already loves lists and chore charts.

  • My motivation for cleaning is watching the home and garden or decoration shows on cable. Seeing how easily they can make changes motivates me to try and do some cleaning and decorating of my own. Also while cleaning I do listen to music sometimes. Although you need to give yourself that extra push once in awhile seeing the end results are just so worth it!
