  • I need help on this one too. I hate cleaning, and never seem to have the motivation/energy.

  • Listen to upbeat music, or I don't clean!LOL I didn't clean the last few days and my DH noticed so he cleaned last night. Now when little messes happen I can clean them! LOL I hate not being motivated, especially when your always cleaning the place so you don't see the point! EGH! Anyways listen to some music!!! Crank up the volume!!!! LOL

  • put on some music really loud. tell yourself that after a room is done, or after an hour of cleaning you get to take a 10 min break...i usually call a girlfriend and talk for a few mins. or have a cup of coffee...

  • I didn't really clean today, but I have laundry to put away I am going to do that during real housewives.

    I will clean the rest of the house tomorrow.

  • I love listening to music, only I can't turn it up during the day..... my hubby works nights and sleeps during the day. Anything else?

    Answer by NicMorgan at 8:54 PM on Apr. 21, 2009

  • I try to tackle one thing a day, dusting one day, vacuming the next, sweeping and mopping, the laundry on thursday and friday. The only room I HATE to clean is the kitchen. But hubby and the big kids usually clean up since i do most the cooking. Even when its just me and hubby and the little ones hubby is real good about helping.
    I also like to make little list, not that i always get to them, but it at least reminds me LOL Oh and turning off the internet and unplugging the computers helps me a lot too! I try not to sign on until my house work for the day is done.
