  • just set small steps at a time. usually i'll tackle one room, dump everything that don't go in there in one box, all trash in another, and all laundry in the basket. then you can clean the room and just put the stuff away as you go. plus i make my kids help out and that is a major plus!!!

  • Some days, you need to take a day to do nothing but be lazy and sleep. It's your body's way of recovering. There is always tomorrow to clean. I usually do it all in little steps. Kitchen today, bathrooms tomorrow, etc.. etc...

    Rest, there is always tomorrow!!

  • I have ocd so that is my motivation. I also am a SAHM and its my job to keep up on the house while my husband works and I would never want him coming into a dirty house.

    Its become such a habit I just do it and get it done! Why wait it will still be there later and most likely much worse!

  • Turn on some rocking tunes I can hear through the whole house.

    That usually gets me going.
