  • Yours is probably clean compared to mine; I work seven days a week and can't be bothered with more than the basics. Here's the good news...no one ever had "World's Best Housekeeper" on her grave.

    "Hot mess?" Is something on fire? (I'm old, I don't get this newfangled talk!)

  • i always had the opinion that it's more important to be sane than to have my house spotless - and it was always far from that. occasionally it would get clean when i was expecting company, but more often when the babysitter got bored late at night, or my friend would come over and help me with a bottle of wine in the mix. i'm still pretty sloppy although much better than i used to be. my house would be a disaster if it weren't for my husband.

  • Ok I am Mrs.Fix it.... so i feel the need to give you advice on how to help your situation. 1. Can you get hubbys help? 2. Can you clean 1 room a day? 3. On a off day can you de-clutter/ re-organize, throw away stuff. it will help! The less stuff you have the better 4. Get large baskets & Label however you seperate clothes. Try to get family to put them in the dirty clothes properly (haha!)..5. Make cleaning a game for your son..6. Have a "throw" basket in every room. Easy clean up & when u have more time u return it where it should be.. 7. Little bins for kids toys so its easy for him to clean up. Keep one in the living room & occasionally emty it out in his room. Put some toys up & trade them occasionaly. he will have "like new toys again".
    Having a clean house is not #1.. But I know for me, i feel better, sleep better & am in a better mood if the house is clean. it also stays cooler.. Do what makes you OK! *HUGS*

  • Throw everything away. The less there is the less you have to clean. I just pretend to like the "minamilist" look.
