  • I play my CD's really loud. My kids hate it when they see me reach for the CD's, they know it's cleaning time!!

  • SO won't come in if it's not clean. If he doesn't come in then I don't get sex which means I keep it clean!

  • I made a chart and broke down the household chores so I only have to do about 20-30 minutes of cleaning a day after my daughter goes to bed. I don't let myself sit down or turn on the TV until I finish my list of chores.

  • Put the music on, clean the easiest room, for me the laundry room, 15 minutes. Then do the spare bedroom and the office. By then I am on a roll and challenge myself to get it all cleaned in 2 hrs. When it is done it feels so good! Happy cleaning.......

  • I call and invite someone over to have coffee. Then I hurry and clean before they get there.
