  • There's no motivation for me, lol, it's one of those things I have to MAKE myself do. I try to stay on top of things as much as I can and set one day a week to the DEEP cleaning, dusting and scrubbing and I stick to it. Good Luck!!

  • I slowly turn back away from Cafemom.... Turn off the computer, & turn on my ipod & dance around until its done. =)

  • LOUD music helps! and for the big cleaning days I do it first thing in the a.m. then reward myself with a little shopping! lol!

  • I lack motivation too! I force myself to step away from the computer, turn some music on and get it done! Just knowing that if I do not do it, it will become worse and I will have to spend even more time on it helps me focus!!! Good Luck!

  • I always let my girls help me they love it even my toddler she takes a wet rag and just starts wiping lol we turn on some of our favorite music and dance around and act silly it's a good way to get the cleaning done you even get a little cardio in at the same time. And I found that as the girls get older the more help they really are which takes some of the time off my cleaning. :)

  • Do not turn off the computer until you visit Flylady.

    Real motivation is company coming.

  • I LOVE to clean. My husband says it must be my hobby because he has never seen anyone do it so much and enjoy it! I love the feeling and smell of a clean house and I take pride in the fact that my house is always clean! I just crank the music and get busy!
