I did a deep clean of my house almost a month ago. I admit it was not a pretty sight. I decluttered and got rid of alot of stuff. The trash pile outside was well, pretty intense. My house looked almost like an episode of horders and admitting I had a bit of a push to clean it up, and while I am not going to go into detail about the push I will tell you that it took me a whole week of busting my arse to get it done and it felt good. While cleaning the mounds of clothes and toys that were laying on my and the kids rooms floor I found a few surprizes, the vaccume got a nice work out as well. My kids just dont want to help out, it makes me so mad, they know what is expected, they know they have to do it and yet they are Lazy! It also does not help that my friend has been spending alot of time here with her kids and they are not the cleanest kids either. They trash my house and I spend hours re doing it. I just feel like every time I turn around my house is a mess, and I am always keeping up with it. SO I ask you ladies, what kind of cleaning routines do you have? what works for you? I need some help.
