 I am quite good at organizing and cleaning, but unfortunately due to my four young children, I don't always have the time during the day.  My husband andI try to keep up on chores through out the day, instead of waiting for someone else to do it!

LOL! Saw myself in each of your options for both the past and present. I voted "I have a great system that works for me, most of the time."

I'd like to improve on not spending so much money on cleaning products. I like the best of the best for my cleaning duties. I'd love to make my own cleaning products.

My strengths are cleaning bathrooms among all of my cleaning tasks (no matter how dirty the job is... I get it done in the right way) organization,
and prioritizing.

 I'm pretty organized, but I don't think it's perfect.  It's taken me a long time to realize that organizing is only the first step and it's not going to stay that way if you don't put it back where it goes every time. Now I'm trained but I have 4 others in this household that don't get it yet LOL. But I believe no one is perfect and we could all use pointers and advice from others that we haven't yet thought of.

I have to trick myself into cleaning.  If I think about it beforehand It is a chore. If I decide all the sudden, then I keep going until it is done.

I'm good at organizing things, but I want to find a way to keep up with the paper stuff that comes in..the receipts, bills, etc. I have a place to put them all but they still end up just cluttering the counter up. I end up not putting them away right away and then when they pile up, it just gets overwhelming. :/ But I love organizing and am good at it :)
