Today I’m cleaning.
I much prefer to decorate than to clean, but unfortunately, it has to be done. Once my house is decorated pretty much the way I want it, I actually keep a very clean, organized home. But when it’s in transition, like it is right now….. not so much. Whenever I’m feeling particularly unmotivated, I normally spend some time checking out blogs and websites devoted to cleaning and organizing. I also try to catch an episode of Clean House, Hoarders, or How Clean is Your House. Those shows could motivate anyone to get off their butt and clean!
These are some of my favourite sites that inspire me to clean and organize:
Get Organized! : this is a fantastic blog, full of helpful articles to help you gain control of your home and life.
