Give Me Five tips and tricks for keeping your house clean and clutter free.

I have a friend who keeps a very clean house. It seems sometimes that she's overly anal about house cleaning, but I always enjoy how clean and tidy things are when I visit her and appreciate all the hard work she does-everyday-to keep it looking clean. I am NOT a very good housekeeper. I get overwhelmed by the number of tasks and tend to just ignore them until they are full on projects that then take me all weekend long to get done. Like now, I've been cleaning house all weekend! Now that it's all clean (and beautiful, I might add, come back in a couple of days for pictures!), I'd like to keep it that way, maybe you can tell me how you keep up with yours! Do you have a cleaning schedule or just clean everything in the house every time? Help!

1. Create a house cleaning schedule.
2. Get clutter free forever.
3. Gather your cleaning supplies.
4. Get moving with some music that will keep you on the go.
5. Get help, Rome was not built (or cleaned) in a day!

Mine is up! Sorry it's been so long since I've participated. I've barely been blogging at all... :-(

I love to clean with music playing! Helps to keep my mind off the boring task at hand!
