if only I could afford a maid.

Can someone please teach me how to be neat and tidy all of the time? Please? I would definitely say that since I've been married I'm WAYYYY better at being clean then when I was un-married and living at home. I just hate that when I look around my house and see all of the things that are left out on counters or on the floor...they're mine. Any ideas? Tips? I need help.


  1. It's impossible to be neat and tidy all the time. Especially when you are both working and going to school. I'm yet to live in a house that is neat and tidy. Just once a week commit to cleaning up the cluter. Or twice a week if you can.

  2. this is what I do. Whenever you take something off or put something down, just put it where you got it from. it seems simple and stupid. But, you are going to put it somewhere so you might as well just put it where you got it! that way stuff doesn't start to pile up! i'm a neat freak and that's how I do it. and I never go to bed with dishes in the sink or clothes on the floor or books lying around. right before I got to bed I clean everything up so I wake up to a clean house!
