Doesn't Work For Me
Happy Wednesday to you! It's time once again to post another WFMW tip! Shannon has asked us to post things that do NOT work for us!
De-Cluttering My House
My house is cluttered. I have toys stacked in piles in various rooms, bookshelves overflowing with too many books (although I'm not sure you can ever have too many books), I have craft supplies coming out of my ears and in a jumbled mess in about 3 rooms of the house, my closets are crammed full of clothes that either need to be thrown away or given away because I no longer wear them. The list goes on and on!
After trying to keep up with the housework and trying to stay motivated by following the advice of Flylady (can I just say my email box became too cluttered with those reminders), I finally broke down and hired a cleaning team to come in twice a month to do the deep cleaning. The ladies do a nice job of that but I find myself cleaning for the cleaning people and my house is still cluttered!
I've thought of having a big purge and selling off stuff at a garage sale and then donating the rest, but who has time for that?! So, my house still remains cluttered.
Any advice for me?
De-cluttering my house does NOT work for me. To find out what doesn't work for others, be sure to check out the other links at Shannon's, the creator of Works-For-Me Wednesday!
