A Clean House Is A Sign Of A Broken Computer

The title of this post is on a metal sign that I received for Christmas from my nieces. I really like that saying. And I have to admit, it does fit me... somewhat. I haven't hung it up yet because I can't decide if I want to hang it in my kitchen or above my computer. I guess it could work either place.

For me, when it comes to organizing and cleaning, I'll be the first to admit that I need some work in this area. I don't have a filthy house but I don't enjoy cleaning. I do like to have things organized. I wish I had the skill of some organizers but I do my best with what I have for now.

There are two shows that I really enjoy watching. I think I watch them to get a glimpse into the life of others as well as find out tips and decorating ideas.

How Clean Is Your House - I love Kim and Aggie. They are a blast to watch and they have great cleaning tips. Most of their tips consist of using things that are already in your home. You can search for the show on Youtube and find many and you can visit the website for some cleaning tips. Click here for the website.

Hoarders - This show takes a look into the lives of people who have an inability to part with their belongings. It's a very interesting show. They have therapists that come in and work with the person and their family to teach them how to let go of material things. You can watch episodes on the website by clicking here.

I love, love, love Real Simple! They have so much information on their website. You can find:
  • Organizing Tips
  • Cleaning Tips
  • Decorating Tips
  • Home Improvement
  • Gardening
  • New Uses for Old Things
  • Beauty and Fashion
  • Recipes
  • and so much more

Click here to visit the Real Simple website.

My mother is a bit of a hoarder in some ways (Bless her heart). I think that is why I don't like clutter in my home. I tend not to keep anything that hasn't been used in a year or that I have no attachment to. Plus, my home just is not big enough to keep everything.

When I watch these shows and visit these sites, it makes me want to get up off my boohiney and clean or organize something. They truly are an inspiration!
