I find myself being so unmotivated to do all the projects in my house- ok mainly the every day standard "projects" for me.  You know them- cleaning, laundry, dishes, organizing.  I feel so lazy sometimes.  By the time I get off work and drive across town to get home (while being stuck in traffic on the freeway all the time), pick up the kids, cook dinner, sitting down to eat, and then it seems like it is time for bed.  It seems like there is never enough time. 

I follow Penniless Parenting's Blog.  Recently she posted a post with her kitchen.  It looks so tidy, little and cute!  I have a bigger home than she does, but I can never keep it up to par.  After viewing her post here, I think that gave me a lot of motivation to get working on organizing and tidying up.  If she can do it in a 575 sq ft apartment, then I surely can do it in a 1690 sq ft home!  It is time to really get decluttering and going through things.  I find myself going in phases with the whole decluttering situation.  One week I am so gung ho about getting my bootay in gear and working on it, and then the next I just don't want to do anything.  I really need to get going on it though.  :) 

If you haven't check out Penniless Parenting before, check her out.  No, she isn't paying me anything or exchanging anything for me "advertising" about her blog.  I genuinely like her blog and think she has some great ideas at times. 

Another blog that I like to frequent is Frugal Babe.  She talks a lot about decluttering in her blog recently, and I like some of the ideas she suggests.  If you haven't checked her out before, here it is:

Sassy here needs to work on keeping motivated on the decluttering and tidying up aspects of having a home.  I need to stick with it :)

  1. Thanks for the nice words. In all honesty, I am not a neat person in any way, shape, or form. My husband is and he does most of the tidying up around here.
    Not that I don't clean, but yea.
    I did the decluttering though, so I get partial credit. Decluttering makes it so much easier to take care of your home. When there are fewer things and you have a place for each thing, cleaning up is a breeze (so long as baby lets you put him down).
