Confession ( I’m not perfect) :)
My living room, the movies are jacked up and check out my little clutter corner
Clutter on my hutch
Eek look under my sink
I am not perfect at cleaning my house, far from it actually. As a child i was never taught the importance of keeping a clean and organized house, I lived with my mother and stepfather from the age of about 14 to 17, and looking back now i realize how nasty their house was, a fact that i was oblivious to at the time. The walls were yellow from cigarette smoke, ashtrays were over flowing, to the point that there were cigarette buts all over the tables and in the floors, cock roaches were awful, the counters had (no exaggeration) not been wiped off for years, the refrigerator was filled with rotten food and meat, and my mother and step father would hide food under their bed so that i couldn’t have any, so the mice were really bad as well. That is what i lived in, so when i met and moved in with Darrell, he was more than a little shocked at what i thought was clean. Over the years since, it has been an ongoing battle with myself just to notice things that others automatically notice. Things like dusting, organizing toys and papers, and i am awful about throwing useless items under my kitchen counter. I have came very far from what i used to consider clean, but I still have to put myself in check about certain things. I hate that i was not raised to care about things like toilet paper rolls, you hear people debating about whether the toilet paper should hang over or under, and i dont even care if its on a holder (but i want to care). Now dont get me wrong my house is not filthy or even dirty for that matter, but i wish i was the way most women are, most women are perfectionists at keeping their houses clean, and it just comes so naturally to them, i envy that. But anyway if yawl have any ideas on how to cut back on clutter (we live in a 2 bedroom house with 3 kids) or have any cleaning tips and tricks, that would be awesome.
