Real talk, friends. Cleaning is NOT my gift. I loathe it. Hate it. Avoid it all costs. And in the process, I drive the hubs a bit crazy. Now, I promise, I’m not a slob. More like I let laundry take over our bedroom and have piles of clutter. Oh, and I can’t close a drawer or cabinet all the way to save my life. BUT…the great news is that I have some AMAZING friends who have tons of quick, easy ideas for organizing and cleaning your home. This year, I’m decluttering with the help of my friends so I thought I’d let you in on all the trade secrets too!
The Cleaning Ninja
First up, my friend Courtenay from The Creekline House has JUST released a book called the Cleaning Ninja! Its amazing. So many useful tips and strategies for cleaning and KEEPING your home clean. In addition to being a great book, my kids saw it and thought she literally meant for them to be cleaning ninjas. So now they clean super fast and use a lot of “hi-ya’s.” Seriously, that alone is worth the cost of the book. Get more info on the book and buy it here (affiliate link).
Bite Size Organize
Have I mentioned how talented my friends are? Well, my bloggy buddy, Melissa from The Happier Homemaker also just released a book called Bite Size Organize. She shows you:
- How to spend less time doing the chores you hate.
- How develop habits to dramatically transform your home and your life.
- How to tackle the problem areas of your home where clutter collects. (YES, this is what I need!!)
