I really don't need motivation - I like order
I will clean when I am stressed or grieving. Compulsive cleaning to regain order or have a sense of control when My life is out of control. When my husband was hospitalized I spent any free time at home after visiting hours frantically cleaning.

Stress is my biggest motivator. When I am under a lot of stress at work I have to come home to a neat orderly house. I need to have a place of refuge from the chaos that I endure at work. My place of refuge must be clean and organized, and bright and cheerful and cozy. Only then can I deal with a stressful work environment.

On my way today.
Karen

I also clean when I'm angry, but my biggest motivator is people coming over. My house is generally neat, but when someone is coming over, it suddenly looks like a landfill. I notice every speck of dust, and I make a mad dash to clean in places they probably wouldn't even notice.

I hate absolutely hate the process, but I absolutely love having a clean house soooo...I clean the house. Generally I try to do one thing each day so that I'm not stuck spending an entire day doing it. Little things take less time, and let me keep up.

The motivation to clean my house changes on any given day .... it might be friends are coming over or I use it as a form of exercise or sometimes, it comes down to forcing discipline on myself to not give in to depression.

My husband and I built our house ourselves - yep with our own two hands - I am very proud of that accomplishment and treat it as such. That means I try to keep it neat and clean all the time, but occasionally things can get a little cluttered which motivates me even more to get busy and get things reorganized.

I just prefer a neat and clean environment, though I do have a clutter zone that is always horrible. I don't think anything can motivate me to stay on top of that area!

when I have people coming over, I'll clean up.
I'm not messy ordinarily, but just to sweep up and tidy things a bit - it takes someone coming over to drive me to do that.

nothing motivates me to clean my house. However, no clean underwear will make me do laundry, no clean dishes will make me wash dishes, but the rest? Too much trouble.

@DMJAKES -- I've had that feeling before too. I'd rather help someone else clean up their mess than to clean my house where I'm bored of cleaning the same old things. It's almost like a challenge to me to see how nice I can make things look for them. The sad part is that it is never a cure for the person you are doing it for. There is usually a lot more to their story than meets the eye (or dust rag).

Keep a sense of humor. Remember, laughing burns calories too!

Laugh until it hurts! It's one of the few things in life that's still free!!

Any effort is better than no effort!

@2BFIT -- I agree, those hoarders shows do the same for me -- make me want to throw things out. But also, I agree with most of you that company coming over makes me clean things that are usually set aside any other day of the week. I clean faster and more efficiently too, especially when I know that the person coming over has one of those "Home and Garden" houses (mine is far from). I even deep clean if I know a repair person is coming over -- wouldn't want them thinking the worst either, even though they've probably seen it ALL! :-)

I once was told this by a good friend, and I've now adopted as my own:

"If you are coming to see my house, make an appointment so I can make it look it's best. If you are coming to visit me, just drop by anytime!"

I live in a small house, so it's much easier to KEEP it clean than to try to catch up if I get behind. I also have a close relative who's a hoarder, and every time I go over there I get the "itch" to deep clean something....kind of sad.

Company and/ or knowing that there will be pictures taken.

Weird but I get motivated to get to cleaning when I watch shows like Hoarders on TLC (I think). It makes me feel sick and gets me to throwing stuff out..... Hmmmm, maybe I should dvr a few episodes.

Honestly the biggest motivation comes when I know someone is coming to visit...which is often.
There is also a certain level of order that I need to be at my best so when I see things needed to be done, I do them. It works best to makes some time for it daily.
Being appreciative of having a house to clean makes it easy. emoticon

I like a clean house too, but not the cleaning part.

If you focus on results, you will never change. If you focus on change, you will get results.

I like a clean house, but do more deep cleaning when company is coming.
