I'm in the process of reading Magical Housekeeping by Tess Whitehurst and it's really good so far.
I tend to have trouble with cleaning. I'm just not organized or tidy in general and cleaning makes me completely freak out.
I tried the FlyLady book and website, but it's got a seriously Christian vibe to it which I find really unhelpful, and something about the tone really grates on my nerves.
And then I managed to snag a copy of Magical Housekeeping at a librarian conference earlier this summer, and it's a way better read. It equates cleaning your living space with cleansing your spirit, which isn't exactly a new concept, but I love the way she expresses it. There's no condescension or sappiness; it's very straightforward.
And I love books that remind me that everyday acts can be deeply spiritual. Anyone else read a book lately that they love?
