    I hate to clean, I used to find I would get very overwhelmed and quit. I read an article a few years ago (probably when I should have been cleaning) that said to do one room at a time, don't vacuum your entire house, just do the living room. Since reading this I find cleaning is much less overhwelming and I have a complete sense of accomplishment because after a few minutes of work, I can see actual progress in one room. If I get sidetracked or have to do something else it's ok because at least one room got cleaned.

Hope this helps emoticon

    I get overwhelmed whenever there is a lot of cleaning to do. I am currently reading a book called "Organizing from the Inside Out". I hope this helps.

    I have to do this, too. I can find a hundred things to do other than housework, especially if it's outdoors. Best of luck & blessings to you. Pam

    I'm working on my housecleaning habits as well. Yesterday I started with laundry and decluttering my room.
