I can’t tell you all the toys I’ve purchased that sit un-played with just hours after they’ve been opened.

Tips to Keep Your Home Clean When You’re The Worst Cleaner

I have to admit, I am a terrible cleaner. I “don’t have the eye” as my sister mentioned to me before. That’s the truth really. To be a great cleaner, you have to have an eye for the details.

I get overwhelmed with small tasks, and my mind goes off into a place of creativity, where I’m not even seeing what I’m doing. As the women of the house, I’m in charge of cleaning, and my husband is a better cleaner than me. Shoot. So, I’ve learned to put my mind to work and clean better. I just don’t even notice things some other “cleaner” people do. On the other hand, I hate clutter and have a very minimal style. I can clean up clutter, and I like everything to be…
