From Clutter & Chaos ~ To Clean & Calm

                     Simple Housekeeping Tips ... for every room in your HOME.

Clutter.  NO.  Clean & calm. YES!

I am all about enjoying my home...
& bottom line, I cannot enjoy it when it's upside-down!
Furthermore, I want my husband to enjoy HIS home, being able to relax in a pleasant place after a long, hard day's work.
Even our children thrive in an atmosphere that's clean & tidy.

I am also all about being efficient - finding the best possible way to accomplish any task.

If there were ever 2 statements that fit me to a 'T', it's these:

1)  Work smarter, not harder!

2)  A place for everything & everything in it's place!

Just making these statements cause me to happy dance...
& yes, these are words that I live by.
I've got this house-cleaning thing down to a science.;)

I've implemented a cleaning routine for our family... a system that's simple & works perfectly in our household.
Over the next few blogs, I'll share our cleaning routine, room by room.

If you are feeling overwhelmed with keeping things clean & organized, hopefully you'll see some ideas here that you can implement at your house.
You can take control of your clutter & ultimately return the order to your home!

Keep in mind, as we are working diligently in our home, not to concentrate on the particular tasks, such as the vacuuming or the dishwashing, the mundane household duties ... but rather on performing each task as a labor of love & service.  Col. 3:23 reminds us that whatsoever we do, do it heartily as unto the Lord.

Home, the spot of earth supremely blest~
A dearer, sweeter spot than all the rest.
