  1. These are great points, Rebekah! I am glad I am not the only one who can’t relax when my house is not clean. I think the inviting people over is a great idea! I never see my sons help me so fast until I tell them we have people coming over! Thanks for sharing with #SocialButterflySunday! Hope to see you link up again this week 🙂

  2. Ooh! Nothing motivates me more than people coming over! 😉 I purposefully plan my kids’ birthday parties and holiday gatherings to motivate me to do my spring/quarterly cleaning.

  3. I say amen to all of these tips! Many of which I have used to motivate me. ESPECIALLY the cleaning when guests are coming over. lol.

    I liked your idea of just starting sweeping. That is a new one for me, but I can see its effectiveness. 🙂

    Thanks so much for sharing!

  4. We try to have friends over often so I stay motivated to keep the house clean. Projects also work. I started painting some rooms a few weeks ago and now I have started going room to room cleaning out clutter and washing windows/ baseboards. It feels so good to feel like each room has been turned inside out.

  5. These are great tips! Something that helps me is by making a list on one of my mom groups and crossing it off as I get things done or posting before and after pictures. The timer Iove to do this myself I call it 30 minute dash set the timer for 30 minutes and see how much I can get done.
