31 Day Simplify Series :: the very best way to keep your home clean {day 10}

Simplify 300

What if I told you that I had one tip that would guarantee to keep your home clean?

Would you want to hear it?

Well, I do. It works for me and my friends. So I know it will work for you too.

Wanna know what it is?

Invite people to your home.

That’s it.

Imagine with me:
you get a text from your husband that he invited a couple people over for dinner and they’ll be there in 30 minutes. He’s bringing dinner with him, so you don’t have to do anything but be there. Your eyes start scanning the room…toys scattered, pillows on the floor, crumbs under the table, and good gracious you forgot to put the lunch dishes away (from the past 3 days).

What do you think you’re going to be doing in the next 30 minutes?
Cleaning like a mad woman, that’s what.

So why not plan for that to happen instead of being taken by surprise? This is one of the easiest ways I motivate myself to clean.  And hey, when you use this tip, you get TWO great things for the price of ONE: a clean house and the opportunity to practice hospitality!
