The word dominating my thoughts this week is Tidy-Up.
Not an exiting word I grant you ..but oh how good I feel when it is done.
My kids are back at school I’m sad to say (we have had a lovely summer and I hope you have too and the house is a proper mess.
Oh it may look okay on the surface, but actually their are piles of random books, missing games parts, football cones strewn all over the garden and cupboards and bedroom floors in disarray.
An untidy home never looks great and the way to a lovely home (particularly one a budget) is to keep it clean, tidy and decluttered.
Hard to face?
I know the feeling but I have a great little tidy up trick to ease the process.
Instagram the mess.
And yes I do know how odd that sounds
I take my photo, upload it to IG and feel the shame. Then I work super fast to tidy that area and instagram the result. I got lots of ‘oohs and aahs’ and ‘doesn’t it look goods’ which makes me feel great. Plus I get to see what a huge difference my tidy up has made and am inspired to do more.
Simple but it works.
What tidy up motivator do you use?
Tidy -Up is most definitely my word of the week
