I know a disorderly house might not bother everyone, but truth be told, MY stress levels go UP when my house is a mess. But somewhere in there is the sweet spot of having a clean, fairly orderly house that inspires me to be at my best in other areas of life, without having to be obsessive about housekeeping.
And no, sadly for me these secrets are not  a team of housekeepers or professional organizers! I’m sharing my 4 housekeeping secrets today in a spring cleaning article, so head on over to The Decluttered Home to read about how we keep up with our home!


I think it’s funny because when I have friends over they ask me how I keep my house so clean.
I learned just a few years ago that tips 1 and 2 were the foundation of keeping a house clean. I’m not obsessive about a clean house because there’s no way I could take care of three boys, work and write a blog if I were! I’m more productive, much happier and all around everything seems more awesome when my house is clean and free of clutter.


The Inspired Room was voted Readers' Favorite Decorating Blog by Better Homes & Garden's magazine two years in a row, 2014 and 2015! I’ve considered having housekeepers someday, not for the every day stuff I can do myself, but just for some more major cleaning of showers and stuff I don’t like to do!
