Calling the Domestically Challenged, the Frustrated, and the Fed Up~
If I’ve learned one thing from the countless people who send me emails and comments are how much most moms out there want a clean and clutter free home.
What I also know is that many of those same moms struggle with figuring out a few things:
1. They don’t know where to start.
2. They don’t know how to get their family involved.
3. They don’t know how to pry dad off the couch and get him motivated to pitch in.
4. She struggles with finding the words to express how she feels about her messy home so that her family learns to respect her wishes.
5. Wishes there was a system out there to help her.

The Rescue Your Messy Home Challenge
Does That And A Whole Lot More!
But here’s the question I have for you? How much do you want it? What are you willing to do to rescue your home once and for all?
You see taking your home from messy to magnificent is going to take some sacrifice. Some little sacrifices to really big sacrifices that will really pull at your heart and soul. Every day you’ll make decisions that will either move closer to your goal or further away.
In my career as a professional cleaner, I’ve met all sorts of people. Some of the folks we cleaned for liked to pick up along the way, tidy up each day, do a little something to keep their home cleaned, and others wouldn’t even pick up their underwear until we showed up to clean the house.
You could see a distinct difference in the quality of not only their homes but of their lives too. The houses that stayed relatively clean and organized between our regular cleanings seemed to function more smoothly.
There were less screaming matches because someone couldn’t find something, less stress because things had their proper place and less drama because mom didn’t forget to wash the red shirt for “Red Shirt Day” at school. Those homes seemed to purr along nicely with a calm and serene feel.
And, I know this is what you want for your home too!
The good news is it’s absolutely possible for you to create this environment for your home even if you see yourself as somehow domestically challenged.
Taking your home from where it is to where you want it to be is a process. Some of the habits you’ll implement right away, and some will take you more time to complete. You do the challenge at your own pace so your in control of the process the entire time. These habits are about changing your behavior and building new skills. It starts easy and builds up from there, tackling the harder changes further into the process. Eventually, you’ll have completed all twelve habits and will have transformed your home.
