You read my mind, Nicki! I was going to ask this SAME thing today! I always have this great plan at the beginning of the week. I'm going to tackle one room a day (that doesn't seem as overwhelming as the whole house) and clean it top to bottom... well, then Monday goes by.. Tuesday... Wednesday... UGH!! Now it's Thursday and I haven't started MONDAY'S room!!! *sigh* You can't be the world's laziest cleaner... cause I think I am! LOL
What are everyone's favorite cleaning products? Maybe if I get some new stuff to try THAT will motivate me?! Ok... so I'm grasping... but still!!! LOL

I'll try to think of something!
One shortcut I do is use baby wipes on my swiffer and do the floors with that... also for dusting sometimes!
I don't know, I'm anal, always cleaning. I don't mind a mess (toys,e tc) but they have to be picked up before I go to bed.
well...i have tried to clean the house earlier in the day,but if never stays clean by time daddy gets home. so i try to get the big stuff done first....dishes,vaccum,laundry(load or two)...then about 30 minutes before joe gets home i run around the house and pick up toys,dishes from breakfast or lunch or snack time...so he thinks the house has been clean all day...HA HA...but that trick doesnt work on the weekends when he is home..LOL. Ryan is really content playing on the floor with Emily...or just watching her. sometimes i hold him while vaccuming or put him in his saucer while i clean up. i am not a neat freak,but i like to have a clean house....the type of house were i wont be embarrassed if someone stops by unannounced....but we have two kids and that is unrrealistic....so if it is kept up and doesnt have like old moldy sandwiches on the floor I am fine...LOL LOL

No tips here, I don't know, it just bugs me if I know it's not cleaned up, or at least straightened up. So I have to get up and clean it, no dishes in the sink or anything like that before I go to bed. I like waking up to a tidy house!
I wish I could even be a 1/4 like you Melissa. I am so horrible at house cleaning. I have good intentions but that is where it stops. I am almost out of wet swiffer cloths (only 1 left) but I can't use that any more for an excuse if I have baby wipes!
Colee, I would be embarrassed if someone stopped in. I just cannot, no matter how hard I try, keep the kitchen free of papers - from school, mail, just plain ol' junk!
Put me on the bad house keeper list.

My house is not spotless though I swear! Our bedroom looks a disaster! There are heaps and mounds of laundry. I've given up on the fact of ever being caught up on it. It is so impossible, our dryer is just way too slow, you have to run it two times at least and the washer dryer are outback so I only have like 2 hours after work to do it, cause I won't go out there in the dark...mosquitos and bugs and lizards OH MY! I hate bugs! My main obsession is the living room and the kitchen/dining area, I can't stand when it's messy.........wahhhhhh!!!!!!!
im the same way Melissa my bedroom has loads of laundry ever where but the down stairs needs to be spotless when you wlk in the door but with an almost 3yr old after i do something something new is there and bigger and messier i was cleaning the kitchen yesterday thats why im i just pop on and off my dog throws up in the hall way not in the back hall as im cleaning it grrrrr. so ALyssa go you cleaning thr kthcen im yup so sahe saw waht brownie did and went got a paper towel and wiped it up but then i saw her mess in the living room and tryed to explain about Kailey picking things up and putting them in her mouth etc. to make it short Kai went i nthe pigpen while i finished and played
I just put my baby on the floor near me while I clean, with a bunch of toys. Esp, measuring spoons, cups, pots, those are great fun, because they are more of a rarity to play with, he likes to play with odd bits of paper that he finds laying on the floor, sometimes I will toss down a piece of paper for him to crumple.
