And speaking of cleaning, here are a few sites/blogs that I use as inspiration to kick start my cleaning; I hope you find inspiration from each also.
FlyLady - this blog is perfect for me, though I did change a few of he days/rooms to fit my needs. Same goes for the routines, but it works for me and that's all that counts. So feel free to change the detailed cleaning lists and daily routines to fit you/your style and your home.
How Does She? - this blog is chalk full of goodies and entertaining reading. There are entries on running a household, baking, freebies, coupons, giveaways, oh, just all kinds of goodness. Check it out.
Housekeeping - this site is my go to when I need to know how to get rid of those pesky ants that "come home" for winter; or the best tools to use; uses for vinegar, how to get out stains, etc.
The Christian HomeKeeper Network - I love this site for all the information it contains; Go browse and enjoy.
So many ideas, so much inspiration; I am ready to get down and clean (when I get home . . . if I'm not too tired. . .); I'll be crossing off my list.!
