Does anyone hate cleaning as much as I do? I seriously doubt it. When I got my own room, my college roommate said that she would come over and clean when she saw the dust coming out from under my door!
I have a caseworker that has been working with me for a year on cleaning a one bedroom apartment. I was failing my Housing Authority Inspections every year and always had to have my place reinspected. I am doing better about clutter. God has really put it on my heart that this is not good. But, I have 2 generations of hoarding before me. It is hard. I know that when my animals feel deprived of food, which I assure you they are not, they will eat and eat…I finally decided to just keep their bowls filled all the time, now it is not so much of a problem. I am the same way about books, clothes, etc. Rather than washing things, I would buy new. Smile!! I had 2 bags (count them) of underwear alone. I have gotten rid of so much! It still is not great but it is better.
My friend told me about flylady.com. It is a good place to get help with tackling your place. It encourages you to do it in baby steps. My problem was that I was so overwhelmed that I did not even know where to start. So, my caseworker had me start with maybe a quarter of a room. It was so much more doable.
