After my post Tips for a Tidy Home , I had a lot of people contact me letting me know they’ve been applying some of those tips to their home with great success!!

It is not as difficult as it may seem to keep a home that is well organized, tidy and clean. Just remember…. it will not happen overnight . Unfortunately there is no way to avoid housework. But you can keep your house clean and tidy if you just get organized.

Don Aslett, America’s #1 Cleaning Expert and founder of one of the country’s largest cleaning firms, Varsity Contractors, is one of my new sponsors.

Aslett has written over 40 books and sold millions on cleaning topics, including
Clutter’s Last stand
“the book that convinces you to declutter.” With a nonstop sense of humor and hundreds of hilarious illustrations, it lays out the case for dejunking, dramatically demonstrating how clutter invades and affects every area of our homes and lives.

and Do I Dust or Vacuum First?Don uses an entertaining Q&A format to provide quick and easy answers to the most frequently asked questions about housecleaning. With Don’s practical, inexpensive solutions, you’ll maximize your energy and minimize your efforts—and get any job anywhere done in half the time. You’ll also learn strategies to prevent housework and earn more free time for yourself. So, Do I dust or vacuum first? I guess you’ll have to read the book to find out!

Oh yeah……….I mentioned a GIVEAWAY didn’t I?!
