  1. Total time cleaning and decluttering in this video was 1 hour and 50 minutes. I was interrupted by Owen twice, so I had to take breaks and then jump back in.

    1. Yeah it must be real dirt and grub. There is no way I could clean my kitchen and den that fast much less my whole house

    2. This is my problem.That would take me 5 weeks. Everything I do seems to take 5 times as long as it should or would others. I couldn’t even finish dishes in an hour and a half. Doing all that in that time is absolutely mind-blowing to me. It’s no wonder I don’t do anything – if something that should take 20 minutes is going to take an hour and a half, who would want to do it?!

    3. Can you upload a vid with an hour long cleaning not sped up. …or edited for the most part. That would be cool. I can have it on in the background and clean alongside lol. Great video btw!

    4. Was watching to just to get the motivation to clean my room but now I’m subscribed because that baseboard trick lol.

    5. Love u

  2. Loved this for all of it’s motivational aspects ❤❤❤

  3. Really wholesome content 🙂 liked and subbed

  4. Bro this is the only relatable house clean video.

  5. We have the same tricycle as you guys. For us it always seems in the way when it’s not being used! Is there a special place that yours gets stored? We don’t have a garage…

  6. I like your style and enthusiasm

  7. I love it! Thank you!

  8. Thank you. I like your video. I like the fact that you asked the question, “Why do you want a clean(er) house?” I appreciate the #1 Tip: POSITIVE Framing. I also like the tip about trying new hacks and making cleaning fun. I relate to the ideas that cleaning makes you feel better, and that the more you do it the better you get at it. In other words: Practice makes better. Finally I relate to the interview about perfection actually being fear, and you are allowed to be here without being perfect, even without doing anything. You are allowed to just be. I have saved this video. I will watch this video again. I’m subscribing to your channel. Thanks again for being here. Thanks for doing your videos. Yahweh bless you. John 3.

  9. You have an amazing voice!

  10. No body:

    All the Virgos that are watching: 👌

    1. Lol👍🏻

  11. You don’t know how much it is gonna help me..
    Thank you♥♥♥♥

  12. …That perfectionism bit made me tear up. I needed to hear that. Thanks!

  13. What you said in the first minute of this vid made me cry.. Oof. The validation 😅

  14. I didn’t expect this video to be so motivational. You’ve really given me food for thought!! Thank you x

  15. One top that I’ve found useful, especially with the fact I suffer a lot from depression and anxiety, is that it’s okay to take a break. I personally try to get myself to do at least 5 minutes of cleaning. After those 5, I’ll keep going if I want to, but if I feel that I want to stop, I don’t want to clean anymore, I’ll stop. I view it as 5 minutes cleaning is better than no cleaning at all

  16. I could never do so much in a day! I find it so daunting to even start. You did it splendidly, wish I could

  17. You are perfecte

  18. What is your husband doing in this beautiful house?

  19. 👍👍👍

  20. I. like

  21. Just subscribed. Thanks you for this! Thanks also for the part that reveals perfectionism for what it is. I’m so guilty of that. I’m going to try the 80/80 rule. God bless and thanks again!

  22. This video really motivate me. So m gonna clean my room wall unit today. Thnx…

  23. Whoa. Didn’t expect this. Just the first one alone made an impact. Thank you for this video (just did a random search on YouTube with low expectations and am pleasantly surprised)

  24. Thank you, this video motivated me <3

  25. Great video and ideas.

  26. 😭😭😭😭It made me feel better someone else had a mini disaster

  27. Love me some cleaning motivation! Now that we are all stuck at home it is time to tackle all of those cleaning jobs I have been putting off for so long!!! Great content girl!

  28. Girl you got such cute kids are you gonna have any more?

  29. i cant wait until i have my own home

  30. Once you get started you do want to keep going ! Happens to me everytime lol. Just gotta get past the first 5-10 mins and then a few hours goes by and my house is so clean lol

  31. Love your house the 8080 rule is awesome thank you

  32. I’m motivated to clean and organize my whole house, re paint and everything but my parents destroy the house

  33. I’m pretty sure I watch this daily

  34. Brazil

  35. am I supposed to feel motivated? I don’t feel motivated, I feel like jumping off a bridge…

  36. Beautiful home!

  37. Lovvveee the format of this video!

  38. Wow!!!! That perfectionist commentary just blew my lid!!! So true! It’s fear.

  39. Sometimes your home just needs a little love.

  40. I wish I could do what you do but my disability doesn’t always allow me. What are somethings I would do. Because, if I try to do even some small things. It takes me along time to recover physically. So, I just doing the dishes is too much.

  41. Do your kids help? That’s a lot of toys and bathroom mess that they could easily put away too.

  42. Thank you for the broom hack totally awesome never thought of it before !! 💪💪

  43. I just love the way it looks afterwards. I love the way it feels.

  44. This is great. Any tips for a home with 2 toddlers lol

  45. I love you and your positivity!

  46. Dang! You have a PinterestHome!

  47. Love cleaning videos but your tips and motivation added as well as the audio clip were great additions!

  48. If you had less stuff wouldn’t there. R a lot less cleaning?

  49. Love the idea about the broom and cloth to clean baseboards. I have trouble with my knees this is an excellent way to clean

  50. Thank you. This has given me the permission not to be perfect. It has also given me the inspiration to move forward.

  51. I wish I could move at that speed cleaning the place 🙂

  52. Put a cloth on a broom…how simple…THANKS!!!!!

  53. I love you for sharing your ideas, encouragement, humanity & imperfections with us all! We as women tend to want to be perfect all the time and frankly that just increases our stress. We need to learn to take time (even if it’s in 15 min. increments).. to drink a cup of tea, soak our feet in a pampering foot soak, or just eat a little of a favorite food – slowly… We all need to be as caring and loving to ourselves, as we are to a treasured friend. I know I’ll try better to follow my own advice, while being a caretaker to my Mami. Love, Health & Happiness to you All! 😀 <3

  54. Even your voice and calm helps during these times. I’m isolated at home and hate it!

  55. I love your background music. Love you too baby.

  56. i’ve been extremely depressed this month and haven’t had motivation to do anything. my house is a mess and i’m two weeks behind on schoolwork.

    i want to get my house clean, because i want it to be a safe environment for my niece, who i’m going to be watching during the day starting tuesday.

  57. Had my mother help me and she CONSTANTLY made comments,basically putting me down. She and my dad NEVER taught me HOW to basically do anything,because they”were busy” with my brother who is a druggiealcoholic(he’ been living with them the past 20 years). But they EXPECT me to be”little miss perfect”. And I’m tired of it.

  58. Why is it only 7 minutes?

  59. 😍🌸

  60. Beautiful home! I do this 5 days a week for other people but for some reason don’t do it for myself? Makes me feel like a mental mess because I know I’m capable!?!

  61. Your house is beautiful! I usually take breaks when cleaning my entire house & that break turns into an hour… and sometimes the next day! 🙈 Im going to shoot for consistancy today.


  63. i just met you and feel so validated by you. thank you. the quote about perfectionism got me very emotional and teary. I think part of the reason why I can’t get myself up to clean is because I have a giant fear of failing. not finishing cleaning would mean failure to me. not clean enough means failure to me. when it is not. it doesn’t define who i am.

    thank you so much for your words & this video 💕

  64. Oof. When the video is called “disaster cleaning” but your house looks even worse:(

  65. Where are those grey mirrors from? They are awesome

  66. I was NOT prepared for the emotional reaction I had to this video! I feel like this was multiple therapy sessions packed into 6 minutes, lol. Thank you for all of this. 💙

  67. Thank you

  68. Ok, what do you do with all of the plungers!!!! 🙂

  69. 💪❤

  70. This is the most beautiful video i watched on cleaning.

  71. Thumbs up! I love to clean and I’m motivated as long as I have several cups of coffee lol
    I love the messy areas because what I do is I grab baskets and I tend to put things in baskets and then I sort them out. People like yourself keep people like me going thank you

  72. What stood out to me is you’re in Michigan, my beloved home state! I moved to MO just 2 1/2 years ago to get away from the harsh northern lower Michigan winters (although I dearly love my native Traverse City, and would move back in a heartbeat if “things” in my life would permit).

  73. i had positive energy by watching the video because i do not love cleaning at all

  74. watching cleaning videos at 2 in the morning hit DIFFERENT. plus i’m sick and can’t sleep

  75. T H A N K YOU! So much…. just your cheerfulness. I have so much fear with perfectionism…… ❤️❤️❤️❤️

  76. I like the remark of “daily tidies and then focus on one room a day”,, makes it all do-able!

  77. Thank you for mentioning cleaning with depression. Love the video.

  78. Are the 3 mirrors in your dining room a DIY? If so, can you share a link?

  79. What steam mop do you recommend? I have been wanting one but, it’s hard to trust what’s a good product

  80. This is amazing.
    I’ve seen plenty of videos where people clean and organize their houses with fancy products that I just don’t have and can’t / don’t want to buy.

    This is really inspiring, thank you ❤️

  81. So much motivation!!

  82. I love these videos so much I started my own! 😄

  83. I love the 80/80 idea

  84. I wish I had OCD.

  85. Jeez, you are so cute..

  86. Sometimes my only inspiration for cleaning is rewarding myself with something I really want to do, after my cleaning is finished. I’ll do a craft, paint or enjoy a treat.
    Sometimes i clean just to give my self permission to re arrange the furniture.
    However, when I dont have a reward or feel uninspired by my house I get depressed by looking at the mess.

  87. Still too cluttered for me 😬😬 I got it from my sister, all she has in her living room is a couch, tv and rug. She’s got 4 children too hahaha

  88. i love this!!!!! so positive and inspiring

  89. I just love you.

  90. what’s the desk that had makeup storage in it called? i need one

  91. Omg I loved this video! I loved that you added mindset dissecting in it.

  92. I’m currently trying to keep my house as close to 100% clean as possible because we’re trying to sell it. I have a 2 year old, and I burn out quickly when I clean.

  93. I don’t typically comment but I just wanted to say that I loved this style of a cleaning motivational video. the uplifting and encouraging VoiceOver really gave me some calm to the chores I need to tackle today. I am 5 months pregnant and trying to declutter and make room for our baby.

  94. Watching this is making me procrastinate me cleaning my apt

  95. jehovah’s witnesses & Japanese people are probably the cleanest people you will ever meet

  96. I loved this!! Thank you thank you thank you.

  97. Which steam mop are you using?

  98. Wow you got so much done ✅ Great motivation 💕

  99. I have anxiety and if I don’t clean I feel anxious

  100. Casual Karen cleaning day lol

  101. Tell me why I started tearing up haha!! I definitely needed this today. Thank you for this video ❤️

  102. I loved it ❤🖒👏👌

  103. I loved your video. I am a new follower from Rio de Janeiro – Brazil. ❤️🥰

  104. This video reminded me of how relaxed i feel after a clean house

  105. Lucky. Your garage is not as messy as mine. In mine, you cant see the ground

  106. Now I understand why this was the top video under the search “cleaning motivation”. You get us 👏

  107. This makes me realize of how much of a loser i am

  108. Wonderful job lady!!!!! My home is always getting messed up fast with eight kiddos here! Lol

    I love your being real! That’s how we operate! We are working on decluttering! It’s so freeing for us to do, but it’s a long process!

    I love your reasons you gave for wanting things to be clean! You’re so so right! God bless you sweet lady!

  109. What kind of steam mop do you have?

  110. Hi Kathryn! Just wanted to ask where you got the light blue shorts from? I always find that shorts are too short nowadays and these look like the perfect length for summer. <3

  111. Wish I could clean in fast motion like that!

  112. I’m definitely inspired… ow I just need your energy!!😉 😓

  113. Ok friend.Get pregnant please

  114. Thank you for this! Go lions!

  115. Yes I am going to get my house done watching now instead. it did give me the boost to get my ass up lol

  116. Wonderfully inspiring video.You showed us its ok to be normal.Thanks for the kind forgiving words.

  117. Gracias por ser una gran inspiración para estar limpiado mi casa 🏠

  118. Your videos are always so positive and down to earth! Thanks for the motivation

  119. Great advice and love.

  120. Love love love I feel so inspired 😍😍😍😍

  121. I want to keep a clean house because my hard working husband deserves it 🥰

  122. Your house is gorgeous

  123. ay mujer de verte me canse!!….

  124. Thank you! I HATE cleaning and am not very good at it. So thank you for the motivation!

  125. That part at the beginning…
    Works 2 jobs ✔️
    Chronic health issue ✔️
    Anxiety and depression ✔️
    I’m working on mine it doesn’t help that I have all my mom’s stuff to go thru as well. Somedays I can get a decent amount done somedays I strive for the basics (dishes and laundry). There are days none of that gets done but I’m trying.

  126. 4:16…is my favorite part!!!! Thank you so much!!!!

  127. You have a Beautiful home 🙂

  128. You have a beautiful house (a beautiful , “clean house”, lol) Thanks for to videos.

  129. I’ve been trying to figure out a way to clean my baseboards, I just found it….thanks for sharing, great video.

  130. Don’t forget to teach everyone on your household to put away stuff! Kids as young as 3 can get this with some repetition. Husbands might take longer to train than the kids but worth the effort!

  131. All of the things you said really reso ated and gave me hope because my house is way messier but still I had your tips. I loved that message in the middle. Let’s let perfectionism die.

  132. Wish I could love this a thousand times. I have used your “A done something is better than a perfect nothing.” quote for a year now and I speak into other women’s lives as well. I also love your 80/80 guideline. And oh. My. Goodness….that author’s excerpt. I was weeping. I so needed to hear that today at this exact time. So, thank you sooo much, Kathryn!

  133. I love your video. I love knowing how long it took you to do that cleaning. 👍 You Rock. For me,
    I work best with inspiring Christian music, otherwise I get distracted to easy.😘

  134. Your videos are fantastic. Thanks so much. Do you have any videos on how to organize makeup and skincare products in a bathroom? My bathroom is so cluttered

  135. Do you have a full time job outside your home and no help? If the answer is yes. Then props to you otherwise there’s no time for that. Nice thought though!

  136. I love your house

  137. What about places where there’s just no storage space any where ?

  138. I am purging right now and it feels so good to scale down On my belongings and helps you keep your home clean a little easier

  139. This video was so beautifully made! The voiceover was intelligent and relevant, and the music was in the background, not dominant or distracting.
    Presentation and content were both excellent.
    Thank you.. Thank you : )

  140. Sometimes when I get blown up of anxiety its hard not for it to puff out a little at my child it bothers me and makes me feel worse any advice

  141. this is why i dont prefer to live in a huge house!!

  142. New to the channel..I’m on a new mission to get my house organized and clutter free..your channel is awesome..I love you 80/80 rule bc often times I find myself trying to love in a perfect mess free house and 95% of the time I fail miserably which makes it worse..thank you

  143. Thank you.

  144. Oh, you!! This video got me on a deep clean, soul-feeding way. After the death of my mentor my house reflects my broken heart. It’s been almost 3 years…I am waking up. And, it’s a mess in here! I am ready to stay on top of laundry and suck up the dust bunnies that have done what bunnies do. I’m done with survival mode and the shame that comes from feeling like a failure at home. Thank you for being real and vulnerable with us and for sharing your tips and tricks and your gift of playful, family-centered home-tending. And, thanks for throwing in some Elizabeth Gilbert…geesh! I was near tears already and then I lost it when she said we don’t have to earn our right to be here. Yup. I deserve to exist even if my husband runs out of clean socks. Thanks for the reminder. I’m a therapist and this 7 minute video has helped me (and, it will my clients) more than most 7 hour conferences. 😉

  145. Cleaning is like a therapy for me . Satisfaction of job well done 👍 and great for health . One corner at a time 👍

  146. Go Lions!!

  147. Loved this video!!! Loved the sound clip you added!!

  148. I truly love this video!!!! Thank you for not judging, being so open, and sharing resources and information!!! ❤️❤️😫

  149. I really love when you put the speeches you tell us about in your vids

  150. Omg!!!!! Thank you ….. I started cleaning after watching this!!! Lol

  151. Thank you very much. 💜💜

  152. Your home looks like a very practical cozy place. I feel you’re my soulmate lol. I’m a teacher too and a recovering perfectionist 💜.

  153. My home just needs a little more help everybody clean up after them selfs lol

  154. I absolutely love this! I have had issues with motivation to clean, motivation in general and this really helped! Thank you so much.

  155. Can we be friends

  156. Elizabeth Gilbert is very wrong. And if you really listen to what she is saying, then you will realize it. Her words are actually very dangerous for the soul.

  157. Your house is beautiful and So Cozy!!! Now I know, I am not alone. Thank for sharing.

  158. Thank you for giving me inspiration!

  159. Cleaning is so difficult for me. I have zero motivation so it just gets worse. I have 5 children who couldn’t be bothered to help their momma. This video gives me some motivation

  160. 0:39 i just wanted to watch speed cleaning not a whole paragraph of talking

  161. I love ❤️ your channel it’s really inspired me to organize, even though I’m not good at 😄

  162. Our home is decluttered, but needs SERIOUS cleaning… your “dirty” home is how I wish ours would look like😅.

    1. AllaCinderella ahahah I agree! we always need these type of videos!!! Small YouTuber here 🙃

  163. Well I say that mess always gives a little character to your house, it shows it’s your home! 20% that is🤣💗

  164. So, did you ever makeover and organize your guest/craft room?

  165. That’s not all true for everyone. Cleaning actually stresses me out.

  166. The rag on the broom! genius!

  167. These are all valid and realistic points..thank you for sharing

  168. I like to do power hours of cleaning Mon-Fri. I pick a focus zone and dedicate 30 min to deep clean that space, the other 30 min is to tidy the rest of the house and taking care of pet peeves. For example my focus is the Sitting room… I deep clean that, but the dining room is wiping the table and sweeping, kitchen is dishes in the dishwasher, trash/ recycling, and crumbs, bathroom is toothpaste from the mirror and sink, etc…. I’m off on the weekends and it’s nice to relax a bit or take a Saturday morning for laundry. I also have older children that clean their rooms and bathroom, so I will take a Saturday to deep clean their bathroom and help declutter their bedrooms. Once I got into a habit I looked forward to it. I enjoy coming home to a somewhat clean space. Our home is loved and lived in, so not perfect, but tidy. I used to save my cleaning until the weekend and it was no fun and didn’t feel like a day off, so that’s what works for me. Thanks for the motivation!!!!!

  169. I feel like you are so relatable. What stood out to me was that you included many reasons why people struggle with this. (Stress, Anxiety,Depression, a loved one etc.) You gave us a good mind set of 80/80 and you gave us real content to back that mindset up. I live in a studio appt. and it is hard to keep it tidy and clean. This made me motivated and want to be more disciplined. Thank you for starting my day off great. You helped me 🙂 Also, your house is beautiful and I strive to have a house that cute one day! 🙂 Lots of love, thanks again 🙂 ❤

  170. Love it ❤️

  171. i loved the clip about perfectionism. “auditioning for a role you already got. it’s ok to just be.” it was an ah ha moment. i really need to hear that!❤️ thank you!

  172. This video showed up in my news feed today and I like what Elizabeth Gilbert says about perfectionism. But what about the perfectionism that other people place on us? Like our peers and relatives? I’m already hard on myself and when others don’t give their stamp of approval, it can make things even more challenging.

  173. Lovely house. Good job!

  174. Funny my cousins fiancé is a coach for the Lions lol!!!

  175. I liked the idea of cleaning as therapy!
    Thank you for that mindset!
    I also agree that you get better at cleaning the more you do it. That is something I have noticed myself, but it was great to hear someone else say it. I actually enjoy organizing different spaces in my home to perfection! Everytime I open a drawer or a closet, and it’s treat to the eye, that makes it worth keeping it organized, and you won’t have to do it again after a while.

  176. The first few minutes of this and I’m subcribing

  177. I like seeing houses that are really in need of a cleaning.

  178. ❤️this!! HAPPY CLEANING AND GREAT TIMES IN 2020!!!

  179. Thank you for being you and being awesome! I enjoy your positive attitude and your amazing content💕

  180. The moment I saw the mess in the garage, I laughed. My garage is like that right now! 😫🤣🤣

  181. My girlfriend and I both have mentall illnesses includind anxiety depression on top of lack of motivation so It can be really hard for us to keep our apartment clean. Just a week ago my girlfriend spranged her ankle at work so now she can’t even walk around that much. So now it’s up to me to get the place back on track. I’m hoping to find the motivation to do so today. There is laundry, dishes, and garbage everywhere @_@ Watching this inspired me, thank you <3

  182. Your house is beautiful❤

  183. I absolutely love how positive you are. It feels like no.matter how hard I try I just can’t seem to keep up with everything 80/80 rule will help me with that how do you determine what is 80% of your house and what is 80% of the time? Oh yeah and…. CHIEFS!!!! Lol

  184. Watching your videos is motivating, that is for certain. The difference in you and I is in your home, everything has a place. We downsized by half and now NOTHING has a home. Thanks for staying positive

  185. I need a steam mop now!

  186. Thanks for a great video – loved the baseboards (we call them skirting boards in Scotland) tip. Will need to try that! Cheers.

  187. i have trouble getting motivated to clean because, even when clean, my house isnt inspiring to me at all. I grew up poor and all my furniture, appliances, dishes, everything is old, mismatch, and worn out. So even when clean it doesnt look clean and beautiful, which just adds to my lack of motivation. It also makes it harder to organize because when things are mismatched, they dont tend to fit together neatly or in an appealing manner.

  188. Your home is beautiful. I really like the mirrors that are framed in I’m guessing your entry our living room where did you get them???

    1. ??

  189. OMG… what a beautiful house! 😍

  190. I think that with my chronic pain, I am going to be OK having 50/50 days that might become 75/75 after the endorphins kick in. Doing something is better than, not. Thanks for the Idea of 80/80. I think that for me 50/50 and once I get the boost, I can think 75/75 in a specific area. I am aiming lower so that I can be happier when I do do a bit more. And not feel like a failure when I only get the 50/50. Just don’t let any monsters continue to grow.

  191. I love the inspiration you give me everytime I watch!

  192. And when you have that cute giggling happy little guy nearby, what a joy in the middle of your work day!

  193. I find if I get up and do a little housekeeping, start moving around and accomplishing small things, it motivates you to do more. For me the more I do the more my energy and motivation increases…until of course I need a break or its time to switch gears for the day. And making a quick list of priorities for the day helps, too! At 68 I still keep up a 3100 sq. ft. home! Under certain unfortunate circumstances I have learned to let go of perfectionism. It’s not easy when you truly like and enjoy things to be clean, pleasant, pretty and orderly.

  194. I realized something about perfectionism watching an old Oprah episode with a very “normal” looking hoarder. She was actually a perfectionist. It was an all or nothing attitude she had. If she couldn’t get it perfect, she did nothing at all. I see this in myself with life stuff not so much cleaning. Perfectionism is an extreme. Just like everything in life it’s all about balance.

  195. Great Motivational Video,!Thanks!!

  196. Thank you!

    I do better with 10-15 minute intervals. I time myself, do a small job, see the improvement, and become INSPIRED to do another small job. (Big jobs can be several small jobs. I just have to START, somewhere!)

    Clearing out all the plastic bags I had allowed to accumulate didn’t make an OUTWARD change in the “mess”. However, the feeling of ACCOMPLISHMENT pushed me to do MORE! Now my kitchen island looks great and my condo floors are almost TOTALLY clean!

    PLUS, I actually COOKED one of my delivered food box meals, AND cleaned up after myself!

    What POSSIBILITIES I’m discovering!

    Thanks so much for your positive outlook on cleaning!!!


  197. There’s a proverb: “It’s clean not in the house where you tidy, it’s clean in the house where you don’t make a mess”.
    So why not to teach spouse and kids to PUT THE THING BACK FROM WHERE THEY TOOK IT?
    They took a toothpaste – put it back, not on the sink, what’s the problem with that? Took a toothbrush-the same!
    Used dishes – put them in the washing machine. At once. There’s no big trouble in that.
    Then you won’t have to go so hard on cleaning!

  198. Thank you for this! I always say I’m a terrible housekeeper. This video made me oddly emotional. I will watch it again

  199. I just started watching this series yesterday and this video just finished and I am just finishing doing my dishes. So yes you motivated me to do something productive in the house.

  200. From your videos, I have organized my horrid pantry and under my kitchen and bathroom sinks. You are so right when you say that once you begin cleaning and organizing, you want to continue. One of my spare bedrooms has become a dressing/dumping ground. I am now motivated to turn it into a proper dressing room. Thank you so much–and who knew how awesome the Dollar Tree can be??? thank you!

  201. Gen Z kids watching: She’s a Karen

  202. I love hearing your little boy laugh at the end of your videos. It’s a great reminder to look at life with a joyous heart! Happy New Year! 😊

  203. I need help with a sewing room & craft area but it gets to overwhelmed. I live in a small mobile home and I want to use the smaller room for this.

  204. But having an extra bedroom for guest is essential.

  205. The start is frightening….then you get into the mood

  206. This is just what I needed today! I love your positive attitude and you have such a gorgeous home! Thank you for sharing with us ❤️

  207. I dont have a spare bedroom for my diys so I put all that in a corner …. How xan I organize my diy corner ?

  208. That title really attacked me

  209. I watched this video with my 8 year old and it motivated her to go clean her room 🙂
    She also is subscribing to your page. Your videos are so inspiring and a page I don’t mind my daughter watching because of your great wholesome example:)

  210. Sorry but I need motivation to clean a home much filthier than that. 😭

  211. This was the best motivational cleaning video! Very inspiring and uplifting. Thank you!

  212. Thank you for sharing this! I actually teared up a little when that dear woman was speaking about perfectionism :*) lol Thank you!

  213. These are great tips! I was confused for a second because I recognized your home… but then I remembered I watched your decor makeover with Rebecca Robeson! So funny!

  214. Me: *sees a bunch of makeup on desk*
    Her: *closes desk*
    Me: WHATTTTTTTTT!?!?!?

  215. Thank you so much for your videos this year, they helped me get through these past six months.

  216. I hate how dirty my skirting boards are and since I had surgery I cannot vacuum as often as I did. Your idea of the cleaning cloth on the broom means I can dust my skirting when I have the energy without hauling out the vacuum!

  217. I LOVE your house sweetheart 💙💙💙

  218. 1 hour for a whole house?!?! Wow. Thank you for the video. Very cool.

  219. I watched a video on cleaning so I could stall for 7 more minutes.

    1. 😭😭😭👌🏽

    2. I feel personally attacked by this 😭😂

    3. 😂😂😂 frrrr me toooo

    4. I claim that I am motivating myself lol

    5. Arthur Slugworth yeppppp

  220. Great video. I am currently trying to clean out our office. It’s a paper mess. I was the trustee for my parents estate. How long do I have to keep records? Thanks for your help

  221. elinize sağlık

  222. Other than the storeroom, I’d call the rest of the house an average mess. Not disaster enough. But still helpful and inspiring though, at least still an effective cleaning video, unlike the how-to-clean-a-dust-spot-in-an-already-clean-house but titled as disaster mess

  223. Hi I am gonna do that when you are my first person in the video and you are organizing the house and you are really good cleaning and you are rule at your own house

  224. Thank you for being you and posting things like you do. I REALLY needed this video!! ☺️

  225. Elizabeth Gilbert quote was me . It hit me so hard and It made so much sense what I’ve been doing all my life. Because of me trying to be accepted, approved of I worked myself sick. I decided to change my lifestyle and then saw this video. Talk about timing. Thank you so much. I am learning a new way to live without stressing myself sick. To be healthy and happy.

  226. Thank you for sharing, i just moved and i feel overwhelmed with the boxes

  227. I. Wasted so much time , I could have been playing with my children or husband.. but I felt that fear she speaks of.. I believed that my house had to be spotless and I mean everything inside and outside.. I did play with my children but I put to much importance on the cleanesss of our home.
    So glad I was able to stop as my children got older and they are not following the example… I love how they are able to have some messy spaces without the freakout that I always felt.
    Love watching your video.. what a great way to help people get motivated without the fear of imperfection

  228. love the mirrows

  229. Loved this video! Thank you for the motivation and explaining the reasoning behind why we do the things we do!

  230. You are superwoman!!!
    You are motivation with this video..Happy Holidays!!!

  231. Loved it. I used to be really good at cleaning. When I star dating my husband like his jaw would drop of how clean I made his apartment. Sadly I became non motivated and we always have a mess. With a baby on the way I really need to change it because I don’t want to raise my baby thinking its okay to live in a messy place.

    1. Maintain cleanliness and organisation while having babies are not easy. That is why people resort to hiring house helpers or in countries where there is no option to hire an affordable helper, the household got to help on it, means, husbands got to help on cleaning while wife manage the kid.

    2. Just be kind to yourself and do a little at a time. One small pile or drawer or something. And congratulations on your pregnancy ☺️ theres nothing as lovely a new baby.x

  232. God bless you for this video.👌🏾🤗👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾

  233. What happened to your house? Why is it so messed? 😱

  234. Girl, you are a beast…all of that in one day?? OMGGG

  235. Alhamdulellah in Arabic is thanks God

    For having watching your video hhhh

  236. I was recently not feeling good about anything in my life, I began to watch cleaning videos and I’m super motivated to clean my house now, and I feel very hopeful for the future.

  237. Absolutely love these videos. So much inspiration! You really have a gift <3

  238. So glad I found this video. Very motivational. I have been depressed and not feeling like doing anything. I have laundry piled up and my boys keep messing the house up which makes me give up cleaning it. I am going to get up and get some things done and donate the extra things that just lay around and I push to the side or put somewhere I won’t see it again Haha. Thank you so much for the motivation. Love everything you said through this video ❤

  239. I wanna thank you so much, for inviting us into your home, and showing the real genuine person that you are. I havent been a subscriber for long, but I look forward to your videos as you inspire me to do better then I am at the moment. For being present in the moment and pointing out really big issues tht I just procrastinated over. The motivational speakers you always mention have been amazing. And have help reshape my thinking, as well as your amazing thoughts and ideas, tips, and love, changed me forever and how I feel about my myself, home and life. Thank you for being a wonderfully beautiful person., sincerely michelle. Have a safe and happy holiday!!!!

  240. This video was so helpful and kind ❤️

  241. That is such a gorgeous house.

  242. Thanks for being real!

  243. I love that you gave everything a name and how to fix it! Now time to go tackle my kitchen!!

  244. Thank you for sharing this. I’m looking forward to the craft room renovation. Will it still include a bed for the once a year guests? 😄

  245. The 80/80 rule stuck out to me.

  246. You are an amazing human being. Thank you.

  247. Hey! You are such a inspiration thank you

  248. The quotes from Elizabeth Gilbert hit me hard! I started crying 😢 my husband is looking at me like “what’s up with you?” 😆 thank you 🙏🏻 for that though!! Great video 👏🏻

  249. That quote on perfectionism actually made me cry. I needed to hear it.
    Your videos have really been helping me over the last few weeks.

  250. I loved that saying on your mug about a done something is better than a perfect nothing!

    1. I also heard something similar on a podcast – doing one thing is better than learning about twenty new ways to do something. It struck me that I was so busy watching Youtube about how to become productive that I forgot the whole point is to do something.

  251. I need to clean the house.

    Then I mess it up.

  252. Does anyone have to clean up after their family? Like as a kid?

  253. Honestly I get discouraged because everyone does the mess and I feel like a slave picking after everyone.As a house wife I know how it feels to have all the burden without help and noone to value what a women does to make a house a home🙄…

    1. Cleaning is satisfying when it’s in an individual area. But that satisfaction could turn oppressive when the mess came from a team yet cleaning is not done in teamwork – unless the person who cleans gets paid separately just to do the job. I know a man who refuse to hire any helpers to clean his house, as he wants his kids to know how to clean and he trains them to clean their own mess and helping on other house chores.

    2. @Braken Rose Thank you😉

    3. Hi

    4. If you’ve never heard of the flylady you should look her up. She says that if you lead by example and dont be a martyr that the rest of the household will follow suit. I would highly recommend her to help get your family helping out. She even sends out emails for daily tasks and they include tasks for kids too! It’s all free. Hope that helps x

  254. This is the first video I’ve watched and I loved your message you had along with cleaning motivation!!! You’re inspiring… to life. Thank you for posting!!

  255. I got depresión bad so I like cleaning my house it helps me calm down I love watching other peoples cleaning vídeos it helps me feel better when im depressed so thank you for sharing your’e cleaning vídeo with me

  256. I know it goes without saying, but thank you so much for bringing such quality content. I love your channel so much. I find that if I feel overwhelmed when cleaning/needing to clean, I just need to pop on a video of yours to listen to in the background. Such a lovely voice.

  257. May I ask what you are doing with four plungers? Just curious 🧐

  258. I needed this so much! It is literally 2:15am and I have been paralyzed “thinking” about starting to clean for a Xmas get-together I have tonight. The reminder that perfectionism is just fear and that little mug with the quote is exactly what I needed. Thank you for being so inspiring!

  259. That was a really well done job.

  260. This was honestly so beautiful 💗

    When I was younger, my mom would force me to clean when she could tell I was sad (like a teenage heartbreak lol). She’d tell me to clean bc the devil likes to work best when I’m sitting lazy in my thoughts. Now as an adult & ive been through one of the deepest depressions of my life, I see what she meant by that now. I was newly married, hating my military life/job environment & I was so depressed that it was almost painful to get up from bed. It felt like I was rotting with my apartment. Over a couple of months, therapy has been absolutely wonderful to me, & whenever I’d clean, it’d actually make me really happy. A nice clean environment truly sets my mood right, & I see it also helped my husband to be a nice clean environment. We are both in a better place, thank God🥰 I know I just rambled here, but if someone read this, going through anything and you’ve left your place a mess, I just want to contribute to say that cleaning really does help. I hope whatever you’re going through gets better, & even the simple act of making your bed can lift your spirits. God bless!🥰💕

  261. love it! thank you! 💖 motivated me to not think my home has to be perfect or ive failed

  262. Tfs💕 I have a tiny house I need to organize

  263. Directly cleaning! Watchin smo that cleans is so inspiring yea! XD or we leave everything and say thats the Depression XD

  264. How do you store your giant red bricks? Just in the open? They’re hard to store away out of sight!

  265. Those quotes are great, definitely hit home.

  266. Thank you for this video. I’ve watched it a few times before. It truly does motivate me b/c getting started IS the hardest part, but seeing the difference in your rooms reminds me of the rewards that come. The Elizabeth Gilbert quote was spot on!

  267. That Elizabeth Gilbert piece gave me internal peace. Thank you 😊🌈💜

  268. I love this kind of stuff, it’s like therapy for me. I appreciated especially the steps and inserting the quote.

  269. This is the first Cleanspo that has truly inspired me. I have depression which makes it so difficult to get motivation. So, thank you.

  270. I am 1 minute and 43 seconds in and I’m hooked. I need this type of motivation in my life right now so badly, so thank you.. from a stay at home mom of two battling a spinal abnormality and depression/anxiety. 🤘💕💕

    1. Just wanted to say you’re not alone. I’m a stay at home mom of two young boys and I have agoraphobia, I have fear of panic attacks and can barely leave my house and can’t go farther than a half mile away. I’ve had this for two years. Sending encouragement your way💕

  271. No vaccum ? Lol

  272. Thanks so much for this. My house looks worse than yours (sigh), but it was kinda nice to see your house isn’t as perfect as it always seems. Thanks for letting us see reality. Your love and compassion for people is so beautiful and I appreciate it so much.

  273. I have been in a depression for months. I have clutter everywhere and I want get it out and be my creative self again. I ran across your channel and this video as well and I am truelly inspired and motivated. Thank you for capturing yourself in true authenticity that we are all not perfect and the inspirational audio. 💕🌷

  274. Love this video!!!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

  275. Finally an actually messy house lol I have 5 boys and most of these videos of mess isn’t really much of anything

  276. 100% loved this video!!

  277. The broom and rag trick – YES!!! That’s awesome!!

  278. To be honest, im playing your video when im cleaning, eventhough i dont have anything like your home/appliance/tools.. your positivity, your smile, and your happy attitude, help me to forget my depression, and do some cleaning..

  279. This was such a blessing thank you for your obedience in filming this. I appreciate you !!! I needed this right now

  280. Delayed decisions is REAL

  281. wish youd put subtitles..

  282. wish youd use less disposable items thats are bad for the earth :/

  283. I absolutely LOVE your channel and your energy!!!! So glad you’re here!

  284. I did a full on clean today took bout 10hours. cleaned of the last part of my bed room. ( I cleaned out the closets. Nd stuff 2 weeks ago and donated a lot) then moved to the kitchen nd cleared out the pantry vacuumed it then wiped nd wiped it out. Threw away old expired stuff. Then sorted it. Then mopped the floor. Then moved to the bathroom cleaned shower. Wiped the washing machine câblées moved it out wiped round it nd so on then mopped the floor. Have a few more parts of the house to clean more up but i wait 2 weeks as the rubbish is every second week nd it’s full now. So it’s good for a break week as I still work full time

  285. The quote by the author has me in tears – I don’t know how you find a way to touch our hearts but you do. I started following you for the dollar tree and daiso hauls but 1.5 years later I’m a better person for your videos ❤️

  286. Honestly the GREATEST cleaning motivation video! Exactly what I needed, thank you thank you thank you!!

  287. Ur amazing ❤️💕😘💯💯💯

  288. First time viewer ….
    Thank u soooooo much for the motivation ❤️

  289. Omg… i cried…it hit me like a brick: i am auditioning for the part i already have….oke…breathe and just be…
    Thank you soooooo much for this video…you are an amazing woman!

  290. Thanks for the Elizabeth Gilbert clip…I needed that and will pass it on. I also gave you a shout-out when I went to hear the entire interview with Hannah. 💓 Also, why do you have 4 plungers?😘😂

  291. ❤️

  292. This was my favorite video !

  293. Delayed decisions and unfinished projects. This video makes me breathe a sigh of relief.

  294. I loved this video. Love your why

  295. I loved your positivity, first video I ever seen of yours. Subscribed!

  296. That was short

  297. Loved it !

  298. Our guest room is the same as yours.
    Our solution will be to make the guest bed into a murphy bed in our office. I will “move out” of the office, and leave it all to my husband.

  299. Thank you! Just feeling a bit paralyzed & lethargic. Gloomy fall days—ugh! You’ve inspired me. And the Elizabeth Gilbert quote just about made me cry. Thanks.

  300. Ok thanks so much for the broom/dust rag tip! Going to use that for sure!

  301. Your video help me so much! I’m from Israel, bipolar, have bpd, ptsd
    And enxiety. I hate cleaning but I have to. I have 4 cats, small house and I work at home as a massage therapist. So, people come to my house every day. I have to cleane. So, thank you!

  302. I needed this encouragement. It’s good to know that I’m not a failure even though things haven’t been working out. It’s good to know that I don’t have to be perfect. That fear of failure has blocked my progress and I’ve pretty much given up on my house. Thank you for your encouraging words as usual.

  303. Where did you get that makeup vanity? I love it!

  304. I could use a good dollar store cleaning hack video. I’ll keep my eyes open for the duster and the micro fiber cloth.

  305. I can’t tell you how much I really needed this today!!! Thankyou ❤️

  306. I’m trying the broom with the pledge and rag right now I’ve never heard of it but it seems so simple looks like it works really well!

  307. I really like that your videos feel real. You feel warm. Thanks. Love how inspirational you can be without being judgy or forceful. Also I just love watching people clean their homes!

  308. I dont have to be perfect to be here. Wooooow I cried listening to this. In fact went and found it and sent it to my email. I suffer from severe anxiety. Listening to her and you has just soothed my soul. Thank you so much sweet lady.

  309. I really needed this video….thank you! 😣🤗

  310. Too short!!

  311. Thank you for the amazing tips and ideas you share. ❤️

  312. Omg love this video so much!!!

  313. This makes me feel so much better and like I dont need to be perfect all the time. I dont feel so horrible. I really appreciated you putting your mess on camera it was so helpful!!! It can be very overwhelming and its noce to know it’s not just me.

  314. I been depressed lately but since I been watching your videos I have noticed my kitchen been cleaner also I make my bed up

  315. am I the only one that only has motivation to clean at night

  316. What do you take or eat to clean the house in one day!!!
    Are you a super woman?
    Are you even human?
    I feel my heart beats like drum if I just washed the dishes!!

  317. @Doitonadime Kathryn, what stood out to me was when you said, “I do daily pick me ups but I also pick one zone and deep clean it the best I can that day”. BINGO. I need to try that because I haven’t begun zone cleaning because breaking it up into 15 minutes a day seems daunting. How do I know what to do each day? What is life happens and I don’t do any of it for three days? The idea of being behind before I even get started is overwhelming. BUT- I CAN take a day that I don’t have crazy going on and give myself a half hour or one hour blessing of getting done what I can in that room, for that day. Then at least I have a done something. That was 🤯. Thanks for that idea. Maybe when my kids are older I can do the little bit here and there, but right now, I need to figure out my zones and start there. Just moved to a new home four months ago.

  318. I love the 80/80 rule!’ And really appreciated you sharing the perfectionism clip with us. I love how you inspire us all to be better but remind us it’s ok to not be perfect. Thank you for being you!

  319. I have a lot of creative hobbies and it’s hard for me to focus when things are cluttered or dirty. I had bought a bunch of different storage containers from Dollar Tree about a year ago. Well it doesn’t count as organized if every storage bin is like a junk drawer. I spent the weekend organizing and now I have quite a few left over that I can use for other things.

  320. Watching this video for the 3rd time! Gets me motivated 🙂
    Quick question…what kind of steam mop do u use..thinking of buying 1
    Melissa 🙂

  321. You are THE BEST! Keep the videos coming!

  322. You are So sweet. I love this

  323. Your home is gorgeous. Loved watching this, suppose I should go clean something now… lol!

  324. Listening to that speech about perfectionism literally brought tears to my eyes because it is soo true and real. It’s exactly how I feel.

  325. I swear I’ve watched hundreds of cleaning videos & you are the first, that actually made me wanna clean. Thanks.

  326. Thank you you help me a lot

  327. So good! I didn’t know I needed this!

  328. Thank you for this inspirational and motivating video!

  329. Please more videos like this one!! Gigi

  330. I love the broom Jack with a cloth to clean the base boards. Genius I will have to try it!! Thanks again, Gigi

  331. Excellent video and great advice. I did a power clean last Sunday afternoon and now I am motivated to do more. I really like all the information. I want to reevaluate my clutter zones to see what I can do differently!! Thanks your boys are so cute and you are truly awesome!! Gigi

  332. I clean my baseboards with my spin mop

  333. Man why didn’t I think of the broom and cloth technique for doing my baseboards. I was just thinking today I had to do them. Good idea.

  334. Your motivational speak, kindness, wonder, and enjoyment of life always makes me tear up. And it lifts my spirits. Thank you.

  335. You seem so caring and I really appreciate that! I found your channel the other day and am so impressed with your knowledge and bright outlook. I’m quite “worn down” at the moment and needed your sweet smile and positive affirmations that there is hope of having bad feelings pass and for new opportunities to emerge. Thank you for your time spent with us………

  336. WOW a REAL one thxs

  337. Everything you said thank you,you are the 👸

  338. I just love your videos and your energy. And your home is absolutely beautiful 💕

  339. love the 80 80 rule. check me out at adventures by kayla

  340. A rag on the broom to clean baseboards! Of course!! I always use just my broom but it isn’t always thorough — adding a rag would fix that. Awesome! Thanks so much for sharing!!

  341. Amazing wonderful video! Great advice best I have heard in a long time. Thanks for the fab ideas!!

  342. I really inspire by you I am watching all of your videos

  343. I love this. I find it helpful to hear how you stay motivated. I am enjoying learning how to clean. You are right, it comforts.

  344. When u said “if u have anxiety or depression” i liked the video at that moment. I get so unmotivated lately.

  345. Wow!!! How inspiring

  346. you have a gorgeous house. I think the issue I struggle with most is living with a home where every single room is under some kind of construction so as much as I organize one area it’s get wrecked by the overflowing construction of the other areas.

  347. I started keeping a bin in my closet that I put things that I don’t wear or like how they fit me in when I try something on. Game changer!! I keep a seperate bag in my front closet door books and movies I am going to donate. When the bag is full or leaves the closet. These are my tips to help clutter. Now if only I could figure out a way to go through the shoe box of photos I have of my son 🤦‍♀️

  348. …what stood out to me in this video is that your house is clean.

  349. this is just clutter. This isn’t bathroom garbage that overflowed that no one dumps out, or guinea pig food spills, bird food spills, hay messes that track all over the house. This isn’t dirty dishes or uncleaned meal prep in the kitchen, or dirty floors, or food messes in the kids rooms when they aren’t allowed food in their room. And this isn’t all of the above all at once. Sigh.

  350. Honestly what stood out was the 80/80 rule and the audio clip explaining what perfectionism is which is fear
    Never really thought of it but that is Soo true
    That was super inspiring I don’t have to earn my keep or even be good in “living”, I’m human and mess is inevitable
    And that’s not permission to let my life behavior or my home to get filled with clutter but a license to fail and learn and grow at a realistic pace
    Thank you for this video God bless

  351. You might want to look at the hyllis shelf from ikea, I put several of them along a wall for all of my crafts and stuff. I did the whole wall for less than 50, and each shelf holds up to 50 lbs. it is a nice reminder that other people struggle with this stuff too.

  352. So helpful

  353. Blessed to have watched this tonight. Resonated so much. Thank you for you!!!🤗🤗🙏🙏

  354. This made me want to get up and get to organizing and cleaning! I just found your channel a few days ago and I love all of your DIY’s and cleaning and motivational videos!! Subscribed!!

  355. What brand is your steam mop? Terrific video!

  356. What kind of steam mop do you use?

  357. Your cleaning videos taught me what it takes to clean a home properly. And how to do it realistically and on a budget.

  358. Getting up and tackling my floors!! I hate mopping 😭

  359. I love tip #5, I never thought of it that the clutter keeps accumulating to rethink the space. Thank you! I love to watch your videos.

  360. Omg I could kiss you for the broom and the baseboard hack 😀 I hate doing it because my vacuum is too big to do with that and I’ve always had to do it by hand and a little rug… So, I basically never do it and it drives me nuts. Never thought about to put a broom on a rug, it’s brilliant 😀😍

  361. I definitely stress clean to feel better

  362. I really love your channel!! You motivate me so much!! Thank you and I love you! I’m so encouraged

  363. I needed this video so much. I have been struggling for the past 2 years, ever since I went back to work full time. The past few months have been particularly disheartening because I lost my job, depression set in big time, my husband nearly died and ended up in the hospital for three weeks and then I started another full time job. But I have felt like a failure because I struggle to maintain our home and though my husband tries there is only so much he can do. I was almost brought to tears with the Elizabeth Gilbert clip – because that is exactly how I feel. Fearful that I am failing. Fearful that others may think I’m not doing enough. Fearing that if something else happens, someone will come in to my house and see what a horrible housekeeper I am. But most of all, fearful that somehow I am failing to live up to everyone else’s expectations of what my house should look like.

  364. I love these videos but I’m also loving them mirrors on the dinning room wall.. Are they a diy project?? Would love to know more about them.

  365. I really really enjoy your upbeat enthusiasm and desire to help others. I’ve always tried to stay around that type of people to enhance my own life. I’m new to your channel and look forward to watching many more of your videos😊

  366. Thanks… I’m going to think about your advice every time I need to clean… I’m pasted do needing to clean.😂

  367. Every time I try to get started, I’m overwhelmed and begin to sink into that dark deep pit of depression. I keep dishes clean due to fear of some food borne illness. But the rest gets minimum effort. I will watch this again later today in hopes I’ll get more motivated. Thank you🌹❤

  368. Just thankful for all the moms in this world, and everything they do!

  369. I am not depresed, i am just lazy, and 80 % of the houses i visit are messy too and they are not depressed, people is just lazy, cleaning should be for the whole family not only for the ones staying at home. You clean all alone and you get nothing in return but more mess and so on.

  370. When I had small two sons Monday was my day to clean the house. I just liked to start out the week with a clean home.

  371. Love watching your videos! They get me motivated everytime I lose it! I have to ask finally what color is your wall!? I love it!

  372. Thank you! I needed this.

  373. you talk to much in your videos…we get it we understand…but love the cleaning up !

  374. What stood out to me was your (don’t know what to call it) “beauty desk)”?- in your bedroom … Where you probably do makeup and hair? Where did you get that? I like how the top folds in 👍🏿 I think it would be good for a teenage daughter?

  375. Can I have the color of the paint in your bed room that gray color? Just ran into your videos and love them thanks for the content!

  376. Love that! I saw a quote from her on Pinterest – “Perfectionism is just fear in fancy shoes”. 🙂

  377. I love the saying on that mug! Great video!

  378. More like this!!!!!!!

  379. So real thank you

  380. Love your videos! It would be great if you sold dime tribe t-shirts!! Thanks for all you do Catherine

  381. I love the way your home is decorated. I feel like I have a mish mosh of stuff on my nightstand and dresser. I’d love to get it all organized and decluttered but I just don’t know where to start!!! Thank you for your video. It’s excellent!!!

  382. I loved it

  383. There is something absolutely amazing about you and your channel! That insert about perfection is spot on! (no pun intended)🤪I clean two times a day before and after work. I worry all the time about someone coming in and catching my house messy. I am a mother of four, but only have my five year old at home. My perfectionism started from my mother in law when my kids were small. She was extremely critical and it was hard.

  384. Why does a cleaning video have me bawling like a baby…. really thank you for showing “real life”.

  385. I really enjoyed this video from content to music. Thank you.

  386. This works for my stubborn little brother.


  388. Perfect motivation! Thank you

  389. This video is incredibly well done! I really appreciate you!

  390. just came here for some motivation to clean my kitchen- didn’t expect to start crying!! Subscribed 💕

  391. You always inspire me to get up and do something! You have such a great attitude/personality.

  392. No matter how hard I try, I can’t get motivated to keep my apartment clean. Mostly because I have too much “stuff”.
    It’s so frustrating. and there just aren’t enough hours in the day.

  393. Down with perfection. Thank you!

  394. This video was emotional for me. I deeply appreciate your honesty in showing your home truly messy and your explaining that perfection is not what you seek and listening to that recording on perfectionism was therapeutic because it is not real but fear masking itself as ambition. Because of the removal of shame, fear, guilt and criticism I actually feel motivated to organize and tidy up, which is a rarity. God bless you for this freeing video🤗

    1. aliciabrillante you might be interested in the vlogger Diane in Denmark who does flylady (first love your self) style cleaning and organizing. She has many videos including a baby steps series. She really focuses on emotions and support as she has been through the same feelings as many of the viewers have commented on here. Plus she is funny and upbeat too.

  395. When you go to make the new craft room, consider putting the full or queen size bed you already have in one of the boy’s rooms. I had a full most of my childhood, but knew when guests visited, I would give it up and sleep in my brother’s room. And we had a den and an office instead of a guest room. More functional space + options for guests.

  396. as I get older house work is harder to do.thank you the great video

  397. Thanks, great points, we need to look at things in perspective. The idea that growing clutter might be the area or system isn’t working, wow. Not that you aren’t working hard enough. can’t 💜💜💜💜

  398. I really like your cleaning tips on how to get started and keep going! Most videos are just a voice over saying what they are doing at that moment I like how you added that 80/80 rule

  399. first of your home is beautiful! second.. I wish that the time lapse could be the way I actually moved!! cleaning is so hard for me to stay on top of, my husband would love to have a clean fresh home daily. Great video

  400. You are such a blessing to all of us,
    you are such an encourager,
    Thank you for motivating me, make the Lord richly bless you and your family continue the good work

  401. Ok. You gave me hope. I’m cleaning by myself. I have the entire house to clean. I got 3 areas done then 😑. That duster saves me. I attached it to an old mop stick and it gets the cobwebs out of the ceiling and windows. I live near the woods. The spiders are very territorial. I get them down, they multiply the next week 🤣. Thanks 🤗. I also subscribed.

  402. What stood out to me is the kids weren’t helping. I had my children play in one room in the house and at the end of the day, they picked up their toys and made their beds pretty much as soon as they could reach the bed. They put their clothes in the hamper and straightened up their bathroom. Everyone in the household needs to help to save sanity.

    I have carpeting and am not sure how to clean baseboards. I also have wallpaper which I vacuum occasionally.

  403. We recently had a water leak in our home, when it was discovered water had seeped into our kids rooms, the bathroom, the hallway and the linen closet. It was a MESS , 1/2 of our home was under renovation for a few months and that inspired me to thoroughly clean and get rid of tons of things we werent using, junk and all the damaged items. I work full time so it isnt too hard to maintain but I love all the inspiration your channel brings.

  404. K,
    Im a long time subbie, and always love your content and your authenticity.. This is another score in the end zone!
    These tips are fantastic and provide new perspectives on cleaning,, self awareness, and self image, self acceptance…and most of all understanding and thus ditching perfectionism! TFS 💖💖💖

  405. Its difficult for me to clean. I not only struggle with vision loss but also asthma and chronic fatigue. When my husband and I first moved into our house six years ago, we could clean it in about two hours. Now, it takes me eight to 10 hours by myself. As both of our health has declined, he is worn out from working his part-time job to supplement his retirement and I’m doing the house by myself. Wish there were some easy answers, but there’s not.

  406. I can never live in a house like that. I feel like the more you buy and surround yourself with, the messier you become. The more I’ve focused on buying what I need and having a routine clean out for donation, the better I’ve become at keeping my place tidy and organized

  407. I just started following you and I’m so in love with your page and your message. And your “guest speaker” gave me a whole new light on “perfection”. Also, your voice is very calming 😊

  408. I love these types of motivational videos and it suits you well. I recently finished Elizabeth Gilbert’s book Big Magic and recommend it. Especially when as a mom we are so hard on ourselves sometimes. Ty for this!

  409. Thanks! I’m going to clean my home now. Btw your boys are so cute!

  410. Saturday mornings are family clean day before any shows ot down time. I think it should be a family activity to raise responsible human being and that everyone can take pride in the home we live in. My kids are 10,6 and 2 and everyone has a job or two on Saturdays. My husband vacuums the whole house while we tackle everything else, change sheets, baseboards, bathroom’s, deep clean bedrooms etc.

    I’d love to see your daily tackle if you haven’t already made a video for that 🙂 God bless your channel

  411. Just an add in , i am a professional cleaner , used to be, retired now.

  412. I do have another thing for you, i am a you tuber aholic(made up word), i make my own laundry soap and it costs pennies in the scheme of things and i take zero credit , i seen it on you tube, Surprise!!!!! LOL.

  413. I’m SO pumped I found your channel! You’re so informative, thoughtful and FULL of life, not to mention MOTIVATING!! Thank you for you Ultimate Clean video and words of encouragement!! May God bless you abundantly for all your wisdom you share (and that fantastic smile!)…wish we were neighbors!! ~Maureen

  414. I am sooo thankful for you and your insight! I am a night shift nurse, and I have Lupus, so clutter is inevitable for me. When I get home after a 13-14 hour shift, there is absolutely NO energy to be had. Thank you so much for this video. You are an inspiration to me. I truly feel that I feel my best physically, emotionally and spiritually, when my space gives me peace. I am now a new subbie……thank you!💗

  415. Thanks girl for the motivation, i loved when you cleaned the garage up, when my husband gets his lab done, we have some things to declutter out of our Garage and our room off the Garage that we store stuff in and have a pantry

  416. That Elizabeth Gilbert quote was great

  417. great videos

  418. My house is soooo bad sick mom lazy kids

  419. Being OCD , I hate a messy house or place in general. I have to clean everyday …. and it’s not fun.

  420. Thanks for the motivation! I’ve been down in the dumps lately and haven’t felt like deep cleaning but this makes me want to make another clean with me video. Thanks for the inspiration ❤️

  421. Dead lord
    Please tell me how you have time to clean and organize this much when you have kids!?!?
    My youngest is 9m and I can’t get more than 20 mins worth of cleaning done

  422. I really love the 80:80 mentality. I’ve never heard of it before and as I strive with stress to get it all done I believe this rule will help. Thanks for showing us the real, unorganized mess 🙂

  423. I feel anxiety. Like your mess is a dream to.My mess. My kids are amazing 2 are autistic. I’m just so tired. But so glad your house isn’t always as clean and your human. Love watching.

  424. Wow! How inspiring! I unfortunately run my business from home so I’m a bit limited in the amount of stuff I can tidy away. I love your tips!

  425. Best video 💕

  426. My last name is Comfort and I love to clean lol

  427. Thank you!

  428. thank you for that thought provoking perspective about being here on this Earth. For me, that thinking seems very right and loving. ..we all need to hear that kind of “stuff”

  429. You have helped me feel so much better about my life, thank you so much. Your energy is so pure and sweet and beautiful and healing to me!

  430. You have no idea how much this helped me, I’ve been feeling so unmotivated 😔 thank you .

  431. I love this so so so much. Thank you!!!

  432. Cleaningtip from me, reserve timeblocks, even if it’s just half an hour, even if you won’t even come near finishing your project, start anyway and be amazed how much you can get done in half an hour!

  433. Thank you for mentioning depression and other disorders that contribute to the frustration of not being able to keep up a house. I have ADHD that worsens as I age and it’s very difficult to keep on it and avoid clutter. Your video is inspiring and motivating. I really appreciate your emphasis on saying it’s okay to be imperfect.

  434. Your house is so beautiful!😍 Thanks for the video and greetings from Germany😊

  435. If I could stand up more than 15 minutes at a time… and has the energy to do aaaaallll that movement without all my lymph nodes popping up all over my body and a fever…

    I would so enjoy doing this to my home. I tried one day, wound up with a fever that night of 102. (Chronic fatigue syndrome).

    But, it was fun to watch you and live vicariously. 😉 Not trying to be jealous. Perhaps my journey is is find ways for those of us with chronic debilitating illness to have a nice home. I could do a channel, once I find it. 👍

  436. Don’t you get tired of cleaning other people’s messes? We have a night time routine. My kids put away their toys before bed, put their clothes in the hamper at bath time, take their dishes to the kitchen after meals. I teach them to clean up after themselves. My Husband picks up after himself as well. The House cleaning is mostly up to me but the whole family has their chores. It teaches kids responsibility.

  437. ♡♡ amazing♡ i needed this

  438. “The more you clean the better you get at it.” I never thought of it like that before! Encouraging

    1. I also like the idea that “it’s easier to keep up than catch up”. 🙂

  439. I am a single gal and hate my living room. I spend most of my time in the kitchen or my bedroom. People think I’m crazy that I want to get rid of the couch and do something unlivingroom like, but its gotta go. This video has shown me it has to go. No one really ever comes over and I need a space that works for me!! Thank you very much!!!

  440. perfection is a mask. trick it into pulling back the mask to reveal the true fear. Thank you I needed to hear that!

  441. Go Lions! YAAAASSS!
    Ehem! I’m 2 weeks retired and now I’m deep cleaning my house (bit by bit!) because I was always to exhausted to do it when I was working 40 hrs/week! It’s coming along. But I feel I want to take a couple of hours and really ‘hit it’!
    I’m loving the cloth on the broom trick and I’m needing to clean my baseboards!

  442. Thank you for this, so much! 💚

  443. My clutter tells the story of no storage space!!! LOL 😆🙄

  444. OMG you have to tell… what’s with all the plungers?

  445. I have to say it did inspire me! Especially the quote about perfectionism! 💜

  446. Hello I’ve been following you since 2017 after having chemo. I’ve dealt with childhood trauma and anxiety and more after cancer. I am now 3 years cancer free praise God! But I deal with anxiety of cleaning. I feel like I am always behind since chemo. Then if I get ahead and clean then see it all messy again….well that make me feel like I didn’t do it right. Thank you for this video. Blessings

  447. What a realistic and positive video. I have an older son, twin babies, and a husband who works a lot of hours. I was in such a state of depression over the house because of its chaos and its tendency to take me away from my family. I did two things: Become realistic over my expectations, and minimize what I own. My house still isn’t clean all the time, but that’s okay I still have friends over and entertain without unduly fretting over the house. Not once has anyone been less entertained because of the imperfections. And getting rid of things means I have less stuff that I have to clean and that helps SO much. Still working on that when I have opportunities.

  448. You have no idea how much I needed this finally got offf my but and finished mine lol

  449. I just love that you dont have a lot of adds popping up❤❤❤

  450. Mine reason to clean right now is that we coughing from all the animal hair 😅😅

  451. Go lions!

  452. Thanks for your inspiration!!

  453. Hi I’m your new subscriber 💝

  454. Beautiful house 🥰

  455. You are realistic! Just discovered you! It’s so hard right now with two kids, working 2 jobs! My focus has always been on healthy plant based meals, cleaning has taken a back seat and it gets overwhelming!

  456. Thanks for this video ❤️

  457. Love your videos I always need some cleaning motivation!! Michigan native here my cousin sang the national anthem at the recent lions game 🥰☺️

  458. Love it! What is the spray you use on the rag for your baseboards? Also, I totally loved when I converted our guest bedroom into an office (and put our guests in the finished basement instead). You could try a trundle twin if you want to keep a bed in there but have a lot more space!

  459. You make me wanna clean😊

  460. If you still want it somewhat of a guestroom, how about a murphy bed? It stays out of the way when you’re crafting and can pull it down when you have guests spending the night.

  461. I am not so much surprised that you cleaned your entire house in a day, or that it only took 2hours. I am however, completely FLOORED by the fact that NO ONE (almost no one 😉) bothered you for 2 hours while you did it!! How did you NOT get called to do 50million other things?! I am trying to clean my bathroom and its already taken 6hrs. Why? Because both my kids are home from school and we have a new puppy. I literally cannot get ANYTHING DONE! 🤦🤦🤦

  462. 80/80
    Numbers really put things into perspective. Makes it less overwhelming.

  463. Wow the heck do you people do? How come you have such a huge house

  464. My issue personally is not cleaning, my issue is that it comes undone before the end of the day. With two young kids (2,4) and a husband, within 24 hours the toys are back on the floor, crumbs everywhere… etc. That’s my issue!!!!!

  465. Does anyone have the link for the “leveling up” rewards system ?

  466. Thanks so much for sharing this video! Perfection = Fear really took that to heart!

  467. This was a suggested video that has been popping up and i just scroll past it… This morning, as i lay in my bed i finally watched it ! I can’t believe how much i needed to see this . Thank you!

  468. You are so right about how getting started is the hardest part. Once I get going, I just want to keep cleaning! (A bit like exercising – I just have to make myself get out there, then I enjoy it.) You are wonderful!

  469. Thank you always being so real!

  470. Awesome very inspirational thanks 💕

  471. You talk to much

  472. So sorry chiefs won

  473. A great suggestion for you guest bedroom would be to add a Murphy bed!😇 whenever you have guests, pull down the bed changing it into a room. The rest of the year, put it up and free up space for your crafts!🙌🏼 also, a closet organizer storage! A cute way to hide away but also store all your crafting supplies!

  474. What do people do to afford these beautiful home???

  475. I totally believe when u start it motivates u to keep going! I started yesterday…bought new bedding for our master bedroom….moved on to gutting out laundry and threw away old towels, socks…clothes on the floor…then to bathroom…so worn down and old looking, bought vinyl flooring to match hardwood in hallway and a new vanity…some paint …updated bathroom by this Wednesday…in full mode now! XO

  476. I enjoy your videos so much! PLEASE keep em COMING!!! I really enjoy Motivation.This was useful.

  477. I believe my problem is I don’t have enough space. I have declutter, cleaned pared down the more I clean out the more I find. I need a solution. I like to craft and I have a room for it and I can’t find a place for everything. I don’t know what to do!!!!!

  478. Great video👌

  479. This was a great video. I had anxiety when I began watching. Seeing you clean so much in one day actually helped relax me. The tips you shared were new reflective questions I hadn’t heard before, therefore they were useful. Thank you for sharing.

  480. What’s the link for the steam mop? Btw You motivate me so much

  481. Why do you have 4 toilet plungers? Why don’t your kids pick up their toys?

  482. I love your baseboard hack! I’m going to be doing a fall deep clean, so this is perfect timing! I have 3 clutter hotspots, and I really want to tackle my garage!

  483. Omg home goals 🙏🏻

  484. You are an angel. Keeping my space tidy and clean has been therapeutic for me this period of grieving the loss of my son. It gives a sense of control that life is not spiraling into a black hole. I’ve learnt so much from you. You are the most upbeat person ever. Saying thank you all the way from Nigeria.

  485. Doesn’t your hubby ever help you out???

  486. Love your all your videos. I struggle getting my kids motivated to help clean. Seeing some helpers like your kids and husband clean with you would have been satisfying to watch in fast motion. Your message was not lost on me, especially about fear and perfection!

  487. @doitonadime You are so real and love to learn from you. Thank you for sharing your ways with us. Question: Where should I get those big storage bins you show in your video?

  488. How did you do so😵😵😵😵😵😵😵😵😵😵

  489. Thank you! I needed this!

  490. What brand/model is your steam mop?

  491. Thanks for the video. Much appreciated. 👍💜

  492. Thank u for adding the reasons y ppl struggle with keeping up the cleaning of their homes! It helps me remember I’m not alone!

  493. 💜💜💜💜Love the hacks.

  494. Your so amazing Kathryn thank you so much for such an inspirational video.

  495. It caught me when you said that doing new crafts will help you get motivated to clean

  496. I love how encouraging you are. So gentle and such a Proverbs 31 Woman! God bless you all.

  497. The thing that stood out the most was that I don’t have to be perfect, my house doesn’t have to look perfect everyday. And who I am and what I am able to get done right now is enough. Thanks so much for this video. 😊

    1. Jenny Svilicich


      Thank you, Jenny!!!

      We are CAPABLE!❤️❤️❤️

  498. Absolutely loved this video, I wish I had heard Elizabeth ( lol that’s my name) 25 years ago! Now I’m 53 and definitely don’t have the energy I used to have! (I’ve been working on my craft room for almost 3 years now! It’s a spare bedroom/craft room. My other half keeps telling me to get rid of the bed, but if both my sons come home I need it! I’m on a tight budget, so it’s not in the budget yet. Any suggestions would be great!! )Plus I’ve had 3 neck surgeries, several other chronic pain issues and full of arthritics. BUT ur videos do inspire me, so THANK YOU! If I could click my heals together ( like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz) I’d wish for a friend/sister like you!!! God bless! Liz Cape Cod Ma😊💗

  499. Omg I really needed to hear that clip thank you so much!!! Perfectionism in my life is driving me crazy 🥺

  500. I really like the 80/80 rule 🙌

  501. Omg how do you keep your white shag rug soooooo clean and white? My kids spilled on it and I try to vaccum it but it still looks horrible and it’s in my living room and I cant afford a new rug right now 🙁

  502. This was AWSOME!!!!

  503. I’ve been watching your channel since you were in the house with the old style kitchen cabinets. Your channel is the only one I have kept since I found YouTube. I love your way of spreading positivity and encouragement ❤️

  504. This was very motivating and really helped my anxiety but now I’m distracted by the 4/5 plungers in your guest room?? I need to know

  505. Instead of sweeping the garage, I use a leaf blower. It gets everything out from all the little nooks & crannies

  506. I needed to hear that definition of perfectionism!!! So thank you!!!

  507. Thank you dear ♥️

  508. If you call these messes, my home is a pit.

  509. I absolutely love this. Its just me and my husband in our house, but I’ve always struggled with cleaning, organizing my home, etc. for a variety of reasons. The main reason I think simply because I feel overwhelmed. I love this video and the positive framing concept! So many cleaning videos focus on “this is step a and b that I do everyday to keep this home x,y,z and it will (seemingly) solve your problems!” That’s fine if it works for you, but I feel that there’s too much focus on perfectionism vs the mental health aspect of it and how it affects your life. This is realistic, positive, supportive, and so down to earth. Thank you for making and sharing this with the world ❤️

  510. Yes very inspiring thank you. Will be cleaning and organizing today will be working with a good vibe going through our house.

  511. Love this!!!! The part about being perfect is great!!! I am totally motivated today to be me and try the best I can!!😁

  512. This was great! And so inspiring thanks for sharing the piece on perfectionism!

  513. I ubslut love 😍 it

  514. love how organised your garage looks x

  515. I love the 80/80 rule 🙂

  516. Hey you! Yes you reading this…👁 May be tomorrow be better than today…let’s keeping fighting ❤️❤️

  517. I clean my house for 3 hrs or more.

  518. I love the broom dusting tip for the baseboards. I’m definitely going to adapt that into my cleaning routine

  519. I am not physically able to clean anymore like I used to. I miss cleaning the bathroom the most. I do really love a neat tidy clean bathroom.

  520. I needed this video! May need to play it every morning.

  521. Can I just say how completely calming and pleasant your voice is. You seem like a genuinely sweet person. This was in my recommendations, and I am now a new subscriber thank you for that! 💞

  522. From my family to your we love your DIY ‘s and everything you do thank you.

  523. Great video. 1hr 50mins to clean and declutter your whole house? Wow, we done 👍 Started decluttering one area, but now a big mess 😵

  524. The broom trick! Love it!

  525. Your videos are so much more than cleaning and organizing. Thank you for your encouragement. I feel seen and understood ♥️

  526. Great video 🥰

  527. Were we all almost crying during a cleaning video?! Life is weird

  528. What did you mean by story telling?

  529. Loved the video and yes I totally got it. My issue, Chronic Pain. The frustration, having the desire to get stuck in to a job but not the ability to because of flare up!! Any suggestions guys?? Xxx

  530. Loved this, I am inspired to deep clean my house but I run out of energy so quick. Just need to break it up to smaller sections.

  531. I looked through your Amazon list but I didn’t see that cute basket with the foldable handles.

  532. Haha! That’s funny that you said “go Lions” because that is my son’s team’s mascot as well!

  533. Love the mug quote. This is a lesson I learned in college, but said better.
    A done something is better than a perfect nothing.

  534. Thank you for showing you actually clean your whole house and showing your disaster areas. I needed this. I have a disaster of my own to take care of.

    All the tips and the perfectionism ted type talk was extremely helpful to me.

  535. Omg I love you so much girl!! You inspire me to clean my entire house!!!

  536. Listening to Elizabeth’s part of “perfection” really hit home. I’m going on 50 and have missed many memories with my boys because i tried to make everything perfect…..for whom??????? Life is too short…enjoy life….great video

    1. I had a cleaning obsession once. Once I realized their will always be dirt and mess I just let go. Rather spend quality time with my husband and friends.

    2. Elva Lugo very honest and you are not alone in this. It’s the Mary/ Martha dynamic

  537. I would like your videos better if you weren’t sped up quite so much.

  538. I love the broom idea. I can’t wait to try it!

  539. Came in expecting a video to help me feel like cleaning up some. Ended up adding this to my motivating videos mix as something I really need in my life to help me get through my fears and achieve my goals. Great content, wow, thank you!

  540. What always stands out to me is the perfectionism is spoken of so often lately but it doesn’t exist in any human. I love to clean my home for my family because order is easier on us. I don’t expect anyone’s home to be a show place most of the time. You did an awesome job cleaning up the life that happens to all of us. God bless and thanks!

  541. I always tell myself that I’m going to clean because it will help me clear my mind and be more relaxed and that motivates me to clean I also like to promise myself small treats like new bubble bath or a new candle when I finish cleaning or something like that.

  542. Thank you I really needed this today! My anxiety always tries to overwhelm me and I tend to have panic attacks or migraines from it… I’m going to try 80/80 rule. 💕

  543. I have been watching your videos and they are inspiring, because I had 8 kids it was good for the older ones to help out and when I showed them your videos they got excited too but know my older kids and I can’t even clean our own house since my 3 beautiful little girls passed in an car accident. It’s to been hard to handle it all, it has built up so much, since we were all in the hospital for a week and busy with the funeral, I did not feel like cleaning at all. How can I go back to my regular schedule? And I can I get my older 3 kids involved in it too ?

  544. Can you tell me more about your steam mop? I need to buy one. I have a chronic lower back I just and classic mopping is so hard on my back.

  545. you are amazing!

  546. I totally had the same issue with one of guest rooms. It got to the point where I had a small space to sit and work, with craft supplies piled up on either side. Our kitchen table was also overtaken by projects. We converted the guestroom last spring. It was so worth it! I can’t wait to see how you do yours!

  547. What steam mop do you use. I don’t see it on your Amazon page.

    1. Yes, that’s my question also. Please let us know what brand and where to get your steam mop.

  548. 💕

  549. The cluttered area tells a story makes alot of sense. Thank-you.

  550. Needed this today ❤️ thank you

  551. As a working mother of 3 i can get alittle side tracked on deep cleaning but i do have my everyday clean ups or chores i like to call them. I make sure my kitchen is picked up and my bath room because those are the two places in my house that we are in the most😆. You have definitely motivated me this morning. While hubbys and work and the kids are in school im going to try to tackle one room to deep clean. Thank you for the motivation!!!

  552. I noticed that you cleaned up a lot of your children’s toys. Do they clean up after them selves?

  553. Hello! I think my favorite part of this video is the laughter of a child. I needed it. You have a beautiful home. I’m tired from how fast you move though. Lol.
    Ok , so I need tips please. I’m disable and am in pain and fighting fatique daily. I have fibromyalgia. I live in a small 1 bdrm apartment. I have so much stuff. I’ve kept 3 boxes by my front door for years. #1. Donate #2. Trash #3. Find it a home. It’s overwhelming. It’s just me doing it. Any tips on where to start? 😞. I’ve joined a couple dump n go crockpot channels. That is helpful. Thank you and God Bless

    1. @sandy hester your welcome dear.

    2. @Beverly Rhoten thank you so much

    3. I have IBS and tend to have no energy when my IBS acts up and sometimes cleaning is hard what I’ve found that works for me is just trying to work on one thing each week. Kitchen one week bathrooms another and so on. I can’t imagine what pain you go through but I hope you can find something that works for you. Know your not alone in this and if you ever need someone to talk to I’m here 😀

  554. I too have a spare bedroom that no one ever sleeps in and it is a dumping ground for crafts. I can’t wait to see what you do with your spare bedroom, I need ideas

  555. This kinda motivated and depressed me at the same time 😩🤣

  556. Yard sell. Will help. Donate to good will also.😉

  557. Omg I freaking love you!! Please be my friend.

  558. 😲 love it. I have a 3 year old at home and I try to clean while she sleeps… Even though sometimes I feel too tired to clean my home! Cleaning also gives me more energy and satisfaction. I feel great after… This video helped me understand how to clean fast , clean good and have fun… Thanks for all your videos….

  559. I love this video! It’s very inspiring, and motivating. My excuse still remains- I wish i had something to clean to. Your house is beautiful, and cleaning it up reveals that. My house is organised clutter, and hopes and dreams… cleaning it isn’t super satisfying, because it is a reminder of how unhappy i am with the “style” of it. I know it isn’t a good reason for having a messy home, but it exists none-the-less. I try to offset the feeling by having less stuff (which i truly love, having less stuff), but sometimes it only makes a big empty space bigger and emptier. It’s fun and refreshing to watch your videos though, as you save our household a lot of money. 🙂 Pardon my first world problems whinge… Contentment is the real issue for me, obviously 😛 but hey, we are all human… we live and we learn. 🙂 x

  560. OMG, love the baseboard tip!!! 🤯

  561. Elizabeth Gilbert’s clip was moving. I tend to be a profectionist, & her words was just what I needed. Thanks for sharing & giving us the motivation we need.

  562. I use to work at a deparment store, when we closed for the day, each department was to be zoned (cleaned up, straightened) by the designated employees of those departments. I thought this could work at home as well. So when my kids were younger, before we went to bed I would have them “zone” their area, the older kids had bigger areas, the smaller ones usualy had to pick up their toys, etc. IT was always great to wake up to a decluttered home and the evening was always fun and enlightening to watch my kids tell each other it was time to zone and see who could do it the fastest. I’ve used a lot of methods over the years for getting everyone to pitch in, and that was one of the better ones. I apprecate the 80/20 rule, I wish I had this when I was a young mom with small children, it would have saved me a lot of stress. I enjoy your channel, thanks for the inspiration!

  563. That Elizabeth Gilbert clip was deeply moving! I know perfectionism is rooted in sin but she explained it in a way I have never heard before. It is actually fear in disguise and now I see that so clearly.

  564. My biggest issue is that my family and I don’t clean up after ourselves and then in a blink of an eye, the whole house is a disaster. Thank you for the motivation.

  565. Great right to the heart❤️

  566. Thank you so much for this! It’s nice to see people being real. For the past two weeks I’ve been going through this exactly! Extremely Depressed and everything is a mess but by the time I get home from work I don’t want to do anything.

  567. I liked this a lot! Thanks for showing real life messes!
    Questions: Have you had problems with wreaths wilting and sagging from sitting in a hot garage? I live In the South, too. I have some that have sagged over the years, even though I know they are designed to be outside.
    Also, can we get an update on the painted cabinets?? How are they holding up? ask because I want to save up and do this with our honey oak cabinets. I have lived in a rental with painted kitchen cabinets before (non-professional, I believe). They either did not prep well, or didn’t seal it, because the most used spots were worn off.

  568. I love your video!! It so happens that today My husband asked me if I need a maid to come clean my house I kindly said I need a daddy-sitter. He took care of the baby while I was cleaning and cooking. It felt great to see most of my home clean 😀. Your videos just showed me that I am not the only one with a crazy home.

  569. I love your honesty, I feel right at home. ♡

  570. The author quote really hit me hard. I have been stalling on many projects because “it won’t be perfect” but i think I’m just scared of failing at my own ideas.

  571. woo hoo!! a charging team that will not yield! lions are STILL undefeated!

    for me, a tidy home means it’s easier to keep it clean. i love that i don’t have to run around tidying and cleaning before someone comes over, and when my house is clean and tidy, i am less stressed. i find clutter very stressful. that said, i know that my challenge is paper clutter – whether that’s mail, work paperwork i’ve brought home from the office, graduate schoolwork, etc. – and i have to work to stay on top of it.

  572. Love it, my house is a big mess right now 😭😭

  573. Thanks for this! I so struggle with doing this while my kiddos are underfoot. Last project resulted in my boys letting the cat out of the house and then running after him while I was picking up their bathroom! All boys were quickly rounded up though! 🤣 Add me to the list of inquiring minds about the plungers!!

  574. Thank you so much for this, i needed this!!

  575. Great tips 🙂

  576. I would like to see you do a cleaning motivation for people that have physical limitations. I have chronic pain and I can hardly move to take care of myself let alone my house and I have no one to depend on.You’re right things to spiral out of control

  577. I really love watching your videos . Keeps me motivated always 😊 Thankyou for inspiring us . God Bless you and your family . ☺️
    Love from PH 🇵🇭🇵🇭🇵🇭

  578. 2:45 My baseboards will finally get cleaned! 😀

  579. Just 2 min into the video – Go Lions? Detroit?

  580. You’re home is beautiful!!! 💓

  581. The perfection message is everything

  582. I would like some ideas on and clothes clutter omg..

  583. Single mom, three jobs, disabled daughter, therapies….I look at our apartment and I want to go to bed lol

    1. @Beverly Rhoten thank you so much!

    2. You can do it mom ! I don’t know you but you and your family are in my heart tonight.

  584. I so needed this! Thank you for the inspiration and the validation that I am allowed to just be ❤️❤️

  585. GO LIONS!

  586. Your voice is so pleasant. Very ASMR

  587. Your videos are always so positive and helpful. Thank you! I will always take more cleaning and organizing tips and hacks.

  588. Pretty please, where can I get the blue basket @5:11

  589. Loved this cleaning video. Honestly, you motivated me to get into cleaning myself. I’d really love it if you checked out my video 🙂

  590. It was just refreshing to see your mess. We typically believe that all organizers have perfect homes, but perfection is a lie lol. Your home is beautiful!

  591. Thank you. I will probably have to watch this over a couple time for the kick in my butt. This video makes me feel a little better about myself. I have been taking care of my mother for about 20 years now my sister is sick she has been give less then a year to live, if she does not receive two transplants. I just got a promotion at work and my whole summer has been taken up by sickness. I have done close to nothing to my house, I don’t have dust bunnies I have dust rabbits everywhere. Last weekend I had a chance to mow my lawn (back yard the first time in two months. I got rained on (drizzled) 5 different time. I’m just a hot mess. But your video makes me feel like less of a failure. I can do this……. thank you…. many hugs…

  592. did you make those 3 mirrors??

  593. This was really well done and motivational!!!

  594. loved your video! beautiful home! you’re in great shape too!! Thanks! motivated!

  595. Would that steam mop work on ceramic tile?

  596. Great Video, Kathryn❤Thanks, For Being Transparent👍

  597. Thank you for fitting that encouraging word in…. Much needed

  598. Thank you for reminding me that I have a stem mop. I had somehow forgotten about it. And I love love love the baseboard hack!!!! 🙃🙃🙂🙂🙂

  599. Wow. I watch you often but honestly this is the best one yet. I have been dealing with depression and no motivation. Stuff piling up in a beautiful workspace that I would have killed for five years ago. Your message of it not working for me hit home. I’m about to jump on it and have that beautiful workspace I always dreamed of….and be more productive Because of it. Thank you!!!

  600. My son is the same way when I’m making the bed! He wants to play under the sheets lol

  601. I want to quote one of my inspirations, Mel Robbins, who accurately states that motivation is ‘garbage’. If you wait to feel like doing something, chances are, you won’t. So in those cases, you can use the 5 second rule; simply count backwards from 5, as in 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, and then, you physically move, and do what ever it is you don’t feel like doing. Once you start doing, you are more likely to keep doing it. So next time you aren’t motivated, remember to count 5-4-3-2-1, and do it anyway! 😊💪🏼

    1. Thank you for that! That will help me enormously!

    2. I love Mel! She’s so right. I’m still working on using the 5 second rule.

    3. I’ve been doing this without even knowing it and it works!

    4. Seema Prasad yes love this!

    5. I force myself to address the thing that stresses me out the most, first. Then the big relief makes it easier to do the others.

  602. Omg this has helped me become motivated to start cleaning! And I almost cried😅

  603. Thank you for teaching me about reframing and figuring out what it s that motivates me.

  604. Without any kids, yeayy.. Its realy easy to clean.

  605. Woohooo!

  606. I love your videos!! Thank you!!❤❤

  607. What if the “science” doesn’t work for you? I literally DESPISE cleaning, I would rather do anything other than clean. Tell me to clean up or put your head into this guillotine… I’m sticking my head in there.

    I often feel like or people try to make me feel like I’m a failure as a woman.

    I don’t like kids, I never wanted them I’m told my choice to not have kids was selfish. I’m not into cleaning or tidying. There are literally a million things i’d rather be doing.

    Of course I do clean, but no endorphins kick in for me. I hate it from start to finish.

    I believe that the science doesn’t apt to us all. People are made differently.

    If my home is cluttered you are coming here to see me right? Be sure if you came to visit the house, you’re not welcome, my house doesn’t want visitors!

    So what if my coffee tables more books than table… Don’t like to see it? Go home n enjoy your practically perfect insta+home. So expect organised mess if you visit me!

    Please tell me in not the only one… am I broken?

  608. OMG I love you! That quote had me in tears. Thank you so much for this inspiration and the reminder that we can just be.

  609. Thanks for the inspo 💕

  610. These are my exact problems! Thank you so much for posting this. I’m I overwhelmed in my space with books, craft supplies and clothes. And I have a craft room that I want to be a bedroom but I can hardly walk in now lol. Thanks for the encouragement and insight 🙂

  611. Noticed a lot of trays. How many do you have?

  612. I really like the speak person you had it’s good to know these things and to keep in mind that life happens 😉

  613. Do you still do essential oils for cleaning? Noticed pledge can. Great video!!!

  614. Your home is so basic….I’d rather live in a mess than some corporation pottery barn inspired interior designed home. That hurts me more than dirty diapers

  615. By far the best clean with me I’ve ever watched

  616. Wow! That is motivational! Now I gotta talk to my lazy butt to get off the couch!!! 🤣🤣

  617. Omg the perfectionist thing was an epiphany!!! 😍😍😍

  618. Thank you! What steam mop do you use?

  619. ! Thank you so much!!

  620. 80/80 percent rule is something I need to work towards… I set myself up for failure by thinking i need to have everything needs be 100%!

    Where did you get that big mirror you were cleaning? Is that the one you made?

  621. Enjoyed it. Thanks a lot.

  622. positive

  623. Thank you xoxo

  624. Use a paper towel or clean wash cloths under those tooth brushes to collect the water. Change often.Use a blower on the garage floor!!

  625. Did you say GO LIONS!!???

    What state do you live in??

  626. I have two herniated discs and one ruptured. Fell into depression. It’s so hard to not only feel well enough to clean but able to do it without pain knocking me down. I clean two rooms and I’m down for two days. Or I have a flare up, and I’m down for a couple of days and my house goes to a wreck. (4 kids, 4 fur babies + husband). Vicious cycle.

  627. Thanks so much for sharing…we have just moved houses and you have no idea how much I have been cleaning and clutter clearing over the last few days…I have muscle pain from it, so thanks for giving me another boost to get today done as well…May I ask, how long did this clean take in “real life”, as these videos are always sped up? Thanks so much

  628. Where you get that qute from Elizabeth Gilbert What is the name of the book? Kathryn thank you for your motivation!!

  629. I would suggest when you redo your guest bedroom maybe get a murphy bed that converts to a desk. Yes they make those.

  630. We are grateful you are here aswell.. really needed this today… Thank you💕

  631. I like the code on your mug “A done something is better than a perfect nothing” Thank you for such a motivating video.

  632. Clean my yard with me. I’m forever killing weeds

  633. Yay!! Loved your video! Go Lions! #OnePride

  634. I love you for this. This is exactly what I needed right now! Thank you so so much!

  635. I’ve watched many of your videos I’m a 66 year old widow I’m a mom & grand-mom I brought my family up in an immaculate home I was alone for two years after my husband passed I was suppose to be cleaning & getting rid of stuff so I can sell my place to move but instead I have serious health issues So Instead I made my two spare rooms into a sewing room & the other into a craft room which I never got to enjoy Then while my health got bad my home got worse I have never lived in such a dirty mess It bothers me I hate even waking up I love a clean home & this is depressing me I need to get rid of so much so I can move cause I can’t afford to live here anymore
    When you did this video you make it look so easy Sure when I was younger & in good health it was easy for me too Plus now my oldest son moved back home temporarily & sleeping on the couch in my living room With all his clothes stored in there So now this is upsetting me even more
    Somebody like me needs an honest to god realistic video at normal speed showing me how to get my home back into the cleanest organized home the way I always had it & can do it now at my age Maybe also to find help to get some things updated that would be free or for a very small amount of money cause I don’t have the finances since I’m in a fixed income once a month So when the time comes it will show nice so I can sell it & get some money Then I can move on to a better rest of my retired life
    I’ve never lived like this even as a child & it’s making me sick
    I know I’m asking a lot but you wanted comments & I’m being truthful about my situation I know you probably can’t help me but you should know that everyone isn’t as young as you are & it’s not as easy as it is for you You seem to be a very sweet girl & very creative but we are all different & I don’t believe in sugar coating it Keep your creative videos coming I do enjoy them Have a great day

  636. I was dead tired, but I got up and cleaned the sink/mirror after watching 1/2 of this video. Thank you! 👍🏽🏆

  637. I’ve watched this four times already. Thank you so much for posting it’s exactly what I needed to hear.

  638. Loved it! Thanks 🤗

  639. Great video! Near tears realizing just how much of me is being a perfectionist. Slowly learning to let go and just be:) thank you so much

  640. My two favorite channels are this one, and Ramon at home,you guys have great ideas ❤️

  641. I can’t even tell you how badly I needed to see and hear everything in this video. Thank you.

  642. Thanks for sharing, I find it next to impossible to clean my craftroom!!!

  643. I really like your nightstands.

  644. The way you break down cleaning is very easy for me to understand how to tackle my house. My kitchen and kids room are almost always cluttered. Im gonna get the cleaning bug gping now.

  645. Thank you for the inspiration. I have been neglecting my house because of work and feeling overwhelmed. My husband and I are often away from home on the weekends to visit our elderly fathers who live in different states.

  646. ♥️

  647. Question time! 😁 so in our new (first) home we have tile floor everywhere, every room, with grout…. I have tried many cleaners but none seem to really clean the grout. Any tips? ☺️

    Omg I love my steam mop! And definitely gonna try the broom rag and spray for the base boards!!

    1. Lahary Ravuri the purple Shark it’s sold at Walmart

    2. Tattoomama_11 What steam mop do you use?

  648. OMG – I am at 5.13 through this video and absolutely dumbfounded by the woman speaking about perfection …. she could have been talking about me and my need to strive for perfection and therefore not do much at all – thank you so much xx

  649. I love watching your channel.. you make me motivated to get up and clean my house… Please keep making more videos!!!! Have a great day!

  650. I need to save this video and watch as needed, like a prescription for the overwhelming need to be perfect. Thank you!

  651. Your are the best
