So, I recently stumbled upon Fly Lady's website. Well, actually, I was facebook stalking and someone mentioned that they used her website to help her keep her house clean and organized and I went to it. It is exactly what I have been looking for. She provides steps - actually called baby steps to help you become super organized and clean.
The first step is to shine your sink. Even though the rest of your house may look a hot mess - you should clean and shine your sink first. It sounds weird, but it does work. Once you see your kitchen sink looking so clean and fresh, it makes you feel like the rest of your house has hope.
