(for me, these suggestions only work temporarily, but there is enough variety that I usually can find a method for the moment)
- Picking up 100 things ... this works because I get a little OCD about counting to 100.
- using a timer: ie. 10 minutes kitchen, 10 minutes bathroom etc. or 15 minutes kitchen, 15 minutes other bad place, 15 minutes kitchen and repeat until happy or distracted by another knitting/crocheting project or continuing to browse through 289 pages of patterns for flowers on ravelry.
-Speed Cleaning technique: requires an apron, and a very specific system, which theoretically gets easier and quicker with practise ( I haven't practised regularly enough yet to test this theory)
- wearing a fitbit or pedometre and cleaning until I reach 1000 steps (or whatever I predetermine)
- inviting cleany friends over for dinner ( This one works but I rarely do it, too stressful)
- putting my house on the market, this is the most effective strategy for me but I'm not planning on selling my house for at least the next five years!
- a weekly schedule ... I usually follow this suggestion diligently for an entire week before finding an excuse to abort.

Company is a blessing and a curse - blessing cuz the stuff gets cleaned up finally and curse cuz we worked so hard to clean it can't enjoy the company. I wish I had people that wanted to stop by often without calling (unannounced) for a visit so that I would be forced to keep things tidier! But our house is like the plague, no one ever stops by unannounced and without giving at least 3 hours notice! You would think we had a neon sign posted outside that warns them!
