    I'll join you. I need to make much more consistent progress in decluttering and organizing, and need to work on the cleaning aspect, too.

    I had planned to join a few challenges here this year but afraid to get in over my head and not live up to them cause I've spread myself too thin....that said, this is one challenge I really need to join. My house is clean for the most part but I have way too much stuff and the constant putting away of the junk leaves no real time for the deep cleaning.....So... if someone will tell me the rules then I'll jump in too.

    Tami, don't worry about rules or spreading yourself too thin, etc...the important thing is that we encourage each other to make our homes a more pleasant place to be and enjoy! Do what you can when you can as you can.....every little bit is a success and if you fall off the wagon you can pick yourself up and jump right back in!

    I'll jump in. I just started a get-a-home-project-done-a-month challenge, so this fits right in!

    I want to be part of this too. When I got up today, I didn't like my house at all. Oh, I don't mean the whole house, but my kitchen and family room leave alot to be desired. It felt like I was looking at it for the 1st time, and it's far from dirty, but could be better. It seems to lack that nice coziness the rest of the house seems to have. I was "uncomfortable" in my own place. I think it needs re-organization, deeper cleaning, and that "personal touch". Strange, because I usually do okay decorating wise.

    So I'm jumping in, head 1st!

    I'll join you! It seems like my house is never perfect...Whose is? It's hard finding a balance between family and housework; I'll do my best to find a healthy balance.

    Me, Me, Me! I want in! I have made great progress the last few months, but with a move in my near future, I really need to get my house cleaned, organized and decluttered as much as possible! And I hope to keep it that way after the move! I hate the feeling of a messy/dirty home!
