I Have a Messy House

Because Of My Parent's Constant Construction 81 People

    I was doing so great at keeping my house clean,

    then I fell into a depression and lost any focus or motivation to clean my house. Now I'm forced to clean up my house because it's a huge mess and I know it's not right to live like this. I've already started on it. In fact, I'm just taking a break at the moment to write this...

    Trying to clean up. Started a couple of days ago

    and so far I am keeping at it, we shall see how long my motivation lasts, but I still have so much to go. I have excuses for how our house got so messy: we work full time and have no time to clean up, we have small kids. But today as I was putting a bunch of papers from 2007...

    My house is a ******* disaster.

    My husband is the biggest slob. His idea of cleaning up is to shove random things in drawers or closets. I cannot do everything on my own and my husband acts like a ******* child when asked to help. Our three year old is so messy. I don't know how to get on top of this. I...

    I Have a Messy House and I Think I Know Why.....

     I use to clean my house weekly, doing the carpets, the bathrooms, the kitech, mopping, cleaning the mirrors, dusting, etc... I never had a problem letting someone in uninvited because of a mesy house. I was almost a neat freak, but not too anal about it. LOL Then one night...

    What's Wrong With Me?

    Hi, I'm new and I haven't really read anyone else's posts yet, so I'm not sure if I'm way off base, but I just need to talk to someone--so I hope it's okay to talk about my problems here.  I titled my post "What's wrong with me?" because I don't think it should be...

    All Anyone Can Do.

    Clean it up-- I've lived with college roommates, single working men, and my wife of many years, her sister & brother-in-law, as well as other living arrangements.  All you can do is keep your own space cleaned up, and gripe and growl about the dirty slobs in your environment...

    Tragedy & Abuse Activated My Hoarding

    I was surprised to find out that hoarding is a form of obsesive compulsive disorder. It also can be from traumatic events or abuse- Mine is from both. I used to have a perfectly clean and non cluttered house and even my clothes were arranged in rainbow color order. My son got...

    I Am Sick of It..

    Our whole house just needs a wrecking ball in my eyes. I'm sick of fixing it. Sick of moving **** around and the place is highly unsanitary or clean. I refuse to clean it due to the fact that they try to make me do it all and not only that, but I don't feel like cleaning a house...
