Being the creative person that I am I find myself making huge messes when "creating"...The problem is that I do not like messes, so here is where this tip comes in.
I learned this from a kids book as a child and it has always served me well.
Step #1....make your bed (or lay a blanket on the floor if it is in a living area) put EVERYTHING that is out of place on it (If you are doing the kitchen put everything on the table)
Step #2.....once everything is on your bed vacuum, dust, and polish.
Step #3.....separate everything into piles, throw away the trash and put everything else away.
TA DA....now you have a clean room in 3 easy steps...
Now go and sit back and enjoy your clean home!
