Keeping the house organized and decluttered with LONG work hours?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm trying to do the Flybaby thing but honestly, I don't know if I can keep it up. And the main thing is that I WOH and I am out of the house for 10 hours including commute times. by the time I get home, it's all I can do to scrap together an easy dinner, let alone clean or declutter.

DH WAH (we don't have kids yet) and although he does some cleaning, etc. while I'm gone, he often works all day and in the evening, too, so it's more up to me.

But I'm so tired - any tips?

Ohhh that used to so be me. I WOH'ed about 12 hrs (13 with commute) 5 days a week at that point. It was all I could do to fall into bed!

Things I did were to clean on weekends, decrease the amount of "stuff" so less clutter, cook on weekends for the whole week (I used the heck out of my freezer) and had a place for everything, so stuff didn't pile up waiting to be sorted/find a home (I'm thinking of things like the mail here.) It worked relatively well - although the thing that worked the best was finding my current job that allows me to be home much more.

I've been there!
