Clutter is everywhere! I have a dd turning 4 and a dd who's 18mos, and they are picking up things and depositing them somewhere else in the house all day long!!!! Where do I begin? I love having a clean, spotless house. But all the forces are working against me here ... ahhh!!! Not to mention, as soon as I start making headway on a project, I get sidetracked by a child who is hungry, or who wants to nurse... help!

Mama to dd born 7/2005, dd born 12/2007 and dd born 11/2009.

My advice is to just resign yourself to the fact that keeping house is a constant endeavor. It will never end.

I like the idea of doing 15 minutes here and 15 minutes there as you can throughout the day. Pick a room (or part of a room) and work for as long as you can - and with little ones, 15 consecutive minutes might be too much to ask for.

Whatever you do, don't get discouraged because you can't make your house spotless. Just working on it for small chunks of time throughout the day will make a difference.
