Ask a Clean Person: Let's All Make … Our Beds. And Then Take a Nap.

Welcome to the final installment of March Madness, Clean Person-style, a monthlong project we've been calling Let's All Make … Our Beds. It's just what it sounds like: we all made our beds for the entire month of March. The fun carried over to Twitter, where I tweeted regularly about all things bed-related and we used the hashtag #LAMOB to spread the joy far and wide!

Whoa wow whoa, we sure had some fun this month didn't we??? How's everyone feeling about things? Pretty good, I'm guessing, based on what my Twitter @ replies have looked like! And I'm feeling super great too because this has been a whole [...]

Ask a Clean Person: The Uncluttering

At the risk of utterly embarrassing myself by not adopting a more restrained or salty or hip posture, I'm going to say exactly what I'm feeling and thinking about today's post, which is an update on how our friend with the impossibly messy room fared in her attempt to tackle the clean-up: you guys, I am so freaking excited about this reveal!!!
