WFMW - Motivation to Clean House

EDIT: My wife Harmony posted this, not me. Another case of mistaken Blogger identity

When the house is getting messy, there's one surefire way to ensure it gets clean - invite someone over. I have found that keeping my home full of guests also serves the purpose of keeping the house company-clean.

And the converse is also true: the times when I know we won't be having visitors are the times when my house is the messiest.

Just another reason why hospitality is a very good thing. It works for me!

    Yep! If you want your house REALLY clean...make an appt for a social worker to swing by the house....the 1st time we did that I cleaned out places in my house I didn't know existed lol. I then made a POINT to open all my closets to show her how clean they were. She said "um..If your kids are not sleeping in your closets I really don't need to see them."
