Are You a Binge Cleaner or a Daily Tidier?

Are You a Binge Cleaner or a Daily Tidier?

One of our New Year's Resolutions was to break the binge cleaning habit and start tidying our home daily. We've tried again and again to be vigilant. (If only our place was as tidy as Paola and John's above.) Unfortunately, it's just not happening for us...

Every Saturday, we end up doing a clean sweep of the apartment, then letting things slide during the week. When the time comes to tidy up at night, the energy's just not there. We're thinking about accepting our habits the way they are, sticking with the Saturday cleaning schedule, and letting go of the desire to be something we're not. Maybe one day we'll break the habit and become good daily tidiers, but for now it seems to be just our of our reach.

We're wondering about the cleaning habits of other readers. Are you a binge cleaner or do you tidy up daily? Has anyone made the leap from messy weekdays to everyday cleaning?
