Cleaning Strategies for the Naturally Messy Mom (Ep 022) // Candi Kidd of @operation_organization

Cleaning Strategies for the Naturally Messy Mom __ Candi Kidd

Since I was a little girl, I have left a “wake” behind me everywhere I go–cupboards left open, shoes kicked off in the middle of the hallway, and spills on the kitchen counter that should’ve been wiped up immediately but I didn’t even notice them.

Luckily, I have a very wise friend who is teaching me better habits.  Candi Kidd (who was our guest in Episode 001!) teaches moms who are naturally messy like me how to keep their lives more tidy and orderly.  And her tips can really help any mom, even if you are naturally a neat-freak (P.S. you amaze me), because we all live with children…and children bring chaos and confusion along with them everywhere they go.

Join Candi and me as we dive into these three takeaways:

 

1) Be a detective to find and then solve the messy spots in your home.

2) Lower the “activation energy” it takes to get started with cleaning.

3) Focus on completing one J.O.B. per day.
