5. Recycled Interiors

This blog made our list because it emphasizes on something important, a type of cleaning that not only benefits us, but the environment too. We believe that there is no cleaning a cluttered house and where there’s clutter there’s a few things you can do – use, reuse, repurpose, recycle, donate or throw away. In Recycled Interiors, you will be given the opportunity to browse and choose from a number of creative upcycling projects and tips on how to live a more sustainable, frugal and simple lifestyle.

7. Organizing Junkie

Organizing Junkie is the best place for all you OCD freaks out there! You know who you are! If you are anything like Laura you too should be able to get your high from checking out her cleaning and organising tips.

8. The Marathon Mom

Being a homemaker and a mom of 9… yes, you heard it right, 9 kids is definitely not a sprint, but a marathon. On The Marathon Mom you won’t find as many printables and green cleaning recipes, but you will learn a whole lot about homeschooling, keeping fit, being a mum to what is nearly a soccer team and staying organised. As Brandy says herself, feel free to kick off your shoes and stay awhile.

9. Organizing Homelife

What we loved about the Organizing Homelife blog is how seamless Ginny makes it all look – while organising a home and homeschooling four kids, she cleans, organizes, cooks, blogs and completes DIY project like it’s no big deal. If you are anything like her and feel life can’t get any busier, check out her tips and free printables for more inspiration and help in getting everything in good order.

10. Life Your Way

It should come as no surprise that this one had us at the title. Life Your Way is all about conscious living where life doesn’t just happen, but it is what you make it. Mandi is a wife and stay-at-home, homeschooling mom to 6 kids, so if there’s anyone who knows about the challenges of raising kids and keeping a house, life and mind organised, it is her. On Life Your Way, you will find plenty of resources and first-hand tips on cleaning and housekeeping, homeschooling, working from home and life with that many kiddos.

12. I Hate Cleaning

It may come as a surprise that some good advice can come from a person who claims to “hate cleaning”, but it’s sometimes the slobs that come up with the easiest and most enjoyable solutions to sluggish chores. In Lana Jane Fox’s case, you will be taken on a journey from zero interest towards cleaning to love for all things organised. As a young housewife what Lana lacks in experience she makes up in inspiring confessions and interesting stories about her experiences as a newly-wed.

14. Clutter Busting

Brooks has made it his mission to help people remove the clutter away from their lives as well as their souls.

16. Apartment Therapy

We are willing to bet Maxwell was the first ever apartment therapist. Before he created the awesome site on which he shares his decluttering wisdom today, he used to work with clients individually.

17. Mrs. Organised

Another great blog from Oz. Not sure if the pun in the name is intended, but we love it none the less. Sandie loves organising and is a magician at juggling tasks because of it.

Hope we gave you enough useful motivating resources and reads. We don’t clean for the sake of cleaning, except Nate(No offence, mate). We clean and organise  to create a more pleasant environment where we can let our creativity and happiness flourish unhindered. We put things in order to open up space for fun and to save time which can be better spend on the things we love, instead of digging trough piles of stuff looking for our things.
