In the past couple of weeks, my life has been absolutely crazy for a number of reasons (mainly due to my big work event). When I get too busy, my home often reflects the level of chaos/stress/etc in my life. In other words, it becomes a complete mess.
It got so bad last week that I decided to go all out and hire help (for the record, I had never had my home professionally cleaned before). Yesterday, I cleaned my entire place, had professional help from two people for three hours, and brought four big bags of clothing and shoes to Goodwill.
I feel much better and am relieved to have my home clean and less cluttered. Photos below - just for proof!
