Never. But I think it is great that you are doing this as a necessary first step before decorating!

I haven't even started yet. I actually just got all my Halloween decor taken down and put away. But I hear ya about getting everything in tip top shape before "dragging" more "stuff" into the home. We have been adding on so we have a mess outside...thank goodness we haven't started knocking walls inside the home down yet.

Yes, I just cleaned our family room yesterday. I plan on cleaning the dining room, family room, kitchen, and my room this weekend. Takes a lot of work!

star I like to get the house cleaned too

especially before Christmas. It is nice to have things cleaned up thoroughly before decorating. Makes everything sparkle more!

Not yet, but I'll be starting to do that soon. I just can't put up my tree and decorate until my house is perfectly clean. I blame it on my mother...with five kids, Christmas time was the only time she could get us all to willingly pitch in to clean. She would tell us that we couldn't decorate until the house was clean and then, on Christmas Eve, she would tell us that Santa wouldn't come unless the house was clean.

To this day, my sister and I cannot decorate unless the house is spotless and neither of us can go to bed Christmas Eve until our houses are clean.
