Soror Posted January 30, 2011 Share Posted January 30, 2011 I have been following MM since mid Dec and last night I had 18 people over for dinner. In past times I would have spent all week cleaning and the day of the event I would have worked until the last minute and likley not have enough time for a shower. Well, I did my normal tasks all week as far as cleaning the only extra tasks I did were cleaning my doors. The day of the party I had my tasks done by 9:30 then I spent the rest of the day having time to myself, playing w/ the kids, reading etc. I spent about 15 min putting something in the crockpot and then from 4-5p putting the soup on- company came at 5pm and for once I was cool and collected and not worried and frazzled. It is worth it just for that! Now, the house isn't perfect but pretty darn clean. Afterwards it didn't take much to put it back together since I have also spent so much time decluttering and simplifying. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
