How Often Do You Clean Your Room/ House?

I don't mean daily stuff like vacuuming the floor or dusting things. I mean rearranging your desk, throwing away the unwanted stuff and such. To be honest, I think my desk is such a mess right now and I don't do the major cleaning very often. I do it only when I need a bit of freshness or when I can't stand looking at my desk *laughs*. What about you? Do you do your major cleaning regularly or when your mood kicks in?

I love to organize but I rarely have the energy to do it so I reorganize when I'm really, really mad and then I'll clean and fix the entire apartment in a matter of hours. It's great to let out that negative energy. Lately I've done minor ogranizing, I try to keep up with it so that I don't have too much to do. My bedroom however, that's a whole other story, lol.

*laughs* My mom does all the cleaning really but she would leave out my room (thanks God!). So my room is basically a war zone!

LOL, that's exactly how I'd describe mine. I don't know why I'm so organized with everything else except my room. I think it's because I have way too many clothes and nowhere to put them all, lol.

So far this year I have rearranged my house twice. I recently reorganized my laundry room, my desk could stand to be reorganized again as well. I redid my filing cabinet a couple of months back and did some spring cleaning. Now I need to do my fall cleaning, but with surgery coming up this week I will be down for about a month from what they say. But usually I do about 3 times a year.

Yes, I agree that my deep cleaning phases come at the changes of the seasons. By the way, thanks for the best response rating! I appreciate it!

Not often enough! Especially not this week. Although I vastly prefer a neat and orderly workspace, sometimes the choice comes down to working or arranging the work space and it is not possible to do both at the same time. So sometimes the work must come first. Sometimes it is not work that comes firt, but rather playing on myLot. There, now you know.

I would say that I do major cleaning about every three months or so, unless it is really driving me crazy then more often. I try and toss things as they accumulate but I need a major overhaul every so often. I almost do it with the change in season. It seems to be when the clutter really starts to get to me.

When I have extra time, I do some major re-arrangements. I do major cleaning every Saturday and do some slight re arrangements. What is important to me is to have a clean house everyday. it should be dust-free.

Hello wondericequeen, I always clean up my room/house as I will get 'headache' whenever I see my house in a mess. When this happens, it will make me lose my mood and sometimes can get angry for no apparent reason *smiles* So to avoid being 'rude' to others, I try to keep my room/house as clean as I could so that I won't have to spring clean once a while!

I am cleaning my room only one a week because I am too busy to my study. BUt every day I always sweep the floor and arrange all the clothes, chair, table and many more to be organize but during Sunday I am going to have a general cleaning with my room. Because when you see your room that is well organize you can feel fresh. I like so much those room that are clean and neat.Because they are so very presentable.Even my room is to small But still I keep cleaning it. Because no matter how small your room is. I like to see my all things that are all well organize,. And i am not shy to invite my friends to go to my room when they go our house because it is clean and allt he things are well organize.

i try to keep my room clean with out too much cleaning. so basically i try to maintain the rooms that i occupy so that i don't' have to clean them later. u know, like putting things back as soon as possible so that nothing piles up, because i've let it pile up before and it would take me hours to fix or clean it up.

I don't also clean my room always. I just clean it if I have time. My room is such a mess. My boyfriend always tells me to clean it but I'm too lazy to clean. I'd rather sleep than clean it. Because there are lots of stuff inside my room and everytime I see those junks I just don't like cleaning it.
