    Oh my gosh I love your personality so much! You are so fun to watch! This was such a helpful video. Thanks so much! I feel like you didn’t say anything that I haven’t heard but your perspective and way of communication just made it so simple to understand. Can’t wait to start watching more of your videos 😊 I just subscribed!

    You have such a great passion for helping others about something you yourself have accomplished and that is a wonderful thing. It's just that you have a problem with diarrhea of the mouth where you talk a lot of garbage wherein you lose the listener with all your tangents and rambling nonsense. For example, 2 minutes and 41 seconds before you get to point number one and most of that is just rambling, babbling, useless blather. I only stayed on to watch out of interest in your babbling problem as opposed to the subject matter itself which actually brought me here in the first place. Sorry I'm so blunt but I hope you take this as something to work from because you are hiding your awesomeness under a lot of useless, distracting, disruptive babbling and rambling.

    1.5 minutes in and I relate to this too much. I just got my first case of roaches, compliments of my next door neighbors, and it's the kick in the pants I need to finally get my shit together. Hoping this helps.

    I love how you take a minimalist approach to everything. It's practical, effective,concrete and simple.Thank you so much for this.I subscribed to your video bc I think this is much more helpful than just randomly watching videos where I admire Monica's perfectionist quirkiness. :)

    I have 2 teenagers living in my home. I cannot keep clutter out of my life with people dropping dirty socks, leaving their books and hoodies everywhere.

    So happy to have found your channel! I’m feeling so overwhelmed by our tiny one bedroom apartment. I feel like no matter how much I clean it’s never actually clean! I spend most of the day when I do clean, just picking shit up off the floor or counter tops and not even getting to organize it! Ugh it’s awful :( and depressing me

    I spent hours and hours every single day for my household and it was still messy!!!! But our flat has only 3 rooms plus kitchen plus bathroom. Thats it!!!???
    It was a desaster and I didnt know why. Do my 2 young kids mess the house up so badly??? Whats going on here?
    Until one day the doctor told us my husband has most likely demencia.
    After he left for hospital everything changed. I dumped so much waste and stuff he collected. No on messed up everything anymore. So I was able to organize everything.
    So much work has been done since then. But still there is so much to do! Took me half a year by now.
    And soon he will come back. I fear the day he is over here again.

    My way to keep a clean and organised home is to have people come over every weekend or on dinners on weekdays. I even invite critics who r gonna judge my housekeeping skills. This process keeps my house clutter in check throughout the week and has let me connect to friends n family which we so much try avoiding but now it leaves me feeling so gud. My cooking skills hv improved tremendously and somehow now I hv d motivation to care for my garden as well. Though its exhausting sometimes but I find this is the perfect way to connect with everyone, hv a clean & organised home and lots of laughter & peace.

    GOOT TIP if I'm really and truly tired or unwell. I rinse all the foods off all the plates in boiling hot water and stack the plates to wash them next day. That way the plates scrub up so clean so quickly.. And tea cups coffee mugs I
    Rinse them out in bio,ing hot water, then let the hot water stand all night in every cup, to stop a dirty brown ring appearing inside the cups. Pots Pans I rinse off the food them scrub them out later on or the next day, that's my routine every night even if I'm going to wash up 2 hrs later. Food must be rinsed off all items. Yes I'm OCD hate
    dirty stuff hanging around..

    This is the first video of yours I've ever watched. I'm what my friends and family call a "clutter-monster" (I'm one of those people who amazes everyone in their life by living in what *looks* like piles, but miraculously knows where everything is). And while what I do teeeechnically works for me, I am not just a clutter-monster... I am also a social-monster! I love to entertain, and knowing where everything is isn't enough there! So I'm working on the "looks like piles" aspect of my habits... and I just have to say, you are so cute and bubbly and cheery and you're perfect and I love you. You actually get me PUMPED to start tidying up my house! Haha thanks for being so relatable and genuine.
