Cleaning Sucks: An Unf*ck Your Habitat Guided Journal for Less Mess, Less Stress, and a Home You Don't Hate (Paperback)
I suck at cleaning. I get too busy, or bored, or overwhelmed, or [insert excuse here]. That's why I loved this book — the prompts and challenges helped me work through some of my hangups, plus provided the motivation and accountability I need to actually get things done. There are also super helpful checklists to keep you on track for tasks that are infrequent, and a room-by-room guide. Hoffman even addresses chronic illness, and how to cope on difficult days. If you're looking for Marie Kondo-level help, this is not it. But if you could use some adjustments day-to-day, for whatever reason, this is truly a great start.— Amber
Let go of perfect and embrace good enough!
