I don’t know how you feel about TV shows, but I have to admit that lately, they have been my secret guilty pleasure. How did this happen? Well, recently I’ve been in a decluttering mode and, since I was up for home cleaning suggestions, I’ve decided to give the specialized TV shows a try. Now that all the spring cleaning and all the decluttering has been dealt with, to be honest, I’m glad I did, and I am sure I will continue to tune in for more feasible advice. For me, the hook is the fact that they are both entertaining but also really practical as they provide sufficient doable tips and tricks.
So, today I want to share with you my thoughts on two helpful TV shows that have given me a lot of food for thought when it came to thinking about how the home cleaning and organizing processes should go.
The first TV show I want to talk to you about is called Clean House, and I was introduced to it by my friend Mary. From what I could gather, this is a pretty popular show so I am quite sure you must have heard of it at one point. If not, you should know that it centers around a team of home makeovers lead by Niecy Nash, the host, who help clean the homes of people that have problems with clinging on to just unnecessary stuff. What I particularly like about it is the fact that it struck a chord with me, as I too like to get attached to all kind of useless junk. Since watching it, decluttering has been easier to handle, and I managed to get rid of some stuff that was in my way but I couldn’t throw out because I felt that they meant something to me. This show, apart from home great home décor tricks, has taught me that stuff is just stuff and that you shouldn’t make your life about owning things.
Secondly, if you love cleaning, you should not miss the next episode of Clean Sweep. I have to admit that, at first, I had my doubts about whether I would like it or not but, to be completely honest, it grew on me! Fun and funny, I feel like this show shows you just how easily you can do over a room with little effort and in so little time! Yes, it is true that when you get down to cleaning and reorganizing it is just you against the room and there’s no team of experts guiding you every step. However, I feel like you can really gain a lot of home know-how from watching it. Another aspect that I appreciate about it is the fact that it doesn’t give me that feeling I get when I watch over budgeted home cleaning TV shows and therefore, there’s something about it that makes me feel like it is genuine.
Well, that’s about it. These are my TV show recommendations for you. Be sure to check them out next time you feel like in need of motivation or inspiration before “cleaning season”!
