This is a clean with me style video which hopefully will serve as cleaning and decluttering motivation for you to take on a project like this! Decluttering and parting with stuff can be difficult, but it feels so good to rid yourself of unwanted and unused stuff - and leaves much more space for activities!

We'd love to hear from you - say hello down below!


  • I think this has become my new favorite clean my space video. So inspiring and Chad, you slay me. This was definitely entertaining and educational. It’s gonna help me get motivated to do my office/craft room. Many Thanks.

    • It works ;)

    • kinda sucking up huh? HaHaHa

    • Cut out the articles and put them in a book. Make copies or frame the newspaper articles, those won’t age as well. Recycle what’s leftover after cutting them out. (I’d say scan them and go digital, but technology is always changing. Just go with a good old fashioned scrapbook.)

  • Dear Chad & Melissa, First of all, I LOVE YOU GUYS!!!!!!! Second, my idea for the magazines is this: From each magazine in which Melissa/CMS is featured: Save the front cover, the table of contents, the article that features Melissa/CMS, and the back cover, and organize them into one or more CMS scrapbook(s) like mini-magazines, sandwiching the table of contents and the articles between the front cover and the back cover of each magazine, like a time-line of Melissa Maker/CMS features! If you do this, I'd LOVE to see a video of you both flipping through and showing the results!!! :)

  • Hiiiii

  • Just wanted to say thanks. On a chilly morning when it’s very hard to get the motivation to get up and clean I watch one or two of your videos. It really helps get me in the cleaning mood.

  • you have excellent music taste.

  • Keep

  • What happens when your entire house is clean?

  • Cut out the title of each and glue them all to a cork board or something artsy lol

  • You could cut out the articles that feature you guys or the front page and like put it in Frames like in Kingsman

  • I love this channel so much! I have followed Melissa since 2010 and videos with Chad it is a great surprise. You are a great and funny couple. Love you both!

  • ni

  • It feels so good to have open space and less clutter. You have inspired me to recycle my magazines.

  • Save a digital copy of the magazines. Then with the hard copies make a mosaic

  • Cut out the article's and put them in a book

  • I think you should take some of the specific sections that include her and make a memory board of them and hang it up somewhere

  • What I would personally do is to rip out the specific pages you guys were featured in and out it in a scrapbook or possibly insert them digitally

  • Donate your magazines

  • Who else was worried about his wife hitting her belly on to somthing

  • Get rid of the magazines.


  • Scan in the pages that you're featured in those magazines, and recycle them!

  • Tip for the magazines Melissa was featured in: scan each article and create a nice hardcover photobook through shutterfly.

  • Make a wall with magazine covers as the background. Like instead of painting it or putting wall paper up have the magazine's

  • Where did you get those white bins stacked three high in the corner?

  • If you haven't decided yet then you should just cut out the parts about you.

  • Fraime it

  • I would do a vertical strip collage. Take each page/cover/article of importance and cut into 5-10 vertical strips (depending on preference). Combine all strips and randomly select to paste sidr by side from left to right until all strips are used. You can superimpose and/or gloss and frame it!! Symbolic for how you live your lives. Even though some things may seem messy at first glance, you can see the beauty if you look close enough. ;)

  • I donate old magazines to Pre-K or childcare centers for arts and crafts projects.

  • Hi your the best and I love your videos good job keep it up

  • Save the cover and the article of each mag and 13 the rest.

  • First time watching . Good ideas and entertaining.

  • Frame them and make a gallery wall numerically ordered

  • On the mags, you should keep the front cover and the page(s) with your feature, and frame them :) recycle the rest ;o)

  • I love chads videos !!!! He is halarious! Especially the one you did with getting rid of 50 percent of your clothing. Chad make more ! Also the best part is you don’t do a lot of talking you just show the videos in quick view and you talk while the video is playing I love it so many times people do way too much talking in their videos and they are too long. You are like a real person not so fake like so many other videos. Please make more. Your music selection is cool too my husband loves hall and oats too !

  • Thanks for the video. It will really help me in tackling my attic. It really helped to show where you put and took items. To show your process helped so much. So many show before and after and never show what they did with the stuf. For Melissa's articles in those magazines you cud cut out the article and put it in a scrap book. Make one book and have it as a coffee table book

  • Clip the articles and put them in a those plastic clear binder folder and put them all in a binder. That way you can recycle the magazines but keep the articles in a space in a binder

  • I love this series. I just discovered it, so have no idea how many there are but i hope it continues indefinitely!!!!

    • Also, the kits are probably already sent out huh? And i think you should file the magazines, like files in hanging order. Or you could just rip out the article with Melissa and file that hanging or in a sheet protector and binder

  • Keep

  • Scrapbook the articles in a nice album

  • I think ripping out the pages that she’s featured in and then scrap booking them would be a good idea. That way you can throw away the rest of the magazines and have less clutter

  • You guys have a lot of stuff 😯

  • scrapbook articles made it to magazine, toss the rest.

  • With the magazines, frame the cover and the clippings and get rid of the rest! If framing takes up to much space, make a clipping album.

  • Why do you wear gloves?

  • The magazines: cut out your ad and frame them

  • Do u drive an Audi Q7? Cos my mom does and the boot looks the same

  • Take the magazines to a doctors office to put in waiting room area.

  • I would cut the front face of the magazine and the article from each of them featuring 'Clean My Space", and put them in clear plastic sheet-holders, then place them in a handsome binder. That way you have the article and the magazine/date for posterity.

  • I am thankful to have run across your videos! I have had a bad, last few years trying to start an home based business, two actually, trying to carve in a dating life, and a very rebellious daughter..that’s a balance that’s gotten the best of me and my home. My daughter actually makes and tears up my progress in all areas as a way to tear me down...I’m lost in how to regain my home back, I try to stay away from home as often as I can, just to escape the ruins...and think, I have 3/4s of a year left before she’s 18 and then I can chip away and find my home again...I am actually motivated by watching this type of video and hopefully inspired to start trying again, but it’s hard! At one time, I was almost ocd about cleaning, how in the world did I let her turn me into a lost soul in a junk yard. Thank you, not sure where to start, but at least I’m finding desire and motivation

    • Way to go on getting motivated again Lisa, you're worth it :)

  • Great work!♡

  • You should hang the magazines on the walls for memory

  • Recycle it or give it to someone that wants it

  • Have you thought about making some sort of artwork out it? Like a display case or something? I hate myself for referencing this, but think the graduation caps artwork in the movie Twilight (shoot me now).

  • Just keep the article that Malisa was featured, and make an album.

  • Congrats on your baby!

  • labeling the floor - such a good idea, I was panicking bc i didn't know where to begin bc I didn't even have space for sorting.

  • Can someone tell me what he does as his job

  • The other half of the basement is a sex dungeon

  • Hey Chad, I'd love to see what you done with the basement for yourself!

  • I love this kind of stuff! Motivation for me.

  • Keep them if u really think u should I think u should keep it

  • Scan the cover of each and the feature from each and store in pdf. And if you want to keep the hard copy, cut the cover and the arrival out of each and put in a binder cover and make a binder for all of them.

  • Awesome job!!

  • I think you should clip out where Melissa is featured and make a collage or just store them away nicely, but a collage would look cool.

  • I really think the magazines are worth keeping. It at least the cover and article. Scrap book them or frame the most meaningful issues.

  • Chad you are a very funny guy.

  • Think you could cut out the articles from the magazine and put them into a scrapbook.

  • Do a scapbook or Fram the article then put on display

  • Scrap book

  • Ur basement is nicer than my house

  • Scrap book the magazine memorabilia. Cut out the front page (to remember the issue, month and year) along with the article you had your feature in. It will cut down all the magazine clutter to one simple coffee table scrap book to show off and remember all of your accomplishments.

  • Scrapbook the articles from the magazine and donate the rest to a art place 🤷‍♂️

  • It's actually refreshing to see that you've had skeletons in your closet (basement) too!

  • Auction the mags off to fans, lol.

  • Scrapbook only the articles or frame them

  • Lots of comments urging you to store your magazines digitally, but digital copies can degrade over time. There's also the transfer factor - like going from floppy to CD. Do you really want to do that every time a new medium becomes available? I'd encourage you to keep the print copies if there's any way you can. Go ahead and digitize, but keep the hard copies, too.

  • I would certainly keep them for historical reasons but I would find a way to display them... either frame them or at least put them in plastic to help preserve them.

  • It’s probarlo to late but put a basket in the bath room and put the magazines in there so it can look like a decoration

  • I usually save the article pages I want to keep in a binder and toss the rest of the magazine.

  • Doctor's office will be happy to receive those magazines and you did a great job I wish my hubby did what u do when I was pregoenjoy your daughter girls are always daddy's girl

  • Lol u look so happy as new father to be

  • Congratulations for the baby

  • Cut out the feature in the magazines and make a scrapbook or a shadow box!

  • Nooooo. You did not just do that chad. That was a jump scare at the end. It caught me off guard as I was scrolling through the comments and I just see a face pop up in the dark. I thought another video started playing for a second

  • I would take a picture of each one (the cover and/or the article) and let the physical magazine go. They take up so much space. It is a huge honor to be in all those magazines! Congratulations CMS! I love your channel!

  • You can tear out only the pages she is in and make it one book to hold on to!!!

  • Cut and glue the article to the front of the page , then put the page either in frames or a scrapbook ?

  • Your so modivating inspiring and funny

  • I think for every magazine that you have collected of her you should cut out the whole page(s) with her and scrapbook it into a frame or a bulletin board

  • Place for magazines

  • I say purge the magazines. Assume that clean my space is so huge now that it is simply impractical to keep obtaining a copy or keeping copies. Keep the first feature magazine or ones that really made y’all happy and purge the rest. At the rate you’re growing I wouldn’t keep collecting them and I honestly would only keep the first. Also I’ve really been wanting to try the microfiber cloths!! ;)

  • You’re “feeding” the elephant not eating it, that’s why you have a messy Basement. You’re supposed to *eat* the elephant one bite at a time! 🤣

  • Definitely thought I was the only weirdo who keeps all of my electronics boxes lol.

  • This is a great video. Inspiring and thanks for showing the donation process you followed!

  • more honey do list vids plz, i love them!!

  • I would frame the magazines, makes perfect wall art! Check out Pintrest for inspiration...I know you guys are on there! ;)

  • My basement is much worse than this but I'm changing that rn but I've only managed to work a little at a time and it's only day four and I've only gotten about 1/6th done halp plz

  • I have just had a The Honey-Do List mini binge! Thoroughly enjoying 😄 keep up the good work!

    • You could take the front page and pages inside each of the magazines that Melissa is in and put them in chronological order in a folder. Grab a slightly bigger folder so that you can continue to add to it. As for the newspaper articles, I like the framing you've already done. It can be a Wall of Fame for you and Melissa 😊

  • I dont know if its still on- but my idea is- you should wrap the magazines in a see through nylon or any other fabric and hang it as a picture or put this on the floor as a carpet

  • Can you be my husband for like one month and come here (Israel) and help me clean and declutter my stuff?? You are hilarious!!!! And a very talented person!!
