  • A house is not a home.

  • U r amazing. This is the biggest problem I have! U r so kool and honest. I HATE CLEANING CUZ I START TEN THINGS AT ONCE JUMPING FROM ONE THING TO ANOTHER BEFORE ANYTHING IS FINESHED!

  • too much talk. to much degrade of people who like to do what your video is suppose to be about anyway! ???

  • Purging is great. Quitting the shopping habit? Not so great. That's where I struggle

  • Love watching your videos !!

  • THANK YOU!!! It's frustrating when "unicorns" advise one to purge, organize etc. For you to "come clean" and talk about when you were also a hot mess, is very refreshing and inspiring! In the midst of purging / cleaning / organizing right now and have your videos playing to keep me company / motivated. Just had to take a mini break to thank you :)

  • Great vlog were minamlist that's the way not much stuff if you don't like cleaning and you want a life to relax

  • How do you publish a book? Thank you for the video.

  • I clean up and organize, then I can’t remember where I put everything!

  • All these cleaning videos are great, but I can’t decide on the best technique,,,

  • butterfly9274 my daughter did cleaning and reorganizing the furniture when I was at work and she was 13yrs old. she is 42 and is still a great cleaner and tidyer. x

  • thank you. I feel overwhelmed and what you said makes sense as to why I feel overwhelmed and how to help get my house under control.

  • I love cleaning my house, currently doing so! I'm a 🦄!

  • My dust bunnies murdered my cleaning fairys...omg I'm dead ba ha ha

  • Haha I absolutely love cleaning and I hate messes yet with a kid they always accumulate 😂

  • I love your accent. Where is it from?

  • You’re helping me change my life and mental health. Being a single mom and trying to keep on top of everything can feel hopeless, but I’ve been using you’re tips and turning all of that around and making life and little bit easier everyday

  • Guess im a unicorn...

  • It's called legitimate suffering. You do something that you don't like doing so that, in the long run, there is improvement in your life or your day. For example: before I go to bed at night I clean my house. This is not something I look forward to and sometimes i just don't feel like doing it but I do it any way so I wake up to a beautiful home and I can do the things I want to do because I have already done the things I have to do. I also exercise every day so that I can have a fit and healthy body, feel good about myself, and look more attractive etc. Legitimate suffering!

  • You Rock!!!!

  • You look s9 stupid!,,, shut up !

  • Declutter . Use dust pan and brush for a quick sweep up daily. Tidy as you go. Keep on top of the washing up ( think how de motivating it is seeing last nights washing up in the morning ) Take pride in your home it's probably costing you a lot of money.

  • I would have given this video a thumbs up but you talked to much and I was wanting you to show us your house more. I hope you don't take this the wrong way. 😐

  • I've known you for 14:33 minutes and I love you. LOVE YOU! It's like the angel on my shoulder telling me to get it together (who's always arguing with the devil on the other shoulder telling me to relax and watch one more episode...) has jumped into my computer and her name is Cassandra. THANK YOU for making this video! I'm inspired and kind of relieved to know that someone as together as you was once more like me - swampy mess in my home. Thank you! Keep sharing!

  • You are fantastic. I love your personality, honesty, realism. 💖💖💖

  • I just lost my mom to cancer and have been doing all of the basic cleaning in the house with my dad's help (occasionally) for a few months now. But I now have to go through and organize /declutter everything that she ever had and also the other projects from when I was younger. So I hope I can use these tips to my advantage to help me feel less stressed and more prepared for the upcoming projects.

  • Would be great to know where you bought the containers and shelves

  • I couldn't agree with you more... organization is the key! I will often hear friends say "I organized the closet but it was a mess 20 minutes later." If properly (effectively) organized, it will maintain itself to some level, with infrequent tidying needed. Once I conquered this concept, my house went from unclean & cluttered to tidy & clean almost overnight!!

  • Every time I decide to clean I put something in the donate pile I look at it then put it in keep, then I decide it is to much work at watch T.V.

  • Loved your enthousiasm !

  • Mam pls talk less.

  • Will you hold me? 😂 lol I found your channel a few days ago and have been watching your videos everyday. I love your honesty and humor!! We need to clone you and spread you around the world!!!

  • I don't mind cleaning, it's the tidying that stalls me. I really don't like putting things away, especially if I'm the only one doing it (and I am)....

  • Wouldn't this order make more sense? First, purge. Second, organize everything that remains. Third, create cleaning checklists.

  • I’m a unicorn lolz - but for years I’ve had to battle with a family of all boys - now my boys are teens it’s so much easier for my unicorn habits to shine out my butt lol

  • 3 minutes in and I already like it. The laziest way to be organized - Count me in!

  • I just love your personnality and your video

  • Too gabby...............

  • The kids do the kitchen in my home, and everybody takes care of their own room the only thing that still missing is laundry and dining rooms.

  • Thanks for being real! Definitely a sub now ❤

  • I use to HATE to load and unload my dishwasher. One day I just timed myself doing it. It was LESS than 15 minutes. It's amazing what you can get done in that amount of time. So.....I go into each room and set the timer for 15 minutes. When the time is up, I stop, and return the next day. I go from one room to another that way. Also, I do 27 Fling Boogies (FLYLADY.NET) to keep clutter at bay. It works! Dishes daily and one load of laundry daily. Also you can declutter a lot in 15 minutes. Let your timer be your best friend! TFS

  • I WISH I STILL HAD A HOUSE OR CONDO! I hate apt living...also so much smaller...really sucks big time...

  • Im a unicorn but I suck at it ( the wife of the man in the pic)

  • Call me crazy but I believe you should purge/ get rid of a lot of stuff, next organize what you keep and maintain the order by having a daily cleaning routine. What she said but in a different order.

  • Propper love you, you've given me hope, YOU ARE MY UNICORN 💖💖💖

  • Best way to keep your home clean is to sleep whole day and night. Stay sleeping.....U won't move or use anything so no need to clean also.

  • Great advice!! I got the opportunity to de clutter and purge the past few days and already just keeping up with stuff has made CLEANING so much faster! I feel so at ease 🤗🤗🤗

  • I absolutely love you. You've changed my home in the last month I have purged a ton and organized to where I can keep my clutter contained I can have people over without the mad dash!!! Thank you so muxb

    • Thank you! I'm so glad it helps!

  • I love being a 'crazy' unicorn! Love cleaning my house, and do it at least every 7 days. Plus, some cleaning every day, so that it is not a huge effort to get it finished. Love to plan for my cleaning day! I am naturally an organised person, and have had a major declutter, so all the tidying up and putting away, is done easily. Show us unicorns some love! xo

  • Got a good list to keep home organized and clean.. No kids.. no pets.. no husband.. no eating.. no cooking.. No moving and absolutely no breathing.. dust will get everywhere

  • All she did was rant. No instructions whatsoever. What a waste of time viewing this video.

  • transform into unicorn😂😂😂nice..who know!!!😂😂😂

  • Agree with you! You put it so nicely! I'm not unicorn, but I'm in faze when I can not imagine to have stuff on floor or on counter, after diner can get kind of kaotic but than I automaticly put dishes in dishwasher (or my children do that) and we are half way done! Beautiful! My friend would have to see this video! I can not put it so nicely as you did and she needs this! Realy... I'm so sad every time I come to her house and she is always telling me excuses why is so mess... Sorry for long coment! I just had to! Love this video! Love!

  • Inspirational video ☺

  • You are a joy to watch compared to other organization podcasters. Keep it up! I enjoyed this video.

  • I like to organize but not clean.

  • Were would you start, my house is going to bust at the seams. Help please xxx

  • I like you. Please help me Clutterbug. I am too busy to have a tidy house. And its out of control. Arghhhhh.

  • So far this is by far the best cleaning house tip video thank you

  • You could cut this time in half at least by not being so redundant, unicorns, wish I hads, just say the steps, NOT all the little repetitive things about how u felt, what u thought. We are not u and anything u have to say, say it once and this would take 5 minutes instead of 15 minutes of repetitive irrelevant info. Your 3 steps take WAY too long to get out.

  • You are so great. Nice to be part of the ones on earth doing something positive.Being positive. Raging against might be purgative but nor productive. Thank you Clutterbug LOVE IT

  • Talking too much......... less content!!!

  • Try to do the prep day, I cook twice a week and is amazing. Check prep day tips for bodybuilding, doesn’t matter what you cook, is the process that helps.

  • The ideas work because you are bubbly and motivating! You are cute. I think you'd look super fab if you wore a bright color instead of black. Black isn't your color. :)

  • New to your videos! LOVED the honesty in this one!!❤️

  • You are so nice and positive.

  • This video sares me... especially that part about daily routine...

  • I\'m not sure but ,if anyone else wants to uncover ways to organize your home try Stiklind Fast Declutter Fixer (Have a quick look on google cant remember the place now ) ? Ive heard some great things about it and my mate got amazing success with it.

  • I'm OCD and love a clean house, but secret to having a clean and organized house is to be a unicorn who lives alone. 🙂🌸 #UnicornStatus

  • Fuck this videos music

  • I actually really despise doing a little bit of cleaning daily, I far prefer to do a huge clean up once every 2-3 weeks. This is because I can actually see the difference my work has done and that helps me to find it more rewarding and makes me want to do it more and also I find cleaning daily to be a hassle especially because who wants to clean every single day and also it leaves wiggle room for me to fill my day with other more important things like not cleaning and getting actual work done.

  • love this! I need to do this. my house needs help.

  • Is shy as hi as i am too ahhaha

  • Haha same hear ti much watching lol k ima start lol. Hope to c u n myself as a unicor one day hahaha

  • "maybe I did have cleaning fairies but my dust bunnies murdered them all. " #bestquoteever

  • My problem is getting my kids and husband to help keep the house cleaned... Picking up after themselves

  • you need to SHUT up and get down to BUSINESS

  • Thanks for your enthusiasm...an entertaining and fun video along with all the useful information! All the best to you and your venture!!

  • yes i am moving to a larger space but as I'm going through my families items I am realizing we need to spend more on experiences and less on stuff. Mini-Minimalist is a thing!

  • A third book? Well, I have two that anyone can have...Oh no...I decluttered those...didn't even donate...just trashed.

  • Ha, too funny. Love your vids... One thought. Invest in voice lessons... Your breathing pattern, while speaking, makes it difficult to focus on content. Trust me... You will love the elevated production quality. So, your dust bunnies killed off your cleaning fairies... I'm still laughing. And I'm with you... Count me in as a mini-minimalist too.

  • You are absolutely delightful. I would watch any video you create. Thank you!

  • You are a ROCK STAR!!! Thank you for your motivation!

  • This was so helpful. Thank you so much. :)

  • You have such a melodic voice, you should totally do poetry recitals or sing! ☺️

  • really appreciate your honesty about how much you HATE cleaning... lol that's meeeee i feel so lame for being a slob but this is my month and year to fix it! so thank youuuuu

  • So helpful. Doing 15 minutes everyday. I will try. Wish me luck. This video is so helpful.. I agree with her that 15 minutes daily is the key to accomplishments. Just like Duolingo lol. ♡

  • I'm just watching the intro and I love her lol she's is so cute and adorable and honest xDD can't wait to learn her ways!

  • Thanks for the tips. GAWM is the best show...good taste!
