How do you get motivated to clean?
My apartment is a pit. It isn't necessarily dirty, but very disorganized. I'm on a three week break from school, and I have barely done anything. I can't get motivated. I think some of the problem is I have undiagnosed (until January, that is) AD/HD and so organizing myself is hard, but I like to be organized. I get too distracted eaisily. I keep thinking of things I could do to reward myself for cleaning (read, watch TV, get online), but then I just do those things instead. If I have to work in the evening, I can hardly get motivated at all, because when I DO get going, I hate to stop in the middle of what I'm doing.
I've read stuff online, tips and such, but it's mostly geared towards people that live with others. I live by myself, and I'm honestly not home a lot.
I'll take pretty much any suggestions you may have...I know what I want to do...I just don't have the gumption.
