How to have a {fake} immaculate house! (Part 1)

I am going to do this series to get you ready for the new year - yes right at the start of all the holidays!! 

This is what I think of when they say "immaculate" - stark and blah!

I actually have to say that I've had friends come over and tell me that my house is actually makes me laugh out loud - HA!  You know why?  Because it's may SEEM immaculate, but I've got most people fooled! 

Yep, I've got an Ace up my sleeve!

First of all, the word immaculate means Without stain or blemish; spotless; undefiled; clear; pure. according to Webster's Dictionary.  So, to say that my house is this way is really not true.  I'm just a regular person and just use some simple and effective things to keep things looking tidy and clutter free. 

This is totally what I try to avoid!

There is no reason to have a house that is spotless...cause that wouldn't be life.  Yes, I'd like for my kitchen floors to stay clean at least until my hubby comes home and sees it (not that he even notices it), but that usually doesn't happen.  

 No, this is not my kitchen!  But, look how clean the floors are!

I'd like there not to be toothpaste all over the kids bathroom counters when guests come, the mirrors to be free of fingerprints, or even the floors to be vacuumed daily - but that just isn't life and that isn't my life. 

 Ok, the kids aren't this bad, but some days it feels like it!

I would like to think I'm not lazy, but I am. I am guilty of spending too much time on the computer instead of cleaning the stove in the kitchen or the dishes.  But that's not my top priority.  There are a few things that I've been noticing that I do that maybe normal people don't - or do, but I'm weird that way.  So, I'm going to share those things that I do to keep my house looking "guest ready" all the time.  

 Maybe I should clean the floors like this?
