Chapter 6 - Yikes!

one bright spring morning, your mom walks past your bedroom door and smells a bad smell. "what's that smell?" she says aloud. she follows the scent, and BOOM! she opens the door and nearly faints from the scent (and look!).

"clean your room right now!"

oh no. you can't even walk into it! how do you clean it?

do you have some music? you could listen while you work. or even set a goal. ask your mom if you could have something if you finish, like a candy. but don't eat your candy until you're done, because then you won't want to keep cleaning. because remember, you're going to have to get it done sooner or later. i'd rather get it done sooner than later! if that doesn't work, time yourself. do it every time you clean. let's say today it took you 2 hours to clean. keep track. try to beat 2 hours next time. if you don't, just keep cleaning until you get it done. if you pass your time, reward yourself! soon you'll be a fast cleaner!

Oh my gosh, this is my childhood right here, except my exceptionally messy room didn't smell (because I was always drawing, so it was usually paper all over my room). But I HATED cleaning it!

These are great tips. I think I might apply them to my attempts at packing!
