Default how often do you clean your sewing room?

I usually do a really good clean after I finish a project, with pickups here and there as needed. How about you?

I straighten and clear my sewing table after each project. My sewing room contains a cupboard and 4 totes that contain misc. craft and sewing stuff and they stay where they are.

My sewing room has devolved into a 'fabric storage facility' and I sew in my dining room. My perennial New Year's resolution is to clean after every project, but it usually only lasts until February. If we entertain and I need to move my stuff out, it takes days, and then it's like an archeological dig with different layers.

I straighten up after each sewing time. I do a deep clean from windows to behind furniture every spring. I'm always surprised at what I find, items that have been lost or forgotten.

I clean up as I work on a project. After a project is finished I do a major clean up to get all the scraps up that I missed.
And to make sure all my pins are not left in the carpet.

I straighten the room at the end of each day, and swiffer the floor each morning before I start working. I straighten the fabric stacks on the shelves when they get too messy.
