Unfuck your iced coffee for tomorrow morning
If you like iced coffee, you can make preparing it part of your unfuck tomorrow morning routine. I prefer to cold brew my iced coffee, because hot coffee that’s been refrigerated tends to be very acidic and it also settles kind of funny in your glass. I have a few necessities that go along with iced coffee that I always keep on hand, too: coffee ice cubes and simple syrup. Cold Brewed Iced...
The worst room of all
hellofieldsbean: Just for the record, I hate cleaning bathrooms and washing dishes. They are my two most hated chores. Most mornings I get up and brush my hair in bed and only go into the bathroom to pee. I’m really not 100% sure what hubby’s routine is since he’s still sleeping when I leave for work but I am guessing it includes brushing his hair (longer than mine *swoon*), shaving, and...

Unfucking the dresser
randomlyshaped: Now for some real work! I have 4 drawers full of whatever, and I can’t ever find anything I need. Time to unfuck! First lets get everything out on the table: Please pay mind to the container with pens in it all the way at the end of the table. It matters, as I unfucked that container, which almost took 20 min all its own :P First drawer reorganized: Lot less pens, what I...
Unfucking My Stash
spyderkl: Hello. My name is K, and I am a yarn hoarder. It’s not a big surprise, because I’m a handspinner (among other things), but yeah. In an 1800s.f. house, with two other people amassing their “collections”, it’s a problem. One of the places I like to knit and crochet is in the living room section of the downstairs. (Our house has a “great room” on the first floor - living room, piano...
myrm asked: Question: please explain "Pour a little cleaner in the toilet bowl (if you don’t have pets or children or sleepwalking adults)". Are you insinuating that children or sleepwalking adults will drink toilet water or am I missing something here...? (Also, thanks.)
deaexlibris asked: Apparently, during the storm earlier today, some water leaked through the ceiling and onto my antique couch. While it's still wet/fresh, is there anything I can or should do to prevent it from staining? Baking soda, newspaper? I have a towel on it now and a pot to catch any more drips, and I'd rather not have to pay a steamer rental fee if I can prevent it in the first place. :/ (and you...

Not too far into the podcast. Pretty awesome! (And if, like Dawn, you can’t find the app, just search for UfYH or Unfilth Your Habitat. Apple and their damn hatred of profanity!)
New people! Hello!
Here’s the welcome packet. Make yourselves at home!
The best-laid Unfucking plans...
ai731: Today I was planning to work some more on Unfucking my Bathroom, but yesterday afternoon I discovered that the gauge on the pressure tank for our well pump is leaking. Water all over that corner of the basement which is, of course, where I keep my canning supplies… Because of our history with water damage in the past (thousands of dollars of un-insured losses) this little discovery was...
entrandoempanico asked: About charminglymisanthropic. yeah. Sorcery. It has been four days since I let anything touch the bottom of the sink. And I HATE doing the dishes. SORCERY.
shoofle asked: How do you pronounce "ufyh"? Oof-ee? Uff-yeh? Yew eff why aitch? This is very important. I think I've been going with Oofee.
charminglymisanthropic asked: This may not seem like a big deal, but this morning I was getting ready for work and realized I had left my glass on the coffee table last night, instead of taking it to the kitchen (at a minimum) and washed it (preferable). I felt guilty. Versus a week ago, when I had like four glasses in the living room and only removed them to the kitchen when I needed to wash and use them. What the fuck have...
All right, people, let's have some fun!
So, inspired by my terrible nail art, I thought this would be a good time to do something creative. So, I want to see some creative UfYH-inspired stuff. Pick your medium and whatever way you want to express whatever it is you want to express. Take a picture or post however you can capture the project, and tag it “ufyh creates” (without the quotation marks). I’ll reblog them all,...
A journey: Cleaning house
knitonepurrtoo: Saturday I discovered Unfuck Your Habitat. Sunday I discovered my mom is a Narcissist. As the scapegoat in the family I was assigned the majority of household chores. Housework felt like a punishment. Fast forward to being an adult, I have been diagnosed with bipolar, fibromyalgia, and arthritis, and I can’t keep my house clean. Dishes sit for weeks. The floor never gets...

idhren: “I call it being ‘stuck’. It’s a euphemism for soul-sucking paralysis, the apparent absence of any shreds of personal willpower that I associate with the worst of depression and despair. It wells up when the gap between ‘should’ and ‘will’ seems insurmountable. And it is a state of mind that I am learning to switch off.”
