It’s a beautiful morning here at UfYH Headquarters, so I’m spreading a little love by putting the apps on sale for 99 cents. The Android app includes a brand-new bug fix for the pesky crash bug, and the iOS app should have an update as soon as Apple approves it (so probably not by the end of the sale, but soon) that adds recurring tasks and an improved 20/10 timer!

99 cents. Less than a buck. I bet you find that much when you’re cleaning up!

As always, ratings and reviews are love, and they help me keep the metaphorical doors open.

Still on sale!

Excuses are boring.

I have become a generally neat person over the last year, and I owe it, in part, to the blog unfuckyourhabitat. However, I have had a lot going on lately with my family. The personal part of me has been gone for a while as  I have been taking care of my mom and trying to cheer her up and keep her focused on beating this. It’s amazing to go onto unfuckyourhabitat and see the befores and afters! So, here is some me  time spent well!. Thank you, unfuckyourhabitat!

Cleaned kitchen based off UFYH work/break method I mentioned earlier.

In anticipation of the arrival of my hammock and a couple of new chairs, I unfucked my porch. I had this chair that I made as a big/little sis project in college, and the paint was icky and it was not pretty , so I spray painted it silver. I also tossed some broken and rotten wood dining chairs that were out there and swept and moved stuff around. I need to see if my roommates have any attachment to the other two chairs (the purple one and the wood one with the cushion that you can see in the last picture) and if they don’t I’ll take this out as well. I think the square wooden table will go too, but I can’t carry it alone.

I'm clearing out the cabinets on my service porch, and I've got an assortment of glass cleaners, floor wax, bleaches, mildew spray, etc that I need to toss. I don't want to just put them in the trash because they'll just end up in a landfill. Should I dump them down the drain? Would that ruin the septic system? I want to dispose of these things safely and in an environmentally friendly way.

Google “HHW (or household hazardous waste) disposal [your town]” to see what your community offers for household hazardous waste collection. Most areas have a designated drop-off or collection days when things like paint or cleaners can be disposed of safely.

Argh! My room is so fucked up. And my relatives are coming over next week but I need to study for finals in uni. It's clothes and trash, books and paper. Where should i start!?

Any plans for us windows phone/tablet people who'd love to make use of your awesome app?
unfuckyourhabitat unfuckyourhabitat Said:

There are no plans for a Windows app, sorry.

Do you have a timer app for 20/10s, something that dings regularly every alternating 20 and 10 minutes or do you use a regular timer and re-set it every iteration?
unfuckyourhabitat unfuckyourhabitat Said:

I use the UfYH app, which has a 20/10 timer. Links to it on iOS and Android are a few posts down.

The cat litterbox. How often should I give the thing a good washing? With what do I clean it? Where's the best place to clean the bloody thing? I can wash it outside during the warmer months, but then I'm putting chemicals in the yard. I have access to a utility sink, but I'm worried the residue from the litter could clog the drains. I usually use bleach to clean it, but I'm worried about the toxicity and my cats' exposure to it. Thank you for considering my question(s).
unfuckyourhabitat unfuckyourhabitat Said:

No bleach! Bleach, aside from toxicity issues on its own, shouldn’t be mixed with ammonia (the main component of cat pee) because it will result in things that shouldn’t be inhaled, like chloramine gas, hydrazine, or nitrogen trichloride (depending on the amounts of ammonia and bleach).

Vinegar is a cat-safe alternative to bleach, and you can use it outside, although keep in mind that vinegar will kill plant life, so dump it over weeds or in an area with no vegetation. Litter dust and residue can clog your sink, so after dumping the litter, give the box a good wipedown before cleaning it in a sink.

Another option that can save you time and aggravation are litter box liners, as long as your cats don’t notice and/or hate the texture and refuse to use the box.

Seems like the most important thing for keeping your habitat tidy is to put things where they belong. But if your stuff is chaotic and unsorted and all jumbled together in big-ish boxes, how do you get to things having a place where they belong?
unfuckyourhabitat unfuckyourhabitat Said:

You start sorting.

One box at a time, figure out what you have, what needs to stay, what can go, and where it would make sense to keep things. Once you have a better idea of what you need stored, you can start figuring out how to store it. The keys to any organizational system are:

  • You need enough storage for your stuff. More stuff than storage always equals a mess.
  • You need storage that’s easy to access and in a logical place, so it’s easy to put things away.
  • You need storage that works with the space you have and the things you need to store.

Basically, inventory what doesn’t have a home, figure out what a good home for it would be, and then make that space happen. At the end of it, you shouldn’t be left with anything that doesn’t have a place to go.

we all refer to The Entity as “UFYH Lady” and thus far The Entity has neither contradicted nor smited us

Ha! I love this. I won’t contradict that I’m a woman, although calling me a “lady” might be pushing it a little. (But yes, “UfYH Lady” is the generally accepted way people refer to me, and I’m totally fine with that.)
