I recently(ish) moved and while big things are unpacked so much stuff is just sitting around. Today I finally got around to tackling two major dumping grounds. Since my bathroom is way smaller I made my dresser into a makeup place! I actually put stuff away instead of somewhere else. The second is the kitchen nook or whatever and only took like 10 minutes to put stuff in the cupboards instead of dumping it.

Tidied up my room and threw a load of towels in the wash.
BE PROUD OF ME, INTERNET.

Excuses are boring.

Ask UfYH: Taking Shortcuts

Q: I am often ill and overexertion makes me worse. When I’m having a bad time, the house gets squalid. Then when I feel better I CAN’T marathon, but slow and steady is slow. Are things like floor wipes and bathroom cleaning wipes really, really awful?

A: It’s really easy for someone to say, “Yes, those things are awful. Never use them.” But that’s not the whole story. It never is.  (more…)

I can think of SOME PEOPLE who would probably be appalled at the state of my flat right now, but I had a really positive day today and I actually got some cleaning done! This is three days of abject misery, cleared away in about 30 minutes. Phew.

"Once you’re at the point where you need to spend more than one 20/10 on it in a day to reset it, I’d say it’s not quite at “clean” yet." - ufyh

Challenge accepted!

….Well I’ll be damned!

I was honestly trying to build myself up to that, just dreading that it was going to take foreverrrrr. 10 freaking minutes. Amazing =D

mkissa:

This actually took two 20/10s. Mostly because the garbage you see in the “before” picture also extended behind the nightstand and a bit under the bed and the drawers were a mess too. I still need to have a “come to Jesus” moment with my book piles, but at least for now they are dusted and organized. Gross carpet is coming up in October. I cannot wait!!

 Last semester, a dear friend moved out because I was too messy, and I lost my scholarship because of depression and just general lack of organization.

This week, my new roommates were asking if I’m a neat freak. I’m aiming for a GPA at least .5 higher than my last. 

With the help of Unfuck Your Habitat and Pinterest, I’m determined to keep my apartment clean, tidy and organized— and my life, as well. I’m graduating in May, and I need to get my life together before then. I’m learning how to cook (in fact, I have a freezer full of freezer meals for my slow cooker), I’m keeping a to-do list, I’m setting my clocks late so I turn out early/on time to everything, and I’m using Google calendar reminders like a boss.

Will you ever do a list specifically for keeping a dorm room space clean and organized? With the new semester starting this could be really useful to a lot of people.
