I’ve had a lifetime of perma-fucked habitat. It only got worse when I fell in love w/ and moved in with someone with an equally fucked habitat.
It is time for things to change! My entire house needs some level of unfucking, but here’s what I’ve done recently:
The “dining room” before:
Clearly not being used for actual meals - we have been eating in the living room (our one good room) off of tv trays. Not ok.
and after several 20/10s:
I didn’t get the floor in this picture, but it is CLEAN. The TV is gone, the trash/recycle have been moved under the sink, and I am heading out to buy proper chairs this afternoon.
Big storage cupboard before:
This cupboard has stuff that has never moved since it was first shoved in there at move-in, two years ago. I also desperatly needed to apply the UfYH laundry maxim to my dry dishes - step three is PUT THEM AWAY.
Not perfect, but much better! I can find my teas, paper and plastic bags (which were actually part of the dining room mess) are stored for easy re-use, my partner’s power tools are accessable without being at risk of falling onto my head, and my cookbooks live somewhere I can actually use them. Hooray!
Thanks for the lessons and motivation, Team Unfuck Your Habitat!
