List of things I’m slightly miffed about
I still suck at this whole cleaning thing. Woke up and realized there was this nasty mold growing in the rice cooker so I’m bleaching the ever living shit out of it.
Two loads of laundry are going since the boyfriend and I need clean work clothes, and I’m making myself a super early lunch to bring on bus since I always have to leave around noon or 12:30.
Let me be frank here, the place is a shit hole. And it’s equally my fault as well as my partners. We’re young adults recently out of college with an apartment that’s furnished by all the leftovers of friends and family.
When I was a kid I day dreamed about getting my own place and making it look just like I wanted to. But of course getting nice things cost money, and as a kid you don’t think about the compromises you make with your partner when it comes to living expenses, food money, and delegating chores.
I decided to be fully responsible for cleaning since it’s honestly more of a hassle to have my boyfriend try to help me, but it’s very obvious that I have my own bad habits and never really learned the proper healthy way to maintain a home.
The biggest problem areas are the extra bedroom that has become a catch all for all the crap that we can’t put away. It used to be a craft room with spilled open cardboard boxes of my crafts, but ever since my boyfriend’s mom brought over boxes and boxes of clothes that I have yet to sort it’s been a hot mess.
I’ve tried sorting and cleaning this massive pile but it’s kind of hard to do this while I’m stuck in this cycle of maintaining the few clothes we actually wear, and I just want to donate them all.
BUT said boyfriend wants to try everything on and pick out what fits and what doesn’t and we don’t have time in the day to actually do that.
I guess I could consolidate and fold everything I need back into the boxes …but I’m not quite sure where to start. Any tips or words of wisdom form the unfuck your habitat community?
