There’s a moment in adulthood where you realize that there’s more to cleaning than just doing laundry and occasionally washing dishes.
It’s so much less horrifying to be in my room right now.
Q: So my bedroom is, and has been, ungodly messy my whole life. Whenever I have cleaned my room, someone (usually my mom) always has the comment, “Oh, it’s clean, now only if it’ll stay that way” or something along those lines. IDK why, but this makes me mad beyond life. To the point that […]

A number of people have asked for bare bones schedules for what should be cleaned and when. Please keep in mind that these lists are in no way meant to be comprehensive, and that your needs will vary as far as tasks and frequency. This is meant as a starting point to forming good routines […]
Q. Boyfriend and I are in our mid-20s and have been dating for two years. We’ve begun to move forward on the physical side of our relationship, but this is first-time territory for both of us. Being of the nerd persuasion, both of us have done a great deal of reading on the internet about […]
