The library recently got this really awesome book by Rachel Hoffman, UnF*ck your Habitat: You’re Better than Your Mess. It’s based on her website of the same name! The book and website intentionally has a little bit of strong language, but it’s not to the point where it’s in bad taste. If that’s way too much of an (understandable) turn-off for you, let me point you out to Marie Kondo instead!
As I’ve been making my way through the book, Hoffman has some really great advice for people who struggle to keep up on the messes our daily lives bring us. It assumes nothing pertaining to cleaning ability. This gives you a chance to start fresh to learn and build new cleaning habits!
My favorite is her philosophy of 20/10s. I know that sounds like a really weird name, but bear with me while I explain. All 20/10 means is for every 20 minutes of cleaning, you take a 10 minute break. 20/10s are adjustable based on your cleaning endurance. Not quite ready for that? Try 10/5s. Are you ready to be a cleaning MONSTER? Try 45/15s! It’s workable to fit any kind of level. You can do as many 20/10s as you want. Do one a day, do several in a row, it’s your choice!
Check it out today (after I return it…whoops!)!
