Tidy Tuesday

There are tons of articles out there besides this detailing how to clean, how to organize, how to make a chore chart, etc.  I've read all of them.  No, really.. I'm probably reading new articles titled something like "How to Keep Your House Clean" at least every week.

The problem is, not everybody has a similar lifestyle, yet it seems like all of these columns assume just that.  Many are writing to an audience of moms or families.  I'm a college student with a part-time job, and I live with my boyfriend, my cousin, and my two dogs (yeah I said two.. sorry Mom! :P).  Not to mention, I still need time for homework and a social life. Hello, clean-experts!  I am not a cleaning machine (nor do I want to be), and I don't have time to keep everything perfect! 

Your place, whether it's a dorm, apartment, condo, or mansion, does not have to be spotless to be clean and comfortable, but it also doesn't have to look like a bomb went off every time you have friends over or can't find your favorite shirt in the morning. My goal for this column is to find practical solutions that work in real life for busy young people.  If that sounds like you, check back later today to see what I've come up with.

  1. It's always annoying when articles makes assumptions about all of its readers, and the advice kiiiiinda fits, but it just doesn't quite apply. I'm a college girl myself and I will def check back to see what you have to say :) And just an aside, I used to hate taking those quizzes in magazines like Seventeen and such and I felt like I never completely agreed with the possible answers on each question. Weird pet peeve. Haha.
