I think I've mentioned before that neither my husband nor I are neat people. We aren't exactly messy, but we don't really keep a clean house either. Please don't think we live in filth, it's not like we could have a spot on the show Hoarders, but we would probably fit in over at Clean House.

It's incredibly frustrating because even when I clean - I mean hardcore scrub baseboards, vacuum windows, rearrange furniture, even touch up paint the walls - it's still not clean enough because we have so much crap in such a tiny space. I went a little crazy with cleaning last night, but I almost went fucking nuts this morning when I wake up and look around only to find that the house still looks unkempt.

I wish we could be featured on Clean House, maybe Niecy Nash would be able to convince my husband to throw out at least 1 of the 4 coffee tables in our living room, and the worst part? he doesn't even like coffee....

That's how I used to feel in our tiny condo. It's like you clean and clean to gain some control over your space but it hardly helps if there is not much space to go around. I HATE clutter. It is toxic for me!

That's so silly! That man doesn't need 4 coffee tables. That is so classic. haha

I'm definitely a neat person, but I don't have a lot of things either because I'm a college student. I'll come be your Niecy Nash!! :-)

Good luck with the hubs and house.

Same thing with me and my mum.
I'm a tidy person but she keeps so much crap in the house it just always looks unorganised.
Cleaning and tidying is just stupidly never ending in a place like this haha.

Same here. My husband calls our house "filthy". Gee, thanks hun. Makes it sound like there is leftover food everywhere, litter all over, animal poop, well, you get the picture...there is some clutter and maybe some dog hair and dust, but "filth"....geeze, gimme a break already!

I tidy and clean, sweep, vacuum, dust, do the dishes, (no dichwasher, at least that works)...etc...it is not filthy!
