How to be more adult and keep my apt tidy? I find that I don't have the time to constantly keep my place tidy. I come home on Thursdays, throw things into the laundry then things just go (cont)

Less time on FB, more time to be an adult

Put things back where the belong as soon as you are done with them and force yourself to spend the 10-30 mins each night doing laundry/dishes/tidying/etc.

Or say fuck that bc your time is likely with more the cost of paying someone else since you work in consulting. Get a maid to come each Monday when you leave and come home to a clean place to fuck up all over again.

On my dining table or couch, because I know it just gets repacked on Sunday night.

Just don’t put things on your dining table or couch, what’s the issue?

I do the same... I just keep my suitcase in a corner. 🤷‍♀️don’t touch anything I don’t need on the weekend until I repack and reorganize the stuff back to where it goes

If it’s just the laundry...Maybe you have a nice old lady neighbor you can pay $10-20 to come repack your laundry as soon as you are done washing it.

Just keep your laundry in a hamper and the rest of your suitcase in a discreet corner somewhere. What gets thrown on the dining room table or couch?

Declutter hard.
Domt leave stuff on counters
Keep lots of cleaning supplies around
Do laundry, run dishwasher and tidy up when things are 1/3 full or dirty

I say, if I see something I clean something. Just do tiny things that take a minute as you go about your day.

I'll try the do little things! Otherwise I'm just constantly stressed

Also - not all people who clean are women. I get a lot of men as my Handy pros who come through. Let's try harder to check our language! I know I do it a lot too.

Cleaning person

Who said all cleaning pros are women? I said maid not woman. I’ve used plenty of maid services that send men. I you are being a bit bias if you think maid = woman.

Also, when I said nice old lady neighbor I literally meant just that as an example. Just like when If I had said college student neighbor I would have meant that as an example.

Let’s stop making assumptions that people are not being gender neutral and didn’t mean what they wrote.

Hey KPMG 1, it’s not a personal attack on you since I didn’t associate the comments with the poster. I’m sorry if you felt that I did. I will say however, that the definition of “maid” is female, so even if your intention was not to indicate such, it is being interpreted in a gendered way

Maid: female domestic servant. Not exactly PC. Surprised how many housekeeping services use the term in their company name

For example, I would start scheduling a call every month for my top clients, then a call every quarter for other categories… I need to track the data, and make sure employees are calling them… something that would alert my employees to call such clients. Thanks!
