“ Cut down your closet by 25% by asking yourself this one question: “If I were shopping right this second, would I buy this?” If the answer’s no, out it goes.”
…. could I even do this? Personal challenge, I guess.

So I was reading one of my favorite sites, UFYH, and I saw that our fearless leader mentioned that although getting your space clean was great, maintaining was just as important so I thought I would share. When I first saw UFYH, I would regularly let my house get ridiculous every week and then on the weekends spend half the day cleaning (or two weeks, or three weeks) Laundry, dishes, and the like were only getting done on a marathon basis. Slowly I started changing my habits… now two times a day, before work and after work (I work 2pm-11pm) I do a 20/10. Sometimes if their is laundry to fold, or a little more to be done I do a 45/15 at night. And it STAYS CLEAN. No marathons, just following good habits and doing a little bit everyday. With a toddler and a dog. So no befores, but this is what UFYH maintenance looks like…
Unfuck Your Habitat: It's clean -- now what? The importance of the reset
So you cleared off your dining room table! Or possibly your bedroom floor, or that kitchen counter that seems to breed random crap. It’s nice, right? Gives you a sense of accomplishment to look at? And then, even though you try to stop it, that obnoxious little voice tells you to enjoy this…
My new kitten peed on the leather couch. I tried not to freak out because having a house that smells like cat pee is one of my biggest nightmares. I was in a flare with my MS and miserable so I cleaned it as best I could with vinegar and Bac out. I ordered Feliway hoping that would help calm him down until I could get to the vet (didn’t help). Then I found pee in his cat bed. Soaked through to the floor. Vinegar, several washings in hot water and some Bac-out and everything was better. I figured he was scared of the washing machine next to his litter box because he has a few “issues” including nervousness, mild brain damage, etc… Good thing he is the sweetest most handsomest kitty! (Proof will be provided)
Then, he peed on MY BED. It happened to be while I was laundering the sheets and the waterproof mattress cover so a huge amount of concentrated “intact” male cat pee soaked into my mattress. This was so depressing, and I was really worried about him and his future. I had visions of having to put him down, of having to burn my mattress, of dollar signs and madness. The smell was intense. My mattress is less than 2 years old and I couldn’t afford another $1000 or more on a new one. I was sick, had a child to take care of and many things going on so all I could do was vinegar and launder. But he peed on my bed again. And again. In a panic I consulted Unfuck Your Habitat for cat pee tips and luckily some angel mentioned Catfaeries.com. I did a bunch of online research late into the night and ordered a bunch of supplies. I also took him the the vet.
Here is how I Unfucked the cat pee. It’s long but maybe it will help someone else with the cat pee curse, so… after the jump!
Her Rogue is sick nasty good
Both of these cosplays are SO awesome <3
The acting is perf.
And the costumes look SO good :)
I want to Cosplay Gambit so bad!!
Hot. Damn. He’s even shuffling the cards Gambit-style, and her little hair flip is so on. I love these!
(And I still covet Rogue’s little half-jacket all these years later.)
Excuse me, I’m just going to go deal with my cosplay feelings for awhile now.
Cleaning tricks (negative points for frivolous use of OCD, but good ideas nonetheless)
There’s some repeat ideas in there, but good stuff.
Oh my gosh.
It took me almost an hour and a half, but tonight I was determined to follow up on a goal I’ve had for a while: make a work-out jar!
What is that, you say? Why, a work-out jar is a little jar filled with with slips of paper that direct me to doing one sort of workout or another. I got the idea from a submission over at UFYH, from someone who took all the UFYH challenges and printed them out to stick in a jar. I thought that was really cool and took the time to make my own last night - and, tonight, I followed up with the work out jar!
MAGIC YOU GUYS.
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 cup hydrogen peroxide
2 cups water
Cleaned the stove, the kitchen counters, the bathroom vanity (shown), the toilet and toilet bowl, and the bathtub!
I realized belatedly that the peroxide was going to lose its kick quickly (and I had an entire bottle to use) so it started an evening of cleaning. In actuality it was one 45/15 to clean the stovetop, one 20/10 to clean the counters, and I put on a facial peel and then cleaned the bathroom (15 minutes?) before my shower.
AND I used the two halves of the lemon left over from juicing to clean the tub while I showered (sprinkled the insides with rock salt and got to work cleaning an indigo dye ring left in my tub from soaking my jeans today).
