If you’re like me, you avoid cleaning because it’s time consuming.
After all, you’ll have to move the chair to vacuum under it, remove couch cushions to catch crushed crackers (could I get even one more “c” sound in?), and find some long-handled duster thing to clear corner cobwebs (yes…three more “c’s”).
I need a nap.
Half-Assed* Housekeeping Hour, or 3H, to the rescue!
Every Monday, Habithackers grab their brooms, vacuums, and dust rags for a quick and dirty cleaning of flat surfaces and visible floor spaces.
If your house is exceptionally cluttered, don’t worry. You will gradually clear it. Clean around the stacked stuff for now. There’s a reason we call it half-assed.
The result? Your house is going to look much better. Yes, dust bunnies are hopping under the bed. The light switches are greasy. The table legs haven’t shaved. But no one’s going to notice. Everyone but you will assume you’ve thoroughly cleaned.
This does not mean we will never get to filthy nooks and crannies. It’s a sad fact of life that dirt exists. But that’s for another day.
*Yes, I use language that is questionable to some of you. You can rename this habit if you wish.
