Or to put it in other words; my best excuses for not spending more energy than an absolute minimum on domestic stuff.
- Friends, kids and others don’t have to worry about leaving a stain somewhere; it will blend in perfectly with all the existing ones
- Less stress to host guests when you don’t bother about full cleaning before they come. Nobody notices anyway, the place will look like a mess afterwards (=neutralizes the effect of boring prep’s) and referring to No.1 again, the guests can fully enjoy the evening without bothering about crumbs or a bounced wine glass..
- Kids’ mess will (probably) be less annoying if it’s propotionally balanced with your own.
- In case of insufficient exposure to dust and germs/bacteria, we get more allergic and asmathic(!). Scientifical proof, you are my friend!
- It’s always better to be the one who gets nagged on, than being the nagger. Hard to imagine more boring stuff to nag about than dishes & chores. (P.S. Applies for home, does not in any way reflect my views on worklife 😉 )
- You won’t get completely stressed out by minor and major home accidents (which occure quite frequently in this home)
- The approach is great in combination with second hand furniture, which saves you extra money (= travel funds, as a bonus ref. to the time you already saved on not spending it on completely boring chores
- You save the nature from all the bad chemicals & stuff that would otherways be poured down the drain
- Nobody will ever blaim you for not having spent enough time cleaning/tidying
- People easily feel very much at home when visiting, and if they bother its really their problem
- You might even make people feel better about their obvious superior domestic skills, from seeing your clutter, which is a great benefit!
Hope I didn’t offend anyone who puts a tiny bit more perfection into their home than I do – and feel free to share or stick on the fridge door for a rainy day!
Messy, dusty greetings from the undomesticated one 😉
