I believe I have discovered a solution to a question that has been asked by homemakers the world over since the world began. The answer has eluded me for years, but I finally came upon it at the beginning of this summer, when we moved across the country and had to find a new place to live. It’s simple, really.
The question: How do you keep your house clean?
The answer: Don’t move in.
I now present you with the study which helped me come to this dramatic conclusion.
Exhibit A – my new digs before the movers and husband and children arrived. Just me and my camera.
Exhibit B – the same space, after the movers and husband and children arrived.
See? The answer to one of life’s persistent problems is right there, folks. If you want to keep your house clean, don’t live there.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to take a few boxes to Goodwill. Because all that stuff ain’t gonna fit in this lil’ house o’ mine.
