Why Cleaning The Home Should Never Be A Chore

Why Cleaning The Home Should Never Be A Chore


So many of us sigh and subtly shake our head when we think about getting up and cleaning the home. It’s a notorious chore that’s seen this way all over the world. For some reason we think taking care of our only home, is going to be boring or perhaps a waste of time even. The truth is, if we don’t clean our homes, it’s not going to look or feel like a home pretty quickly. Sadly, many people fall prey to their own laziness and allow the hygiene of their home to become less than normal. Maybe it’s because we as a society keep looking at cleaning one’s home as one dimensional. It’s not just about being clean, so that bad smells don’t infiltrate through the home and so we don’t take on a bad odour either. The reason for taking the household cleanliness very seriously is because it could very well soon not be your home anymore. At the very least you won’t be alone, and you have no choice whether you like it not. Just by doing nothing, you invite all kinds of creepy crawlies into your carpet, walls, cupboard, floorboards, and even into your beds. After you learn about the critters that will flock to your home and the damage they can cause, you’ll never see cleaning your home from top to bottom as a chore ever again.

Rae Dunn Insanity

So I stopped by my local Marshall’s yesterday since I was at Target next door. I have pretty much gave up on looking for Rae Dunn on a regular basis anymore. I spent  most of the summer as we relocated with the Army from North Carolina to Kansas stopping at every TJ Maxx, Home Goods, and Marshall’s I could find with zero to no luck. Not so much as even a mug, and my frustration was getting the best of me. The final straw that broke the camel’s back so to speak was an altercation I got in with another RD Buyer in a Home Goods in the middle of who know’s where.
