Finally, a housekeeping and organizational system developed for those of us who'd describe our current living situation as a "f*cking mess" that we "really need to get around to fixing one day." Unf*ck Your Habitat is for anyone who has been left behind by traditional aspirational systems-the ones that ignore single people with full-time jobs, people without kids but living with roommates, and people with mental illnesses or physical limitations. Most organizational books are aimed at stay-at-home moms and people who seem to have unimaginable amounts of free time. They assume we all iron our sheets, have linen napkins to match our table runners, and can keep plants alive for longer than a week. Basically, they ignore most of us living here in the real world. Interspersed with lists and challenges, this practical, no-nonsense guide helps you develop lifelong habits. It motivates you to embrace a new lifestyle in manageable sections so you can start applying the tactics as you progress. This philosophy is more realistic than aspirational, but the goal is the same: not everyone will have a showcase of a home, but whatever your habitat, you deserve for it to bring you happiness, not stress.

I was a little worried when I started the book because the author was throwing around words like "heteronormative" and "traditional gender roles". All I wanted was to get motivated about cleaning! Luckily the book turned out to have some really good ideas! The author has great suggestions for people with disabilities or chronic pain, room mates, and family members who just won't get with the plan. Also what I thought were great tips for helping someone get their habitat in order. If nothing else, come away with laundry and dishes have three steps: wash, dry, and PUT AWAY!!

This is a 5-star blog full of 5-star ideas (when I moved a couple of years ago, it went well in large part because I used the UfYH method!), but only a 3-star audiobook.
