Writing Prompt: Odd Couple

Does a messy home (or office) make you anxious,and cranky,or is cleaning something you just do before company comes over?

A messy home makes me cranky,if there are more than one person in the house it’s not easy to keep things squeaky clean or clutter free. I do try to make the inhabitants aware of the mess,not all of them care,they hear,but it comes through one ear and goes out the other.

I think these days we seem to have too much of everything and most of the time we can do with half or less of the things that occupies our abode. Instead of keeping us from buying anymore we go ahead with our bad habit of buying. There have been times when I tell myself I’m just going to window shop,I end up buying arms full of things I may not use in the next few years.

So while I get cranky and anxious of the mess and clutter I am guilty of contributing to it also.

I clean up before the arrival of company and feel at ease looking at a neat and tidy house,but It doesn’t stay that way too long.

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for this. I don’t like clutter. At the same, however, I contribute to it.

    All good wishes,
