Here's a bit about me....I live by myself in a small one bedroom apartment, so should be easy to keep it clean right? Wrong! For the past couple of years that I've lived by myself I've lived in what I would call squalor. Dirty dishes everywhere in the kitchen, pizza boxes and other take away containers littering the apartment, dirty clothes everywhere, disgusting mouldy bathroom...the list goes on.I do 2 really big cleans a year when I have landlord inspections or if I know a friend or family is coming over. But I avoid people coming over at all costs. If anyone suggests visiting me I always suggest we meet somewhere or I go to their place....so absolutely nobody knew about my dirty little secret (pardon the pun). That was until recently....I became ill and had to go into hospital for a while. Which meant my family had to go to my apartment to collect some of my belongings. Well I was absolutely ashamed, mortified and embarrassed that they saw what they had to see. I can't even look them in the eye anymore.Well while I was in hospital sick, my family went in and cleaned my apartment from top to bottom and it's never looked better. So the hard part is done. But my question is, how do I not let it get to the state it was in? I don't want to live like that anymore and would appreciate any tips and hints you would have for me to keep my apartment clean and tidy!Thank you!
