Cleaned Your Room and Save Money

Picture by WarzauWynn

             “What the hell did he just say? Did he really just say you'll save money from cleaning your place?”Yes, yes I did. If you have roommates like I do, there isn't a better feeling then coming home to a well kept place that seems to get destroyed again just as quickly as its been cleaned. It makes me feel so much better to see my apartment cleaned and organized then it to look like it had been inhabited by bums.
             I never really got the whole concept of cleaning things and it'll make you feel better until my friend make brought it up to me. I had a really messy car, like I think about it now and I ask myself, “how did I really let it get to that point?”. My car was like a second home, full of old water bottles, clothes, you name it it was probably in there.
“Dude, clean your car. It's a total and complete mess. At least make it look like you're trying to clean it.”
“Eh, it's not that big of a deal. It's just a car.”
“Just clean it once. It'll make you feel better about yourself, and if it doesn't don't clean it anymore.”
             So I took 5 magic erasers and some soap and water to the car one nice day I was off and throughly cleaned it, inside and out. I was amazed, and so were my friends. They never thought my car could look so white and shiny. They were right, and so was my friend that told me to do it. I wanted to drive the car all around town just to show it off. And I found $15 in the process just lying in my car, like a lost soul just waiting to be found.
             So then I cleaned my apartment, found another $20 just lying around. I was getting paid to clean it seemed like. And it made me feel so much better just to have everything organized and I knew where everything was.
             So, just clean it once. It'll make you feel better about yourself, and if it doesn't don't clean it anymore.


  1. I agree, just clean it. Use some homemade Febreze on my blog and save some more money!

  2. washing your clothes is the best because you find change and a good about of money if your forgetful

  3. i dont think i will find any money ;( LOL

  4. now I feel dumb for keeping my stuff clean. At most I'll find 5 cents everytime I clean. I'm gonna start letting the crap, and hopefully the money, accumulate.

  5. very good advice. i'm tuned for more!

  6. Nice story :) Hope you find ways to get out of debt soon, good luck
