A Clean Home Is A Misspent Life


I first heard this saying in "The Family" (an underrated ABC show that got cancelled after one season because nobody except my family was watching) but I'm sure it originated elsewhere. In fact, it turns out there's a book about it, so I'm certain it originated elsewhere. (Added that book to my reading list.)

The idea is that if your home is always spotless, you've spent a lot of time cleaning that could have been better spent in other areas of your life.

While I do want my home to be tidy, I appreciate the sentiment here.
