1. What do you consider a bad boy?

2. Do you change your bedding for the different seasons?

3. Do you/have you ever smoked cigarettes?

What's wrong with being a college student?

Methinks those two sentences are contradictory.

Since studying art history I've developed a fondness for old art like the Renaissance, I need to find the print of the lord's supper! But I like a lot of newer stuff too, Norman Rockwell is my favorite and my mother had these collection plates of his that I hope to get when we go through the house and clean out.

I hope you weren't putting Normal Rockwell in the category of "newer stuff".

Then why buy it?

Because I like my bedroom decorated and not just a bed with sheets on it. That reminds me of a college student lol.

Everything is in its place, yes, when no one is home...bawahhhaa... but seriously, I have no need to sit on my bed during the day though and basically "everything in it's place" means that everything has a home so you don't have to try and figure out where something is all the time. I don't think there should be any reason for clutter. If it has a home, there will be no clutter and I purge, purge and throw away, throw away on a constant basis. </span></strong></span></p>

I don't agree. I think there can be "clutter" that has a designated place.  My FIL was a prime example.

I have a friend in her 60s who has never used the formal china she got for her wedding 38 years ago. She has NEVER used it. Why have it? We don't use the fancy stuff very often, but we do use it for more than decorating the china hutch. If a plate gets broken, I'll replace it. But why have it if I don't let myself enjoy it and use it? And those intricately folded towels in bathrooms just annoy me. Personal pet peeve.&gt;&gt;</span></p><p><span>That I agree with and the fine china is a perfect example, I use mine on a regular basis, along with the silver and cloth napkins.</span></p>

I don't have china, although I do have my grandmother's depression glass. We use it occasionally - not often, but not never. And a good portion of it is displayed in the kitchen.

<p>Apropos of nothing, can I just say how peevish the whole "guest towel, don't use this, don't use that" thing makes me? Stuff is meant to be used and enjoyed. If it wears out, get a new one. And if one can't afford a new one, they shouldn't have bought it in the first place. I've walked into houses in which the "guest towels" are elaborately folded and pinned just so--that looks ridiculous to me. And not just because you KNOW they aren't getting washed regularly and are full of dust...</p><p>We LIVE in our house. I can't wrap my brain around people who don't. Life is short. What good does having a pristine comforter do when you're dead and can't enjoy it?</p>

 

Amen, sistah!

Small homes are easier to clean too!  I have nick nacks and to some people that's a lot of clutter, Lol but they all have their place and it works. I am huge on things like built ins, armoires etc.  If we ever replace our boxy family room tv the flat screen krap it better fit our armoire b/c I'm not into moutning tvs on a wall! 

Yes they are but the smaller the space and the more things, it turns into clutter very quickly.
