So there is a lot of reasons why we can be clean and responsible with our things that't the one it will prolong the life of our stuff which will save money and it will save time and you can then use for other stuff, it allows you to find what you need when you need it which another time savor and sometimes a money savor, sometimes people go out and buy something, repeat buy it because they can't buy it. Being clean is obvious more comfortable, an uncluttered room is more specious its more relaxing they can use it for play they can use it for homework its more welcoming to their guests because lets face it even kids might can feel awkward in a pigsty. -Right, exactly. -But this one got me the most, its healthier, I mean and I was just about before I left, I read this report and it just grossed me out, a study in the Journal Environmental Study and Technology found that ordinary house stuff can contain arsenic, decomposing insects, pollen, human skin cells, fecal matter, - gross, from dust mates that basically bug pop, -eww, and even DDT which is a toxic pesticide. - okay I have to go home and clean now.
