I really ought to have tidied up my apartment this evening, seeing as I was here and had nothing pressing to do, but housework is never high on the list of ways I’d like to spend my time. With the academic year winding down, though, my opportunities to get the place thoroughly cleaned before I close it up for a couple of months are dwindling. It’s not especially messy–given it’s very small size, I wouldn’t be able to move if it were–but I’ve got a lot of clothes and miscellaneous clutter piled around in inconvenient places. The real problem is that I have essentially zero storage space, and considerably more than zero items of clothing. There’s an obvious solution, I’m aware, but I’m afraid that scaling back on the wardrobe is simply out of the question. Perhaps a larger pied-à-terre is in order.
