My husband and I are currently living this his parents and have had out fair share of issues. We moved into help with with financial troubles they were having, but their standard of living was much lower then ours. We often would buy what would be 2 weeks of food for us that would be devoured within 24-48 hours Nothing lasts in the house. We have sat down with them and talked about whats ours and what we want to last a number of times, but nothing helps. Often times notes we leave directly on food we buy "disappears". Additionally food is Often left out and gone to waste. Entire cartons of eggs, milk and deli meats and cheese are left out and forgotten. We once found an entire bag of new chicken that someone had placed in the pantry that was completely defrosted. Mom is an extremely messy cook, foods are left all over the counter, floor oven and sink for days. Their youngest doesn't know how to use a reasonable amount of toilet paper and toilets are often clogged and left uncared for. Absolutely disgusting. But luckily we will be buying a house soon!

I actually am pretty good about dusting a lot --- I am just not good about Deep dusting. I am good about taking photos down and giving them a deep cleaning and moving everything off my desk (or tables, or entertainment center) and dusting everything --- but I have a lot of antique camera and little similar nic nacs that I am bad about deep cleaning. But when I do clean them I just use canned air and it makes it sooo much easier!

White is great --- I would pain the walls, replace the curtains and probably replace the nobs for the drawers and cupboards as well.

The best cookware - knives and pot and pans. When we first got hitched we bought some really pricey pots pans and knives and I will never regret it!

Oh. My. Gosh! I love the framed TV! We are buying a new TV and it won't fit in our entertainment center. I don't really want to mount it on the wall.... but am not willing to pay for a new center. But I will now be buying a fab frame and mounting my TV!
