Chairs are made for my clothes

Did I hear the word ‘lazy’?

Na…Na… I’m not lazy. I only do things when I feel the time is perfect for a particular thing to be done. I have Asthma since birth, and being a sick child has its own advantages, especially when you have a caring and pampering mommy. She never allowed me to do any work at home. All she wanted me to do was pray, study, write poems, have fun. I did all of it until I got married.

Imagine the horror!

That’s right! Imagine the horror! My in-laws love organizing things, whereas I don’t. I continued being the unorganized cool girl who loves to throw her clothes on the chair and enjoy the ‘Himalaya’ (I could do it because I had my personal space). Nothing could change my ways. And then a virus turned the world upside down. Covid19 was declared a pandemic. People were asked to sit at home and maintain social distancing. Now imagine the real horror-the world in Lockdown!

Perfect time

A perfect time to read books, be a chef, and most of all, clean the mess. Here are a few things that I did to clean the mess without giving myself an asthma attack.


I don’t like to tire myself. I kept a schedule for praying, cooking, cleaning, and having fun. Since I am allergic to dust, every day, only 2 hours were fixed for cleaning.


Usually, in the videos, they ask you to empty your wardrobe and declutter. I refused to follow that. Emptying wardrobe and folding clothes will tire me more. I’m a delicate darling, so I preferred to clean it section-wise and keep aside things that are not required.


My clothes had to let go off the chairs

Mary Kondo videos helped to fold my clothes in an orderly manner. I know in the long run, I’m not going to follow her style of folding, but for the time being, it looks neat. I selected a section and decided to do only one section for the day.

Remember Rome was not built in a day.

Cleaning for me requires time and patience. This quarantine, I’m blessed with both. I am using this time to arrange all the important documents, clothes, shoes, and other required items. I started organizing things a week after the Lockdown was announced, and I’m still doing it. I’m gonna take my sweet time because Rome was not built in a day.


It doesn’t matter if people keep complaining of you not organizing things or piling clothes on the chair. In the end, you should be comfortable and happy in doing what you do.

That’s indeed a great way of utilizing the free time during the lockdown. While there is chaos outside u building orderliness inside. Cool👍
