The great thing about minimalism is that it’s easy to make your dwelling look clean. When there are no stacks of paper and sticky washcloths and Transformers to pick up, it’s just plain easier to get the vacuum cleaner and the washrag and the broom around on the surfaces. You have *access*. Cleaning? It’s like butter.
Most people run around before a party shoving their stuff in closets and cupboards before company arrives. Not I, the uber-clean minimalist. I run around trying to make the place look pretty–by buying stuff.
