Unf*ck Your Habitat: You’re Better than Your Mess is the housekeeping and organizational system developed for those of us who’d describe our current living situation as a “f*cking mess” that we’re desperate to fix. Unf*ck Your Habitat is for anyone who has been left behind by traditional aspirational systems: The ones that ignore single people with full-time jobs; people without kids but living with roommates; and people with mental illnesses or physical limitations, among many others. Most organizational books are aimed at traditional homemakers, DIYers, and people who seem to have unimaginable amounts of free time. They assume we all iron our sheets, have linen napkins to match our table runners, and can keep plants alive for longer than a week. Basically, they ignore most of us living here in the real world.

Interspersed with lists and challenges, this practical, no-nonsense advice relies on a 20/10 system (20 minutes of cleaning followed by a 10-minute break; no marathon cleaning allowed) to help you develop lifelong habits. It motivates you to embrace a new lifestyle in manageable sections so you can actually start applying the tactics as you progress. This philosophy is decidedly more realistic than aspirational, but the goal is the same: not everyone will have a showcase of a home, but whatever your habitat, you deserve one that brings you happiness, not stress.

“A must-read for people who are terrified by Marie Kondo but intrigued at being able to see their floors again.” -Cory Doctorow, New York Times bestselling author of Little Brother

“I will forever sing the praises of Rachel Hoffman’s unfussy, no bullsh*t advice―most of it is as applicable to How You Think as How You Clean.” -Kelly Sue DeConnick, author of Bitch Planet

“Unf*ck Your Habitat has the potential to change your life and to improve your mental outlook in truly beautiful ways. So don’t let the hilarious and sometimes obscene advice fool you – this book is important and it is a good, good thing to have in the world.” -Sara Benincasa, comedian and author of Real Artists Have Day Jobs
