#23: Don't do anything you don't want to do

The idea here is simple: Don't do anything you don't want to do.

Don't want to clean your apartment? Don't.

Don't want to wash the dishes? Use paper plates.

Don't want to go to the grocery store? Stop at the Rite Aid.

Don't want to make dinner? Eat cereal or order takeout. (Hint: Cereal is probably less effort).

Don't want to get dressed on the weekend? Stay in your Pj's. Just put your coat over top if you're going out.

Don't want to do your laundry? Send that business out. Fluff and folds exist.

These are just a few of the things that make it wonderful to be a spinster. No one is going to judge you for using paper plates if they don't know about it. And they won't know about it unless you tell them. And if they are judging you for using paper plates, they don't have enough things to think about in their life. But that's just my opinion.

When you're in a relationship or live with other people or...well, just when you have to deal with other people at all...there are always concessions to be made. When you're spinstering in your own spinster lair, you do whatever you want. And you don't do anything you don't want to do. So, live in a pile of dirty socks, and dry your feet on the clothes on your bathroom floor. No one has to know, and if they do, so what? Just remember: The floor is the biggest shelf in your apartment.
