Top five annoying household habits to get rid of

One of the most common causes of arguments inside the home is household habits that do not sit well with other people. No matter how much you love your siblings or parents, there are certain things that they do that you find very annoying. 

Since nobody is born perfect, everyone is bound to make mistakes like not throwing the trash out at night or failing to disinfect the kitchen countertops after cooking. For some people, these may be only minor issues, but for others, they take them seriously. If you want to continue living harmoniously with your loved ones under one roof, here are some of the most common annoying household habits that you need to get rid of as soon as you can. 

Using your oven as a storage area

The oven is meant for heating things and baking pastries. There may be times when you do not use it that often but it does not mean that it is okay to use it as an alternative space to store some of your stuff. Doing this can cause your things to smell like food and, worse, your house could catch fire.

Leaving dirty dishes in the sink

Many people have the habit of not cleaning up after meals; not washing the dishes and utensils that have been used. This habit is one surefire way to annoy your housemates which can lead to heated arguments. Be a responsible adult by learning how to do the dishes. If you have a dishwasher, it only takes a few minutes to rinse and load them into the machine. Besides, dirty dishes attract pests, especially cockroaches and ants inside your kitchen something that you should avoid at any cost.

Buying too many groceries

Some people find grocery shopping therapeutic, so they tend to put too much stuff they do not need inside their cart. Doing this will result in wasting food and money in the process. It is best to make a list of items that you need for the week and stick to it. It is okay to add a few non-essential items as long as you end up using or eating them as soon as possible. Do not purchase any perishable items you will not use immediately.

Stalking your neighbours

If your neighbors have beautiful homes and cars, you might be curious about what they do for a living. You might start observing everything that they do, which can make you feel jealous. It is best to ignore this feeling and focus on the positive things you have in your own life.

Lastly, you should avoid hoarding or keeping stuff that you do not need or use. You should start getting rid of old books and magazines, small and outdated clothes and other things that have been collecting dust for the past few years. There are plenty of companies offering junk removal San Francisco residents can hire to help effectively clean up and get rid of junk at home.

    Hoarding. Guilty as charged.
    Can I add another? Using the dishwasher as extra storage. For the love of whatever power, just unload the dishwasher when it’s finished!

    I have to admit, we also use the oven as a storage area. It’s just too easy to do. I would never store anything flammable in there however.
