I think it looks dirty, gross. Like the other Mamas said the stains really grossed me out. I'm pretty ocd about my house though- any sort of clutter or mess regardless if it's clean or not drives me NUTS.

and i also shampoo the carpets weekly, the house(and carpet ) is 30 years old, and we cant afford to replace it at this point in time.

Well, how about ripping up the carpet and putting new in? Carpet these days is fairly inexpensive. You could also just lay laminate flooring- that's really cheap. We did the entire kitchen for about $60. For the sofa's, there are really nice coverings out there. That will make them look like new.

And is that a bag of trash in the corner of the dresser pic?

That's what we did....I have a black leather love seat that was given to us, and my couch was old and didn't match so we bought a cover at Walmart for like $20ish.

not everyone can afford to just replace their carpet and furniture. some of us just have to make due with what we have.

to me.. it looks disgusting, dirty, cluttered and just pure laziness. I wouldn't feel comfortable in your house at all. Just being completely honest. I have slight OCD about my house though.

Yes, I noticed the swing too!! I would have a panic attack walking into that house but I am over the top OCD which can be annoying at times.

Why are you getting defensive? You posted this asking what people thought. you don't need too be rich to have a clean house.

We have a covering on one of our sofas too, because we have pets and their hair gets everywhere. It's so easy, you just wash it with the laundry. And you can change up the color every now and then too.
