What is it about photos of messy, dirty, and/or cluttered homes that lures me in? I can't figure it out. I haven't ever taken before/after pictures of my messes, but I know why that would be satisfying to me. But why do I like to look at others'? It just makes me itch to get in there (which is not to say I have a clean house, by the way).

I think it helps me to know I'm not the only one with clutter and/or that I'm not as bad off as some! It might not be very honorable to want to see that someone else is in worse shape than me, but I'll admit it does make me feel better. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bag.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bag">:

I love them because they make my also sometimes messy and cluttered house seem so normal. It's comforting to see that alot of us struggle with this, it's something I've been ashamed of for so long. I mean, in RL I usually only see other people's homes when they are pristine and perfect because usually people clean to get ready to have people over. It's nice to see that not everyone has a perfectly tidy house all the time.<br><br>
I love all house pictures though, I am just interested in seeing how other people organize/decorate/live.
