16 Truths That'll Make Any Low Maintenance Girl Say, "Yup."

Diply 6 Oct 2017

Let's get one thing straight: being low maintenance doesn't mean you're lazy. It merely suggests that you focus your attention less on chipped nail polish and more on Netflix, reading, working out, and anything else you deem more important. You have priorities, and who can really blame you for laundry not being number one on the list?

1. Dressers are nice decorative pieces, but you're not entirely sure of their purpose.
