As we all know by now—and boy, do we know it well: the world of Twitter is basically one big ball of unpredictable savagery. But amid that chaos, humorous and heartwarming threads appear, and that’s why we’re here today. One recent thread on Twitter started by Dan Diamond asked users, “What’s the best advice your parents ever gave you?” The responses make for a good read, some of which offer solid home-related tips, too. Here are our favorites:

As a person who is currently—and possibly forever—fixing up a house, this resonates on the home front. Knock down that wall. Go for it. Just know all of the possible pitfalls before you begin.

Golden advice from a woman who’s had to paint twice.

Buy second-hand long before you spend money you don’t have on furnishing or decorating your house. There are too many great ways to approach your interior design on the cheap for you to go into debt over it.

If you’re a reader, keep your books in a common area. Not only do people notice, but they can be interesting icebreakers, too.

Although the inherent profitability of real estate is contingent on a lot of things, the lady has a point. (Please don’t try to sell your boyfriend, anyone.)

Do it with cleaning, do it with home projects, do it all the time and you might actually get some stuff…done.

This mentality will keep your home organized, well-decorated, and always improving. It’ll probably add a little goodness to the rest of your life, too.
