Even though my counters were pretty much cleared off it is still a constant battle to keep them that way! My husband and I were talking about doing something to make life run smoother everyday. He asked me what we could do to make that happen and as usual I had a list of about 100 things.
He wisely said name a couple things first. So my top two items were to complete one load of laundry everyday - start to finish and to keep the kitchen counters cleaned after we went to bed so I woke up to a clean(er) kitchen.
I am making an effort to be consistent about these two things for at least a week and then hopefully for two and so on.
You would think that these things would be easy to accomplish but for me they are not. I have to be intentional about putting the clean dishes away from the dishwasher so I can load it with the dirty ones. For some reason putting away clean dishes and clean clothes are two of my most hated chores. I don't know why.
Anyway, this is what I am doing. It makes my day go so much more smoothly.
What are you trying to be more consistent about this year (or this month or this week)?
