I was multi-tasking this morning (tsk, tsk) and was checking out some old bookmarks. One site I revisited was a good resource for slow cooker recipes. She has a ton of other resources on her site though, including this article on The Daily 7, seven brilliant tips to minimize the pain of housekeeping by doing a few things daily.
Number 1: Make Beds Right Away
Number 2: Do One Complete Load of Laundry
Number 3: Empty All Garbage Cans
Number 4: Keep Your Kitchen Sink Empty
Number 5: Clean Up After Yourself and Help Children Do the Same
Number 6: Bathroom Wipe-Down
Number 7: Before Bed 10-Minute Clean Up
Making beds first thing would mean kicking my husband and cat out of bed, so maybe my daily list just got skinnied down to six! I think laundry and the kitchen sink are my two favorites off this list. My household has gone from 5 to 2.75 people and yet my laundry is out of control. One load a day would definitely help me out. And amen to keeping the kitchen sink empty. A sink full of dirty dishes makes it difficult to prepare meals and is just yucky and chaotic feeling.
