I keep a bowl of safety pins in the area where I take my socks off. I pin the two socks together and drop them in a net bag on the cloths hamper. One bag is for dark and one is for light. After the laundry is done, I fold them over with the pin and put them in the drawer. All matching is done.
When I don't have a housefull of dishes I wash them by hand ( burns calories) and while I am doing that I do squats, calf lifts and leg lifts, when I put them into the dishwasher to dry I do lunges. Getting in extra strength and calorie burning that way.
My husband is a junk food junkie so whenever he eats junk I crave them too. So, the other day he asked me to give him a bowl of Doritos, which I did, and then ate 4 chips myself before putting them back in the cupboard.
We have five recycling bins: plastic bags, paper, plastic bottles, glass, and cans. Plus I seem to have accumulated several cloth bags that I take shopping with me but if I should forget to take them, as mentioned previously, I recycle the plastic and paper bags, too.
