I measured all of my bowls & cups with water so I know how big they really are. I use 1/2 c. custard cups for a lot of things: fruit, cereal.
I use a 4 cup serving bowl for my fresh salads. This is just for me - not to serve others.
And, my scales are always on the counter.
Sort laundry in evening. Before going to bed, load washer dry. Leave yourself a note about checking washer - perhaps on the bathroom mirror. On arriving home from work the next day, start the load. Dry & fold after supper. Prepare a load for next day.
