I've gotten in the habit of doing small amounts of housework during the commercials of my favorite nightly TV shows. It's amazing what I can get done in the 2-3 minutes of each commercial break! I've managed to get my entire living room clean during "House" - the dishes washed by hand during "Bones" - the bathroom spotless from a single episode of "Big Bang Theory". You really can get a log done - plus you are moving every ten minutes, so burning calories as well!
