Today’s tip is kind of like an anti-tip. I’m going to tell you to NOT do something. I’ll give you a moment to digest that… Ok, ready for it? If something in your house is already clean, don’t bother re-cleaning it. I know for some of you that doesn’t mean much, but for those of us who land somewhere on the OCD spectrum there’s a good chance you have certain days when you do things. For me, laundry day is Saturday. Almost without fail (to the amusement of the people I live with). I just enjoy a fresh start each week!
But all this is beside the point. The point is, if you have a specific laundry day, or a cleaning day, or a certain day you run the dishwasher or wash your car or clean the floor or change your sheets, or whatever! If it doesn’t need to be done, don’t do it. Just because that’s the way it’s always been done doesn’t mean it HAS to be that way each week. Save yourself some time when you’re able and do something else productive. Or take a mini break in the middle of your day and recharge.
Now if you’ll excuse me, Monday is my grocery shopping day.
