I won't give away all of Linda's secrets but here is a short one for you:
"Carry out these few tasks on most days and you'll find your life running smoother than you could imagine. Miss a day... well, the dishes will still be there tomorrow.
- Make beds
- Put dirty clothes in the hamper
- Hang up clothes
- Clean up spills
- Wash dishes
- Wipe counters and stovetop"
And of course, I would add -- SHINE your SINK!
I have 2 chores for you today -
Find a box or a garbage bag and a corner of the house where you would like to store things you are ready to donate to charity. Label the bag and place it in the designated spot. Don't leave it in the middle of your living room - somewhere tidy and out of sight. Over the next few days, try and find one thing (no matter how small) in each room of your house that you would like to recycle, throw away or donate. Then - and here's the kicker - throw it away, put it in the bag to give away or get it in the blue bin. Do it right away... Don't think about it for later.
Second chore, go and shine the sink in (one of?) your bathroom(s). Just try and prevent it from spreading... Go ahead - try it!
Ok - here is my kitchen now. Remember the messy counter I posted last night?
Here it is - I got it done!!
