When I visit with clients ready to tackle household clutter, I often find that the way in which a task is carried out - or process - has not been clearly identified. Let me give you an example. I will use the task of running the dishwasher. I know that with a household of 5, my dishwasher should run every day to keep the sink clear. I have opted to run it every night, which works for our family’s schedule. I have enlisted our children to help load and unload dishes, and it is a success! If we skip this task, the daily dishwashing process becomes compromised, and the dishes pile up.
Coming up with a simple plan helps guide household tasks, and helps a home run smoothly. Want to take it a step further? A printed list for family members helps remind everyone, and eliminates nagging. Enjoy!
