The importance of household processes

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‚Äôs 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!
