A made bed may even inspire you to tackle those other tasks.

Leave Pots to Soak During Dinner 

It is tempting to get the food plated and sit down to eat as soon as dinner is ready. Take just a few extra minutes before you dive in to place the leftovers in a container ready for the fridge and put the pots, pans, casserole dishes in warm soapy water to soak. Then all you have to do is give them a quick wipe and rinse after dinner and the dishes are clean.  

Give the Bathroom a Weekly Clean 

The last place anyone wants to clean more often is the bathroom because it can be the dirtiest and grossest spot in the house. Staying on top of cleaning the bathroom can and will make the job much less taxing and gross. More frequent routine maintenance will keep mold, mildew, soap scum and other bacteria under control; making cleaning quick and easy.  

Give Bathroom Surfaces a quick Wipe Every Night 

Each night after your nightly toothbrushing and face washing, give the bathroom surfaces a quick wipe down. Wake up to a fresh bathroom and prevent thick layers of product from crusting up making a deeper clean less daunting. 

Place Multiple Liners in Trash Bins 

You can do this with every trash bin in the house. Line it with a few bags instead of just one and all you have to do is pull the full one and the next is ready to go. No more rummaging for a replacement liner every single time.
