Five things I do every morning to be more productive and organized
Lets be honest, life can sometimes get away with us and before we know it, it is the middle of the afternoon and we have run around the house all day like a chicken with their head cut off. But here are a few things that I try to get done every morning to make my day go just a little smoother!
1.Make my bed! This is a must for me for many reasons. It only takes a few minutes (I normally make it while I am waiting for my hair straightener to warm up) and for me it just makes me feel like my room is clean and off to a good start. Plus, who doesn’t love to crawl into a freshly made bed at the end of the night.
2. Make a To Do list – For me a to do list is an essential part of my day. It helps me stay on track and remember what I need to do around the house, order online or an errand I have to run. Plus when my husband is home and wants to help, it’s easier for him to know exactly what I need him to do.
3. Unload the Dishwasher – I normally load the dishwasher at night so in the morning it is ready to be unloaded. I do this when the boys are having breakfast and I have to be in the kitchen anyways.
4. Start a load of laundry – I am not one for piles of laundry sitting around the house, and I hate when you spend all day doing laundry. For me doing one load of laundry helps cut down on those piles and also allows me do spend more time with my guys.
5. Spend twenty minutes tidying up the house – I normally do this one after I unload the dishwasher while the boys are eating. Spending just a few minutes picking up toys, loading dishes, clearing off counters etc helps when it comes to the deep cleaning part of my day.
