Small Steps


During the week I do not have much time to do housework but some of the smallest things can make a difference.

I have managed to do 2 loads of washing since we arrived home on Sunday evening.  The folding is done and put away but I have not got near the clothes that need to be ironed.

2013-02-14 01Last night I quickly sorted out the pile which had been upended on the single bed in my sewing/ironing room into piles of similar items – The Duke’s business shirts in one pile, my skirts in another etc.  It now looks much more manageable and I plan to do at least some it tomorrow morning before I catch the slightly later train in the morning.

Do you have any tips and tricks that make a task seem less daunting (and look more organised in the meantime)?

  1. I have no tips I can share because I don’t iron. If something needs ironing it doesn’t come home with me, but then I am more flexible as I work from home. I know myself so well, I would never get the ironing done and the clothes would rarely be used as a result. Good luck getting through your pile.

  2. Good idea to make the task seem less daunting. I do this with my filing. If the pile gets overwhelming, I sort it into piles according to which drawer it needs to go into, then I’ll be inspired to tackle one small pile rather than being overwhelmed by one big pile.
