In my last post, I confessed that my tendency to avoid chores stressed me out.
First, thank you for the suggestions! And for commiserating. It doesn’t matter if you’re sick or not–it’s overwhelming to stay on top of everything.
So I did me a lil’ search on Pinterest, and found a few fun tips that even organizationally-challenged folks like me can handle. Enjoy!
1) Need to motivate? I tried this last night. Took a shower. Went to McDonalds. Back in bed. Which after a hot fudge sundae and fries with sweet and sour sauce makes for odd dreams. (If you need to motivate for McDonalds, you’re better off staying in bed.)
5) Memory fail. This tip is for anyone lending ME something. I’ve never been great about returning things. Not because I’m trying to keep your stuff. I just forget. (At least now I have the “brain fog” excuse!) So if you’d like to lend me something, take my pic!
6) Kitchen re-do. Cooking is a huge task when I’m not feeling well since most of my cabinets contain stacks and stacks of kitchen implements. It’s not just annoying. It’s borderline harmful, especially when your hands don’t grip and your joints cry each time you lift a heavy pan or platter. (These folks used extendable curtain rods to sort items vertically. Brilliant!)
Please note: I wasn’t able to find the original sources the images that don’t include the original source. They’re not mine and not LC’s. If one is yours, I will happily provide credit.
