- MAKE YOUR BED(s). if it takes you more than 2 minutes (per bed), consider simpler bedding. i have a fitted sheet and comforter, takes me 15 seconds.
- KEEP THE TOILET SEAT/COVER DOWN. seriously, who likes looking into the toilet?
- TAKE OUT TRASH + RECYCLING. i don't understand the storage of garbage, it takes up so much room and quite frankly it smells!
- DO THE DISHES. even if you do it before you go to sleep, it's so nice waking up to a new day with a clean, empty sink.
- OPEN THE WINDOWS. i don't have to explain this one do i?

Great post ! I always thought I was "too busy" to do these things until I timed myself doing them one day. Oh the shame! I could NOT believe how little time it took to keep an organized home clean.

One of my pet peeves is a trash can in plain sight in the kitchen. I don't care how expensive it is, how cool it supposedly looks - something that holds garbage is not a design element to me. I see it and I know what's in there. When I had a tiny apt. I kept a tiny trash bin in a lower cupboard, out of sight and emptied it frequently. It wasn't a big deal, and I got used to not having wet kitchen waste hanging around.

Who wants to flush with the toilet open? that fine mist goes into the air!

I so agree with you the toilet seat!!! I hate it when my guests leave the cover up... or when I am staying at someone else's house. It's completely offputing even if the toilet is really clean and of nice design, but when it's older with discolored porcelain or stone build-up it's just the most horrible thing to do to your house for no reason...
