Prioritizing chores by the space they free up
Now that I'm more productive at home again, I'm looking at all the household-improvement/maintenance tasks.
And my experience with installing the trash pullout and the microwave grid is that I killed TWO birds with each single stone. My trash pullout is working, AND I got rid of the big box that was holding it, waiting for me to get around to it. The microwave looks better, AND the box holding the grid is gone.
So i've decided that these are the tasks to concentrate on:
-install shelf liner in cabinet over fridge (will eliminate boxes of shelf liner from my closet)
-make curtains for kitchen (will eliminate bag of fabric from my closet)
-hem all 3 pairs of new pants (will eliminate bag of pants from the DR chair)
-install sheers in DR window (will eliminate curtain rod & sheers from corner in my bedroom)
-install dividers in utensil drawer (will eliminate drawer divider kit from triangle closet)
I've been amused at myself, how jazzed up I am at realizing that I accomplished TWO things.
