If This Were Easy…


…I would make it shine

Filed under: dishes, housekeeping — Easy @ 9:34 pm

This week’s new thing is a housekeeping task.

I have a very small apartment with a relatively large kitchen and no dining room, or even a table to eat at. So I eat at my desk or on the couch or very occasionally if I’m reading, in bed. Plates and bowls and glasses and forks can tend to pile up around the place and they look like hell even though it would really only take a couple seconds to return them to the kitchen since my apartment is very small.

This week’s thing, then, is keeping my dirty dishes where they belong — in the dishwasher or in the kitchen sink. Not on the kitchen counter, not on the sideboard, not piled precariously around my desk. At the end of each day, I will make sure that all my dishes are somewhere off in their proper place.



  1. That one took me a little while to get into the habit of. Now that I’ve got a dishwasher, it’s a lot easier. =)

  2. Oh, I’ve had a dishwasher for years and years. It’s just all the way over there in the kitchen, while the dishes have tended to be right here next to me.
