This week, work on the “put it away, goddammit” step of laundry and dishes. Every time you do a load of laundry or do the dishes, challenge yourself to actually put every single item away as soon as it’s done.
Try timing yourself to see how long that third step takes, and decide whether or not it’s worth investing whatever that amount of time is so that your clothes or dishes aren’t sitting around in baskets, drying racks, or dishwashers for days, weeks, or longer. (Don’t be shy. I know you have laundry baskets that have remained untouched for months. It’s OK. You’re not the only one.)
