On being more organised
I have slowly come to realise that the more specific my HabitRPG Dailies are, the more likely I am to keep to them. I've always fancied myself as a free spirit who works best when I get the urge to do something, but I have found that since fixing two days to do laundry and two follow-up days to dry stuff, it's made life much easier. Before I used to think, "What shall I do today? Shall I do some laundry? Nah... this other thing is more important and anyway it might rain," but now there's no thinking, no making decisions. Monday and Thursday are laundry days and Tuesday and Friday are for drying. I'm now experimenting with making fixed days for vacuuming. I'll report in due course if it helps.

As a messy person and a 'free spirit' I'd love you to keep us upto date on this. I HATE HOUSEWORK and have to force myself to do any, even when I am well enough to do it.

As I live alone I sometimes have a slight wobble, what if I died and my poor kids have to sort this stuff out. They may throw out stuff I wanted them to keep not knowing it's value, monetary or sentimental, just because it's in with junk.

I'm a terribly disorganized housekeeper, and because I telecommute I always seem to have work to do instead of cleaning/organizing. Maybe I should try a schedule like this. I look forward to hearing how it goes.
