You know how at work you have to do the things you don’t necessarily want to do, regardless of whether you feel like doing them or not? Not so at home. At home you can afford to postpone a task, sometimes indefinitely, if you can’t be bothered doing it when it is scheduled.
It’s hard to beat the good old whiteboard-style message board on the fridge door, with a magnet felt pen and eraser. It’s just about the most convenient way for household-related communications – that is, until you’re out of the house…
Family/social events can be pleasant and exciting, or dull and boring, or anything in between, but whether you’re dreading the thought of them or can’t wait to go, you’d better not double-book yourself, or you will be sorry!
Remember the good old days of pinning bills to a board or sticking them with magnets to the fridge? And then, if you were particularly organised, you’d have a wall calendar hanging nearby with the bill due dates marked on it?
Is cooking a chore or pleasure? I say it depends…
It’s one thing to cook when you’ve got plenty of time on a leisurely weekend afternoon, and completely different when you come home after a full day’s work and still have to put in another couple of hours to feed the family.
These days, I rarely see people in supermarkets using shopping lists. Whether it’s because they are super smart or just lazy, it’s not really a good idea.
Sure, it’s a good mental exercise, probably keeps the old noodle sharp, etc., but there are some downsides…
Leases, contracts, insurance policies, warranty cards, manuals, certificates, forms, leaflets, etc.
Just where do you keep all that stuff?
No, seriously, I’m actually asking – where do YOU keep them?
