I love those tiny, seemingly insignificant changes, that make all the difference in your day-to-day life. In this case, it’s just a $2.99 plastic dish pan. I’d been meaning to buy one for years, but I kept putting it off. Which doesn’t make any sense, but that’s what happened.
Finally, M. picked one up for me a few weeks ago. What’s the big deal? It was like, three bucks.
You’re probably a better housekeeper than I am, and you’ve probably been doing the dish pan/soapy water trick since you were about two-years-old, but I seriously just started, this month. I know you’ve read this advice before – it’s so ridiculously simple – fill the dish pan with hot, soapy water while you’re cooking. Keep putting dirty dishes in as you cook. Put your dinner dishes in too, if they’ll fit. Then, dishes and clean up are so much easier. There’s not much more I can say!
Except that washing dishes was like a mini-water-therapy session for B. tonight. I really didn’t think I’d be writing about how fun and awesome clean up time is becoming around here.
What’s one tiny change you’ve made, that’s made a surprisingly big difference in your life?
