Maybe my next post will be on denial?
Needless to say this post is more for me than anyone else but hopefully you may be able benefit from it, too!

1. Have people over often.
This may sound odd, but it really works! Bryan and I have people over a lot. Whenever I know someone is coming over in a few days, it is harder to put off the chores until the weekend.
You can’t say this one doesn’t make sense. Get rid of your junk! Do you have too many clothes? Too many pots and pans? Too many children (Just kidding!)? If you have stuff you aren’t using then get rid of it. Less stuff, less mess.
Yes, I said that. In fact, I did a whole blog post on stuff you can do while waiting on the microwave. It is amazing how many dishes you can load/unload or clutter you can put up while you wait on the endless countdown. It becomes a game, really! (yes, I’m crazy). Your Hot Pocket will even taste better because it’s like you had to work for it!
4. Load the dishes as you are done with them.
This is easy. Just unload the dishwasher whenever it is clean and put your dirty dishes in immediately after you are done with them. Once it is full, run it again! I would much rather put dishes in as I use them instead of all at once.
5. Speed clean!
This may be my favorite, and it is fun to get kids involved too (not that I have any, but I was one!). Set a timer for however much free time you have and just frantically clean until it goes off. You would be surprised how much you can get done! It almost becomes a game of how much cleaning you can do.
Hey, whatever works, right?
