Lately I have been getting a little frustrated with the almost-constant mess that our apartment is. We both contribute to the mess, and it seems that once I clean the house, it only takes a day or two for it to fall into its usual disorganized self. What to do?
Eurika! Last week I got an idea: we would spend five minutes every night tidying things up before we go to sleep. I quickly did the math in my head: five times two times five (I gave us two days of slack) is FIFTY minutes! Imagine: we'd spend 50 minutes organizing this and that during the week, and the entropy that usually ensues in our household will certainly be diminished.
I sold this grand idea of mine to Husband, and he was on board.
To this day, we have spent exactly ZERO minutes organizing anything.
It turns out that five times two times five is zero...
