How to Spend Less Time on Chores
Instead of saving all your cleaning and errands for the weekend, try wiping down the bathroom on, say, Tuesday morning after your shower (as a bonus, steam helps loosen soap scum) and picking up birthday gifts during your lunch hour. Seizing small time windows throughout the week forces you to be more efficient. The theory: Chores "expand" to fill available space, so if you give them less time, they'll take less time. And you're rewarded with an actual day of rest.
You'll save: 2 hours or more per week
