This tip almost seems too easy – but we think it is one of our best. “Never Touch Something Twice.” Easy? Yes! The next time you are picking up around the house, don’t take something and put it in a “pile.” Don’t place it on the bed, don’t put it on the counter for later… just pick it up and put it where it needs to go. This is one of those tips that is so “common sense” that we probably don’t even think about it – but it is highly effective and actually quite easy.
