Automatically move from one cleaning job to another...

by Flo Pitman
(NJ, United States)

I try to link jobs so that I automatically move from one to the other.

I clean as I go so when it's time to sit down for a meal the only things left to wash are the dishes in use.

After eating, I put away the leftovers, wash and dry the dishes and wipe down the stove top. One job just seems to flow into the next. I eliminate any possibility of not doing the job because I'm not having to think about whether or not to do it, I'm just flowing right along, on automatic.
