As part of the 31 Days to Make Cleaning a Habit series we’re moving away from kitchen habits to overall habits…
31 Days to Make Cleaning a Habit – Habit 14
Throw Away Trash Immediately
Sometimes I think this should go without saying but after reading the comments on a previous post, I’m pretty sure trash is a problem for many of us!
Have you ever…
- Pulled off tags from new clothes
- Emptied the toothpaste tube
- Ran out of shampoo
- Ignored junk mail
- Emptied a box
- Finished a single portion snack
…only to leave those things sitting on the counter instead of throwing them in the trash?
Um, yeah, me neither.
By throwing trash away immediately (and training our family members to do the same) instead of letting it sit out on the counter, our homes will be tidier and we’ll eliminate work for us in the future.
What’s the trash habit like in your family?
