3 Things Thurs: Biggie and the 1880s
......I'm in a sweet FB group all about women supporting women and a recent topic was how to make more time in your day. It sparked a BIG convo in my Decluttering group (Which you can join here https://www.facebook.com/groups/declutteringandorganizing/), about life hacks and how to get more done in less time. The ultimate goal is to have more time to enjoy the things you really love. Today's 3 things are some highlights.
1) Delegate: Because you can't do it all (nor should you be expected to).
WAY back in the day, couples had like a thousand kids in order to run the farm. Johnny was in charge of milking cows, Suzy did the wash, Carol hung the clothes out, YOU GET IT. But today that's just UNHEARD OF. Why? Is it SUCH bad parenting to ask you kid to wash a baseboard or 2? I always say I'm an 1980s parent who does not get all involved in every moment of my kids' lives. I like to let them figure things out on their own when possible because discovery is good for them. But sometimes, I'm also an 1880s parent who thinks her toddler should pull a little weight at the homestead, I mean that cow is not going to milk itself Karen. And same goes for spouse or whomever else lives in the household. And if you put the S-i-i-i-NG in single, outsource some tasks like housecleaning, errand running, or organizing (ahem).
2) Just order it already: Remember when Kroger started click-list and Sam's started Club Pick-up? Well they were ALL ahead of their time UNTIL Wal-mart and Prime Now (Whole foods delivery) started DELIVERING TO YOUR DOOR. And Insta-cart everything in between.

3) Live with less: The Notorious B.I.G. once said "Mo' money mo' problems" - but really- I think he said this because "the more stuff you have, the more stuff you have to clean and keep up with and remember" was really harder to sing. I don't actually have a housecleaner because my house is VERY easy to clean - I have nothing on surfaces to pick up or move around. And also, back to point one, I have a toddler who dustbusts, so there is that.
Peace, love, and labelmakers y'all.
