Lazy. Squared.

I used to hide dirty dishes in the oven when unexpected guests arrived. Pretty gross clever, but I can't count the number of times I've gone to preheat the oven and a cloud of malodorousness has enveloped my kitchen. Burning plastic is seriously nasty. 

My laziness has cost me some darn fine tupperware.

So I don't do that anymore. Instead, I pile the dirty dishes in one half of the sink, then strategically place a few clean dishes on top. That way it looks like a sink full of clean dishes. In fact, this is better than having an empty sink, because it says, "Look, this chick has it together. See all her clean dishes? She's awesome like that." 

When the dishes are put away they don't say anything at all. And an empty sink is just an empty sink. A sink full of clean dishes? That's an advertisement for your awesomeness. Try it sometime. People will be impressed.

How do you channel your inner lazy?


  1. My mom used to pick up the bigger vacuumables on the floor, then leave the vacuum out. If she wanted to look extra-spiffy, she'd also spray furniture polish in the air. Heck, maybe she still does.

  2. Oh, and I may need to add "Darn Fine Tupperware" to my list of good names a rock band.

  3. I love what we all do sometimes. Fill the d/w but don't start it. Dump all of the junk in a box and hide it in the other room. The list goes on and on. You are awesome!

  4. Oh, followed you here b/c I loved your comment on the about page of momalom, but now, my laziness has been pointed out and yeah: the internet is a distraction.

    A bad one.

    Lovely to meet you.

    Logging off now, to give some semblance of order to this place.
