ODI or OWI

We had a business coach who told us about ODI's - One Daily Improvements or OWI's - One Weekly Improvement. Every day or every week you pick one thing you would like to change and just do it.
So I decided to apply this to my home. You know those annoying things you always say you are going to do but never get around to it.
Yesterday my ODI was re-organising the pantry - it was in a complete mess and I had no idea what I had in there. About 20 mins later I had an organised pantry. I even labelled the tops of the spice bottles! I had such a great sense of achievement.
Today I have to go out of the house to work so because I am going to be in the car my ODI today will be to clean out the car.
Just an idea to help tackle the never ending list of "one day I will get around to it...." jobs.

great idea! I cleaned out my pantry yesterday too. It is very satisfying. (that was one of the only things I got done yesterday!! LOL)

I really like this idea, Maree Rose. As it turns out, I scrubbed some labels off some jam jars today that had been sitting in a box staring at me for weeks! Tackling small jobs regularly sounds like a good way to get the housework back on track..which is desperately needed here!
