We put on our socks and shoes in pairs because that’s the way it’s always been done. Of course it would be incredibly uncomfortable to put on only one sock and one shoe, but that’s not the point. The point is that pairs are good.
When you’re making lunches for the kids and/or your hubby in the morning, make one for yourself too. No sense getting everything back out at noon.
When you do a load of laundry, put a 2nd one in to wash while the first one is drying. One less interruption and you’ll be able to put up twice as many clothes at one time.
Next time you cook up a pound of beef for tacos, do two pounds at once and freeze one for an easy meal later.
Pick out two days of clothes at the same time.
Take the trash from both bathrooms out to the garbage can together.
Go to the motor vehicle department one time and renew tags for both vehicles at the same time (if you can’t renew online that is)
Wash both vehicles at the same time.
Vacuum two rooms at once.
Any other good pairs you can think of?This post was originally published on April 26, 2011.
