It’s official – today you don’t need to do any housework.
Today is National No Housework Day – hurrah!
But do you know you could reduce your housework burden by following these two steps:
- Declutter If you get rid of clutter around your house you can reduce your housework burden by 40%. (Source: National Soap and Detergent Association)
- Delegate Make this a family affair and share the chores. It teaches a great life lesson for your children on caring for oneself and your surroundings. And for the adults … many studies show that sharing the housework makes for a better relationship in every sense! The ultimate delegation is getting in a cleaner – if your time is best spent doing something else then call in the professionals!
But for today you can take the advice offered by Quentin Crisp on the subject. “There is no need to do any housework at all. After the first four years, the dirt doesn’t get any worse.”
