- Process incoming mail

- Wipe down kitchen and bathroom counters

- Take out trash, even if it isn’t full

- Scoop litter box, if applicable

Things to do before bed:

- Wash the dishes in the sink – regardless of how few

- Put together tomorrow’s outfit – be sure to include accessories

- Set up coffee, tea, breakfast

- Make lunch(s)

- Locate your keys and put them where you know to find them

Things to do every week:
