Changing the toliet paper roll when it's empty. Yea, it may sound silly but some people just don't change it.

Cleaning up after you make a mess.

On that note, really get rid of clutter. When piles of this and piles of that are hanging around, it doesn't feel good. Take time in your home to make room.

If you normally get the good spot on the couch, ask your partner if he or she would like to sit there for a while.
