Schedule a Fix-It Day

Here's an idea for fixing things around your home: schedule one day for pressing tasks and prepare all materials and plans in advance. We found this idea in a Washington Post email and like it, because whenever we're at home we only want to eat, sleep and watch LOST. A one-day event for better living sounds doable.For an experiment, we decided to do one day of shopping for all the things we'd been needing in our house. We took some Christmas money and made a list: shredding scissors for the kitchen, clock for the bathroom, blender for morning smoothies, etc. Then we mapped out directions and a plan of action and took care of business. It felt good to only spend one day on these errands and not run around after work at night for a week straight.
