Lazy? It can be a good thing. Everyday tip #15

I think that being lazy gets a bad rap. It all depends on how you look at it.

If you think of being lazy as trying to get as much done with as little effort as possible -- well, that to me sounds smart.

(On the other hand, if your laziness translates to nothing getting done, ever. Well, that sounds sad.)


Are you lazy? Why not make it work for you?

Let's say you don't stay on top of your laundry, and your closets are bare. That's a great opportunity to look through the clothes that you don't really like (or you wouldn't be in a panic about not having anything to wear) and picking out clothes to donate or throw out. I mean, 70% of the work is done for you already -- how lazy is that?

Same thing with groceries. Next time the fridge is almost empty because you've put off going grocery shopping until there's almost nothing in the fridge take that chance to wipe down the bare shelves.  Also, throw away the half-opened condiment bottles that expired two years ago. I'm just saying.

Oh, and since we're on the topic of groceries -- when you do make it to the store, stock up on your favorite non-perishables. Sugar, flour, Nutella, toilet paper. Think of all those things that don't go bad, and buy multiples. It will save you a trip in the future -- and your lazy self loves that, doesn't she?
