Keep the mentality that dishes never end. If you expect to see an end to your dirty dishes, you will be disappointed, your dishes will pile up, and your sink will look like my college apartment sink. You don’t want your sink to look like my college sink. Same with laundry; there is no end to laundry. Fold it before it wrinkles. You don’t want wrinkled laundry because you will have to iron your wrinkled laundry. Avoid having to iron your laundry.
Clean your dishes immediately after any meal. If you let your dishes wait, they will pile up with other meals and look like my college apartment kitchen sink. Your don’t want your sink to look my college sink. You will be a much more pleasant roommate, daughter/son, wife/husband, if you are on top of those dishes!
