#1: Daily Dishes
This is one of the chores I hate doing, I will admit it. We currently do not have a dishwasher, and my son goes through 4-6 bowls and 3-5 plates PER DAY, that is not counting the 3 plus cups. As I am typing this here are 3 bowls and two cups on the table still waiting for me to clear and wash, just from dinner/post dinner snack. However doing the dishes daily I have found, will give you a sense of accomplishment as well as a fresh start. Both are things that every homemaker needs, every day.
