Everyday Tips : Empty the Dishwasher While Your Coffee is Brewing
Sometimes a quick and simple tip that can make the mundane a little easier or make your life a little better makes a BIG difference. This is a new series here on the blog where I’ll be sharing simple tips, finds, and suggestions to make life a little easier. I’ll be sharing these tips regularly on the blog and on Instagram– make sure you’re following along!
Attaching one habit to another is a great way to build a new and lasting habit. I am guessing there are habits like this that you are already doing – for instance, when you go somewhere you take your purse or phone (or both), when you are doing laundry you put one load in the washer and move the other to the dryer, after you brush your teeth you floss them. By simply linking one habit to the next you’ll make a little reminder for your brain and you’ll get a little more done. Today’s everyday tip is one of my favorite little habits…. I start the coffee maker and while I’m waiting longingly for the coffee to brew I unload the dishwasher (one of my most dreaded tasks). I mindlessly unload the dishwasher while I wait for the coffee to brew and surprisingly they take about the same amount of time – 3-4 minutes. This is such a great trick for getting a little something done first thing in the morning.

Great ideas thank you
I followed this advice this morning and loved it! I usually set the timer on the coffee maker so it’s ready when I wake up. I prepped, but didn’t set it last night. So I started it this morning, unloaded and loaded my husband’s breakfast dishes, then got my coffee, and did my quiet times. 😊❤️ I’m feeling disproportionately accomplished and proud of myself! Lol! 😝😝

Yay! I’m so glad it worked for you 🙂
I don’t have a dishwasher but I do the same thing with my dish rack. I make sure I’ve washed all my dishes and put them to Dry before I go to bed. While I’m waiting for the coffee I put the dry dishes away. Works great.
Off topic, but I wish you could create t-shirts with the Clean Mama logo, that would be so cute, I would totally wear it, I love the logo it’s so cute!!!
