Tidy the countertops | Sprucing up your counters will make you feel like you’ve just stepped into a show home.
Load the dishwasher | Or the sink. Basically just tidy away all of the dirty dishes by either loading the dishwasher up and setting it off while you’re out. Or washing them up in the sink ready for when you get home.
