Clear the Counters
We're willing to bet that a good 90 percent of Americans have major problems keeping their kitchen counters free of junk. Counters just seem to be magnets for any household items -- mail, pens, keys, sunglasses -- that don't have a clear home. Add dirty cups and used plates to the mix, and you have the makings of a real clutter disaster. If you use your commercial-break time to find homes for a few of these items at a time, you might be able to actually see the counter surface by the end of the evening!
