It’s normal to become so used to your everyday routine that you don’t realize how much better it can actually be. It’s probably become second nature to strain your back when reaching up for those boxes without the proper step stool or waste time searching for the pepper when you could find it in one spin with a rotating spice rack. You don’t think twice about any of it but you should.

The opportunities are endless. By the time you get through this list, you’ll be spending more time actually enjoying your home instead of fixing it.
