Delegate One Task
Running a household requires a lot of time, not to mention energy. From keeping clean clothes in closets to maintaining a stocked fridge, by the end of the week there's little time left for other (more pleasurable) activities. This year, choose one less-than-pleasurable task that robs your free time and delegate it. If you must buy time by hiring someone to complete the task in the short term, do so. Some suggestions: hire a cleaning service every week or two, have your groceries delivered, or skip weekly trips to the post office by using the Postal Service's Click 'n Ship service.
