When I pulled the shiny metal and glass French Press out of the box on Christmas morning, I had no idea how it would impact my home. My family may still have no idea how it has, but believe me, I know. It’s given me the best 8 minutes of housekeeping of my day.
How it works:
Stumble out of bed
Put water on to boil
Add coffee grounds to French Press
4 minutes of decluttering and plant watering
(You didn’t think I’d show you my clutter, did you? One day, one day …)
Pour boiling water into French Press
4 more minutes of decluttering, wiping surfaces and general One Thing-ing*
Once the coffee is poured, the decluttering is pretty much over
Not that there aren’t places in desperate need of attention – especially if we’ve had a busy or health-challenged week, or both combined, eeeks! – but hey, the coffee is ready!
[Pause for a sip.]
Enjoy your day and if you feel pressed to do housework, make it French!
