I made two promises to myself about 10 years ago which really changed my life:

1. I would never let clean laundry sit in a basket, I would fold it and put it away before I went to bed.
2. Never go to bed with dirty dishes in the sink.

I've been really really good with 1, I think I've only skipped putting it the night it's done 1-2 times. I'm pretty good with 2.

One thing I found with me, dirty dishes in the sink (or clean dishes in the dishwasher) are a barrier for me washing dishes.

Another thing I always do - if I have to take out the trash under the kitchen sink, I empty ALL the trashcans (bathroom, office, laundry room, etc).
