I am just wondering what lazy (but handy) tips you all use in the home, to make your life easier?
I thought it may be nice to share some with each other, as I am sick of feeling really un-organized!

My main one is REALLY lazy:

When making a roast dinner, I always use those throw away foil trays to roast the meat and potatoes in blush. I HATE scrubbing roasting tins, so now I make sure I don't have to!

Another one is that I used to always run around in the mornings like a headless chicken, finding uniforms for school, and pants and socks for the children. Now, I have a 'Uniform bag' in the upstairs hallway, in which I keep all school uniform, PE kit, and 5 pairs of pants/socks/boxers per child.
As soon as the Uniform is all washed (normally a Saturday), it goes straight into this bag, so I don't have to worry about where to find it on Monday morning.

What are your lazy but genius ideas? Please share, I don't want to feel like the only lazy one here smile

Thanks for explaining toot I get worried about anything that touches the toilet and don't like to use a washable cloth because I don't wash much on 60 degrees which I guess would be needed to kill bugs?

I use disposable loo wipes MinimalistMommi (well, they say flushable on the packet but I always throw them away).

I've also go the duck loo brush thing here (there is not much worse imo than a toddler wielding a loo brush because they think would make a good toy) this way everything that clean the loo gets thrown away.
