We all have a “catch-up” list. This is a list of tasks we need to accomplish, but we just don’t have time for: get an oil change, sign up for a retirement account, sell your old tech…the list never seems to end. To find time to tackle that list, plan catch-up days for next year, and do it now.
This idea comes from Adrienne Breaux at Apartment Therapy, who explains:
A catch-up day is just what it sounds like: No family or work obligations, no social events planned, no judgment for how big your catch-up list may have gotten. Just a day to do the small things sprinkled around your house that feel like they’re piling up.
It’s sort of like adding empty events to your day in order to make time for projects that take longer than expected. But with this, you’re giving yourself an entire day to tackle that dreaded catch-up list. And by doing it now, you won’t forget about it or put it off next year. Breaux offers more detail on how to schedule these days at the link below.
