What to Do During Annoying Commercials


Doesn’t it seem that with every new TV season, there are more commercials and less actual television show? Here’s what we do…

Place a box or big basket by your favorite television chair or couch, and put in it those daily to-do things, such as thank-you notes and Christmas cards that need to be written, bills to pay, buttons to sew and catalogs to flip through. Whenever the commercials come on, take care of what needs to be done from your box. When the show is over, your job will be done!

More time-saving solutions…
