Working During Commercials

I detest sitting through commercials on television so I use that time to accomplish (or at least start) some household task that needs doing.

It may be something as simple as emptying all the bathroom wastebaskets or taking the stacked newspapers from the TV room out to the recycling bin in the garage or getting the load of laundry out of the dryer and folding it, or even unloading the top rack of the dishwasher.

When the program resumes, my attention goes back to the television show. It's surprising how much you can accomplish by just working during the commercials.

Me, too! I get lots done that way. It gets to be a habit and I find it hard to sit thru a movie that doesn't have commercials. I like the little breaks.

I am disabled but can do limited amounts of work at a time. I get a lot done this way without wearing myself out. My husband is always impressed at how much I CAN do during the day!
