You know the feeling, when you walk into a room, you stop, and think, “Why did I come in here?” That happens to me more often if I’m constantly going up and down the steps.
Save yourself a trip.
Put a basket at the bottom of your staircase to collect anything that needs to go up. Every time you do need to go upstairs, take a few things with you.
I do this with laundry baskets, too. I wait until I need to go upstairs to carry the clothes up… sometimes my knight-in-shining-armor carries the heavy baskets for me!
