What chore do you "have to" do each day before you can sleep at night?

I "have to" vacuum. It is very rare that I will go to bed without vacuuming. The bagless vacuums turned me OCD since now I can see everything I'm picking up every day! EGH!!

  • I have to have things generally picked up. Doesn't have to look fantastic but does have to be tidy.

  • My kitchen has to be clean! It just starts the day off bad if I have to get up and clean it first thing!

  • Sorry there is no chore I HAVE to do before bed. Shut the blinds and lock the doors are the only things as in chores I do before I go to bed. Nothing else is that important that I HAVE to do before bed that can't wait tell tomorrow.

  • Sweep and do the dishes. And I guess taking the dog outside, not sure if that counts though.

  • My kitchen has to be clean. I won't run a load in the dishwasher if it's not full, so not doing that every night doesn't bother me. Out of sight, out of mind. I hate going into the kitchen in the morning to start my coffee and seeing a pile of yucky dishes waiting for me to begin working on them.
