Dump Your Luggage On Your Bed To Prevent Unpacking Procrastination

The last thing you want to do when you get home from holidays is unpack. Give yourself motivation by putting your stuff between you and sleep.

No one wants to sleep on a bed covered in clothes, books and souvenirs. Dumping your stuff on your bed may be undesirable, but it's a mess you'll have to clean up if you want to get a good night's sleep.

Of course, this only really works if you're not inclined to move a mess from one place to another. It's a great motivator to keep yourself on the ball during the time you're most likely to put something off.

LPT: If you procrastinate unpacking after a trip, make the first step dumping entire suitcase onto bed. Now you'll have to put things away before sleeping. [Reddit]


    No good, it just ends up on the floor in that case.

      first thing i thought of when i read the headline

        Came here to say just that.

    Pointless. If you're going to take it out of your suitcase, you may as well put it in the hamper or away or at least in the correct room straight away and avoid the double handling.

    When I read the headline, with the word "luggage", I assumed the recommendation would be to out your suitcase (unpacked) on the bed. Not that you'd want to do that either.
