#WEverb14: Hasten

Sorry for the late update, I didn't have a chance to check out the prompts today.  Here's the 3rd one:

What new trick or shortcut did you learn in 2013? What do you want to speed up in 2014?
Ooh this is a tough one. I mean, I have two whole Pinterest boards dedicated to exactly this idea - one is Clean & Tidy (dedicated to being clean and organized) and the other is Good To Know (Things that don't fit in Clean and Tidy like remedies and charts).   I think the best thing I've pinned this year that actually helps me do things quicker is from the Kitchn - the article breaks down how to cut, dice and chop fruit and vegetables. 
The one most helpful to me was definitely cutting onions. Onions always make me cry, so I don't have a lot of practice with them, but their method makes tons of sense!  You essentially cut the onion in half, then use a grid pattern to get perfectly sized pieces of onions - GENIUS! I've even offered to cut onions for dinner now that I know this trick!

For 2014, I really need to apply myself to keeping a clean home all the time. The Baconator and I are both pretty messy, and we both go through bouts of cleaning, but my goal is to figure out how to get my house cleaner faster and how to keep it that way.  A clean, mean, twenty fourteen!
What are you hoping to Hasten in 2014?
Love and Bacon,
