Getting things done while you're getting things done

I'm interested in hearing about "short burst" productivity enhancements I could make to my life. (Don't use the "L" word!)

There are times during the day when there are very short periods of downtime - waiting in line, brushing teeth, waiting for the computer to boot up - and I'm interested in learning how I could be filling those seconds and minutes, especially with chores and routine work tasks that I otherwise don't want to spend my free time on. I'm thinking that if I could devote many hyper-short blocks of time to a task, I could get something done during the day and it would feel like getting it done "for free".
It could be mundane like throwing out junk papers while waiting for your computer to boot, or maybe you have something more extreme - folding clothes while on the john? Doing your taxes in line at the grocery store? Maybe drag the broom behind you every time you cross the house? Hit me with everything!
