The ability of doing nothing when changing the wheels requires lining up of the cassettes on the two wheels. Since the shifting is currently just slightly off, after you change one wheel, you might try to make a washer, cutting a ring out of a soda can, and place it on one of the hubs under the corresponding cassette.
The above assumes that you have tools for cassette removal. If you don't you, might try to place a washer out of a soda can on the wheel axle, from the drive side. After convincing yourself that it works, place the washer between the nuts holding the hub, so that the thin washer does not get destroyed during the wheel change.
