Quick Clean Ups

Do you sometimes feel like you don't have time to do ANYTHING? Or you get overwhelmed at the thought of all the cleaning that needs to be done. I know I do! But if you really think about it there is so much you can get done in 10 minutes or less...or 5 minutes...or even 2 minutes. Really...there is...

You can get alot accomplished without ever really losing any time. In the time it takes to cook something in the microwave you could have knocked an item off of your to do list instead of watching the food hoping it will get done faster.

Here's some ideas:

2 minutes or less

Unload the dishwasher

Wipe down the kitchen counters (unless you have a really big kitchen)

Clean the faucet and mirror in one bathroom

Wipe a small spill in the refrigerator

Wipe down the washer and dryer

Clean the lint filter in the dryer

Wipe down your coffee pot

Wipe the switch plates in 1 room

Shake out door mats

Disinfect the door knobs in 1 room

See how much you can get done?

5 minutes or less

Dust 1 room

Sort through mail

Take out the garbage

Clean the kitchen sink

Clean out expired or unwanted items from refrigerator

Make the bed in 1 room

Wipe the fronts of cabinets in the kitchen

Set the table for the next meal

Rinse out kid's lunch boxes

Spray air freshener throughout the house

Fold a load of laundry

Make tomorrow's to do list

Balance your checkbook

Check your cleaning supplies and make list of what you need

Now we are making progress !!!

10 minutes or less

Sort through a junk drawer

Scrub the toilet, bath tub, and sink in 1 bathroom

Clean all the mirrors in your house

Vacuum 1 room (or more depending on the room sizes)

Sort dirty laundry

Load dishwasher

Organize 1 cabinet in the kitchen

Clean out your purse

Make a shopping list

Group all the clothes in your closet by category (pants, shirts, dresses...etc)

See how easy that was!!

By just taking a few minutes here and there throughout the day you can get so much done that you didn't think was possible! In just 10 minutes you could get 1, 2, or even 5 things marked off your to do list! If you are a fast worker you could possibly get even more done! The time for procrastination is gone...get up and get something done...now!!

Don't put off what you can do NOW!
