everything in its place in just a few minutes.
Here’s how I do it: I set a timer for 15 minutes & begin at one end of my house, carrying a basket with me to toss in anything that doesn't belong in that room. I also tote along my good old-fashioned feather duster, a lighter to light my scented candles throughout the house as I go & a damp cloth to wipe up any stains or smudges. Don't worry about detail cleaning right now, just sweep through each room, snapping up anything that is out of place.
Once you've worked from one end of the house to the other, quickly replace all the items you've been collecting to where they belong. If you run your duster, room freshener and wet cloth in every room you've "swept" through, you will have a nice tidy house in just a few minutes!
Here are a few more household chores that can be done in just a few seconds, and even multitasked:
Make the bed while listening to your messages
Fill or empty the dishwasher while disinfecting your sponges
Set up coffee pot for morning
Reload the washer & dryer
Fold clothes or clean out your purse or balance your checkbook while watching TV
Apply toilet cleaner to soak in while you wipe out bathroom sinks
Empty Garbage cans
Organize your vanity drawers while waiting for your curling iron to heat up
File or pay some bills
Plan your weekly meals or shopping list
Set out tomorrow’s clothes
Put together a Go-bag
Make a To Do List
It doesn’t take much to see a little progress, and literally just a few seconds for simple chores.
