Ok, sometimes I am just too busy and have too much on my plate to clean my house, but I can't stand it being dirty, so what to do. I don't always have an hour or even a half hour, but several times a day I have 5 minutes. Utilize those 5 minutes to do a few things. Now I admit that since there is just two of us now, it is so much easier, however when I was a full time working mother of 3, doing these 5 minute jobs is how I kept my sanity.
IN 5 MINUTES YOU CAN
1. Wipe down the bathroom sinks and counter.
2. Pick up all that stuff that is laying around -
put dirty clothes in hamper & shoes in the closet and toys in the toybox
3. Put dishes in dishwasher
4. Put mail & papers in files or trash
5. Clean off and wipe down kitchen counters
6. Dust one area or room
7.Clean up small messes - My Dust Buster Is My Best Friend
8. Make up your bed
9. Straighten up pillows on sofa and table tops
10. Relax with a cool refreshing drink-you've earned it!!
It's amazing what we can accomplish in 5 minutes if we just do it. I try to keep everything picked up and put up every day and my Dust Buster is always within easy reach. It takes care of all those little spills and dust bunnies that fly around. Next time you are feeling stressed, look around, there is something you can accomplish in 5 minutes and your home will always be cleaner and more organized.
