One of my goals for the New Year was to be more organized. Out of all of my goals, I think this one is going to be the most challenging for me. It seems like I’m always on the go and when I think about taking time to clean and organize, I just feel overwhelmed. Plus, I have two small children who aren’t really able to help with household tasks and it seems like as soon as I get one thing done, they’re undoing it. So, I get frustrated and things start to pile up.
Saturdays are particularly difficult because that’s my day to get all of my grocery shopping done for the week and my day to really deep clean and to run all of our other errands.
In an effort to start getting more organized without getting overwhelmed, I decided to come up with some household tasks that can be done in 10 minutes or less. It’s hard to find large chunks of time throughout the day, but I think anyone can come up with ten minutes!
Here are a few of the things that I came up with:
Tasks for the kitchen (in 10 minutes or less) ~
*Unload the dishwasher and wipe down the counters
Tasks for the bathroom (in 10 minutes or less) ~
*Scrub the toilet and clean the tub
Other household tasks ~
*Sort through the mail and throw out “junk mail”
*Vacuum one room
*Fold a load of laundry
What tasks can you do in 10 minutes or less?
