5 tasks a day taking 5 minutes each to ensure an organized home.
5 Minutes – Make your bed (or not, it’s a preference) and pick up your clothes (put them away or put then in the laundry) The kids can make their own and put away their own (it won't be pretty at first but as they get older it does get better) – put a timer on and they will think it’s a game.
5 Minutes – Clean the bathroom sink and shower after you use it. Chances are no one else is going to do the shower but if you do it, the soap scum build up will be much less compared to if it is never done between full cleans. Always have a cleaning cloth near the sink and a cleaning towel near the bath to make it easier.
5 Minutes – Load the dishwasher or hand wash after each meal. To keep it down to 5 minutes, clean as you prep and cook
5 Minutes - Clean the sink and wipe the cooking surfaces after each use.
5 Minutes - Fluff and tidy before you go to bed. Get the kids and significant other involved before their bedtime
There is no better feeling than to wake up the following day to an uncluttered home and it only steals away 25 minutes of your entire day.
