Kitten with Broom
Lately I haven't been feeling very motivated as far as housework goes. So I've been doing something very simple: I write a list titled "5 Things" and list out (are you ready for this?) five chores that I need to accomplish. Sometimes one "thing" is actually several tasks pertaining to the same room/chore.
Yesterday's list looked like this:
1) Take all laundry down to basement, sort, and start load
2) Make bed, pick up room, dust
3) Pick up living room and dining room, dust, Swiffer floors
4) Dishes, sweep kitchen
5) Write out menu and shopping list
Then I start at the top and set my timer to count up, and see how long it takes me to do each item.
