Cleaning the house is a task that is NEVER ENDING!! I love my little girlfriends, but my stars it is hard to keep the house presentable (my standards have lowered from “clean” to “presentable”) with those two crazies making messes behind me as I clean. A friend gave me this tip and I use it Every. Single. Day. Instead of getting overwhelmed with all the messes that will never be cleaned up, I set a timer and run around like crazy picking up and cleaning until the timer goes off. Sometimes it’s an hour, sometimes it’s 10 minutes, but breaking this huge task into bite-sized chunks is the only way I stay sane. And almost every night before I crawl into bed I put ten minutes on the timer and have the house in order as much as I can before the next day begins. This timer trick has saved me many days and helps me to keep my house in some kind of order. Try it! And let us know below: What are some of your tricks to keeping a clean house and staying sane?
