Back to the blog ... I can't seem to post anymore pics just yet. I'll try again later.
Was just thinkin' about how busy life is when you work full-time, have kids at home, and have a Stampin' Up! demonstratorship. I never had the resources to hire outside cleaning help so Saturdays became a dreaded day. That was the day to do all of my grocery shopping, laundry, and house cleaning. Needles to say, not everything always got done. I started trying this trick a couple of months ago.
- Get up 15 minutes earlier than usual and do one chore before you go to work. It may be as simple as cleaning your bathroom counter. Then the next day, scrub your toilet, and etc. By the time Saturday rolled around, my bathroom was clean. That doesn't sound like a big deal but it really helped.
- Even before going to bed, do one small chore that you would normally do on Saturday. Maybe it's just vacuuming or dusting one room.
- I even started shopping for my groceries on Friday night, after date night with my husband. That freed up an enourmous amount of time!
- Oh ... one more small tip. Have duplicate cleaning supplies in your bathrooms. Many times I'll look at a dirty counter and think, "I'll clean that when I go get the paper towels and spray." And, then I never do because I don't want to go get it. This way I can just grab the cleaning supplies right when I notice it needs cleaning and it's done before I know it!
Well, the hubby is home from work and I have a delicious pot of Chicken Tortilla soup simmering on the stove. He's lovin' this layoff thing too! I told him to not get too used to it.
I'll take pics of the soup and share the recipe as soon as this site will let me post more pics. Have a wonderful evening. See you in the morning!
