I’ve started giving myself 10 minute challenges. I set my timer for 10 minutes and tackle a household chore while my children are having a snack or lunch. It’s amazing how much you can accomplish in only 10 minutes when you focus on the task. The 10 minute challenge is a weekly feature on Mommies with Cents. Each week, I will show you one of the things I was able to accomplish in 10 minutes. I encourage you to join me- it really easy amazing what you are able to achieve, even if it’s incremental, if you set your mind (and timer!) to it!
Last week I set to work in my kitchen trying to clean out stuff I don’t use to make room for fun new stuff that I get to review for Mommies with Cents. I made room for this but I didn’t stop there. This is what one of my cupboards looked like last week. I only had time to do the top shelf so this week, I did the bottom shelf.
It took less than 10 minutes because mainly it was just tossing out old stuff and putting things in a little neater. Here is the end result:
Busted! You can see that I added a few things to the top shelf that weren’t there previously. It’s all a work in progress….
It still looks sort of messy in the picture but stuff isn’t falling out and it feels more organized to me.
I’d love to hear ways you manage your time at home with kids. Please share your tips with me and our other readers by leaving a comment, then come back next week for another 10 minute challenge!
