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!
We have a split level house and wood spindle stair railing. The couch in our living room is backed to the railing so you can see through the railing and under the couch. We have wood floors and the dust bunnies have been breeding under our couch for awhile now. I keep mean to slide the couch out and do a quick sweep and mop but never get around to it. Admittedly, I still haven’t done it but I’m going to, because it’s on my list. My oldest is turning 4 this weekend and we are having a birthday party. Birthday parties always inspire me to clean like I don’t usually clean so things are going to get DONE this week. I’ll be saying goodbye to the dust bunnies and hello to a sparkling clean floor VERY soon!
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!
