Since it's rare both my children are napping at the same time, I'm going to try and complete my speed cleaning tasks after the kids are in bed for the night. It's that time of day when the house is “tidy”, supper dishes are cleaned up, and the kids are finally in bed asleep. For me there is a short window of time where I would like to eke out just 10 or 15 minutes more of my day. Enter speed cleaning. I’m kind of keeping a list of things (in my head) I’d like to get done.
Last night it was under the kitchen sink. So at 8:37 I sat down and reorganized all my cleaning supplies, battery container, boxes and paper bags (that I save for my organics green cart). At 8:46 I was done. Granted I didn’t clear everything out and scrub down the cupboard like I should have but it feels much more organized now. Here is a before and after picture. And yes the curtain rod to store squirt bottles was something I found on Pinterest (although it doesn’t take the weight of lot of full bottles.) I next want to tackle our family bathroom. Maybe one drawer a night. And hopefully in the next few weeks I can have a more organized and clean house...before the chaos of going back to work full-time begins.
