OK, so if you read the previous post, you saw this challenge is going to be a little different than those in the past. To give everyone a good jumpstart, we're doing two at a time. That's right, two tasks, each week, we'll be living in seriously tidy homes in a matter of 5 weeks!
If you are new to the challenge, here are the basics:
- Each week, we add a task (or in this case two) to do each and every day.
- Each task doesn't take more than a couple minutes, so doing the 10 tasks doesn't take long at all!
- Once a week, we check in on the blog to see how we all did for the week. Just post your results in the comments section for that blog post. We'll do our check ins on Wednesdays, but no worries if you are late to respond!
Make the Bed!!
Not much explaining here. Simply making the bed in the morning will get you started on the right foot and in a clean and organized mode. Forget to do it in the morning? No worries, do it when you get home. Trust me, even if it's only made for a couple hours, diving into a neat looking bed at the end of a long day is SO refreshing!
Empty the Sink!I'm a huge advocate of not letting dirty dishes pile up. Having a clean sink will instantly make the kitchen look cleaner. It's a great habit to get into. If you have a dishwasher, and more dishes that night than it can hold, just rinse your remaining dirty dishes and put them on one side of the sink. They can go in when you empty the dishwasher, and since they are already rinsed, it will only take a moment to do so rather than trying to scrape off leftover food from the night before!
So there we have it. This week we are making our beds and emptying our sinks. We'll check in next Wednesday to see how you all did. Did you make your bed today? If not, don't forget to do it now or when you get home!
We'll always end with our recaps.
Week 1: Make the Bed & Empty the Sink!!
