I have always read posts where people have chores that they do every day, or perhaps they are those people who take the time to leave a room as they entered it. I am not one of those people. I am a slob! I leave clothes on the floor and dishes in the sink and I am not ashamed!
However, recently my place has been pretty darn clean and the reason is something I never even considered before- a timer!
See, every night around 9:00-9:30pm, I put on my Anthralin Treatment and it has to sit for 30 minutes (and that increases each week!). I always set the timer on my oven when I do this. Well recently, I began cleaning during that time. I am not sure why, but for some reason setting that timer encourages me to do something productive until the beep sounds. Maybe it is because I resent the treatment taking up such a chunk of my evening?
Anyway, the timer method has been working great. I keep doing the dishes, folding the clothes, vacuuming the floors and other crazy productive things.
So tell me- do you ever set a timer for cleaning? How do you stay on top of household chores?
