These are great ideas! On days when I really don’t feel like cleaning anything, but really need to, I’ll set the clock for 30 minutes or an hour and just clean as much as I can in that timeframe. I always start with whatever I think is the most obvious mess– usually picking up toys and then sweeping.

Great list of doable chores! I like to do chores like these during commercials. They really add up! :)

Sadly, I would have to say it would take me more than 10 mn to take care of our junk drawer. The rest of them are great suggestions!

Ha! I was going to say the same thing that Nicole said! We have 2 junk drawers in the kitchen…that’s ok though since we technically have 2 families in the same house, right!? :)
