Daily Household Challenge Monday 11-21-11

Well it’s Monday, we had another busy but wonderful weekend! I know it’s just going to get busier and busier, but I don’t mind, I love this time of year. So lets start our Monday off with a little cleaning. I had two get togethers at my house this last weekend and my house is definitely showing the effects of that.

The challenges for today are:

  • Clean up the Kitchen, dishes and all.
  • Strip all of the beds and put on clean sheets and bedding.
  • Do a load of laundry.

Have a great day, you can do it!

Daily household challenges Thursday 11-17-11

Daily Household Challenge Tuesday 11-15-11

Hello all! There is only 9 more days till Thanksgiving. Hopefully everyone’s planning is going well. Having daily goals really helps me to stay on track and keep up with my house. So hopefully I won’t be scrambling at the last-minute to get everything in order.

Todays challenges are:

  • The 2 Bag Challenge. Get 2 grocery bags, walk around the house filling one bag with trash and the other bag with items that you don’t use or need anymore. You can give away those items or donate them.
  • Dishes, Dishes, Dishes. Wash all those dishes. Walk around make sure there’s no dirty dishes left around the house. (By your husbands favorite seat on the couch!)

Have a great day, you can do it!

Daily Household Challenge Monday 11-14-11

Wow what a wonderful 4 days with the kids! Our last 4 days have been jammed pack full of fun. We brought the kids to see the new movie Puss & Boots (pretty cute, probably won’t be a classic but still cute). We had a birthday party, 2 sleepovers, the Walk To Cure Diabetes, girl time at the mall, a visit to a science museum, and championship softball games. Whew!!!

It’s Monday now, time to refocus on whats been neglected. My house!!!

Todays challenges are:

  • 20 item pick up. Make your way through every room in your house and pick up 20 items in each room. If there’s not 20 items in a room just pick up what’s there and then move on to the next room. If there is more than 20 items don’t worry we’ll get back to that later.
  • 20 minute clean up. Go back to the room that still needed the most work. Set a timer for 20 minutes and clean untill the timer goes off.
  • Do a load of laundry.

Have a great Monday, you can do it!

Daily Challenge Wednesday 11-9-11

Good morning! I have a confession. I didn’t finish my challenges yesterday. I never made it into my daughter’s room to help her organize. Ohh well!!! I’ll have to get back to that another day. I use these daily challenges as a goal to finish by the end of the day. Sometimes I get them all completed and sometimes I don’t. It’s not the end of the world if chores don’t get done, but it does make me feel better when they do. So todays another day and the challenges are:

  • Get into the room that you tend to ignore the most. My room is the laundry room.
  • Get a grocery bag and walk around the house filling the bag with trash. Don’t stop untill it is full.
  • Do a load of never-ending laundry.

You can do it!

Daily Challenge Tuesday 11-8-11

Hello, all! It’s Tuesday today, already November 8th! If you haven’t yet thought about the upcoming holidays, you better start. Are you going somewhere for Thanksgiving dinner or are you having family over your house? I normally have Thanksgiving dinner at my house, and my Mother, Grandmother, and my Aunts all help me prepare Dinner. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday because it is about family and good food. Whats not to love about that!

Since Thanksgiving will be at my house I have a lot to do to prepare my house for that. So… today’s challenges are:

  • Help the kids organize their rooms. If you don’t have kids just choose a room to organize.
  • Clean all the dishes in the sink.
  • Do a load of laundry. (unless you live alone you should have a load of laundry a day. A load of laundry does not only have to be clothes, yesterday I washed rugs)

Have a great day! You can do it!

Daily Challenge Monday 11-7-11

Wow, the weekends come and go way to fast! Hopefully everyone had a very blessed weekend. It’s monday and it’s time to get back into the swing of things. Once I get the kids off to school the daily challenges can begin. Todays challenges are:

  • The 20 item pick up. I like to start the week with the 20 item pick up because it gives you the opportunity to tidy up all the rooms in the house. So start at one side of your house and make your way into every room in the house picking up 20 items in each room. If a room doesn’t have 20 items, just pick up what is there. If a room has more than 20 don’t worry we will come back to that later.
  • Choose a room in your house that needs the most work and do a 20 minute clean up. Set a timer for 20 minutes and clean untill the timer goes off.
  • Do a load of laundry.

You can do it! Have a great Monday.
