This post is PART II of a series of posts…mostly for me….but hopefully you can benefit from some of them too. I am hanging up lists of 5, 15, 30 and 60 minute homemaking tasks that I know I can do in that amount of time. So, when I have a few extra minutes throughout the day I can choose one or two and accomplish more during the day. A couple of weeks ago I shared PART I which was the 5 minute tasks that you can find HERE and today I am sharing the list of tasks I can accomplish in 15 minutes or less around the house.
15 Homemaking Tasks that you can accomplish in 15 minutes or less:
- Clean and dust your laundry cabinets. Throw away or donate unused or broken items.
- Vacuum all bedrooms.
- Wash the windows and window sills in one bedroom. I love sparkling windows! After two weeks of this chore you should have all your windows clean and sparkly.
- Wipe down all of the door frames on one floor of your house. This task is one I often forget about, but those door frames do get dusty too!
- Unload and load the dishes in the sink and counters. I try to do this job in the morning after breakfast and at night after dinner. I love waking up to a clean kitchen.
- Clean a shower or bathtub.
- Clean 3 toilet bowls. Have all of your cleaning supplies in a small caddy that you can carry from bathroom to bathroom to make this process faster.
- Sort and fold one load of laundry. You might even be able to get it put away if you are a fast folder.
- De-Clutter one closet. Donate unused clothing and items that you no longer wear. Use garbage bags to make the process go faster.
- Clean out one drawer or cupboard in your craft room. Notice I only said one…otherwise I would be doing that task all day 😉
- Clean out your kitchen junk drawer. I usually do this once a month…or when the drawer won’t close….whichever comes first.
- Clean up your pet’s area. Sweep up extra food, wash pets’ dishes and wash the pet bed.
- Clean up your shoes in your closet. Donate any shoes you no longer wear and arrange them in a shoe caddy or shoe rack.
- Iron 5 items of clothing. I have a love/hate relationship with ironing…but I love to finding freshly pressed items in the closet.
- Change the sheets on your bed. Throw dirty sheets in the wash and then put clean ones on the bed.
- Clean out the toy box. Throw away any broken items and donate toys that are still in good condition but not played with anymore.
