In your Home and Homeschool
As I get my house in order, I find that 5 minute missions are a great way to get stay on track. This is also a fun way to involve the children. Write down little missions on slips of paper and draw one out at a time. Set the timer and turn on some music.
The first thing I do is to write down some key things I need to do. Then, I use my timer and switch from one mission to another. I can break things into 5 minute missions this way.
In doing missions this way, I am able to throw out a lot of excess stuff. I can either toss the items or put them in my box of things to donate. This works great as a part of a 27 Fling Boogie.
With many loads of sheets and laundry, I can use 5 minute missions to keep the laundry going and get all of the bedding washed, dried, and folded. I decluttered items from the linen closet in 5 minute missions as well, which makes putting sheets away a breeze.
My kitchen counters accumulate lots of stuff, so I can do 5 minute missions to deal with the hot spots in the kitchen. I can use another 5 minute mission to unload the dishwasher. A third mission is all I need to do the dishes and shine my sink.
Next, I check my entryway for more items that need to be put away, and I use a basket to put the items to make it faster to put things away throughout the house.
Using my timer and my list keeps me focused. I take little breaks, and I sip my water throughout the day. I also have little sit down breaks throughout the day.
You can accomplish a lot of things using your timer and following the 5-minute rule. It makes a huge difference in my day and in how my house looks.
What can you do in 5 minutes?
Your Zone Mission today is to toss old cosmetics and perfumes. Do a 27 Fling Boogie somewhere else in the house.
Your Home Blessing for today is to toss paper and magazines.
