10 Minute Madness

Hello Friends, I hope you are having a nice relaxing day.
Yesterday I gave you a little glimpse into how I keep my home looking fresh and sparkly (ha ha who am I kidding, right?).
Today I thought I would tell you about the additional things we do to keep things running smoothly. We call it ten minute madness! In the week I pick ten minutes out of my day, normally after dinner and I choose a job that needs doing around the house. I set the timer for ten minutes and then get to it. Here is an example of some things I do:-
Clean microwave
Clean mirrors
Clean oven
Clear out a drawer
Clean a couple of windows
Wipe down marks on walls
At weekends the kids do the same thing, they actually enjoy seeing how many of their books or toys they can tidy in ten minutes.
Do you do a similar sort of thing? If so come and tell me about it. If not give it a go and let me know how you get on!


  1. Hi, found your blog via Mean Queen, so I thought I would say 'hi' . I set the washing machine on which takes about an hour, so that's how long I have to do whatever needs doing, Jo x

  2. Hi Jo, I have not timed how long it takes me to get the daily jobs done. An hour isn't too bad really to keep on top of things is it. I am going to see how long it takes me tomorrow. I always put the washing on first too. Tara x
