Happy Homemakers - Cleaning Game!

Yayyyy! Okay, the way this works, is you put a short (2-10 minute) task to do. Everyone goes and does it, comes back, says "Done!" then lists another task to do! Anyone is welcome to join at any point of the "game."

I'll start.

Go clean one of your bathroom sinks.

Do something with the laundry. Put some away, gather dirty, put in wash, or put in dryer. I'm starting a load.

Remember, when you put "done" you have to name something to do. That way everyone stays busy/has something to do.

Done. Put away a load of laundry and brought the basket back down to the basement.

Sweep your stairs.

This brings up a good point (for me).

If you can't do something (I don't have stairs), you can just skip it, and put another task.

Clean up a "problem" area in your living area, quickly!

I wondered about that, actually. But, I needed to do mine, so I listed it anyway.

No, it's totally fine. Not everyone is going to need to do every task listed. The idea is just to name things that YOU need to do, and it'll motivate someone else to do it as well, and maybe recommend things to do that you haven't thought about.

I cleaned up my husband's desk area, because it was horrid. LOL

Take out the trash somewhere and clean out the trashcan (or just one or the other). I'm doing both, in my bathroom.
