Took all of her clothes out, put them in bags, and put them in the garage for her to come and get. If she doesn't come and get them soon, they will be washed, and put into my closet.

Pick a "problem" area in your bedroom and clean it up. Or any bedroom. Just quickly. I'm going to clean off hubby's art area and filing cabinet.

Straighten a bedroom for 5 minutes. I'm going to clean up the boys' room because they are about to go to bed in a bit.
Did this lastnight, but I am going to do it again right now, so that when they are ready for bed, there's no cleaning that needs to be done. I prefer that their room is completely spotless when they go to bed.

Clean something in one of your bathrooms. I am going to clean the vanity/sink in my bathroom.

Do something with laundry. I am going to start another load, and put a load away.
Started a load, and put some away. I've got too much laundry to do...

Pick a cabinet, and clean it out. I'm cleaning out the cabinet under my kitchen sink. It is part of the "chores" this week anyway... might as well!

Clean off the counters in your kitchen, either clutter, or wipe them down.
Cleaned off the counters, and took out the trash. Still have dishes to do.

Vacuum a room. I am going to vacuum my kiddos' room.

Do something in your livingroom. I am cleaning up the TV table. It's got four shelves, and it tends to be a catch all when we walk in from somewhere.
Cleaned off the TV shelf. It wasn't all that bad, since I just did it a couple weeks ago as well.

Do something with the laundry. I am going to start a load. Averaging one load a day. Not too bad.

I've got one in the washer and one in the dryer, neither are finished...

Do something in your living room. I need to pick up so I can vacuum.

ETA - I had a pan left from last night that didn't make it into the dishwasher, so I took care of it... and made tea and got the wee one a drink.
Put some clean dishes away, and washed some dirty ones.

Clean out a cabinet or drawer in your kitchen. Even if it's just straightening. I am going to clean out the tupperware cabinet. It needs it, desperately.

Haha. It's actually kind of fun. I'm so slow because I am working in between cleaning chores. So I can only do 2-3 things an hour, most of the time. This game really helps to keep me motivated. I just started at the top, and I go all the way down and do everything, in order. This works really well for me. I don't miss anything, and it makes it fun to play the game with myself, lol.

Cleaned up hubby's area. Looks a lot nicer in that corner now.

Pick a spot in your livingroom, or main area of your house to clean up. I am going to clean off/dust the fireplace above the mantle area.
