How To Create Calm Out Of Chaos
The Magic Three
- 52 Pick-up Challenge
- Empty All Trash Cans
- Clean The Kitchen
52- Pick-up Challenge
Here is the deal, there is no way to make a huge impact with the 52- Pick-up challenge if the house is in massive chaos unless we have all hands on deck.
Challenge each child in the house to put away 52 items in less than 15 minutes! Do not award a prize, just a big hug and maybe a chance to choose one of the dinners this week.
Empty All Trash Cans
There is nothing that creates clutter more quickly than not having a place to put trash. If you have children, make SURE to add trash bags of some sort in each can because they will get stick and nasty very quickly. Take the trash to the outdoor bins ASAP! Don’t let it sit and gather up positive energy by staring at your with its ugly trash bag self.
Clean the Kitchen Fast
1. Throw away any trash sitting around ( You know because the trash cans was over-flowing)
2. Put away stray items.
3. Unload Dishwasher and/or Load or hand wash and dry dishes.
4. Wipe top to bottom- Windows, cabinets,appliances, counters.
5.. Sweep and Mop the Floor
