Who wants to join me for a cleaning game this morning?

I'm in a couple groups related to cleaning but it never seems like people want to actually be social in the groups, which is what I thought the point of them was for. WHy get online on CafeMom just to post your list and then disappear?
I was hoping I could find someone to play some timed games with me.

We'll set our timers for 10 minutes or less and then run and do something on our list!

  • Sounds like fun and a good motivator! I'm not in any of these groups, but I'd like to play :)

  • Okay, reporting back...cleaned up the breakfast dishes. Washed the kitchen table and wiped down the bathroom. I also was interrupted a couple of time by my 5 month old baby girl. I actually had fun with it...trying to get in as much as I could. I also found I got more done because while doing one chore I was thinking on the next thing I could do!!! Great idea!!!

  • Ok, in 10 minutes I decluttered the sink and vanity, did up the bathroom trash, swept the floor, and put the baking soda and vinegar on the tub, toilet and sink to soak for a few. Not much accomplished!

  • ok. i'm back!
    whew! I made my bed up first. Then I sorted two baskets of laundry out onto the bed. I had to do a little bit of folding because of them getting wadded up. I Filled up the washing machine with the dirty clothes that I picked out/up and started it. I was pouring the detergent in as the timer went off.
    Now I'm sitting down for a little rest with my 10 1/2 month old and sipping on some OJ. I'd have been done typing this earlier but my baby keeps pounding8 on the keyboard lol

  • Good job girls! It makes it fun, especially if you listen to music. i didn't this time around but a while back I made up a playlist on my iphone of cleaning songs that are upbeat and fun.
    I think we all got a good amount done. A little break and ten minutes more and we've done 20 minutes of pretty vigorous cleaning!
