The 15 Minute Rule
If you're at all like me, you find you barely have time to clean and the messes seem to be never-ending! Especially, if you have children! Now, I'm not a neat freak, but I try not to be a complete slob either! I find most people fall within the large gray area between the anal retentive cleaners and the folks you see on hoarders. So if you are one of the "gray" people, actually if you're a slob too, listen up!
I've found a simple trick to cleaning up when you don't have time is to set your kitchen timer for 15 minutes. Take those 15 minutes and power clean!!!!!! You will be shocked and amazed at how much you can get done in those 15 minutes!
So, set those timers and happy cleaning!
