    I had already finished my kitchen this morning so I set my timer and washed out my fridge, just a quick wash but I usually leave it thinking it takes too long, it only took 6 minutes!!! Then I started a load of laundry and mixed my fabric softener with water.
    I can't wait for the next one. I was actually just going to skip this one but decioded to just do something else instead. I'm glad I did!!

    Kids actually let us sleep in today (we have a BBQ last night with some friends - so we're all exhausted - but the house is a mess!)

    I'm still sipping my coffee - but I'll try to jump in later!

    #3: Now we’re in the bathroom.

    Do as much of this as you can in 15 minutes:
    Put all the dirty clothes and towels into your laundry basket
    Put all the trash into a trash bag
    Put anything that doesn’t belong in the bathroom into the box
    Give the inside of the toilet bowl a quick scrub (30 seconds, MAX) with a toilet brush
    Wipe down the sink, mirror and counters
    If you still have time left over, go through your medicine cabinet and check the expiration dates on everything. Toss anything that is out of date.

    When the timer goes off, STOP! Remember, it’s about progress, not perfection.

    I finished the living room challenge, I still need to vacuum.

    About the bathroom, clearly I have been neglecting it, thanks for making me go in there and face my mess. In my 15 minutes I:

    Cleared the counters, putting bathroom things in drawers and cabinets and putting things that don't belong in a bag

    Put laundry in basket

    Emptied all trash

    Scrubbed sinks and counters

    Scrubbed toilet


    I could have spent a lot of time in there, and will probably devote a chunk later this week.

    Bathroom is done, all the picking up and general staightening is done early in the morning so I washed the toilet, floors, sink and counters. It looks so good all I have to do in there is the bathtub.

    #4: This challenge is for the master bedroom:

    Do as much of this as you can in 15 minutes. You can do it!
    Make the bed (2 or 3 minutes, TOPS)
    Put all the dirty clothes in your laundry basket or in a hamper
    Put all the trash in your trash bag
    Put anything that doesn’t belong in the bedroom into the box you have from earlier
    If there are any clean clothes lying around, either fold them and put them away or hang them up in the closet
    If you still have time left after all this, straighten whatever is on your nightstand and dresser.

    Again, when the timer goes off, STOP! You don’t have to finish today, you just have to make progress.
