Ten Minute Cleaning Frenzy

I think Flylady calls it the “ten minute fling-boogie” but don’t quote me on that, it’s been a long time since I checked out the queen of clean’s website!

Yesterday after lunch, we girls warmed up (stretched, jogged in place, did jumping jacks), turned on our favorite “cleaning CD”, and set the oven timer for ten minutes. Our goal: to get the living room as clean as possible in ten or less! Even toddler got excited…

On “go” everyone pitched in…toys got put away, dusting cloths and broom got put to work, rugs got shaken (outside!)…we even had time to haul the vacuum cleaner out for the hard-to-reach spots! Wow, 8 hands can get a lot done in ten minutes!

Psyche your kids up and give it a “fling”, it’s kind of fun, and even when the buzzer goes the motivation is still there to get everything back in place–quick! My girls went on to tackle their room…

Pretty good mileage for 1/6th of an hour…

  1. Great idea! Are you free to come have some ‘flinging fun’ at my house? :-) Ten minutes isn’t too long to spend tidying up. In a week :-) Just kidding.

  2. Lol, once a week is about too much when it comes to dusting, don’t you agree? πŸ˜‰

    It’s a lot of “playing up the fun” for the kids’ sake. They’re still young and gullible!
