Secrets of Success

Quick Cleaning



I've gotten in the habit of doing small amounts of housework during the commercials of my favorite nightly TV shows. It's amazing what I can get done in the 2-3 minutes of each commercial break! I've managed to get my entire living room clean during "House" - the dishes washed by hand during "Bones" - the bathroom spotless from a single episode of "Big Bang Theory". You really can get a log done - plus you are moving every ten minutes, so burning calories as well!

  • I do this too, and also when I'm doing anything else that's sedentary (computer, reading) so that I don't stiffen up. It really helps! - by SEAWAVE
    Too funny! My Dad taught me this when he caught me playing hooky from school when I was 14...he said 'if you're going to be stupid, be smart about it: clean up during the commercials so that your Mother doesn't go nuts when she comes home!'. 24 years later, I still do it. :) - by SPOTSY
  • I do this also! Redeeming the time and getting to watch and work and exercise all at once! emoticon - by SPARKLEMIST7
