Secrets of Success

Avoid House-Cleaning-
D. D.



If I'm cleaning 1 room and find something that belongs in another room, I go to the other room and find myself cleaning in there. Instead, I now use empty laundry baskets to hold all the things that go in other rooms. When I'm done in room 1, I take the basket of stuff that belongs in room 2 and put them away, then room 3, etc. That way, I avoid running from room to room and I actually get at least 1 room completely clean! emoticon

  • I do the same thing, I put things in a pile for each room/person and then when I finish with that room I put stuff away or let that person put their own stuff away. - by SCROSS6
  • I am with you on this one. I move from one place to another to put something away and then find something to do in that room. I work in that room until I need to put something in another room and process keeps going. Sometimes I never do get my original task complete. - by HMARTO

    That sounds like me ---I'm very right-brained and get distracted if I move from room to room. I'll have to try your method. It sounds like it might work for me. - by STORMY724
