Secrets of Success

Laundry Basket Pick-Up Game




Start a load of laundry, then grab an empty laundry basket, set a timer, and go from room to room and pick up anything in each room that doesn't belong there. Make one circuit to pick-up and one circuit to deliver, emptying the basket. If you noticed trash while doing Pick-Up, set the timer again and empty and pick-up all the trash.

When you are done you'll have a feeling of accomplishment from picking up and rebooting the laundry.

  • I like this idea. You can also get the benefit of running up and down stairs. - by DS79705

  • I like this game! I turn on my pedometer at the same time. For me, I feel doubly productive that way.
    emoticon the clutter! - by _MAOMAO_
    It IS a great idea... if you're not easily distracted! I remember doing it years ago, ending up with a laundry basket full of "who knows what" that ended up in storage! Thankfully, I'm doing better! emoticon - by JLSEWS
  • This is a great game to play. My house is till a mess since I moved recently. I will have to try it. - by BECKYI
  • This is a great game to play with the kids! In my house everyone has an assigned room to clean(in addition to their bedroom). So this would be really neat in my house! It could be judged by how fast people got to the finish line like a race or how many things they returned to their place... I love it! Thank you! - by LMATTHEWS76
  • excellent idea! - by TWINKIEQUEEN
