When Cleaning A Room,Take 2 Things Out Or Put 2 Things Away!


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

I have a " work-in-progress"room I am cleaning~~the scrapbook room [or as we scrappers say-the "scrap" room]! I am trying to get it ALL cleaned ,but with a preschooler under foot and all the housework this stay-at-home mom is doing,it's not HIGH on the list [my reason--I can close and lock the doors!--though I DEARLY LOVE TO SCRAPBOOK AND WANT TO FINISH IT!]. So,for now, when I pass by the room or go into it,I ALWAYS try to put TWO things back in their place or take them out to where they should

be--another room,the BIG trash can outside,etc. This HELPS ME feel that SOMETHING IS GETTING ACCOMPLISHED in that room ,even if it is a small way of cleaning up~[Note: it IS a very small room!].

    Another great ideal!! I am in my scrap room / laundry room/ workout room / office every day logging in my spark minutes. I should be able to pick up 2 items to either store, donate, or trash. Thanks for the tip. emoticon

    Great idea!! I love scrapbooking too, but I don't have enough time to do it.

    And for me, the hardest part is getting started! If I incorporate your ideas then I'll probably *want* to spend longer on it--it's just getting STARTED. Thank you so much for this secret! emoticon
