Default Thursday 5 Minute Challenge!!!!

When this thread pops up in your New Replies, stop what you're doing (unless you're ), set your timer for 5, and go on a cleaning frenzy until the timer goes off! Then sit back down and post what you've done in that five.

Do this Every time you see the thread and you'll have things clean in no time. . .

GO!!!

Default Re: Thursday 5 Minute Challenge!!!!

I've just got to do this today. We are starting school next week so want to get as much of the houswork out of the way since I probably won't be able to focus on it until I get in the swing of things.

stripped beds and started first load of laundry
tidied bedrooms
folded and put away laundry that has been sitting in laundry room

Did more kitchen clean-up, which is so dumb because my kitchen was spotless like 2 days ago, and it's taking me all morning to get it back in order. . .

I also cleaned up the pee mess that Leo made on the kitchen floor.
