Blitz It Friday

Grab My Blog Button!

Yesterday, I set the timer for 30 minutes. I gathered up a load of dark clothes for the laundry and started the washer. I cleared the drying rack to make room for the new batch of clothes. Then I hand-washed an underwire bra. At that point the phone rang and it was my BFF I never get to talk to so I cut the blitz short and answered the call. So it was only a 20 minute blitz.

Today I set the timer for 30 minutes and went to work on a very messy corner of our master bedroom that is currently holding bags and piles of L's outgrown clothes. I was able to sort several bags of clothes into boxes by size and threw out some stained clothes and made a small pile for donation. I wish I could've kept going all day, but I had kids to get back to. Still, it was a great start!

Yes, it was a great start. Yes, I take phone calls too and start again after! When your children are so little, they need a lot of attention, so don't get discouraged with small bursts of progress. So nice to have you this week again!

You always tackle such great areas in your blitzs. I love how you jump into the piles that have been sitting around for a while. I need try that kind of blitz, instead of just cleaning. Thanks for the inspiration!
