I have just purchased a book called:
"Simplify your Time: Stop Running and Start Living!"
by Marcia Ramsland.
Here are the 3 books she has written.
I want all 3 of them!
I haven't even finished reading her book, but have already put into practice some things that I've read.
Here is a tip Marcia gives:
Try and see what you can accomplish in 2 minutes!
Seriously! So, I put on a pot of water to boil for supper.
...and decided to tackle my utensil holder.
|There are a LOT of items that are never used in here. It may not look bad to you, but it's overflowing!|
After dumping everything out, here is what I saw:
|All I can say is..."yuck"! And, no...they're not bugs! LOL! Looked like Ramen Noodles to me.|
Here is what I have kept, and now everything is handy and easy to get at. Looks much nicer!
And, all this before the water boiled!!
So, I decided to keep going and see what else I could accomplish in just a few minutes, or more than a few.
This small area is between our pantry and refrigerator.
So, the next time I feel that I don't have 'time' to clean/organize/declutter, I will remind myself:
I can do ANYTHING in 2 minutes, or any small amount of time!
- Swish and swipe toilet
- wipe down toilet, sink and bathroom countertop
- put dishes in dishwasher
- throw a load of wash in washer
- change clothes from washer to dryer
- make bed (this takes LESS than 2 minutes!)
- spot wash the kitchen floor
- fill ice cube trays
- read my Bible
- so many more things!
So, what can YOU accomplish in just a few minutes? Feel free to share your pictures and ideas.
