The 10 Minute Tidy Homemaking Routine

This morning I’m heading out to the dentist and didn’t think I’d have time to tidy before leaving. I thought about just waiting until I returned to clean but was in no mood to come home and have to clean up.

I decided to focus my 10 minutes of homemaking efforst on the area I’d need cleaned the most once I returned. Instead of making my bed and wiping down the bathroom this morning I decided to get the kitchen ready so that I could start dinner once I returned.
