Blitz it Friday #38
Updated: Feb 24
Well, be careful! The Organizing Mommy is on a blitz again. Things are flying, glasses are breaking, and stuff is getting hauled outta here!
So, I’ve been doing several days of blitzing through out the house. Call it Spring Cleaning, if you like. I was moving so fast, I did not even contemplate before and after pictures. But I did do this for you. Just tonight after dinner, I decided to blitz the kitchen.
Here’s my unsuspecting family at the table before I kicked them out.
So, first things first: put away all food and clear off table.
Rinse off dishes and soak them in the sink.
Spray down counter, stove, micro.
Load the dishwasher, start it running.
Set up for hand washing.
Clear out some things from the fridge and wash those dishes also.
All of the above was done in 30 minutes.
Handwash for 15 minutes without stopping.
7 minutes of drying and putting away clean items.
7 minutes left: wipe off counter, sweep floor, remove items from kitchen that do not belong in it. Done with 3 minutes to spare.
Call up kids for their blitz.
Oh yeah. This is a picked up kitchen!
Here’s a few of the things from the all week blitz: a newly arranged play area with (a lot) less stuff cluttering it up. What you do not see: A big pile of toys in black garbage bags that were exported out of the house in a most clandestine fashion.
If you are new to blitzing, here are some other links on the topic:
Basically, blitzing is forcing ourselves to focus for a set period of time on hands-on tasks.
Also, blitzing with kids is a blast if you are an airchair general.
Glad you could join us! Now you have MANY choices about using the blitz. You are welcome to do/ try any or all of them…. and so many photos to choose from!
And for you guys who like to move slowly, try plodding.
