Blitz-It Friday # 6


Hey! It’s time to blitz-it again. For those of you who are just blitzing for the first time, here are some great starting points.

Basically, blitzing is forcing ourselves to focus for a set period of time on hands-on tasks.

Originally, I wrote about the one hour blitz and staying focused.

You can choose any length of time to work and any type of chores to work on. Not everyone has the physical stamina to “stay in the air” for an entire hour. Not to worry. You can make it a 10 minute blitz, every day for a week. (Hey that’s 70 minutes!)

So, this is “recovery week” for us.  We arrived on Monday at dinnertime.  Since we had exhausted ourselves on restaurant food during the week, I opted to cook, despite my dear husband’s offer to eat out again.   So, we got the stuff in but not put away.  

The next day is Tuesday–our big co-op school day.  We made it out the door, at least those who weren’t sick, and went to classes.  So, I didn’t even start working on the Mt. Laundry until Wednesday.  

I don’t know about you, but sometimes the blitz goes really fast, and I get a lot done.  This week everything went VERY slowly.  What I am about to report is not that impressive, in the sense of getting a lot done in a short period of time.  But I hope you, like me, rejoice in any form of work getting done in any length of time–especially when you are feeling tired!

It took two hours.  Instead of starting the laundry, I put all of the dirty clothes in the hallway and then took all of the clothes out of the closet.  Since I have a ton of clothes out anyway, why not change the summer/ spring clothes over?  So, here we are: summer clothes ready to roll.

summer shoes updated too!

Here’s a bag of stuff that is being donated.  (It even left the house today!) Yeah!!  

So, just the sorting and moving of clothes took a 2 hour blitz.

Today, I did a one hour blitz folding the 5 +loads and putting them away, and getting the extra furniture moved out of the bedroom for the free Kirby shampooing.. (and free sales pitch) but We didn’t buy!  I am still shocked at that. Here’s the bedroom with the laundry put away and just the bed in the room…

Hey?  Who’s that sleeping in my bed? 

So, let’s link up and show off ‘yer stuff
