One excuse we often use for not getting things done at home is “I don’t have time.” Many of our readers have heard me tell of the 5 minute rule I started using years ago when I first got sick.
15 Things You Can Clean in 5 Minutes In The Kitchen


I was too weak to do much but I found that, if I made myself get up during the 5 minute TV commercial, do what I could in that 5 minutes and then rest, I got an amazing amount of things done.


Here’s a list to help you start making those little 5 minute blocks of time more productive:

5 Minute Quick Clean-Up In The Kitchen

  • Clean out the silverware drawer.
  • Put the dishes in the dishwasher.
  • Dry the dishes.
  • Set the table.
  • Clean off one shelf in the fridge.
  • Clean off one shelf in the pantry.
  • Sort through one shelf in the cabinets.
  • Sweep the floor.
  • Wash a window or glass door.
  • Wipe down all the back splashes.
  • Clean under the kitchen sink.
  • Wipe down the outside of the kitchen cabinets.
  • Wash a few knick knacks.
  • Wipe down the outsides of appliances.

Using this list as an example, make a cleaning list for other rooms in your home. Keep it handy. Then, when you have a couple of minutes, pick something off of your list and do it.
