30 Minute Cleaning Challenge

Do you procrastinate about getting chores done or just hate looking at the big picture so you do nothing at all? Well if you’re up for the challenge I encourage you to follow along in my monthly “30 Minute Cleaning Challenge”. I know for me I work better from a set list of things I would like to get accomplished, and if I break that list down into simpler ways to do the work it seems to get done. 


Here’s how it will work: I will pick an area to work on for the month along with a weekly challenge. Everything on the list can be done in 30 minutes or less. For instance week one is to clean, and organize the inside of your upper kitchen cabinets. You don’t have to work steady for 30 minutes you can break the challenge up into 10 minute intervals, a cupboard a day or whatever works best for your schedule. Believe me you can accomplish this in the allotted time. 


30 Minute Cleaning Challenge

By the end of the year I plan on working my way from room to room getting all those hidden spots neat, tidy, and organized. While you’re at it keep a couple of boxes in the room with you, one for donate and one for recycle. No need in stuffing those unwanted items back into the cupboards. This challenge will keep you on top of all those areas of your home that are easily neglected.


For me I have lived in our new home for 6 years now and it amazes me how many things have fallen into that, “just stuff it here” spot rather than put it in it’s designated place. I know you all can squeeze 30 minutes of time into your schedule once a week so come join in on the cleaning frenzy. 


I’ll be back, with pictures at the end of each week to show you how my Week #1 Challenge went.

      Jane, I think lists make it all more manageable and as we get older a big project looks like a lot to do. I like being able to break it into smaller projects to get the job done.

    I’m working on something similar to stay ahead of it all. It is easier to do small amounts before it gets away from you which can happen pretty easily. Remember to put on some good music and have fun!

      Cindy, it is amazing how fast a home can get away from you. We built 6 years ago and moved nothing from the old place, we started over, and amazingly things are stacking up again. It will be nice to get everything weeded out again.

    Hi Dawn,

    I came across your website while searching for easy organizational schedules… I’m just wondering if you have saved the other 11 months somewhere? I’d love to have a copy of them 🙂

    thanks in advance,
