Gather all needed supplies, as this will save time in having to go from room to room to get what you need. Clean one room at a time, and if music motivates you to move faster, by all means, turn it on and turn it up!

What you'll need:

  • Trash Bag
  • Laundry Basket or plastic tub
  • Hand-held duster (Swiffer)
  • Broom and dustpan
  • Vacuum

Get Started:

Gather all garbage and put in trash bag. 

Put everything that does not belong in the living room into the laundry basket or tub. This is not the time to put these things in their proper place--you can do that later when you have more time.

Dust all surfaces with hand-held duster (I love my Swiffer!). This is not the time to polish the furniture--stay focused!

Straighten any areas that need it---pillows on couch, shoe racks, rugs, etc...

Sweep and/or vacuum floors. You don't have to remove every single dust bunny in every corner of the room.

Put trash out and put supplies away (or move them to the next room that needs to be tackled). If you have any time left, you can put the items in the laundry basket/tub away. If not, tuck it into a closet for now.
