Favorite Things #7 & #8
See...nice, new one (above) old one (below). We use the living tarnation out of these things.
But here is another nice one. Flip it on one end and it is a timer and the other end is a clock. Convenient.
See a drawer (labeled - see my previous post on my labeler) with nuthin' but timers. Happy, happy, joy, joy...
There's even one in there that is from the Dollar Tree. It is especially nice to let the girls have one of these to keep in their bathroom to time teeth brushing. But, don't ask me what bookmarks are doing in the timer drawer.
Having timers will afford you to do stuff like this. Which is another one of my favorites. It is a complete list of things I need to do to clean my house complete with approximate times to complete each task. It is one of Sandra Felton's ideas. With this list, I can clean the entire house systematically and most efficiently. However, the very thought of cleaning the whole house at one time makes me want to pass out. But if I only have 23 minutes. I know I can Vacuum upstairs. Which seems to make the task a little less intimidating. But let's be honest. I usually have more than 23 minutes to spare. I just choose to use them sitting here at this life-sucker.
Now, go bless your house and clean something!
