15 Minute, One Room, 4-Step Spruce Up

You’ll need:

1. Broom or sweeper

2. Vacuum (if you have rugs or carpet)

3. Ability to kick it into high gear



1-5 min.

Work clockwise around the perimeter of your room, straightening and picking up any items that belong somewhere else.  Put those items by the room’s exit, to take on your way out.

5-10 min.

If you have tile, wood or laminate flooring, sweep and mop (if you only have time for one of those – sweep).  If you have rugs or carpet, vacuum.

10-15 min.

Grab the items that belong elsewhere.  If you have time, put them in the rooms where they belong.  If you don’t, put them in an out of the way place – or under a bed (LOL)!

The goal here is to make the entryway or your family room look neat.  You can do a deep-cleaning later, when you have more time.
