Quick Clean Your Living Room 15 Minutes

I said that I was going to help you get organized every Monday, and my intentions were good. But then this happened:

Looks harmless enough, doesn’t she.

This is Ash. And Ash is 9 oz. of cute high maintenance.

I will be doing a full blog post on Ash in the near future, but let’s just say she did not come to us looking like that. She was a hot mess and we’ve spent the last week nursing her back to health. And last Saturday, when I was supposed to write the blog post, was a day of having her on me for about 20 out of 24 hours.

But now I’m back. And we are going to get your Living Room organized.

Get Ready

Get Your 3 Boxes and 2 Bags together (if you don’t know what I’m talking about, go read this post all about it.)

Get Set

Figure out what area of your living room you’re going to quick clean. Now is not the time start alphabetizing your DVDs. I just want you to put 15 minutes on the clock and pull out only what you can put back in that amount of time. Maybe you need 15 minutes to clean off/out your coffee table. Maybe 15 minutes to attack underneath the stairs. Awesome. Pick an area and work on it for 15 minutes.


Spend 15 minutes a day for the rest of the week cleaning and putting stuff away in your living room. You will make a huge improvement in the next six days (yes, you get Sunday off!)


Every day this week that you clean your living room for 15 minutes, lave a comment on this post and I will enter you to win my book THE WHAT’S FOR DINNER SOLUTION. (I will do anything to help you have more sanity in your life – including bribery…)
