Blitz it Friday

I've been working on changing up my routines this week. The Blitz is one thing that has worked really well for me, I'm keeping it. In previous weeks I've learned that short frequent Blitzes are best for me. This week I'm Blitzing my master bedroom. It has become quite a mess, so I've been spending 30 concentrated minutes on it each day.
Monday....30 minutes of folding clothes & putting them away
Tuesday....30 minutes of picking up books & toys & getting it out of my room(kids stuff)
Wednesday...30 minutes sorting out of season clothes & deciding what to keep
Thursday...30 minutes sorting extra sheet sets for the whole family's beds & getting them out of my room
Friday...30 minutes gathering random junk & getting it out of my room.
This adds up to 2 1/2 hrs total. Time that I would NOT have spent on my room if I weren't changing up my Blitz routine. In addition to using the Blitz to work on my room, I also used the laundry basket method....fill the baskets with things that need to go somewhere else, designating one basket for each other area. Once the picking up portion was completed I took the baskets to the various areas of the house to put the stuff away.
I am getting very close to being able to rearrange the furniture in my master bedroom & do some redecorating!!!

Wow! That is some serious blitzing! I need to try that on my room... I just don't know if I'm committed enough to doing it every day! Great job.
