Multitasking Millennial Mom Spring Cleaning Hacks!

Multitasking Millennial Mom Spring Cleaning Hacks               


By Laura Dellutri


Spring Cleaning?  How can you fit that in your busy life? Here's the secret.... Multi-tasking by minutes.  You do it every day of your life.   Think about it, you feed the baby, while you read Buzz Feed while holding your 3 year old who is playing Angry birds on your smartphone, while you are eating a sandwich.  4 tasks in less than a minute!  You are savvy, and part of the best multi-tasking generation ever.  You can Spring Clean your home by incorporating cleaning minutes into your daily multi-tasking routines.

Gone are the days of all day Spring Cleaning. Don't feel pressed to meet Mom's or Grandma's expectations. It's your home, your world, and it is totally different than theirs was. Do what you can, when you can.  Stand at the front door and look at your home visually.  How does it look? Does it smell odor free?  Get those two things under control and you will appear domesticated and spiffy to guests. 


Look at it like you are shopping on Amazon for an Iron Man Mask for your Super Hero. You can do that whole transaction in less than 5 minutes.  That's all you need is 5 minutes and your house will become magically cleaned in small increments by multi-tasking.  


If you have been feeling pressed about cleaning, incorporate these tips in your multi-tasking day and be sure to SHARE me with all your social media friends!
