February is known as the month of love – mainly because of Valentine's Day, and the week before, the week of and the week after the holiday meant for sharing love, the definition of love was on the minds of many.

Two Minute Task Round Up #1

Two Minute Task Round Up #1

If a task will take you two minutes or less, do it now. Here are a few things you can do in two minutes or less!

  • Make your bed. It will keep your sheets cleaner and your room neater.
  • Pay a bill.
  • Empty the dishwasher.
  • Clean out 2 file folders. Shred or toss what you don't need to keep.
  • Shred papers from your shredding pile.
  • Sort your mail.
  • Grab your laundry basket and gather everything that doesn’t belong in the living room. Return it to its proper room.

 

Because February is the shortest month of the year, we are talking about small things, small projects and small spaces in your home.
