The "one chore per day" house cleaning list. "This is so doable and covers everything!" First, this is not "one" chore per day - some days it is two or three. Also, these "15-20 minute" chores are things like "Go through each room and put everything away" or deep cleaning everything in all of your bathrooms in under 30 minutes, or doing a week's worth of laundry (washed, dried, folded, and put away) in one day. What NOT To Do: Believe that you are inferior for not being able to deep clean a week's worth of living in what amounts to two and a half hours. (20 minutes x 7 = 2hrs, 20min) And no - most of these things don't take less time just because you do them regularly.
