Spring Cleaning For People Who Hate Spring Cleaning

2. 15-Minute Magic
Feeling extra lazy about your chores? Break it up into smaller, more time-efficient bursts.

"Rather than get started on a huge spring cleaning task without any end or timer in sight, try to do it in major spurts,"says Karen Lee from Things Around the House

For best results, she advises to start your timer for 15 minutes and get going. "Make quick decisions on getting rid of things, quickly tidy up specific areas, bounce from one area to the next, and just get it done," Lee shares. Once time is up, kick back and relax. You'll have earned it.
