Step 2d – How Long Does It Really Take?

So how long does it really take to fold a load of laundry, empty the dishwasher, or clean a toilet?  I’ll bet the answers would surprise you!  We dare you to take the challenge AS A FAMILY to find out how long each of the jobs you have take.  Post the jobs with the times on the fridge and then if someone in your family (or even you for that matter) complains and thinks it will take forever, you can walk over to the chart and ease their mind.  You can make this a part of a weekly challenge to see if the times can be beat.  Prizes can be given for the most improved times.  Use our good job jar coupons as part of the prizes!  I know it sometimes feels like it takes forever to fold the laundry so we just keep adding to the pile until . . . it does take forever!  Most of the jobs in your home will take less than 5 minutes.  It’s a lot easier to give up 5 minutes at a time than it is to give up 30 minutes.

Time flies whether you’re having fun or not . . . I hope you choose to make your jobs a little more FUN!
