We're blitzing on video!!


Remember this little teapot?? This is a special little teapot that I found at a garage sale last week. I did a special video on it! Hope you will enjoy this blitzing teapot.

I was captivated by your video! First of all what a great idea! And second, you sure can get a lot done in 1 hour!!! Good for you.
I thought the chore idea was really fun!

love it!
We had a canister to "draw chores" from for many years. Love to hear your voice as well Jena.

How funny, to find someone else's chores! Great idea!

I only wish I could move that fast ;D

And a question: At the end of the video, when you were loading the dishwasher, I could see something on the counter. Like a long flat rectangular 'coaster' with spaces for drinking glasses? Is that to keep everyone's separate? I'm curious...

Well done on the blitz - I'm newly inspired!

That was awesome--I love your videos! I cannot believe all you accomplished in an hour--and washing windows? I haven't washed my windows (other than spot-cleaning) in all my five years in this house {blushing}. Great job!!!

Wouldn't it be great if we could really move that fast when we needed to? I love your videos and it's pretty amazing how much we can get done in just an hour, isn't it?

This was awesome! I loved it! I think I will have my kids come up with a bunch of chores for "me" (read US) to draw from. You have inspired me. Thanks.

That's a neat idea, but I'm probably addictied to my lists. I love to sit down, write out a list of projects to accomplish and then work down the list, checking them off as I go.

Organizing Mommy said...

Come to think of it, I think I haven't washed windows in a longgg time either. Thankful for the chore chart--even if it is someone else's!

Love it! What a neat find in the teapot too! It's also good to see how much can be done in an hour. Now I'm feeling the urge to do a blitz!

Blessings!

Yay! Fun video! I'm late watching it because I'm usually having my computer time while I'm putting the children down at bedtime, so I can't do videos. But it was worth the wait!

I've done that chore in a jar thing! How funny to find someone else's! This was a lot of fun to watch.

My dh is taking my two older boys camping for a coupla days this week so the baby and I can do some blitzing before school starts.

This was fascinating! It's like you found a "magic" teapot. The video was great. Thanks for sharing. I'm off to make my own little chore slips. Super ideas.

Love the tablecloth on which the tea-pot was sitting!
I really hate cleaning out drawers and cupboards as I have to make decisions where to put the things or if I should throw them out etc.! So for a job like that I would need at least two days of mental preparation before I could take it on. :-)
But I just loved watching you! You sure got a lot done.
