Cara fully prepared: The Cleanse Martial Arts style

Tomato Timer 002

Put on the crockpot with a simple supper in the morning and there is more time to clean the house, train you body and spa at home with this simple Flipper organization tool as suggested in Sandra Felton’s book “How not to be a Messie”

A Flipper is a spiral bound recipe card hold like this pictured on the left, it stands on it’s own and with a random flip you select a 5 minute to 20 minute project to clean your house and reward yourself at the same time.  Because it was only a paragraph detailing the list I have expanded on the idea using tools from Kate Payne, Skye Alexander and Mindy Starns Clark as well as include my martial arts training into house keeping.
