How Do You Make Cleaning Less Of A Chore?

With Spring in the air and The Cure getting underway, many are looking for ways to kick their cleaning habits into high gear. What helps keep you inspired? Personally we're big fans of a chore chart and a great LP on the turntable to help us round up the dust bunnies. Do you turn on a movie you've seen 100 times? Click on your Ipod? Set a timer? Share your favorite way to make cleaning less of a bore after the jump!

We have a serious collection of 80's metal music that makes us clean like the wind! Records work well for us, if we get sidetracked playing with dusting our toys after a few songs we have to stop, flip the record and we start all over again.

What makes you have a little pep in your step when you have a to do list?
