Tip Jar: Housework Playlist

Our Tipster is on vacation this week, which is fine by me because I want full credit for today’s tip for the Tip Jar.  

Do you need motivation to get moving on your household chores this weekend? If you’re like me, you need a “Housework Playlist.”  I love to sing and I love to dance (although I have no business doing either) so songs about dancing are all it takes for me to get up and shake my thang while I’m cleaning that toilet

My all time dream in life is to dance on a lit-up floor like this . . .  

Singing and dancing really helps me get my chores done, even if it takes a little longer than necessary since I’m moonwalking down the hallway.  Download these songs that will encourage you to shake it next time you need some cleaning motivation! 

Baby Got Back, Sir Mix-a-Lot 

Shake it, shake it, shake that healthy butt. Baby got back! 

Can’t Stop, Ozomatli 

You can’t stop, this love, Shake it, Shake it, Shake, Shake it, Shake it

    That list cracked me up! I think you forgot one… “Shake your booty, shake shake shake shake, shake your booty.” When my nephew was little he used to run around the house after taking a bath, singing this song and shaking his naked little booty!
