I am in the process of starting a "work club" in my location. I belonged to one where I used to live and miss it greatly.

Basically, you get a bunch of women together to work. You track hours, and say everyone goes and works at Susie's house for 4 hours-painting, or in the garden, or cleaning out the garage. Then the next time, everyone goes to Mary's house. You rotate it.

Basically, if you give them 4 hours, they owe you 4 hours. Of course, we made exceptions. We had one member who was in a wheelchair, but she could still help watch kids or prepare our lunch, and we had one lady who was in her 90's. We did more work for her, than she did for us, but she was a jewel, baked for us and paid us with her love. It was a joy to serve her.

This is a wonderful fun way to serve, save money, meet new lady friends and have some fellowship with them. We normally got together once a month, but during gardening season sometimes we would go from house to house every week. We might work in one garden on Saturday morning, then another one or two in the afternoon. My old group had 6 women in it. We were all either single, divorced or widowed, and we found that always someone in our group knew how to do about everything, saving us many service calls.

We have weekly family "Busy Bee" events. During the event all of us bees swarm into a room armed with cleaning supplies and bins for recycling and garbage, and follow the directions of the Queen or King Bee (usually the commander is the owner of the room).

We set the timer for 10 minutes and go like heck. Upon the timer's announcement to stop, we gather supplies and move to the next room.
In one hour we spruce up the house and then finish with a collective snack.
This has really helped us to learn how to direct, what we really need, and how to take directions.
