{Spring Clean} – The 10 Minute Challenge


The sun is out and that means just one thing…..I can see all the dust and stuff lying around the house.  So I’m having a Spring Clean Party!

You don’t have to do a lot, just one 10 minute job you’ve been meaning to do all winter and blog about it.  Mine is the shoe baskets in the hallway.  It’s a great idea to have a shoe basket, but you actually have to have to you know…throw some shoes out when they’re worn or don’t fit anymore! Currently it looks like this:


So my plan is this week when I have a spare 10 minutes, is to turn it out. Put what doesn’t fit and is still good i.e most of Miss L’s shoes to charity. Put the summer ones up in the wardrobe where they should be and clean the winter ones for storage.

It shouldn’t take longer than 10 minutes and will make a massive difference to the hallway.

I’m putting up a Mr Linky on this post so when you’ve done yours and you want to share it – just add it on 🙂

  1. Funny you should mention Spring Cleaning – that’s my plan for this week as I’m off work.

    I am starting on the kitchen today so I’ll be back when I’m done….

    If I’m not back by this evening, send a search party in lol

  2. you’re joking aren’t you? That looks super neat and tidy to me! oh dear, I am coming to the realisation that my housekeeping skills are really below par.

  3. OK I am going to sort out the kids’ DVDs as they are in a right state… hope it doesn’t take longer than 10 mins 😉

  4. Thank you for the nudge.Today I sorted the huge box of playstation/wii games/DVDs that lives next to the TV. It took a bt longer than 10 mins but looks so much better for being done. I might tackle the shoe cupboard tomorrow 🙂

  5. I could! I have my wardrobe, re-bedrooming my bedroom (currently a Lily dumping ground),the dining room to tidy, finish painting the kitchen….I have lots for a series 🙂

  6. I’m trying to spring clean this week. Aim is to get the house tidied before I’m back at work…

  7. What a good idea. I have just moved so strangely organised at the moment, but no doubt all will return to normal very soon. I spring cleaned my clothes at the weekend. That felt very good. There is an award for you at mine.

  8. Hmmm! I’m most impressed. I’ve got lots of bags, boxes and general piles of things that need sorting plus the whole house could do with a once over but, it’s my one day off and…..maybe at the weekend !!!
