Roundup of spring cleaning and decluttering tips

We had some almost spring weather this weekend so my natural urge to throw out all of the things came into effect, so I thought I’d share a recap today of my favourite spring cleaning and decluttering tips … 
My top 5 tips on how to start reducing the amount of stuff you have. If the thought of decluttering gives you heart palpitations, don’t worry. I’ll take you through it step by step. I got your back. 
To this day, I still do my 10 minute morning tidy every morning. I know this may induce stink-eye, but just trust me and try it out. 


If your favourite rug is looking a bit worse for wear after the winter season, check out my blog post / life hack on how to bring it back to nearly new. I promise it’ll blow your mind. 


I wrote an article for Image Interiors & Living Magazine about 6 steps you can take to lead you to a cleaner, happier and calmer home [and yes, you can read the full article in the link above! You may need your reading glasses though as the font is small]. 


I only blogged this tip 2 weeks ago, but I got a huge reaction from it and in keeping with how to repair a very worn rug, this tutorial works on repairing scratched leather, regardless of who has destroyed it – feline, canine, children or the husband kind. 
And if the idea of good organisation makes you geek out, then I’d strongly suggest checking out Sarah’s Organised Chaos blog as well as Maria’s new blog, Exploring Minimalism. Some great ladies with encouraging and creative blog posts on how to cull the crap. Bring on the spring!

    Some great posts here! I just had another look through, to relive old memories and get me inspired again!
    This is very timely, as I ordered a book the other day which came today – 'The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying' by Marie Kondo. It's supposed to be good, so we will see! I'm going to give it a read, follow it's suggestions and document it on Exploring Minimalism. And on that note – THANK YOU for the blog mention – I did a double take when I saw that!! Hold on, that's my blog! I could kiss you.

      Ohhhhh that sounds like a great book. I can't wait to read your review over on Exploring Minimalism. Soon, I hope! And save the kisses for April.
