10-minute clutter hacks - KITCHEN

Here are some more quick and easy tasks that we can do when we have a spare 10-15 minutes. Or even just during the commercial breaks while watching TV.

Remember you're not going to find big blocks of time to organise a room.

Start using the little bits of time that you DO have.

These are some tasks you can do in the kitchen:

What can you do in 5-10 minutes?

  1. load or unload the dishwasher
  2. if you do dishes by hand (like we do), pack the dishes away
  3. pack lunches for the next day
  4. write out your shopping list
  5. wipe down your kitchen counters
  6. sweep the floor
  7. mop the floor
  8. prepare the vegetables for supper tomorrow
  9. tidy a cupboard
  10. organise something

What are some other kitchen tasks you can do in 10 minutes?

I love just doing a quick sweep of the fridge and throwing things out, or emptying a drawer and getting rid of things... very refreshing to throw out the old!
I'm praying for you Marcia.

I have one for you Marcia... I can clean out the fridge in 10 minutes. The only reason I can do this is because I try to maintain it so that when I have to clean it out, it's less painful. Believe me, I hate to clean out the fridge!

Great ideas, I think many times we believe that if we don't have time to do it all then we don't do anything. You can accomplish a lot in 15 minutes!

Great ideas, Annie and Megan.

Happy Housewife - exactly, you can actually clean your entire kitchen in a couple of 15-minute sessions :)
