If a weekend-in is on the cards but you’re still wanting to be productive, you can never go wrong with a quick spruce-up!

We’ve compiled 10 household tasks to tackle for a rewarding weekend-at-home. Just turn on your favourite podcast and get stuck in!

1. Clear out your wardrobe

Throw it or stow it? Go through your items one-by-one and donate those that you no longer wear. Re-organising your closet is a great way of getting reacquainted with what you actually own.

2. Re-organise the pantry

It’s so easy for pantry items to build up and create dis-organisation and chaos. Transform your pantry with these 5 simple steps.

3. De-clutter 

Having clutter in your home can really make you feel tense. Organise the chaos by getting rid of any unwanted items and find a place for those that remain.

4. Get creating

Try making your own cleaning products or essential oils. Making the switch to all-natural cleaners might seem like a lot of fuss, but it’s really simple. You probably have all, if not most of the ingredients already!

5. Tackle that grout

Nothing ruins a clean bathroom more than the dirty grout between the tiles. Follow our step-by-step guide on how to get rid of that stubborn grime.

6. Spruce up old furniture

Furniture can sometimes need a little TLC every now and then. See our useful guide on how to give your treasured items a new lease of life.

7. Sort out the garage and shed

It’s the easiest place to hoard and dump objects. Once you’ve decluttered the space, think about how you can create specific zones for items to prevent any future pile-ups.

8. Tidy up the linen cupboard

In a dream world, everything in the linen cupboard would be perfectly folded and purposely arranged. However, this is never the case. It always seems to be mixed up and filled to the brim. Our clutter expert has the solution.

Tip: Don’t forget to sit back, admire your work and enjoy your space when it’s done!
