Markets and Community are taking the 20 Days to Organise & Clean your home Challenge


With our Spring Racing Carnival Campaign kicking off, Markets and Community have decided to do some spring cleaning, yes, I am taking on the challenge set by The Organised Housewife to spring clean my home.

I would love to share this journey with you and it would be great to see your feedback on it.  You are welcome to join the challenge too.  Check out The Organised Housewife’s website.


This was certainly a challenging task, I couldn’t keep up; sorry The Organised Housewife.  But I have been everything at my own pace and the tips are amazing.  I don’t have to go to google anymore to find out how to clean something I just go into the organised housewife’s blog to see how to do it.


Ok, I have not been able to keep up between working on our Spring Carnival Campaign, entering markets, stalls and fairs into our website, and working on the GO Festival, but I am getting onto it slowly.  My lovely hubby is helping when he can.

But I can say I have this lovely clutter free kitchen bench top and it looks so good.  Loving this challenge.

I saw this great post on the organised housewife yesterday.

Had a good chuckle.

Yes, I am a day late, but am in full swing to catch up from yesterday…finished putting in some more businesses for our Spring Racing Carnival Campaign and now off to do my The Organised Housewife Challenge.

That kitchen looks scary!!!!

Getting Ready for Tomorrow 02/09/2012

I am starting my 20 day challenge tomorrow, we are starting off with the kitchen.  Ummm why does The Organised Housewife have to start with the hardest area…I know…once that is completed we can breeze through the rest…ummm off to bed so I can think about cleaning my kitchen….

Oh yeah…the waking up early and making hubby’s lunch was a once off!!!

Pre Challenge Task 3 – 30/08/2012

Morning routines, now I have that pretty much sorted, but I did wake up 10 minutes earlier and even made my hubby’s lunch…I haven’t done that since we first got married.  Waking up 10 minutes earlier certainly gives you enough time to get yourself organised a bit without the chaos that comes ahead when the chipmunks wake up.

Might do a declutter of the toy box.  Get Mst. to pick some toys to give to the needy children.

Pre Challenge Task 2 – 28/08/2012

I seem to have everything I need for my cleaning kit, I do need to buy Gumption (Never heard of it, but seems to be something that works well).

Can’t wait for tomorrow’s task.

Pre Challenge Task 1 – 27/08/2012

I have decided to download the forms and go paperless, instead of the printing and putting it on a folder.  Already breaking the rules and it hasn’t even started.  I am pretty excited by taking on this challenge.
