Spring Cleaning Challenge Week 1 - Kitchen Week




This past week I have been participating in week 1 of a 6-week Spring Cleaning & Organising Challenge by 'Our Organised Hive' (check out their facebook page here). 

'Our Organised Hive' posted a master list of what we would be doing during week 1, which was kitchen week, and each day there were just a few jobs to get done, to make it easier and more manageable. 

I really enjoyed this style of challenge, and being accountable to my facebook page (click here to 'like' my page and follow along!) and to 'Our Organised Hive's' page meant that I forced myself to do just a little bit each day. I loved that at the end of 7 days, my kitchen was sparkling!
