I'm not even going to finish this, or give it a star rating or legitimate review. If I did, it would have to be 1 star, because this is the most basic, common sense list of "tips" I've ever seen in my life and I literally found myself shaking my head, going, "Do people really need to be told they can stack their bowls inside of each other to save space? Is this a thing people don't know?" But I'm looking at other reviews and seeing that a lot of people actually enjoy how straightforward and basic these ti ...more

This book is so much more than a book about a tidy-home, it also offers tips, tricks and advice on party planning, trip-planning, hostessing, and more.

Much of this book is common sense, but the author makes a lot of good points.

There are such a variety of topics and tips that I think every person will find at least 1 thing to relate to/find useful.

When I downloaded this book I thought it was just organization tips for your home, so I was a little confused when there was an entire section cove

I am a BIG organizer, so I felt like this book did not really do anything for me or give me any new ideas, but for someone who is young and just starting out or for someone who is messy and wants to become organized this would be a great fit for them. Also, I really liked how it was broken into sections like kitchen, bathroom, bedrooms, laundry etc. Thank you for the opportunity to read and review this book.

When you don't have a car for a month due to a predatory car insurance industry, you can get a LOT of reading done!!

I received a temporary digital Advance Reader Copy of this book from #NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

From the publisher, as I do not repeat the contents or story of books in reviews, I let them do it as they do it better than I do 😸.

Thank you Quatro - Fair Winds Publishing and Netgalley for an ARC in return of my honest review.

This book of 210 hints is organised into rooms of the house and occasions, such as parties, travel etc.

The hints may help someone who is leaving home for the first time, although the book appeared to be aimed at families. I found the hints mostly very commonsense so didn’t really gain anything from this book. I was hoping for something more, especially when one hint under airpl

I was skeptical that I would like this book, but it was perfect! So simple with each chapter having a different room or part of the house, with no big long paragraphs or anything about feng shui. Just lists and more lists, which I LOVE! I will slowly be going through each of these steps in my home.

I don't consider myself a tidy person, yet I'm already doing a lot of the things suggested here. I suppose my house is well-organized, even if it's not always clean! The guidance in this book contains a lot of no-brainers, such as to store all your pajamas together, or put your dirty laundry in a hamper. The author suggests using hooks, baskets, and shelving to group and contain items in specific locations, which I've found useful around my home. What I found more useful was the later sections i ...more

This book of household tidy hints is organised into individual rooms of the home and occasions, such as hosting parties for adults or children, travelling and moving house.

The hints are mostly very common-sense It lacked any photographs - had a few drawings to illustrate things like stacked boxes but nothing useful. The part section for adults and kids sorted of repeated its self as so many if the tips are relevant to both.

I was expecting ideas on how to organize your home and make things easier, most of these ideas are very common sense and things that I do on a daily basis.

Don't let the title give you high hopes. This 200-plus page book will not get your house tidy in 10 minutes. Rather, the book is full of ideas about how to organize each room in your home so that it will be more tidy; these tips are meant to be done in 10 minutes each. It really isn't about decluttering or cleaning, the latter mentioned in the subtitle of the book. I found some of the tips to be super basic and common sense, while others were ideas I had not thought of. Not every tip would be so ...more

This book is a tremendous resource with the intended purpose of helping you create a more organised and tidy home, thereby improving your life generally. While a lot of the suggestions are common sense, there are plenty of ideas here that I have not thought of before, or knew and had forgotten.

This beautiful to look at, well designed book is divided into three different sections:

I am an eternally messy and disorganized person, but even I already do 95% of the things in this book (and don't want to do the few that I don't). I was expecting a book of ways to get tidy but this is BASIC common sense stuff like stack your bowls inside of each other, keep children's toys in storage totes and sort your cookbooks by topic. This might be helpful for someone just starting out on their own, but she talks about kids' stuff and it seems to be written for adults with established home ...more

10 Minute Tidy Home by Sara Hunter is a handy little book for those who aren't organized and for those who are. The informative book is broken down into chapters by areas of the home. There is a chapter for your kitchen, living room, bathrooms, bedrooms etc. There is a section for overnight guests, throwing a party, moving and how to deal with clutter in your home office.
I am extremely organized and this book had information even I hadn't even thought of. Great book and full of helpful informat

This is a helpful little book. Sara L. Hunter breaks things down into manageable pieces that you feel like you can actually do! The book is categorized by rooms and events (thanks for the tips on parties) o help you easily find ways to help whatever area is causing you the most issues.
The only negative is I don't like the art; it's the same generic and garish looking clip art style that runs through the 10-Minute line, But I wouldn't let that detract you from the tips inside!

10 Minute Tidy Home by Sara L Hunter is a super wee book. It is well written and has numerous sections with each room and the chores to do to make them tidier. They are all quick and relatively easy to do so definately 10 minute chores.

An enjoyable book that was also quick to read. You could just quickly browse though it and get started on the tidy. Now off to put the great ideas into action.

Thanks to Netgalley and Quatro Publishing for the ARC Copy of this book. My review is my own

I'm not tidy, my mother in particular will attest to that. The idea of being able to tidy in ten minutes seemed like a good one. I like the book in general, the tips are short and organised by room so you could use it to tackle problem areas.

The problem I had was that I didn't learn anything very new. Perhaps that says more about me than the book though, I know all this stuff but don't do it.

I think that this would have been ideal when I moved into my first home.

A big thank you to NetGalley and Quarto Publishing Group for the ARC. I am voluntarily reviewing this book. This book is organized well, and the concepts are straightforward. Pretty common sense ideas but if you need tips these are practical ones. Some are maybe a bit outdated like stacking pans. With today's coated pans this is probably not the best option. It did give me some ideas which were helpful. I rate this a 3.

This is much more than just doing chores but doing them more efficiently. Good organizing tips, some of which will be put to good use the rest of your life. Only caveat for me is the mention of using AAA to print up route, etc. Since most people have cell phones, they can use an app for directions or some device like a Garmin. These devices are easier for the driver to use than a sheet of paper.
I received an advanced reader copy from NetGalley in exchange for my volunteer review.

Loved the book.
The ideas for easy tips to straighten and clean every room of the house was amazing.
Just wish that I would have been able to read this as an kindle arc. The other apps are not very reliable.

Note: I received a free e-copy of the book via Net Galley in exchange for an honest review. Special thanks to the author and publisher for giving me a chance to read it.

This book is beautifully designed. It has sort of an Art Deco-meets-clean modern style and color palette. I really loved looking through it. The content also is helpful. Most pieces of advice were pretty common-sense, but it is nice to have them all collected in one place. This would make a nice gift for a young person moving out on their own for the first time.

A breath of fresh air after the last "10 minute house organisation" book I recently read! So many tips! So practical and useful! Gave me quite a few ideas I'll be putting into practice over coming weeks/months/years.

I liked how it is organised and I will surely follow some of the hints.

Really great tips and a brief explanation of the tip. Take what you need, and leave what you don't need. A great addition to the two other books I have read like this. Nice quick tips that the reader could use at any time in a short amount of time.

This was a neat, well-organized book on how to clean and organize your home or workplace. This book is broken up by sections and has many little bite-size tasks you can work on. I liked this book. I found it practical, helpful, and nicely organized. I would recommend to people interested in cleaning, organizing, and decluttering.

Thank you NetGalley for my complimentary copy in return for my honest opinion.
