Weekend projects for a shorter to-do list

by Leona Russell 05/01/2022

Instead of feeling overwhelmed by a lengthy to-do list, try breaking it into manageable weekend projects for your home. It’s easy to put off some tasks because they seem difficult, but many are simpler and quicker to accomplish than you might expect. Here are some examples of weekend projects to mark off your to-do list this weekend:

Deep clean the bathroom

Don’t let the term “deep cleaning” intimidate you. When it comes to cleaning a single room like a bathroom, even a thoroughly deep clean can be accomplished in a weekend. One key to efficient cleaning is having the right products and tools for the job. Have sponges, disinfectant wipes, glass cleaner and a good toilet brush.

Clear out the fridge

How long has it been since you cleared out the leftovers from the deepest corners of your refrigerator? An excellent weekend project to cross off your list is to take everything out of the fridge and give it a good cleaning. You’ll be able to toss any expired foods and make room for new items. You’ll also gain more perspective on what you have in stock, helping you avoid food waste in the process.

Purge your closet

Another to-do list item that can be easy to put off is clearing out and organizing your closet. Whether it’s your personal bedroom closet, a hallway closet or another type of storage, consider dedicating a weekend to giving it a fresh start. For clothing and accessories, sort items into separate categories to keep, throw away and donate. Before you know it, you’ll have a fresh-feeling space with room to spare.

No matter what you have on your to-do list, it can be beneficial to focus on individual tasks. By breaking your list into manageable pieces, you’ll be able to accomplish these and many other weekend projects with ease.
