    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?"

    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.

In this aspect, I do think the book needs a better title that encompasses more of what the book covers.

    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.

I have a tiny, cluttered home that I try to clean up in small doses every day so I do not get overwhelmed 0 this book is going to be a godsend. (I already had a cupboard set aside for my husband as he can never find anything - sigh). The book is logical and smart and works well for over-whelmed people like me: in small doses, almost anything can be possible when it comes to cleaning and tidying. As always, I try to find a reason to not rate with stars as I love emojis (outside of their incessant use by "Social Influencer Millennials" on Instagram and Twitter) so let's give it 🧹🧹🧹🧹🧹

    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. #10minutetidyhome #Netgalley

    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 I don't consider myself a tidy person, yet I'm already doing a lot of the things suggested here.

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 in the book in regard to staying organized when throwing a party, having house guests, and traveling. It also includes guidance for wrangling kids' clutter, which doesn't pertain to me. Overall, this is a very simple, straight forward guide to organizing your home and other aspects of life. Most of the content was stuff I've encountered elsewhere over the years, although I will say this addresses many aspects in one place, which is nice. This would be a great book to gift a high school graduate, or someone moving into their own place for the first time. If you're not new to the world of decluttering and organizational methods, you might not find anything here groundbreaking. Many thanks to NetGalley for my digital copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

This re-format and re-release by Quarto on their Fair Winds Press imprint came out 17th Sept 2019, is 208 pages and is available in ebook and hardcover formats. This is a very basic book aimed at encouraging and supporting readers in getting their living environments more tidy and organized. The format is simple, logical, and easy to follow. The first chapter deals specifically with the home environs, room by room. The next two sections cover entertaining, and tidiness when traveling. There is also a short index. The content is -very- basic and common sense. It's presented buffet-style, with a pick-and-mix variety of short tips such as 'stack bowls to save space' and 'take juice boxes out of the plastic wrap so they're easily accessible' and 'store important documents and papers in a safe place'. I could see this being a useful guide tucked into a basket of house-warming items for a newly moved out youngster on their own for the first time, possibly. There are some high-contrast simplified graphics and illustrations, but no photography. The streamlined graphics sort of coordinate with the bullet point lists of tips for organizing. There wasn't much here which will be groundbreaking for the majority of readers. It is short and easy to read and the author's style is friendly, conversational, and upbeat. Three stars.

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 something that everyone would use or need, but there is a lot in here that gives food for thought about how to have a more organized home. Despite what the author promises, not every tip would take only 10 minutes to accomplish. Some would take only minutes, while others could take hours depending on your current level of disorganization. In the introduction, the author does suggest that whatever task you attempt, to only do it in small 10-minute doses so that way you don't give up, overwhelmed by the task or the greater sense of all that you need to accomplish. The book is split into three parts. Part 1 is what I talked about above, where she gives tips for each room in the home, including the garage. She takes her organizational skills beyond stuff in the house for parts two and three. In part 2, she gives tips for having stress-free holidays, house guests, and parties. In part 3, she discusses travel and moving. I did find the book helpful, and I believe I will be implementing some of her ideas. I received a free copy of this book, but that did not affect my review. Read my other reviews at https://www.readingfanaticreviews.com

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: Household Entertaining Moving and vacations The household section is the one I have found most useful and is divided up into rooms, including laundry, garage and home office, plus storage solutions. Within each room or section are well arranged individual tips to help you get to grips with sorting out the individual areas of each of your rooms. I really like the way this book is set out, it has a very clean, crisp design, with well written, easy to understand tips presented in perfect 10 minute bite sized portions in a very easy to navigate format. Although I doubt I will move house again anytime soon, I wish I had had this book to hand years ago when I moved home 5 times in 2 years. The vacation planning section would also prove invaluable. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone wanting to get to grips with their clutter and create a more orderly, pleasant to live in home, or move home and plan vacations with their sanity intact! This book is published on 17 September. I received an eArc from the publisher via Netgalley, but this review is entirely unbiased and the words are my own.

I am perplexed that anybody doesn't know these tips. OTOH, the section on party planning was definitely not me. Send invitations 6 weeks in advance, fill the house with seasonal plants, set the table the day before, and so on. I hope to never have the kind of party where I have to follow that section's advice. This might be great for folks who really don't know how to do basic organizing. I didn't end up getting much out of it. I read a temporary digital ARC for the purpose of review.

    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.

    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 10 Minute Tidy Home by Sara L Hunter is a super wee book.

    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.

    Nicky Hallam

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

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