It’s the 1st of March and it’s time for another Jump Start month – one simple task every day to improve your personal finances and life in general. This one’s called the March Spring Clean. Let’s get started!
As usual there’s a different theme each week, and this time around it looks like this:
- Week 1: 1st – 7th March: Declutter and clean
- Week 2: 8th – 14th March: Personal finance week
- Week 3: 15th – 21 March: Tenner Week (live on a budget of £10)
- Week 4: 22nd – 29th March: Look and feel better
The same as in previous Jump Start months, you can miss a task or two here and there and catch up at the weekend instead. You can join in for the whole thing, or just for one of the specific weeks – I know quite a few people will be joining in with Tenner Week this time, so good luck to everyone.
Today’s task: First steps
When you arrive home, make the first couple of steps feel fresher and brighter. Tidy up the space around the door, wipe surfaces with a damp cloth, and vacuum the floor or shake out the doormat.
I did this earlier and it took five minutes, but it made the hallway feel a whole lot more welcoming so it was five minutes well spent. A nice easy way to start the Declutter and clean week.
