by Maria Gracia Our NEW August Organizing Checklist provides an organizing TO DO for every day of the month… Join our newsletter to be notified when the newest Monthly Organizing Checklist is available. For a PRINTABLE VERSION, click here ____ Aug 1 National Simplify Your Life Week. This entire first week of August is dedicated to eliminating any physical, digital, paper, or psychological clutter in your life, and focuses on simplicity and your basic needs. Simplify whatever you can this week…your possessions, cleaning routine, calendar, obligations, etc. ____ Aug 2 Begin getting ready for the back-to-school season. Shop for school supplies and back-to-school clothes. Fill out any necessary forms and pay any needed school fees. Be sure to establish a specific study and homework area. Get any known school event dates into your calendar. ____ Aug 3 What outdoor projects have you been procrastinating on? This month is a good one to get them started…and completed. ____ Aug 4 Clean out and organize one kitchen cabinet. ____ Aug 5 Sort through your desk drawer at home and/or at work. Get rid of anything you don’t need. Use a drawer organizer to sort the rest.  ____ Aug 6 Donate a pair of shoes in your closet that are noticeably dusty. Chances are, if they’re dusty, you never wear them. .____ Aug 7 National Eye Exam Month. Keep your eyes healthy and be sure any issues are detected early. If it has been awhile since your last eye doctor appointment, make one today. ____ Aug 8 Delete 10 computer files you never use. ____ Aug 9 Delete a phone app you haven’t used in the past three months. ____ Aug 10 Empty your freezer and clean it out. Get rid of anything you can’t identify, has freezer-burn, or that you and your family don’t plan to eat. ____ Aug 11 Weed out and organize a pantry shelf…or two. ____ Aug 12 Do you have a surplus of bed linens? Donate them to a thrift store or animal shelter. ____ Aug 13 Pick through your cosmetics and get rid of anything expired or that you’ll never use. ____ Aug 14 Begin updating your wardrobe a little bit at a time. Donate clothes you never wear and shop for items you absolutely will wear. ____ Aug 15 Relaxation Day. Yes, it’s exactly how it sounds…a day to rest, relax, and rejuvenate! ____ Aug 16 Drag your empty trash receptacles onto your driveway the day after trash pick-up. Add a few drops of Dawn dish soap, scrub as necessary, and rinse with your garden hose. ____ Aug 17 Using a soft, lint-free cloth, clean the screens of your devices. ____ Aug 18 Choose a room in your home, and wash all of the windows in that room…inside and out. ____ Aug 19 Clean birdhouses and birdbaths. ____ Aug 20 Make a new and healthy recipe using only vegetables, beans, nuts, and/or whole grains. ____ Aug 21 Wipe down outdoor tables and furniture, especially those with bird droppings. ____ Aug 22 Wash your vehicle or bring it to the car wash. ____ Aug 23 Vacuum out the interior of your vehicle. Toss out any trash. ____ Aug 24 Organize the coffee table (or an end table). Remove all clutter. Dust it off or shine the glass if applicable. ____ Aug 25 Thoroughly clean your kitchen floor. ____ Aug 26 Weed out papers from 10 file folders in your filing cabinet. Recycle them. ____ Aug 27 Organize instruction manuals for products you still have. Consider going digital for any that have this option available. Get rid of user manuals for anything you no longer own. ____ Aug 28 Do you need to renew your passport? It’s a good time to get that done. In the United States, new passports can take up to 12 weeks to arrive after you apply. In addition, you may need to update your birth certificate if it doesn’t meet the necessary passport criteria (like having your parents’ names on your birth certificate, which many older ones do not.) Obtaining a certified birth certificate can take up to 12 weeks too. If you need both, that’s up to 12 weeks to get your birth certificate and up to another 12 weeks to get your passport. Don’t procrastinate. ____ Aug 29 Organize the area under your kitchen sink. Weed out cleaning products you no longer use. ____ Aug 30 Toasted Marshmallow Day. We’re nearing the end of summer. Let’s celebrate it while it’s still here. Making S’mores, and enjoying them with friends and family, is a great way to do so. ____ Aug 31 What are your goals for September? Today is a great day to jot them down and get started on one! Back to Monthly Organizing Checklists Index
