GON Organizing Checklist
Monthly Organizing Checklist August, 2019 Make this last full month of summer 2019 your most organized yet. Start today with our NEW August Organizing Checklist. Join our newsletter to be notified when the newest checklist is available. For a PRINTABLE VERSION, click here ____ Aug 1 Corral remotes. Grab a pretty basket and store all remotes there from now on. ____ Aug 2 Recycle junk mail. Piles of mail lying around can really add to your home’s paper clutter. Take a few minutes to recycle any mass mailings or other junk that may have found its way in. ____ Aug 3 Clean make-up brushes. Wash all of your make-up brushes that haven’t been cleaned in a while and replace any that may need to be.. ____ Aug 4 Buy some drawer organizers. Having the inside of a drawer sectioned off really does help to keep the drawer’s contents more organized. Purchase some drawer organizers and use them wherever you see fit. ____ Aug 5 Match up your socks. There is no sense in hanging onto socks that don’t have a mate. Go through and match all of your socks up and pitch any that are going solo..  ____ Aug 6 Clean shower heads. Because of hard water deposits, shower heads can start to get clogged up with minerals. Grab a gallon bag, fill the bottom with vinegar, and rubberband it around your shower head overnight. The vinegar will help to clean and remove the hard water deposits, helping the water to flow through more easily. .____ Aug 7 Keep sheet sets together by storing the flat, fitted, and pillowcase together inside one of the other pillowcases. The sheets store nicely this way and it will prevent you from having to rummage through your linen closet to find all of the matching pieces later on. ____ Aug 8 Dust the TV screen. Televisions are famous for collecting dust like a magnet. Grab some screen cleaner and give the screen a good wipe down. ____ Aug 9 Schedule important appointments. As we near back-to-school, a lot of folks will be scheduling doctor, dentist, and vision appointments. Get a jump on any appointments that you or a member of your family may need to have scheduled before all appointment times get taken. ____ Aug 10 Begin school shopping. Regardless or not of whether you have kids in school, now is the time to stock up on school supplies. Pens, pencils, notebooks and anything else you may need at school or at home will be less expensive this month than any other. Stock up now. ____ Aug 11 Clean out your purse. Dump the contents of your purse and weed out anything that doesn’t really need to be in there. Toss any trash and only put back the things you will have a use for. ____ Aug 12 Do a closet check. Summer is winding down. Look through your closet and get rid of any summer clothes that you didn’t wear this year. ____ Aug 13 Clean your ceiling fans. Use an old pillowcase to clean ceiling fan blades. Wrap the piillow case around the blade and it will catch any dust bunnies that would otherwise hit the floor. ____ Aug 14 Freshen the garbage disposal. Put a couple of lemon rinds in your garbage disposal and turn on. Follow with a rinse of cold water to leave a fresh, clean smell. ____ Aug 15 National Relaxation Day. Whatever that means for you, use today as an excuse to do it. ____ Aug 16 Freshen up the furniture. Grab some fabric spray and mist all of the furniture. This will make the cushions, as well as the whole room, smell cleaner. ____ Aug 17 National Thrift Shop Day. Take anything you no longer have a use for and donate to a thrift shop. While you are there, pick up something for yourself that you CAN use. ____ Aug 18 Shake out the rugs. Pick up any small rugs in your home, take them outside, and give them a good shake. ____ Aug 19 Wash the rear view and side mirrors of your car. Grab some glass cleaner and clean all of the mirrors on and in your car. ____ Aug 20 Make a change. Trade in any plastic straws for reusable, aluminum ones. ____ Aug 21 Tend to the oven drawer. Empty out and vacuum the drawer on your oven. Burnt up pieces of food tend to accumulate here. ____ Aug 22 National Be an Angel Day. Take this day to do something nice for someone else. It doesn’t even have to be somebody you know. ____ Aug 23 Be healthier. Give up one sugary or otherwise non healthy drink today and substitute it with plain water. ____ Aug 24 Check the freezer. Look through the freezer for any food items that may be freezer burned or that have simply been on ice too long and need to be purged. ____ Aug 25 Be proactive. Purchase some disinfectant wipes and store them under your bathroom sink. They will then be easily accessible any time the sink needs to be wiped up. ____ Aug 26 Take a break. Take a night away from all electronic devices and enjoy the company of those around you instead. ____ Aug 27 Clean the microwave. Put a bowl of water in the microwave and let the steam do all of the work for you. Simply set the timer for five minutes and the baked on food will easily wipe away. ____ Aug 28 Be energy conscious. Many electronics continue to suck energy when they are left plugged in, even if the power is not turned on. Walk around and unplug anything that is not being used to help save money on your energy bill. ____ Aug 29 Reconnect with friends. Call up a friend you haven’t seen in a while and make plans to get together this weekend or whenever you are both available. ____ Aug 30 Eliminate clutter. Go through one room and pick up EVERYTHING that is out of place. This could be clothing, books, or items left on a coffee table or night stand. Return everything to its proper place. ____ Aug 31 Treat yourself. A month’s worth of little tasks deserves to be rewarded. Treat yourself to an ice cream, coffee, or anything else that you enjoy eating. You deserve it.
