Monthly Organizing Checklists

October, 2020 Our NEW October Organizing Checklist provides an organizing TO DO for every day of the month… Join our newsletter to be notified when the newest checklist is available. For a PRINTABLE VERSION, click here __ Oct 1 Decorate for fall and/or Halloween. To keep it fun and prevent a whole lot of work, keep décor simple and low-key. __ Oct 2 Begin planning for Christmas. It will be here sooner than you know it. The Get Organized Now! Holiday Planner can help you get and stay organized in the process. __ Oct 3 Clean-out and tidy under the kitchen sink. __ Oct 4 Clean out rain gutters and down spouts or have a professional do this for you. This is necessary to prevent water damage to your home, and especially if you have a good number of big trees that released leaves this fall. __ Oct 5 World Teachers Day. Give a great teacher (or two or three) some heartfelt recognition with a card and/or a small gift. __ Oct 6 Go through cloth table coverings, cloth napkins, and napkin rings. Are there any you no longer want? If so, donate or trash them as applicable. Designate one area for them and fold/store them nicely. __ Oct 7 Replace any light bulbs, inside or out, that require changing. __ Oct 8 Make or bake a recipe that includes apples. __ Oct 9 Fire Prevention Day. Review your fire escape plan, or make one if you don’t have one. Meet with your family to review the plan…and host a few practice drills. __ Oct 10 Write a thank you card to someone who gave you a gift…or simply to someone who you appreciate. __ Oct 11 Weed out any junk that has made its way into your purse or briefcase. __ Oct 12 Clean your fireplace or have a professional do this for you. Keeping it clean helps prevent home fires as well as potential carbon monoxide poisoning. __ Oct 13 Donate three books that you don’t plan to read again. __ Oct 14 Make a list of Halloween movies you want to see. Get them on your Netflix “watch list” or unearth some DVDs you may have stowed away. Also, have you purchased your Halloween pumpkin yet? __ Oct 15 Find out if trick-or-treating is going to be done in your neighborhood this year. If it is, pick up pre-wrapped treats, and plan for safely handing them out. It may be better for you to sanitize your hands and hand the treats out, rather than leaving them in a bowl at your door for many hands to grab. Consider a stash of peanut-free treats as well. __ Oct 16 Are you stocked up on postage? If not, pay a visit to your post office or order stamps online. __ Oct 17 Put your gardening hose away for the season, as well as your outdoor sprinkling system if applicable. __ Oct 18 Organize a dresser drawer, a closet shelf, and/or a kitchen cabinet. __ Oct 19 Evaluate Your Life Day. Make a list of things in your life that you want to improve. Circle one of those when you’re done, and focus on that…starting today. __ Oct 20 Delete 100 or more email messages from your email inbox. __ Oct 21 Weed out 5 file folders in your filing cabinet, or tackle one pile of paper. __ Oct 22 Pull out an old cookbook, tag five recipes, and plan to make each of them…one per week. __ Oct 23 Get each family member to collect 10 items for donation. Go together to your favorite charity to drop them off. Then do something fun together as a family. __ Oct 24 If you plan to vote for the presidential election in person, find out where your local polling place is and set a time in your planner to vote on November 3rd. Be sure you know and follow any pandemic safety policies in place. __ Oct 25 Mother-in-Law Day. This is the perfect day to make a special mom-in-law feel great. Call, send a card, drop off a treat…anything to make her feel loved. __ Oct 26 Prepare your lawn for a long winter’s nap by aerating, seeding, and/or fertilizing. __ Oct 27 Rake leaves and prep them at the curbside (or however your town requires) for leaf pick-up, or drop them off at a leaf drop-off site __ Oct 28 Are you done mowing for the season? Safely clean your lawn mower and drain the gas. __ Oct 29 Open the windows and deep clean your oven. __ Oct 30 If you live in a cold-weather area, clean and cover outdoor grills for the season. __ Oct 31 Happy Halloween. Have a wonderful, not-so-scary, safe Halloween in whatever way you choose to celebrate.
