Monthly Organizing Checklist October, 2018 Wouldn’t it be great if your life was beautifully organized? It can be! Our NEW October 2018 Organizing Checklist is ready and willing to help you on your journey! Join our weekly newsletter to be notified when the newest checklist is available. For a PRINTABLE VERSION, click here __ Oct 1 Wipe down all the cabinet doors in the kitchen. This is an area that gets handled constantly and is often neglected. __ Oct 2 Pull out some fall-scented candles. Candles create a warm glow in your home and make the rooms smell inviting. __ Oct 3 Clean off all of the handrails in your home. With cold and flu season approaching, it is wise to keep the areas that get touched the most consistently wiped down. __ Oct 4 Purchase some Halloween greeting cards and pick a few friends you can send them to. Getting something fun in the mail always beats getting something that states “please remit this amount.” __ Oct 5 Check your yard for any lawn ornaments or décor, that you don’t want exposed to the elements all winter long, and bring them inside. __ Oct 6 Start searching for new soup recipes to prepare in a slow cooker. Having a hot meal waiting for you at the end of a long day is one of the finer things in life, especially when the temperatures outside are starting to drop. __ Oct 7 Inventory your medicine cabinet and make sure you have enough cold and flu type medicines and pain relievers Nothing is worse than having to run to the store when you suddenly start feeling under the weather. __ Oct 8 Give your home a splash of fall by introducing fall themed hand towels and other accessories. Stores are filled with these items now so it is easy to find whatever you like. __ Oct 9 Check the inside of your vehicle and make sure you have an ice scraper and snow brush on board. Although it may seem a bit early for this, it is always better to be prepared. __ Oct 10 Check to make sure everyone in your home has a good pair of winter boots. Retailers stock winter items early and they may be hard to find If you wait too long in the season. __ Oct 11 Grab the vacuum and clean up the crumbs that always seem to end up in your kitchen drawers. __ Oct 12 Pack away any clothes that you only wear in the summer. But first, donate anything that you went the entire summer without wearing. __ Oct 13 Jump in the car and visit a local pumpkin patch. The fall season is short and it is always fun to hunt for the perfect pumpkin. __ Oct 14 Go into your yard and cut back any perennials that need to be tended to. This will make things so much easier for you in the spring. __ Oct 15 Make your home and yard Halloween-ready by putting up any spooky decorations that you may have. Orange and purple string lights also help create a fun outside Halloween look. __ Oct 16 Buy a fresh box of baking soda to store inside your fridge. Dump an old box down the garbage disposal. Baking soda really does help to keep odors away. __ Oct 17 Go through the fridge and discard any outdated condiments. Replenish the ones you use on a regular basis. __ Oct 18 Buy some plants to keep indoors during the winter. Many plants are natural air purifiers which are helpful in the winter months when your home is sealed up tight. __ Oct 19 Sweep out the inside of your garage to help keep from tracking dirt inside your home. __ Oct 20 Wipe down all door knobs in the house with a disinfecting wipe. Make this a part of your weekly routine. __ Oct 21 Make sure you have enough tissues in the house before the sniffles make their way in. __ Oct 22 Go to the store and purchase treats for the trick-or- treaters that will be coming your way. __ Oct 23 Clean out one drawer, anywhere in your home, and eliminate any items in it that you are not using. __ Oct 24 Grab some glass cleaner and clean any and all mirrors in the house, especially those in the bathrooms where water tends to splash up. __ Oct 25 Vacuum out the interior of your car and toss any trash that may have accumulated. Wipe down the steering wheel and dash as well. Consider adding an air freshener to keep the interior smelling nice. __ Oct 26 Look through your phone contacts and delete any numbers that you no longer need or use. __ Oct 27 Vacuum up the dust bunnies living under your bed and night stands. __ Oct 28 Make sure all of your heavy jackets are clean and ready to go. Temperatures can change quickly this time of year and it is good to be prepared for sudden temperature drops. __ Oct 29 Wipe off all computer keyboards, screens, and TV remotes in the house with wipes designed for that purpose. __ Oct 30 Go through the freezer and discard anything that looks freezer-burned or that you know has been in there too long. Make a point to buy only what you are going to use in the near future. __ Oct 31 Happy Halloween! Enjoy the holiday with trick or treating, scary movies, or Halloween parties.
