GON Organizing Checklist
Monthly Organizing Checklist September, 2020 Our NEW September 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 __ Sep 1 Today marks the first day of National Self Improvement Month. Jot down three things you’d like to improve, ranging from your health and well-being, to your education, to your schedule…whatever it is you feel needs attention. Then, do something today…even a tiny change…that is focused on one of those goals. __ Sep 2 Set up a homework or project station. If you have kids/grandkids in school, they may be back in school, or learning virtually right now. Be sure there is a dedicated place in your home for them to work on schoolwork and homework. No kids in the house? That’s OK because adults need a quiet space to work on projects as well. Clear an area, make it look inviting, and retreat here when you need to work on a project. __ Sep 3 Work on getting some of the more special photos on from your cell phone uploaded for safekeeping…to your computer, The Cloud, or whatever photo storage service you use. __ Sep 4 Empty out your spice rack or spice drawer and clean it out well. Discard any spices that are no longer good or that you never use. Organize the ones you do use back onto your rack or into the drawer, organized alphabetically. If you use store-bought jars, I highly recommend you use all one brand. This way, the size and look of each container is the same, which results in a more organized spice system for appearance and for cooking needs. __ Sep 5 Consider hosting an in-person or online rummage sale and say goodbye to things in your home that you’re no longer using. Donate whatever doesn’t sell.  __ Sep 6 Have you noticed some tree limbs coming close to your roof? September is a good time for trimming. Call a professional to do this for you if needed. This TO DO may help prevent winter storm damage to your home. .__ Sep 7 Labor Day (US). Today is a celebration of workers who have and continue to contribute to the strength, prosperity and well-being of our country. Thank somebody today for their hard work and dedication…an electrician, a florist, a teacher, a sanitation company worker, a postal carrier, a health care worker, etc. __ Sep 8 If applicable, order firewood for your fireplace or your fire pit. Life is so much more enjoyable when you have what you need at the moment you need it, without having to run out to the store. __ Sep 9 It’s a good time to check your fire extinguisher and replace it or have it serviced if needed. __ Sep 10 Get rid of something you have in duplicate, but really don’t need in duplicate. __ Sep 11 9/11 Remembrance Day. September 11th marks the 19th year since the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and United Flight 93 that crashed in western Pennsylvania. Fly your flag at half staff, post an appropriate photo or quote of remembrance on social media, attend a 9/11 service, and/or resolve to do something today to help promote peace and unity. __ Sep 12 Remove all contents from one kitchen cabinet and clean that cabinet well. You may be surprised at how dusty it is inside. Then return the contents, being sure to first weed out anything you no longer need. __ Sep 13 Grandparents Day. Do something nice for a grandparent, or in remembrance of a grandparent who is no longer here. __ Sep 14 Are you stocked up on hand sanitizer, disinfectant, toilet paper, paper towels, and anything else that ran out last fall? A little bit of preparation now can save a lot of headaches later as you scramble store to store in search of what you may need. __ Sep 15 Begin your fall garden clean-up. Do some weeding. Trim some plants back. Remove any annuals that are no longer looking good or are well gone. __ Sep 16 The presidential election in the United States is on Tuesday, November 3rd. Are you registered to vote? If not, get an early start and register today. __ Sep 17 Do your fall window cleaning today…or on the next cloudy day (it’s better to do this job on an overcast day) during which rain is NOT in the forecast. If you have a lot of windows, divide the job up into a room a day, or a few windows a day, until it’s done. __ Sep 18 Rosh Hashanah. This day celebrates the Jewish new year. During Rosh Hashanah, Jewish people ask forgiveness. Whether you’re Jewish or not, asking forgiveness for something we’ve done wrong is something that can help remove heavy weight from our shoulders, and the shoulders of others. __ Sep 19 Scrub your shower walls and/or glass shower doors to remove soap scum, dirt, etc. I know…this is not exactly a fun job, but if this has been neglected, take the time to get it done. __ Sep 20 Stock up on any items you need for cold and flu season, which can begin as early as October. And remember to stay home from work (and have your kids stay home from school) if any cold or flu symptoms arise. This is good practice all the time, but especially now during the global pandemic. __ Sep 21 International Peace Day. No matter how crazy things are in the world, we can all find and celebrate peace and cohesiveness. What can you do today to promote more peace and kindness in the world? __ Sep 22 First Day of Fall. Begin swapping out spring/summer window and bed coverings for your fall ones. __ Sep 23 As the weather begins to cool, start rotating your spring/summer wardrobe into storage (or towards the back of your closet) and get your fall/winter wardrobe ready and organized for the season. __ Sep 24 Make a concerted effort to clean up your email inbox and/or email folders you have set up. Delete, delete, delete, delete… __ Sep 25 Organize the garage. If the thought of that is daunting, set aside 30 minutes a day and get it done a little bit at a time. My husband and I always focus on one corner or area at a time, call it a day when that area is done, and then continue the following day or week. __ Sep 26 Organize your clothes closet. Sort like-items together. If this is too big a job to do at once, do it in 15-minute increments, each day, until it’s done. Set a timer so there is a definite defined start and end time. __ Sep 27 If you are living in a cold-weather state and are done mowing for the season, get your mower ready for fall and winter storage. Empty the gas tank or run it off outside until it’s empty. Give it a good cleaning. __ Sep 28 National Good Neighbor Day. What can you do to help a neighbor, or brighten his or her day? Perhaps help out with some gardening or shopping TO DOs…maybe delivery some beautiful fall flowers or a gift card for a take-out meal? __ Sep 29 It’s a good time to begin taking inventory of your winter outerwear…boots, gloves, scarves, hats, earmuffs, coats/jackets, and snow pants. __ Sep 30 If you live in a cold-weather state, begin covering and/or storing your lawn furniture for the season. Clean it first.
