Have fun decorating for the season. __ Oct 3 Clean the inside windows in all the rooms. Vacuum the window tracks and use an old toothbrush to loosen any stubborn dirt. __ Oct 4 Wash your kitchen cabinets. Mix a bucket of hot water with a few drops of lemon essential oil or your favorite cleaner. Then wipe down the cabinets and doors. Rinse with clean water, dry, and enjoy your clean cabinets. __ Oct 5 Clean the inside of a few kitchen cabinets. Wipe down the shelves, replace the liners, and reorganize the contents. Donate items which are no longer used. __ Oct 6 Today is Mad Hatter Day. Clean and organize your hats, winter scarves, and other outer wear. __ Oct 7 Go out on a date with your spouse, child, or friend. Let them pick the activity. __ Oct 8 Gather the family and write a letter to grandparents or other family who live far away. __ Oct 9 Fire Prevention Day. Check and change the batteries in your smoke detectors. Also, check your fire extinguishers. Have them serviced if needed. __ Oct 10 Change any light bulbs that have burned out. __ Oct 11 Help your children go through their stuffed animals and take some to the local police or fire station. The police and firemen can keep them on hand to give to children in a crisis. __ Oct 12 Scrub the grout from your tile showers. Re-grout if necessary and seal the grout to cut down on cleaning the next time. __ Oct 13 Build a tent in the family room and start watching some fun Halloween movies. __ Oct 14 Rake up leaves. Have the family help, and remember to take pictures of the “jumping into the leaf piles.” __ Oct 15 Make some pumpkin cookies and share with some neighbors. __ Oct 16 Rotate the mattresses on all the beds. Remember to turn them over if needed. Get help if needed, so you don’t throw out your back. Dust the bed frame too. __ Oct 17 Drain hoses, store them in the garage or shed, have someone come and blow out the sprinkler system, and then shut off the water to the sprinkler system. __ Oct 18 Wipe down the patio furniture and put it all into storage. __ Oct 19 Stock up on furnace filters for the coming winter. Be sure and buy the correct size. This will make it easier to change the filters during the winter. __ Oct 20 Take the kids shopping for their Halloween costumes, or better yet, search through your closet and let them create their one-of-a-kind costume. __ Oct 21 Remove your shower heads and soak them in vinegar to eliminate the hard water deposits. Your family will thank you for a nicer shower. __ Oct 22 Start a holiday gift list. Write down those you give to, and ideas for gifts. This may seem early, but some gifts take longer to create, and you will be ahead of the gift giving game. __ Oct 23 Plan and practice some safety drills. Make sure everyone knows what to do, where to meet, and who they are responsible for. Check smoke detectors and replace the batteries. __ Oct 24 Organize your linen closet. Fold sheets and place the set into the matching pillow case. Organize according to bed size. __ Oct 25 Vacuum the mattresses and make the beds with the cozy winter bedding. Flannel sheets and extra blankets will protect your family during the chilly fall and winter nights. __ Oct 26 Choose a room and wash the walls, baseboards, and doors. __ Oct 27 Check your treat stash, and stock up on more candy if needed for treat or trick. __ Oct 28 Make up next month's meal plans. Stock up on needed ingredients. __ Oct 29 Bring the family journal or personal journals up to date. It’s a good time to help your kids start writing their personal history, by talking with them about their birth and childhood, and sharing your stories. __ Oct 30 Take a family walk and enjoy the cool autumn weather. __ Oct 31 Happy Halloween. Be sure and turn on your porch light if you are handing out treats! Visit Our Get Organized Now! Store to See All of Our GON Products
