Organizing Challenges Challenge Yourself to Get Organized a Little Bit Each Day Challenge yourself to get organized a little bit each day…and it will make a big difference in your life. Here are 5 mini challenges for this week… 1. Clean your garbage disposal: Three of my kitchen pet peeves are smelly 1) refrigerators, 2) garbage containers, and 3) garbage disposals. If your garbage disposal is stinky, try this unique trick. First, make vinegar ice cubes. Then grind up the vinegar cubes in your garbage disposal. Grinding the vinegar cubes will clean the cutting blades. Want to add a fresh scent? Include citrus peels with the vinegar cubes. The rinds of oranges, grapefruits, lemons, and limes work great! 2. Create a homework center: Create a specific area where your children can do their homework without distractions and that is stocked with pens, pencils and other necessary supplies. It’s better to have a consistent place, rather than homework being done here, there and everywhere. My daughter uses the breakfast counter. I have a specific kitchen drawer that I’ve emptied out for her in which I keep everything she needs to get her homework accomplished. 3. Spot clean floors: Spot clean or Swiffer your kitchen and bathroom floors. While there isn’t always enough time to deep clean floors, a quick once-over will help keep your floors looking nice. 4. Clean the fridge surface: Remove any magnets or papers that are displayed on the front or top of the refrigerator. Clean with a clean cloth and a mild liquid detergent. Always wipe in the direction of the grain. Limit the amount of papers you display on the refrigerator. I usually stick to one piece of my daughter’s artwork, emergency phone numbers, medical information, and the school’s weekly lunch menu. 5. Update your cosmetics: Go through your old cosmetics and get rid of anything you never use, either because you don’t like it or it’s too old. Buy yourself a new eye shadow or lipstick as a reward for weeding out the old...a fun color that will lead you into the new season in style.
