P&G everyday has a downloadable 1 day, 1 task

Organizing your home can be an overwhelming task. Sometimes it’s difficult to know where to start. Follow this easy 30-day plan for a de-cluttered and organized home.

For each day, sort the items in your space into three piles labeled “Toss,” “Donate” and “Keep.” Be ruthless. The goal is to eliminate any unnecessary clutter first. You can then look at how you want to sort and organize the remaining items. www.pgeveryday.com/article/easy-home

What to Store in the Bathroom... And What Not to Store in the Bathroom
What to Store in the Bathroom

___ Toiletries. Keep toothpaste, toothbrush, mouthwash, facial moisturizer - both day and night, face wash, eye cream, contact, contact solution, etc.--store these as close to the sink as possible, and store extra supplies under the sink if you have room.

___ Towels. Hand towels, face cloths, bath towels. I store face cloths and hand towels in a drawer to keep them close at hand and so they don't topple over. I store bath towels in my linen closet which is right outside the bathroom.

Either way, keep towels close at hand. If you have guests coming over, consider moving them to a more prominent spot so you don't have to answer the question, "where are the towels?"

___ Shower supplies like razors, shaving cream, body wash, bar soap, shampoo, conditioner, and anything else you use in the shower or tub, store in the shower or tub. I like to use a tall shower caddy since they use vertical space so well.

___ Hair dryer, etc. Your hair dryer, flat iron, and curling iron are traditionally stored in the bathroom with hair styling products. If you can hang them, they will be easier to reach, but many people don't want to actually see their hair styling tools out in the open all the time. I keep mine in a drawer. Many people hang them on the inside of the cabinet door under the sink. Whatever you do, make sure to separate them out so you are not hunting for them among toiletries. They cords can easily create a big mess.

___ Toilet paper. If you have space under your sink, store extra rolls there. If you have room for a basket on the floor, store extra rolls there. We all know there is nothing worse than having to hunt down more toilet paper when you gotta go, so keep your toilet paper as close to the, uh, toilet as possible.

___ First Aid Kit.

What to Maybe Store in the Bathroom

___ Jewelry. I keep a small tray next to the sink where I put my everyday jewelry like my watch and pearl studs.

___ Special occasion makeup. I keep all of my makeup in the same spot, but I know some people have larger collections, and you don't want your special occasion makeup crowding out the basics you use everyday.

___ Linens. If you don't have a linen closet, store linens on bathroom shelving.

___ Papers and reading material. If you must store reading materials in the bathroom--I have seen some pretty interesting reading selections--then containerize them! A pile of magazines and books strewn across the floor really adds to the clutter and uncleanliness of a bathroom. Try a wall magazine rack or a small basket.

What Not to Store in the Bathroom

___ Medications. After researching this article I have moved mine to the kitchen. Firstly, because when I take a pill, I usually take it in the kitchen because that's where the water is. Secondly, humidity is bad for most meds. Move your medications to a small-ish bin in the kitchen.

___ Non-waterproof electronic equipment. If you like to listen to the news while you take a shower, invest in a waterproof radio or MP3 player. Don't bring your ipod into the bathroom and leave it around the sink or in the shower.

___ Paperwork, mail, bills. This is just a no-brainer, but I have been it done. Paper gets warped in humidity and when wet. Do not do it!

Bathroom Storage Tips

There are three main things to think about when planning bathroom storage:

Declutter regularly. Bathrooms can get really cluttered because there are so many one-offs items that are carried into this room. Having a plan to regularly declutter the space will go along way.

Even big bathrooms often offer little storage. You may have to create space by really maximize those nooks and crannies above the toilet, and if you're lucky enough to have them, the insides of cabinet doors.

Make sure your storage solutions are user-friendly. By "user-friendly" I mean they must be large enough to hold what you need, but small enough to easy fit back under the sink or in the linen closet.

Thanks, I'm new here today and hope to see lots of new ideas here. Some places are not that active, but I'm thinking....this place will be good for me.

Blender, Mixer, and Food Processor
--Pop off the blades and any other removable parts.
--Soak them in a sink filled with warm water and dishwashing liquid.
--Hand wash the blender carafe and the food-processor bowl using warm, soapy water.
Or wash them on the top rack of the dishwasher.
--Scour the blades.
--A nylon brush should remove any particles caked onto the blades.
--Dry the pieces thoroughly.
--To prevent rust, dry the blades with a clean towel or cloth.
-- Wipe down the bases with a cloth dampened with water and dishwashing liquid.
--Never submerge them in water, which might damage the machinery of the appliances.

Coffeemaker
--Remove and wash the filter and the carafe.
--Soak them in warm, soapy water; rinse, then replace them.
--Descale water deposits.
--Pour two to three cups of water and an equal amount of white vinegar into the water chamber and hit the brew button. Turn the machine off halfway through the cycle and let the solution sit inside the chamber for an hour. Then turn it back on and complete the cycle.
--Run two cycles of plain water through the machine.
--This ensures that you’ll rinse out any leftover vinegar before making your morning brew.
--Wipe down the outside.
--Use a cloth wet with water and dishwashing liquid.
--Dry with a clean cloth.

Dishwasher
--Pull out the racks.
--Wipe down the interior with a cloth and warm, soapy water. Scrub the racks’ wheels (where bacteria hide) with a toothbrush.
--Fill the detergent cup with white vinegar.
--Run an empty cycle to wipe out lime deposits. You can also dump a packet of powdered lemonade into the detergent cup and run the washer empty. The citric acid breaks up stains.
--Dust the fan slats.
--A vacuum’s brush attachment is best.
--Clean the door.
--If the door is plastic, wipe it with a cloth and all-purpose cleaner. For stainless steel, dampen a cloth with water and dishwashing liquid, wring it out, and wipe the door with the grain.
--Dry with a clean cloth.

Electric Can Opener
--Unplug, and remove the cutting wheel and the lid cover.
--Soak them in the sink in warm water and dishwashing liquid.
--Loosen grit stuck on the pieces.
--Scrub them with a nylon brush or a toothbrush. You can also use baking soda and water to scour the blade.
--Rinse the pieces with water.
--Then dry them thoroughly—especially the metal cutting wheel—with a clean cloth to avoid rust.
--Wipe down the base with a cloth dampened with dishwashing liquid and warm water.
--Never immerse the electrical base in water, which could short the fuse.

Microwave
--Prep for cleaning.
-- Place a coffee mug filled with water and a few slices of lemon in the center of the microwave and run the machine on high power for three minutes. Let the lemon water sit inside for three more minutes. The steam will soften food spills, and the lemon aroma will eliminate odors.
--Clean the interior.
--Wipe down the walls with a cloth soaked in warm, soapy water.
--Remove the turntable.
--Scrub the wheels with a toothbrush.
--Clean the exterior.
--Wipe the exterior of plastic machines with a cloth sprayed with all-purpose cleaner, making sure to clean the fan slats. For stainless-steel machines, dip a cloth in water and dishwashing liquid, wring it out, and wipe with the grain.
--Buff dry with a clean cloth.

Toaster and Toaster Oven
--Unplug the appliance.
--Empty the crumb tray.
-- Remove the toaster-oven racks.
--Let them sit in warm, soapy water, scrubbing off any charred food with a sponge or a brush.
--Clean the interior.
--Wipe the toaster oven’s inside with a cloth wet with water and dishwashing liquid. Dislodge burned-on food with a toothbrush or an old credit card. Reach into the slots of a regular toaster with a wet pastry brush.
--Remove the knobs and soak them in soapy water.
--Dry and replace them.
--Clean the exterior.
--Wipe the outside with a soapy cloth, scrubbing around levers, knobs, and door hinges using a toothbrush. If the exterior is chrome, crumple a ball of aluminum foil (shiny side out) and rub off rust spots.

I especially like the list of Daily things to do; sometimes it just seems to get away on you so I can see the wisdom here. We are on vacation right now but staying in a friend's house and I am very conscious of keeping it in order!

Daily Organizing Checklist

Follow this checklist every day to maintain an organized life.

√ Wash Dishes and/or run dishwasher. Wipe kitchen counters.

√ Take out the trash.

√ Make a decision on the clothes worn today. If they need to be washed, throw them in the hamper. If they need to be dry cleaned, place them in the dry cleaning bag. If they just need to be aired out, hang up to air.

√ Grab a basket and walk around the house before bed. Pick up clutter and return it to its designated place.

√ Sort the mail. Open it over the trash can or recycling bin and dispose of junk mail. Sort the rest into files or folders: to do, to pay, to consider, to read, awaiting answer, hold and refer.

√ Pack lunches and set out breakfast dishes. Decide on tomorrow's dinner and make necessary preparations.

√ Lay out tomorrow's clothes for each household member.

√ Place by the door: backpacks, shoes, coats, briefcases, purses, sports uniforms, and anything else that will be needed tomorrow.

√ Make tomorrow's to-do list for work and home. www.ineedmoretime.com/daily.htm

October Monthly Motivators:
1. Your Home. It's time to organize your kitchen. Start by removing everything from your counters. Put back only those items you use every day.

2. Your Family. Visit a Pumpkin Patch or an Apple Orchard this month. Organize a hay ride for your family and friends. Enjoy the beautiful weather together.

3. Your Health. Improve your mental health. Do something BIG for yourself in October. Want an example? I meet my college friends for a long weekend at a beach every October. Try a day at a local spa, a nature walk or simply a night out with old friends.

4. Your Stuff. Like most people, you probably have things you never use lying around your home. Choose one day each week in October and remove seven items from your home. Place them in your car and take them to the local Salvation Army or homeless shelter.

5. Your Money. Organize your bill paying system this month. consolidate your credit cards. Sign up for direct payment.

6. Your Job. Organize your computer files this month. Print a list of files. Make sure you know what each one is. Delete those you no longer use.

7. The Holidays. Buy or order your holiday cards this month. Shop for the second 1/3 of your Christmas list so you'll finish before Thanksgiving. www.ineedmoretime.com/checklist.htm

Daily Organizing Checklist

Follow this checklist every day to maintain an organized life.

√ Wash Dishes and/or run dishwasher. Wipe kitchen counters.

√ Take out the trash.

√ Make a decision on the clothes worn today. If they need to be washed, throw them in the hamper. If they need to be dry cleaned, place them in the dry cleaning bag. If they just need to be aired out, hang up to air.

√ Grab a basket and walk around the house before bed. Pick up clutter and return it to its designated place.

√ Sort the mail. Open it over the trash can or recycling bin and dispose of junk mail. Sort the rest into files or folders: to do, to pay, to consider, to read, awaiting answer, hold and refer.

√ Pack lunches and set out breakfast dishes. Decide on tomorrow's dinner and make necessary preparations.

√ Lay out tomorrow's clothes for each household member.

√ Place by the door: backpacks, shoes, coats, briefcases, purses, sports uniforms, and anything else that will be needed tomorrow.

√ Make tomorrow's to-do list for work and home. www.ineedmoretime.com/daily.htm
