____ Jul 1 Organize and dust your book shelves.

____ Jul 2 Finalize your plans for the Fourth of July and gather up any supplies you need.

____ Jul 3 Consolidate beverage coasters in one place. Weed out your surplus. Organize the rest into a drawer.

____ Jul 4 Take the time to remember Independence Day (or an important event in your country’s history if you’re not from the USA). It’s a good day to spend with family studying the early history of your country and exploring historical sites.

____ Jul 5 Remove all papers, photos, magnets, phone numbers, etc. from your fridge surface. Clean off the refrigerator exterior. Then attach the necessary stuff only back on the fridge.

____ Jul 6 Spend the day visiting someone sick and/or elderly. Put together a care package for each person you visit...perhaps a few magazines and special teas.

____ Jul 7 Change the sheets on the beds. Replace any worn sheet sets.

____ Jul 8 Spend 30 minutes doing a “beat the clock” cleanup and then head to the library to borrow some fun books.

____ Jul 9 Build a tent in the family room if you have kids. If you don’t, find a comfy reading spot. Then, grab some snacks and spend the day reading those library books.

____ Jul 10 Disinfect one of the toilet bowls in your home.

____ Jul 11 Pack a summer essentials bag. Include towels, snacks, swimsuits, sun block, goggles, a first aid kit, swim toys, and a book or magazine. Already have a bag? Then check and replenish any used items.

____ Jul 12 Inventory your supply of postage stamps. Buy more at the post office, or online, if needed.

____ Jul 13 Go visit those in a Veterans Home. They will appreciate having visitors, and you will enjoy providing a listening ear and much needed visit to someone who is lonely.

____ Jul 14 Take the car to the car wash and fill it up with gas while you’re out.

____ Jul 15 Schedule a carpet cleaning appointment for the day after the kids are back in school.

____ Jul 16 Go through your pantry and storeroom. Discard outdated food and supplies. Make a list of needed items. Then head to the store.

____ Jul 17 Get an early start on preparing for the back- to- school rush. Check school supplies and clothing needs.

____ Jul 18 Wash the outside of the house and the windows. Remember to remove the screens and scrub the dirt and grime from them.

____ Jul 19 Plan next week’s menus, including some fresh finds from the farmers market.

____ Jul 20 Learn something about your ancestors.

____ Jul 21 Wash the inside windows and windowsills.

____ Jul 22 Christmas in July? Start making your gift list and set your budget for presents.

____ Jul 23 Wipe down all the doorknobs, light switches, phones, computer components, and other places germs may reside. This will help prevent summer colds.

____ Jul 24 Have a stay-cation. Explore the things to do in your own town.

____ Jul 25 Get everyone in the family to dust one room. Then, pull out the board games, popcorn, and other snacks, and enjoy a family night of fun.

____ Jul 26 Say something nice to three people on Facebook or other social media.

____ Jul 27 Take some time to update the family journals and personal journals.

____ Jul 28 Spend the day preparing the yard for August and harvest time. Pull all weeds, trim the dead flowers, and plan any changes in the landscape.

____ Jul 29 Clean your dryer vent, inside and outside.

____ Jul 30 Flip the mattresses and vacuum them.

____ Jul 31 Schedule dental and doctor visits. Make sure everyone is current on immunizations.
