Take care of your environment We’re often talking about weeding out clutter or reducing TO DOs. Continuing with the reduction theme, this week’s mini challenges focus on reducing our consumption of resources...easy things that help us do our part in taking care of the environment.
1) Reduce possessions Reducing means less to maintain. Pick 10 items that you haven’t used in over 6 months and donate them to a friend or local charity.

2) Reduce temperature • Turn your water heater down to 120 – 130 degrees Fahrenheit. • Become more conscious of turning off the A/C during the summer on days that are not so hot. • Consider washing your laundry in cold water. Did you know that 90% of the energy used for a load of laundry goes to heating the water?

3) Reduce electronics Be conscious today (and all days) of unplugging or turning off devices when you aren’t using them...game consoles, your computer, DVD players and so on.

4) Reduce electricity Change five frequently used light-bulbs with energy-efficient ones. Always remember to turn off the lights when you’re not using them.

5) Reduce water See if you can take a shower in 5 minutes or less. Or shut off the faucet while brushing your teeth, until you’re ready to spit. Every opportunity helps out the environment...and can save you money! www.getorganizednow.com/organizing-c
