Like it! I use the ten minute rule that I used with my children. 10 minutes in the main area of the house, picking up any stray items or stuff that should have been in paper recycling. Great room, dining room & kitchen almost presentable for a pop in visitor.

School supply shopping, our clutter control “Grab 10” system, and keeping prescription meds up-to-date...get more details on this week’s challenges. I know you can accomplish all of them!

1) Buy school supplies Last week, I noticed our local superstore was staging and assembling the school supply area. This week, consider purchasing any school supplies needed. Since you’re hitting the stores early, you’ll be able to get the supplies and designs you require and like. Bring a list with you so you remember to get everything. Check items off as you put items in your cart.

2) Grab 10 Spend a total of 5 minutes visiting a room in your house. Grab at least 10 items that don’t belong and stow them in a laundry basket. Spend the next 5 minutes putting these items away in their appropriate homes.

3) Go through prescription medicines Go through your medicine cabinet and pull out expired and unused prescriptions. Take off the labels and shred or rip them up. Most importantly, don’t flush or throw away your unused medications. Instead, contact your local governing body to find a drug disposal program in your area.

And here's 3 more from her newsletter:

___ Weed out a minimum of 5 file folders. Shred and/or recycle anything that is outdated or is no longer useful. This includes those travel brochures that are turning yellow with age.

___ Donate one pair of shoes, sneakers, flip flops or boots you never wear. This is usually the pair sitting in your closet, caked with hopefully, it's an easy choice to make!

___ Always looking for a pen or pencil? Make this little go-to station like I have. I purchased 3 mugs, a pack of pencils (sharpen all of them), and a pack of pens (all matching) from the Dollar Store and used a mesh, 2-tiered paper tray I had hanging around my house. On the lower shelf, I keep some file folders to hold kitchen appliance instructions so they're readily available when needed.
