25 Organizing TO DOs You Can Do in 10 Minutes or Less

1) Weed out your junk drawer discarding anything unidentifiable.

2) Transfer large and rarely used appliances to someplace else in your home. Better yet, donate those appliances you hardly use.

3) Make sure every room has a wastepaper basket (also include one for the car). Then, store extra garbage bags or trash liners in your waste baskets to make emptying out the trash an even easier chore.

4) Write a dinner menu for the next 3 days. Include a grocery list to complement your menu.

5) Pick up 5 out-of-place items and find them a home.

6) Purge your closet of 10 items that you haven't worn in over 6 months.

7) Clear your medicine and bathroom cabinets of outdated or unused toiletries like shampoo, sunscreen, lotions, perfumes, make-up, and bath oils. Use a basket to store the bathroom items you plan to keep.

8) Sort through your child's dresser, pulling out clothes that are too small or rarely worn. Put these clothes in your hand-me-down storage container or your upcoming rummage sale box.

9) Empty the playroom of 10 toys that are no longer age appropriate for your children. Take them to your local charity.

10) Recycle old newspapers and magazines.

11) Stock your home office with pens, pencils, a calculator, paper clips, stapler and staples, stamps, scissors, file folders, and other essentials.

12) Set the timer for 10 minutes and delete as many old or unneeded emails as you can.

13) Create a family mail center in your home to store your incoming mail, with folders or file trays for each family member.

14) Make a list of 10 things or people you are thankful for. Place that list next to your bed so you can see it before starting your day.

15) Place small laundry baskets, one for each family member, by the dryer. Sort the clothes as you pull them out of the dryer. Place each family member in charge of folding and putting their own clothes away.

16) Place all laundry detergents, fabric softeners, stain removers and other laundry supplies on shelves near the washer and dryer.

17) Check out your basement storage area. Find 7 items that you know can be donated, sold at a rummage sale, or simply discarded.

18) Empty the contents of your purse or wallet. Decide which items can be recycled or thrown away. Only keep those items you use on a daily basis.


19) Get all the pictures off your digital camera. Either save them to an external storage device, print them, or both. Then delete all the photos stored on your camera's memory device.

20) Tidy up your car. Make it a rule that all personal items are out of the car each evening. Nothing should be left on the floor or on the car seats.

21) Make an individualized checklist of the items each family member needs before they leave the house in the morning. Post this list by the door for all to see.

22) Add something to the outside of your house to make it more special. Some ideas include: planting a tree, adding a vibrant doormat, adding some flowers, cleaning the front door, edging your sidewalk, you get the idea.

23) Put your best foot forward and organize your shoes. Use a shoe organizer that sits on your floor or shelf. Buy a shoe rack for each family member if necessary.

24) Create a car emergency kit. Include items needed in an emergency like a blanket, flashlight, jumper cables, water, and windshield wiper fluid. Store these items in a plastic bin in your trunk.

25) Toss anything in your refrigerator that's unidentifiable or expired.
