4 Weeks to a More Organized Home {Simplified}: Day 8

Welcome to the 4 Weeks to a More Organized Home {Simplified} series!

From November 5 to December 7 (skipping the week of Thanksgiving), every weekday morning at 9 a.m. EST, I’ll be posting the day’s assignment and then every evening at 7 p.m. EST, I’ll be posting my progress and pictures, along with a link-up for you to share your progress and pictures, too.

Day 8 Assignment

::Get dressed in something that makes you feel great {there’s something about dressing in clothes that make you feel great that just gives you more energy and zest for life! Get your free copy of SarahMae’s ebook, Frumps to Pumps, if you need more motivation in this.}

::Sit down with a cup of coffee or tea, refer to your list of weekly goals, and make a list of no more than 5-7 specific things you want to accomplish today.

::Set the timer for 10 minutes and go through your messiest dresser drawer. Remove items you no longer love, need, and/or wear. Quickly organize the remaining items.

::Wipe down all the door handles in your home. You can use a damp rag with a little disinfectant on it or a cleaning wipe. If you have younger children, they’d probably enjoy joining you in tackling this project!

Take pictures of your accomplishments and blog about them, if you’d like. And then come back here at 7 p.m. EST to share your progress posts or tell us about your accomplishments in a comment.

    Love this!!! Should I attempt to catch up or just jump in now? Decisions…decisions…decisions…LOL

  • I’m REALLY going to do my best to join you today! I can do 10 minutes. Although I think my messiest drawers needs more attention that that. We’ll see!

    I’m going to get my kids to wipe down the door handles 🙂

  • Amber says:

    Yay! I just cleaned out my dresser, so that’s done. And I only have 4 interior doors, total, in my home. This turned out to be an easy one. Though one of my to-do items involves a giant pile of paperwork, so maybe not.

  • Victoria says:

    I cleaned the door of my room of the week this Monday. It has some really bad grime on it that was removed easily with a mix of 1/2 cup of Super Washing Soda in about 1 gallon of water. I found this mix also took finger prints off walls really well too.

  • My son LOVES helping with this! I give him a rag and a squirt bottle filled with natural cleaning solution. He has a blast!

  • Shelly says:

    Door knobs are something I know I can get the kids to help with today. My son loves to squirt cleaner on things so this will be something he will want to help with.

  • Meredith M. says:

    I have to tell you, it’s become a weekly habit to wipe the door handles, ever since the first organizing challenge from April!
