Plan Ahead

I find printing out the menu plans for the week from my Nutrition plan SparkPeople and using that to plan my shopping list helps me eat healthy throughout the week.

Don't Dither Move On

If packing up a house, don't dither over items you're not sure if you want them packed or are unsure how to pack them. Keep moving and working on the sure things. You'll find while you're showering or doing other tasks, your mind will be working behind the scenes to help you decide.

A place for everything

I now use the example of knowing exactly where my toothbrush goes to keep me on track for having a place for each item as defined as that.

How Spring Cleaning Helps!

One doesn't have to spring clean all the time ........ in fact LESS if you are vigilant about picking up after yourself and having a place for everything. I find I can clean as I go on a daily basis, minutes here and there ........ and find extra time for workouts, and fun in general! (wrote blog: Spring Has Sprung" on 3-15-14) Hope you come read.

Sticky Tack

Sticky Tack (also called Museum Putty) is great for holding things in place. I've just used it to fix some desk organizers in place (they were sliding all over whenever the drawer was opened & closed; now they stay put)! emoticon

Organize by Category: Plastic

Oh those nagging, messy cabinets that have mis-matched plastic ware (maybe never used jars, too) piled high because they are assorted sizes.

Throw out/recycle all the ones that are not PBA free. Toss the ones without lids or bottoms for that matter. If possible, replace them with PBA free or glass storage conttainers that nest and have interchangeable lids.

Mason jars also make excellent storage containers.

Organize by Category

One room at a time, one category at a time.

Today's focus: anything made of cloth. Pillows, linens, clothing, curtains, dish towels, etc. Even rugs!

Save, throw away or donate? Taking care of this one area will make a big difference in how you feel.

Declutter and Help Others

Once a month I fill a plastic egg crate with items I don't need and donate it to the Salvation Army or another local thrift store. It's a good way to get rid of clothes that no longer fit (hopefully due to weight loss) and it helps those in need. Other items are also helpful - the towel with the bleach stain on it can help a shelter animal, the duplicate blanket or coat you got for Christmas can help a homeless person, etc.

If you keep track of it, you can even get a tax write off!
