10 Things To Clean

catt-liu-1624

Here is the monthly list of 10 things you need to clean.  These are things that you normally don’t clean on a day to day basis.  Things that maybe you have forgotten about cleaning or things you have let go.  Take these ten for the month and get some things accomplished.

  1. Wash the pet dishes.  When was the last time you put Fido’s or Fifi’s dishes through the dishwasher?  Get them in there for an extra sparkle.
  2. Pet Food Storage. Staying in the pet theme, clean you pet food storage.  We take our dry cat and dog food and put it in a Tupperware-esque container to keep it secure and fresh. Get all those crumbs out of the bottom and give it a good soap and water rinse.
  3. Garden Supplies.  Fall is here.  I’ve already put away my flower pots.  I tossed a few that were on their last legs. Get rid of that awful tomato cage that doesn’t work, or the old rusty garden trowel.
  4. Desk Drawers. Since we are in the back to school time you can replace much of your supplies with new that is also on sale.  Get rid of the nubby pencils, buy an electric pencil sharpener, get new markers etc.
  5. Bathroom drawers.  Kind of the same as the above.  College is starting.  There are a lot of sales on cosmetics and personal care items.  Get rid of the unusable and empty for new.
  6. Bathroom holders.  Since we are on the topic of bathrooms it’s time to clean out all those bathroom holders.  Everything from the soap holder in the shower to the items underneath the sink give a good clean.
  7. Purse.  We’ve all had to clean out our bags.  Now is the time to take a moment and give the bag a real cull.  Take the time to buy some bag organizers to make things easier to find.
  8. Cup holders. My car cup holders are always getting disgusting. How are yours holding up?
  9. Glove Compartment/Center Console. Get those old CD’s out of there.  Can’t remember what that cord is for?  If it’s not your phone or other device let it go.
  10. Hobbies.  Okay, this is sort of a big category isn’t it? Well, I’m not asking you to clear out a hobby itself.  Just to pick one hobby, let’s say scrapbooking.  Go through all your supplies and clean them out.  An ink pad that is dry.  Let it go.  That baby bottle stamper you bought when your child was born, who is now 12 years old.  Donate.  You get the point.  Pick just one hobby though.  Let me know what you chose in the comments below.
