summer organizing tipsSummer’s here! It’s a wonderful time to get organized, so you can enjoy the sunshine!

READY FOR A COOKOUT

Do you have cook outs in the summer? Keep all of the barbecue supplies (charcoal, wood chips, lighter fluid, spatula, etc.) organized in a crate, so they’re handy when you need them.

MAKE A SPLASH

If you have a swimming pool, don’t spend the summer searching for misplaced pool supplies. Keep your chlorine, testers, pool patches, etc. in one consistent place.

IT’S A FAMILY AFFAIR

Mowing the grass, gardening, washing the car, cleaning out the garage–it really should be a family affair. In other words, everyone should help. Make a summer schedule, assigning various members of your family to specific chores. Make sure you follow-up so it gets done.

TAKE IT OUTSIDE

The weather is just beautiful and you want to be outside, but you have chores to do. A dilemma? It doesn’t have to be. Take your chores outside! There are tons of things you can do in your own backyard. Read your mail, balance your checkbook, polish the silverware, write a letter by hand or on your laptop, make some calls on your cell phone, peel potatoes–the list is endless.

HAVE A DE-CLUTTER PARTY

Schedule a day on your calendar to have a de-clutter party. Invite  family and friends. Everyone should bring at least 3 things they no longer need or want. These items can be placed in a large box and then donated the next day to a charity organization. (Many charity organizations will actually do home pick-up, so check with those organizations in your area.) This is a great way to get organized, but also to help out those people that are less fortunate.

MAKE PLANS FOR SOME OUTINGS

Many towns offer free or low-cost art fairs, festivals, concerts, sporting events and more. Why not take a few moments to find out what’s happening in your town? Then, schedule some time on your calendar to have some fun.
