5 Small Organizing Projects You Can Finish Today

Sometimes you don't have time to get the entire house in order. Let's be real, there is life to be lived and work to be done and kids to drive from here to there. But many of us want to be MORE organized.


What about if we approached this task in a whole new way? Why not take the time we do have and optimize it? This is where small projects can make a BIG difference.


Here are five small organizing projects you can get done today:

TRIAGE YOUR MAIL

- Check mailbox - Put any recyclables into recycle bin - File any paperwork you need to keep long term - Place paperwork you need within the next two months into the "magic folder" (a magic folder is a folder you keep in an easy-to-access area which you check often)


CLEAN THE JUNK DRAWER

- Empty and decide what to keep/what goes - Remove anything that doesn't belong - Gather like items together (paper clips, push pins, etc)

- Sort out things like batteries by size/style - Consider using an organizer to corral everything into tidy spaces


FRESHEN UP THE FRIDGE
