Weekend Mini-Organizing Challenge: Top of Washer/Dryer
Need some organizing motivation and inspiration, or a gentle nudge? Subscribe to my blog to receive mini-organizing challenges several weekends a month. They will be automatically emailed to you so you won’t have to remember to visit the blog.
Mini-organizing challenges are doable and will focus on de-cluttering a tiny area of your home. If the weekend challenge “speaks” to you, then set your timer for 30 minutes and start organizing/de-cluttering. Stop when the timer goes off and enjoy the rest of your weekend knowing that you accomplished something! Of course you may continue organizing if you have gained the momentum you needed.
Mini-Challenge: Top of Washer/Dryer
Create an oasis of organization in your laundry area this weekend. What’s living on the surface of your washer and dryer? Probably items that don’t belong there, if you are like most of us. Toss trash, recycle items and categorize the rest by the location they need to return to. Place items for donation in a container/bag then focus on putting away those stray items you have just categorized. Lastly, wipe the lint, soap and grime off the machines. Oh my gosh, can you believe how great this feels?
It’s so tempting to put stuff on those surfaces (thinking you will put them away later). Work at keeping it clutter-free in the coming weeks by resisting this urge.
