THE “Fresh Start February” Challenge: Day 23-28

Day 23: Create Your Daily Drawer

Create a daily drawer or bin that holds all of your everyday items. It will save you time in the morning since everything will be at your fingertips. Even if the contents are random, it makes a difference if everything is categorized.

Suggested products:

Day 24: Streamline Your Spin Cycle

Thinking through your categories and laundry process will help you set up a plan of attack. Obviously, you have detergent, but what about stain removal, dryer sheets, and other cleaners? Do you need space for rags and towels? Should you leave room for folding clothes, or do you do that elsewhere? Next, group your categories and decide what containers work best for each item. We love open front bins and turntables for easy access.

Day 25: Edit Your Appliances

Appliances are notoriously hard to store. Not just because they are bulky, but also because some come with so many bits and pieces. Instead of letting these items live out in space, group them together in open bins and add a label. And while you’re at it, if you haven’t used an appliance in years, go ahead and donate it!

Suggested products:

Day 26: Clean Out Your Purse

Toss all the trash (receipts, wrappers, etc.) and group the rest into broad categories (wallet items, technology, cosmetics, etc.) Using clear, color-coded, or labeled pouches to contain these items allows you to grab what you need without having to dig within a dark purse. If you change purses often or switch out your items regularly, store pre-made pouch kits for various occasions, such as travel or workday, and switch out when necessary.

Suggested products:

Day 27: Canister Your Favorite Snacks

To avoid running low on your favorite snacks, buy them in bulk and canister them. We also reccomend adding a custom label!

Suggested products:

Day 28: Schedule Your Mini-Edits

CONGRATS…YOU’VE MADE IT TO THE END OF THE CHALLENGE!! How amazing does it feel to have all these small projects under your belt? Now, it’s all about maintaining your new systems. Set aside 10 minutes a month to see if anything needs to be adjusted. The best part is you’ll never have to start from scratch again…what a relief!
