Get Organized Now in February

Feb 1 Valentine's Day is approaching. Purchase, order or make gifts for your loved ones so you're ready for giving them on February 14th.

Feb 2 Celebrate GroundHog Day by doing your favorite outdoor activity that's in line with the current season.

Feb 3 Empty one of your dresser drawers, weeding out anything that no longer fits or you no longer enjoy. Organize the rest back into the drawer.

Feb 4 Gather all loose coins and store them in a jar. When it's full, bring it to the bank and cash it in for dollars.
Feb 5 Rid the inside of a cabinet or armoire of all clutter.

Feb 6 Donate outerwear that doesn't fit or is no longer becoming. This way, someone else can make use of it, rather than it gathering dust in your closet.

Feb 7 Broaden your horizons and visit a local store you've never been in before, such as a health food store, a gift shop or a boutique.

Feb 8 Make a double-portion meal for supper. Eat half tonight, and freeze the other half for next week.

Feb 9 Empty your purse of all trash and items you no longer use.

Feb 10 Behind on sending out thank you cards for a gift you received? Write at least one out today and mail it.

Feb 11 Buy or borrow a new book for your child, niece, grandchild, etc. Encourage the benefits of reading!

Feb 12 Complete at least 1 task on your To Do list, before you change out of your pajamas and get dressed today.

Feb 13 Do something heart-healthy, like making a low-fat meal, going for a walk or signing up for a nutrition class.

Feb 14 It's Valentine's Day. Take the day off from chores, and do something that warms your heart--or better yet, someone else's.

Feb 15 Dust off any dust that has settled on television, radio or electronics cords.

Feb 16 Empty out the Recycle Bin on your computer to rid it of unwanted files.

Feb 17 Delete all email messages that are cluttering your inbox--jokes, forwards, messages from companies you don't plan to buy from and any other messages you don't need.

Feb 18 Discard any food in your pantry that has been opened, but not eaten for months.

Feb 19 Honor President's Day by learning about a president you don't know much about. You can never be too young or too old for a quick history lesson.

Feb 20 Spend 15 minutes weeding out the thickest file folder(s) in your filing cabinet.

Feb 21 Today is Ash Wednesday. Whether you celebrate this observance or not, use today to reflect on and celebrate your beliefs and/or customs.

Feb 22 Organize all of your tools into a tool box that is sized appropriately for the number of tools you have. Otherwise, organize your tools on a pegboard so they're easily found when needed.

Feb 23 Bring your car to the car wash and get it cleaned.

Feb 24 Banish all clutter (magazines, bills, toys, etc.) from your kitchen table. You should be able to eat there, without having to clear it off each time.

Feb 25 Trade in your child's broken crayons for a fresh new box.

Feb 26 Dull knives in your kitchen? Sharpen your set, or consider investing in a better set. It's amazing how much time a good set of knives can save you in the kitchen when preparing meals.

Feb 27 Be nice to your feet. Give yourself a home pedicure, or get one done professionally. If you're experiencing foot pain, make an appointment to see a foot doctor.

Feb 28 Begin going through your spring wardrobe (yours and your family member's), getting rid of anything you don't plan to wear as the warmer weather approaches.
