Welcome to Day 9 of 31 Days of 15 Minute Organizing
Do you have a dedicated drawer in your kitchen for random items? There is a mysterious drawer in most of our kitchens called a Junk Drawer. I’m not really sure how it got that name other than people wanted an excuse to be able to throw anything they wanted to into a particular drawer. I don’t have anything against one drawer having random household items in it that don’t really belong anywhere else or are convenient to an area. The problem happens when things are just tossed in the drawer and they end up in a jumbled mess. You really can’t find what you need at that point anyway so let’s take care of that problem.
Organizing the Junk Drawer
Get your timer, the garbage can, and some small containers. Now you’re ready to tackle the Junk Drawer.
Welcome to Day 8 of 31 Days of 15 Minute Organizing
Organizing Laundry Supplies
Are you ready to set your timer for 15 minutes again? I think you can get the laundry supplies organized in way under 15 minutes, but we’ll give you some extra time today. Race the clock and we’ll see how well you do. You can always use that extra time to wipe the cabinets and washer and dryer down with a damp cloth and take a quick sweep of the floor.
I love beautiful storage and blue canning jars are beautiful to me. Dryer sheets, dry soap, and clothespins are kept in these jars and in a basket on top of the dryer. I didn’t have to go out and purchase any supplies for this organizing idea. I’m big into using what I already have to get spaces organized. It saves time and money.
Welcome to Day 7 of 31 Days of 15 Minute Organizing
Grab you timer again and set it for 15 minutes. You will also need to grab a garage can or bag because I have a feeling you’re going to need it. It’s time to clean out the bathroom drawers and you never know what you might find in there or how old it might be. While you’re organizing this space take a few minutes to clean out the drawers and cabinets with a damp cloth.
Welcome to Day 6 of 31 Days of 15 Minute Organizing
Set your timer and get ready to get your Linen Closet organized and in tip top shape. If you feel you can’t get the whole closet in order in 15 minutes, set the timer and work on one shelf at a time. Depending on how big your closet is, it might take a little longer. As you can tell, my closet is very small.
Welcome to Day 5 of 31 Days of 15 Minute Organizing
Today’s organizing challenge is super simple but will save you time from making multiple trips around the house distributing things to different rooms. You can use as many baskets, bins, or totes as you like, but if you have the space, one for each child works best. We are renting right now and short on space so the boys share one bin and our daughter gets a bin to herself. I have them by the stairs which is also by the back door. Since they slide under the bench you don’t really notice them.
Welcome to Day 4 of 31 Days of 15 Minute Organizing
Today we’re going to work on organizing the medicine cabinet. I have 3 in my house but only one is actually used for medicine. Since I stay on top of mine pretty well I can organize them in only a few minutes.
Welcome to Day 3 of 31 Days of 15 Minute Organizing
Get your timer and donation bag ready for today’s challenge of organizing hanging clothes. You need to do this quickly and not think about each item for more than a second or two. There’s a stat that says we wear 20% of our clothes 80% of the time. I’m not sure if it’s true but it does sound likely. Go through your hanging clothes looking at each piece of clothing and asking yourself a few questions.
1- Do I like this?
2- Do I wear this?
3- Do I look good in this?
4- Does it fit?
5- When was the last time I wore this?
6- Would I buy this again?
Welcome to Day 2 of 31 Days of 15 Minute Organizing
Are you ready to get your dresser drawers organized? Get that donation bag ready because I think you’re going to need it today. Now is the time to get rid of those old t-shirts and baggy shorts you haven’t worn for a couple years. If your drawers are overflowing you need to clear out those old clothes to make room for the ones that really belong there. Get your timer set for 15 minutes and get busy.
Welcome to Day 1 of 31 Days of 15 Minute Organizing.
We’re going to start with organizing some spaces in the bedroom. It seems like the master bedroom is always the last place to get decorated and organized. Starting here will hopefully give us the motivation we need to continue throughout the rest of the house. You don’t have to make big changes or spend a lot of time to be on your way to an organized home.
Welcome to my 3rd 31 Days Series! This series will be focusing on 15 minute organizing. There never seems to be enough time in the day to get done what you need to do without adding even more to it. That’s why I want to focus on getting small spaces organized in only 15 minutes a day. You might not have an hour or 2 but I’m sure you can find 15 minutes a day to work on a space. By the end of this series you should be well on your way to an organized home and the motivation to continue.
