The day after Thanksgiving has been designated as Buy Nothing Day.  As you strive to become organized institute your own buy nothing day each month and focus on getting organized.  

 On your buy nothing day, try doing this;
  1. Organize the top of your dresser, the chair covered with clothes or underneath the bed. 
  2. Organize your medicine cabinet and discard expired products. 
  3. Organize your garage so you can park your car there during the next snow storm. 
  4. Organize the junk drawer.   
  5. Organize your family room so you and your family can enjoy more time together without being surrounded by clutter.

  • Just like your closet start the project by purging or throwing items out that have expired and have not been used. 
  • Group like items together ( fruits, dairy products, beverages).  
  • Use a magnetic memo organizer to list items that you need to add to your weekly grocery list.
  • Purchase space saving beverage containers ( bottles that fit in the doors and cartons that fit on shelves) .
  • Use a lazy susan to maxmize shelf space.
