January 2016 Challenge: January 19th, 2016


  • Declutter
  • Sort all lose items &/or boxes & items out of place
  • Organize and put away all things that are out of place
  • Storage selection-put all boxes, bins, containers away neatly
  • Clear any clutter on the floor
  • Quick wipe down of any surfaces
  • If weather permits (power wash or hose down your garage floor) here in Ontario it is winter so that would not be a good idea, lol. So I will sweep the floors
  • Wipe down garage door (if you have a door that leads into the house) inside and out.
  • Organize any cupboards & give a quick wipe down.
  • Spray disinfection spray in your bins recycling, garbage, and if empty your organic collection bin
  • Gather all garbage and get them in one pile ready to go. (either in bins or in a corner closest to your garage door)
  • Take an inventory list of your garbage bags (and any other you use)
  • Spray some air freshener around the space


*Remember the declutter bin/baskets/containers you did on January 3rd if there is one for today’s room then put the items away where they belong. Or if you added a new one from today’s challenge put it in the room it belongs and remember when the day of that room comes to also put away those items in there places.
