A Checklist of What You Might Want to Do Before Spring

The weather will get better one day soon and you will want to get out more during that time.  This is why it is always best to get indoor chores done before you get outdoors more frequently.  So here is a To-Do list that will help some of you who have yet to get started.

1.  Take a walk through your home and note messy areas, unorganized areas, and other places that haven't been touched in a long time.

2.  List what needs to go, then set up an appointment with the local thrift store to come and take away those bagged and boxed items.  You will need to share the list with the store, so they know what they are coming to get.  Be sure you get a receipt for your donations because these will come in handy when you start itemizing your taxes (under charitable donations) for next year.

3. Look for ways to organize things better.  If you have many little things, get necessary items to organize them.  Search "how to organize..." include what you need to organize.

4.  Enlist help only if you know the individuals will not try to get you to keep stuff.

5.  Visit Ebay, the local pawn shop, a children's boutique, bookstores, take out an ad, and sell some of the things you don't use.

6.  Remove large furniture away from walls, move boxes and shelves and examine your walls, baseboards and flooring.  Those of you who receive much snow and rain might have a problem festering that you don't know about.

7.  Check under cabinets?  Is it well organized or could items be better managed.  Also, check for signs of mold.

8.  Clean rugs, wipe walls, inside of windows, and remove any trace of molds using bleach.

9.  Dust off items especially things that hang from walls, vents, and items that sit low.

10.  Remove any food products and medicines that are expired.

Taking the time to get your household organized while making some money and helping others will make you feel good.  You will be so glad to have fun outdoors without the worry of how your residence might look or smell.  Be sure to check appliances like water heaters, furnaces, air conditioners, refrigerators and more. You can search the Internet on troubleshooting these items and how what sounds mean trouble for your home.  One other thing, be sure to get those indoor odors under control too--check for things online that might help.  Periodically, open windows and shut off heat.
