3 Tasks to Involve the Family in Organizing

Laundry

Get the laundry under control. Designate a day (or two) each week rather than running small loads each day. Color code laundry baskets for each household member. Deposit clean, folded garments into each and have each person put away his/her own clothing. If you hate running to the dry cleaners, then it’s time to stop buying dry clean-only clothes!

Bathroom

Avoid confusion and foster accountability in the bathroom. Assign each family member a color for toothbrushes and towels. Give each person a drawer or storage bin for personal items. Toss expired medicines and cosmetics, tattered towels, and duplicate hair styling appliances. And finally, maintain order by scheduling time to organize on a regular basis.

Car

Give your car a good spring cleaning. Grab a garbage bag and round up all the papers, food wrappers, and random trash under the seats. Spray down surfaces with cleaner, and polish till they shine. Vacuum out all the winter “yuck.” Your car will look and smell (almost) like new!
