Clean Your Oven…Again

I know we cleaned our ovens before Thanksgiving so some of you may get the day off today.

However, if your oven got dirty ON Thanksgiving like mine did, we need to do it again.

Why? Because it is SO MUCH EASIER when you clean the oven often. Trust me. I’ve started to wipe mine out on a regular basis and it’s made all the difference in the world!!

So, get your oven ready to bake Christmas cookies, Christmas dinner or just regular dinner!!

Clean Your Oven…Again

  • Give it a quick scrub if it’s not too dirty.
  • Use one of these three tips if your oven hasn’t been cleaned in years.

Then find something yummy to make :)

Prepare for the Upcoming Week

Spend a few minutes today doing a brain dump. Make a list of all the action items floating around in your head; it doesn’t matter how small or how big. Just get everything out of your head and on to paper. Then review your calendar for the week adding actions from your brain dump in the appropriate daily to-do list. Don’t forget to add time next week to do your spring cleaning assignments!!

Christmas Shopping!!

Have you finished your Christmas shopping? Have you even started?

I’ve only gotten two things so far!! Just call me a slacker!

Anyway, I need to catch up so my family and I can have a fun wrapping party!!

I’m thinking a few of you might be in the same boat as me. So let’s take our usual cleaning time to catch up on our Christmas shopping!

Sound fun? I sure hope so!

By the way, if you are shopping on Amazon and have appreciated the work put into SC365 this year, I would be ever so grateful for you to use my amazon affiliate link. It doesn’t cost you anything extra. But Amazon gives me a small commission of any sales made through my link so it does help pay to keep this blog going :) Thank you in advance!

 

Your assignment for today:

  • Continue working on habit #12.
  • Finish that Christmas shopping!
  • Start working on your cleaning schedule for the upcoming year.

Collect Firewood

It’s finally starting to get cold around here! That means it’s time to light a fire!

If you live in an area where you wear shorts in December, then you get the day off today. The same applies to those of you who don’t have a wood burning fireplace. But for the rest of us, how about making sure we have enough firewood to last us a while?

That’s it! Do you have a wood burning fireplace?

Get Your Phone and Camera Ready for Christmas

  • Connect your phone to your computer and dump all the pics to the correct location. I’m on a mac and use iPhoto but you may use something different.
  • Connect your camera to your computer and remove them from your SD card.
  • Charge your camera battery.
  • Make sure you have additional equipment that you traditionally use (like a tripod).

Photo organization hasn’t always been a priority for me, but since it’s been added as a regular task on Spring Cleaning 365, I’m definitely more organized I hope it helped you as well!!

Less than 24 hours left…

I’ve spent the last few days telling you all about Clear the Clutter. I even made you a video explaining the whole thing.

Get Rid of ONE Thing You Don’t Need

LAST DAY!!!! 

The introductory price for Clear the Clutter will go up at Midnight tonight!!

  So, come on over and join us!!

**********************************************************************************

 

I’m in my office right now and my kids are going through one of my office supply boxes. They’ve pulled pens out of their packages and found some glue I picked up free when shopping back-to-school deals.

You can see a few of the items in the picture.

dried up glue

You may also notice that the glue is completely open and the top is off. But. NOTHING is coming out.

Want to know why?

It’s dried up. Completely.

I failed to mention that the back-to-school shopping trip was three years ago. Apparently school supplies don’t last that long. I’m making a mental note right now!

Anyway, I obviously don’t need those containers of glue any longer so I’ll be getting rid of them today.

Do you have anything around your house that YOU don’t need anymore? If so, take a few seconds to rid your home of some clutter!

Clean Up Computer Documents

REMINDER: Just a few more days to join us for

Clear the Clutter!

Details here. 

Throughout December, I want us to clean up our computers a bit. Not the outside…but the inside. That way we can be ultra organized in 2014.

clean up your desktop

Clean Up Computer Documents

Today, let’s focus on cleaning up our documents.

  • If your desktop is covered like mine, take a few minutes to delete and/or put in the proper location.
  • If your desktop is clean, take a few minutes to go though your documents folder, google drive, or whatever location you use most to keep documents.

This could take hours (days?!). But don’t get overwhelmed. Just set your timer for 15 minutes and focus. Then quit!
