Don’t put off to tomorrow

Getting Organized:
In your Home and Homeschool 
 

Dear Friends,
Welcome to some new readers who have signed up in the past week! I am happy to have you join us as we declutter and bless our homes!
Wednesday is a special day. It’s anti-procrastination day! Do something you have been putting off. The guideline is to only spend 15 minutes or less on it. This is not an all-out day to dump clutter and sort.
We are deep into March now, and if you have been procrastinating your tax return, this is your reminder to get on with it. You have a little over a month to get it finished and filed. If you need to make an appointment with your tax preparer, do that do. Nothing lights a fire under you like an appointment to get your taxes done.
Your zone mission in the main bathroom today should not take long, but I want you to do it with care. Today you are going to go through your medicine cabinet and look for expired items. Be careful how you dispose of them.
Many pharmacies and police departments have a way for you to dispose of unused and/or expired medication in a lock box in their lobbies. I have seen them in many pharmacies, and I know our county sherriff’s office has one as well.
You do not want to flush or trash expired prescription medication. You can use kitty litter that has been soaked in water to dispose of medications. You would just use a black trash bag to hold the wet kitty litter and dump the medications in the bag. A hospice nurse taught me that.
Your other mission is to go around the house and look for things to put away. Call it a reverse scavenger hunt. Find one thing that needs to be put away. When you put it where it belongs, look for something in that area that needs to be put up. After you put that item away, find another one. Do this for 15 minutes and see what you can put away.
Your Zone Mission today is declutter expired medications, and then go through the house and find things that need to be put away.
Your Home Blessing for today is to wipe windows and mirrors.
My menu plan for Wednesday is soup, sandwiches, and a salad.
Have a blessed day!
