As most of you know, I have been cleaning and re-organizing my house like crazy.  Below is a list that I did and I would like to share.  If you have some tips, please share as well:

.  My son and husband keep using new glasses every time when they drink water.  So I ended up with tons of glasses to wash.  So I put 3 glass coaster by the counter and labeled with our initials.  I told them every time they finished with their H2O glass, put on the coaster according and use the glass for the rest of the day.  It works great.

. Dishwasher rack for silverware - I was tired for resorting silverware and put them away.  So I labeled each small basket holder aligned with the settings of silverware tray.  1st soup spoon, large spoon, dessert spoon, large fork, desert fork, knives, and two misc. basket.  When the wash is done, now it is so easy to put them away, not just already sorted but also in great assembly manner.

. I put dryer sheet in each of the air vent.  Hmm, my house smells fresh whenever the cool air blows.

. Who said towels have to be laid flat, folded and put away??? I now roll them up and put them in linen closet - much easier and better to retrieve and pull out.  That applies to all the throws in the living room.  I roll them up and gather them in a basket.  

. Remote controls - uck, everywhere.  So I put a basket and all remotes are there.

. Cat wastes - first there is an air purifier nearby the litter box with a dryer sheet taped to the vent.  Then a small plastic container, with a pile of plastic bags, several dryer sheets, and a box of baking soda.  So I gather his waste in the bag, close the box, turn the purifier on.  Next time, put the crap in the same bag and empty once or twice a day.  Save me many trips.

. Masking tape with perm. maker are my favorite nowadays.  For some reasons, my hubby and son cannot find things, esp. food in fridge, they don’t look like women do, even if they are right in front of their eyes.  So I put left overs or items in plastic containers, labeled them (marker on masking tape).  Make sure the labels are in front of their eyes.  Nowadays, food are consumed (esp. left over).

. Rubber band is my next favorite item.  You will find tons of items being held or secured by rubber bands in my house.

. I put a container with cover under the sink for left over coffee grounds - again, they are great for plants (in door or outdoor).

That’s all folks and I look forward to hearing your comments and sharing more suggestions.
