April 1 - Sort through and consolidate your cleaning supplies. Store what you use most often in a transportable tote.
I began this task by opening up the cabinets under my kitchen sink:
(Only slightly scary, right?)
I started by taking everything out from under the sink and organizing the items into like piles. I was surprised by how many non-kitchen cleaning supplies had made their way to the space underneath my sink. I rounded up the items that belong in bathroom and put them aside to move to a more appropriate place.
I then placed all my true kitchen cleaning supplies into a handy blue bucket with a rope handle.
Finally, I moved all of the items back into the kitchen cabinet in a more organized setting.
You can see I have my dustpan on the left, my blue bucket of cleaning supplies, a few vases in the back, then car cleaning supplies, a gallon ziplock baggie full of scrubbers and my dishwashing detergents. There is also a small kitchen fire extinguisher behind the large white detergent bottle - just in case. I still feel the need to find a better home for my collection of glass vases - but for now, they will remain under the kitchen sink.
This was a quick, simple task - completed in under 15 minutes. However, I feel it is not truly complete until I tackle the disaster underneath my bathroom sink. That is a much bigger project and something I will save for a different post. So consider task 1 on my April checklist partially completed and stay tuned for a post on the bathroom cleaning supplies.
