January is "Office Month"!

I have been looking for a plan to get all those chores done that need to be done, but not that often. You know, like dusting blinds, vacuuming the car, decluttering clothes in my closet. I combined several plans I had seen online to create one that worked for me. I set aside a theme for each month of the year and started plugging these types of chores into each month, wherever they fit best. My goal is to spend 15 minutes a day on the list, 5 days a week, so I put about 20 items into each month. Hopefully, this will motivate me be better about deep cleaning, de-cluttering and other miscellaneous chores! I am going to post my list each month. Maybe this will help someone else. 

January is "Office Month"
  • Gather tax documents

  • Defragment computer, delete cookies & temporary internet files
  • Update virus software
  • Uninstall computer programs you no longer use
  • Clean computers
  • Go through & purge old files (actual paper files)
  • Organize files

(organizing & cleaning the actual office will come later.)
