An itchy sweater I never wear yet have held onto for 16 years in hopes that I someday would is now in the donate pile. Very liberating!

 

Now, put away all the coats and jackets that are hanging on the backs of chairs (we can't be the only ones!) or clear out a pantry item that's expired or that you never use.

My Kitchen table is now clean!

 

You ... Discard or donate 5 things from your junk drawer. Or 5 items from the toy box if the kids are already in bed.

Swept the kitchen floor!

 

Toss some unused or outdated entertainment...either a card game, board game, DVD or video. OR wipe over the top and front of your stove.

Did top and front of my stove today!

 

Next up, gather kids' shoes into basket or container of some sort OR place all library items in the same place so they are ready to return soon. ;)

This looks like a great thread!

 

I gathered the library stuff to bring back tomorrow (I work at the library on Saturdays).

 

The next person needs to toss a load of laundry in the washer or dryer/drying line (folding the clean stuff works here, too) OR clean a less than clean sink

We don't have a pet, and no coupons in Australia...but I did chuck out some videos tonight!

 

Get rid of a container or lid that has no matching lid or container!  OR clean a sink.

I found one container with no lid so I tossed it in the recycling bin. The sink will get cleaned after I roast the chicken tonight (so I can disinfect the sink).

 

Someone else needs to find a pile of junk thats been sitting around and recycle/donate/toss everything OR if you're having nice weather like we are here, spend a few minutes outside tidying the porch or yard.

I cleaned up half a pile of junk on a table in the basement (the rest needs to be donated), plus mailed a bunch of baby clothes to a friend, which got a bin out of the kitchen.  

 

Next person needs to toss/donate any cleaning supplies you don't use or pick one room and vacuum/mop under all the furniture (and the rest of the room too!).

Tossed a heap of old cleaning supplies plus a bottle of headlice lotion that had leaked...I had been wondering what that toxic odour was!!

 

Next person...clean off any clutter from the fridge (papers, unecessary magnets) OR give the bins and wastebaskets a spring clean (rinse out and dry).
