31 Ideas for 31 Days from Real Simple

Trying to get organized and have a little fun doing it? Real Simple can help with their “31 Ideas for 31 Days“. They’ve even gone as far as giving you a little PDF file to download as a checklist. Here are some tips that I appreciated:

1. Write a bona fide letter to someone who won?t expect it. Think of a person who really matters to you and recount one of your most hilarious moments together, thank her for guiding you through a difficult time, or just tell her that you want to get together more often.

2. Enlist everyone in the house, including the kids, to speed-clean one drawer. Set up a box for donations and another for trash. (Just be sure to survey your children?s pulled items, in case those pricey ballet slippers made their way into the Salvation Army bin.)

7. Donate to your favorite charity. Visit www.justgive.org and browse the nonprofit?s 19 different categories (such as ?disaster relief? and ?environment?), research a charity?s financials, decide where to give, and make a donation.

and 16. Clear all expired food from the refrigerator. For specific guidelines about when to throw out everything from cherries to ketchup, see Surprising Expiration Dates.

Lots more are on their site right here.
