Long holiday weekends are the perfect time to accomplish household tasks that you may have been putting off for some time now. To help you get started, we have compiled a list of things that you can tackle on your weekend off from work. Let’s take a look!
Tackle The Pantry & Fridge. The odds are that your refrigerator could use a good deep cleaning this weekend. Remove everything from the fridge and set it out on the counters. Wipe off all of the shelves and drawers with a disinfectant wipe. While everything is removed from the refrigerator, throw out items that have past their expiration date. Pitch empty bottles that may have been left in the fridge and consolidate into one bottle per condiment.
Dig into Your Messy Closet. From your hall closet to the master closet, you can tackle organizing them this weekend. Simply, remove everything from the closet and separate them into three different piles: trash, donate, and save. Once you determined each item’s pile, return all the items in the “save” pile back into the closet. If you are going through several closets in your home, it may be wise to have a big donation box ready to be filled. Take the box to each closet then afterward drop it off at your local donation center.
Take on The Laundry. The washing machine can do a world of wonders on a lot of items in your household. Take advantage this weekend by washing some of the items listed below:
- Car Mats
- Oven Mitts
- Pet Toys, Collars & Leashes
Change The Exterior Lights. Go around the outside of your home and check to see if all your lights are working. If they need to be changed, swap them out for some new ones. It is also a great time to take down any leftover holiday lights and decorations.
Clean Your Pots and Pans. A lot of your pots and pans will need a good scrub and deep cleaning. If they look like they have lived a full life, throw them away and purchase new ones when you can. Otherwise, a deep cleaning should do just the trick.
