I know it may seem like making lists isn’t for everyone; but why not? Check out the NAPO-Ohio Blog to learn how to make lists work for you!
The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and participating local law enforcement are coordinating a nationwide drug “take-back” day on October 26th from 10 am to 2 pm. This one-day event will provide residents with no cost anonymous collection of unwanted and expired medicines.
Experts agree that take-back programs are the first choice as the safest and most responsible way to protect your family and to protect our waters by properly disposing of your unwanted and expired medicines.
Remember to enjoy yourself! Take Back Your Time Day is to get you to stop all the work and the hustle and bustle and schedule yourself some time off. The date of Take Back Your Time Day, October 24th, was set 9 weeks before the end of the year and done so to emphasize how Americans work an average of 9 weeks a year more that Europeans. NINE WHOLE WEEKS!?
So mark your calendars, pencil in some free time and when Thursday rolls around ask yourself, “Why should they have all the fun?”
Jackson Township is sponsoring a fall cleanup on Saturday, October 12th from 8am-1pm at the Jackson Township Administration Building.

As a professional organizer, I am constantly preaching to purge things that you don’t use or love. This is the perfect opportunity to get things out of your home that are just taking up space. With Jackson Township’s fall cleanup, donate, shred and safely dispose of hazardous materials all in the same day!

Now, this is a pantry! Whether you have a small or large pantry, arrange the food like it is at the grocery store. Group like items together; like pasta with pasta.
Always shop your pantry before you go to the grocery store. Keep only those go to items and not huge quantities. Stores are now open 24/7!
I love organizing over sized serving platters vertically. You can have your pick without all of heavy lifting of a stack.
It works well with cookie sheets, baking pans and cutting boards too.
You can have vertical storage built in, buy products that create it or make it your own with tension curtain rods.
