January Cure: Day 1

As part of my New Years Resolution to get my life back under control I have decided to participate in Apartment Therapy's January Cure. The January Cure is a series of 31 daily tasks with the aim of whipping your home into shape, getting it clean, organized and under control.

The first assignment was to Make a List of Projects, to walk through your home and make a list of areas that need to be cleaned, re-organized or de-cluttered. I added the rule that the projects must not be renovation related projects, the must strictly be home maintenance, operation or organization projects. From the list, you are to highlight the 3 to 5 items that will make the biggest impact on the room and those are the ones you will focus on.

Have I ever mentioned I love making lists...


  • Defrost and organize freezers
  • Tidy and purge cleaning products


  • Organize tea cupboard
  • Clean cabinets
  • Tidy pantry
  • Organize and purge cookbooks
  • Organize spice cupboard

Master Bedroom

  • Wash and hem curtains
  • Clean pendant lamp
  • Vacuum loft

  • Organize filing
  • Organize and purge cords

Spare Bedroom
  • Organize and purge wrapping supplies
  • Organize and purge craft supplies
  • Organize and purge office supplies and relocate to office
  • Organize and purge toiletries and relocate to hall closet


  • Replace broken towel hook
  • Wash walls
  • Replace shower curtains
  • Clean shower caddy

Hall Closet

  • Organize and purge linens including blanket chest
  • Organize toiletries 

Seems achievable? Right? Wish me luck!
