June Tasks

.

Although many tasks should be done monthly, that makes for a very long task list.  I am working my way through replacing all of my previous monthly organizational pages to shorten them.  As before, each month I will list tasks or tips that can be done.  Next year will offer different information.  I will revise and replace the previous year’s Tasks and Tips posts with new information.  Select the ones that will be most useful to you.  I always combine tasks with food and other awareness events to keep things interesting.

June Calendar

Review your calendar one month in advance.  That gives you time to schedule appointments, watch for upcoming sales based on best times to buy, etc.  That also permits you to set alarms for upcoming activities and to get the needed supplies or ingredients.  Do yourself a favor and select at least one home preventive maintenance task each month to avoid costly repairs around your home.  Keeping up with maintenance is always cheaper than replacing items that break down due to neglect.  Calendars are also available for those who are visually impaired

SORT: Organizational Tips

Organization always involves some sort of time management techniques.  When you control your time, you get more done.  For example, one simple technique is to always complete tasks that you do on a regular basis in the same order.  Why? Because routines help to avoid forgetting tasks.  You will also most likely find ways to complete tasks faster with repetition.

One way to organize your task list is to know how long it really takes you to complete every task.  Most people have no clue how many minutes it takes to complete a task.  As you learn what methods work best for you, set a timer when you begin a task.  That will also help you to build a schedule that flows smoothly.

SAVE: Money-Saving Tips

Make use of cash-back programs such as eBates or Mr. RebatesI also use MyPoints reward program when merchants I use are not listed in either of the 2 cash-back programs I use.

Seasonal Tips/Tasks

Summer Solstice at 10:51 GMT, longest day of the year and the official start of summer. On Summer Solstice, the North Pole receives 24 hours of daylight and the South Pole receives 24 hours of darkness

Events and Awareness Campaigns

  • Metro offers a plethora of suggestions for June
  • June 14th is also the Army’s 240th BirthdayJune Lightening
  • Lightning Safety Awareness Week: 22-28 (Last Full Week).
  • The Pork Checkoff program offers pork industry scholarships for students who plan to attend veterinary or graduate schools and major in a discipline with an emphasis on swine.
  • National Flag Day: On June 14th, 1885, a 19 year old teacher placed a 10 inch, 38- star June Observanceflag in a bottle on his desk then assigned essays on the flag and its significance.  There are some ways you can keep this observance alive today.

Food Facts

Many times, you can save money when you buy produce that is “in season”.  I recently learned that seasonal produce in Florida is totally different from before I moved here from Delaware.  I use the seasonal food items when creating my menu for the month.  For example, June is National Dairy month and also National Fruits & Veggies month.  That almost always directly correlates to money savings as well as great tasting foods.

Reminisce

I’m a Baby Boomer.  I love to reminisce.  Add a little fun to your life.  I love to read about things that happened in the past.  One fun way to do that is to review a month at a time.  Some resources for June are: The People History, History Place, Demesne offers tips for home maintenance

Miscellaneous

Schedule your kids’ annual physicals right now so that you can get your choice of appointment times.  Most people wait until July or even later to schedule the appointments and by that time, the medical providers’ schedules are pretty much completely booked.  While you are at it, schedule your own annual physical and also your spouse or significant other.  Then, reward yourself for being this organized.

Alex’s Lemonade Days: consider making a point of helping out Alex’s Lemonade Days to help with the fight of childhood cancer.

National Pet Preparedness Month.  Your fur baby will be totally helpless if a natural disaster occurs.  Think of all the great joy that you get from your pet, and in particular, dogs.  Spend some time giving back to your furry friend.

In my own case, no matter how bad my day is, the INSTANT I step foot in my door, my dog makes things all better.  She is ALWAYS excited to see me.  Even if I have to go back out to run a quick errand right after I get home from work, she is just as excited to see me as she was before I ran the errand.

Set up a duffel bag or other type of bag so that you can GRAB AND GO if there is an emergency.
