slides: Organize + Energize: 8 Ways To Organize Your Pets
Wednesday, March 06, 2013
Organize your pet just as you would organize your family, because they are family.
Here are 8 tips to organize your pet and all the stuff that comes with them:
Four: Contain their food
Try not to keep their items all over the home. Keep in a designated area so the entire family is aware of where items are stored. If you have the room, dedicate a closet space or an area in your home for the following.
Pet food and treats Keep in seal tight containers. Label if you must. Keep them stored together.
Medications Keep in a small bin with the items organized. When you need the medication, you will know exactly where it is and won’t have to go searching for it. Label if you must.
Clothing Keep this contained in an area also, depending on how many clothes your pet owns.
Shampoo, wash cloths, towels, blankets, etc. Store in bins or containers that work for you.
Eight: File receipts
Keep all important vet and store receipts filed and labeled. You can file it in the area of the home where you keep your paperwork or keep it on the shelf in the closet you have designated for your pet. You can also keep a spreadsheet with documentation of every time they go for their shots. Break out files into topics of each category. If you don’t have too much information, you can purchase an accordion file and label.
Have systems set up in your home for your pet's belongings and maintain those systems to keep your pet supplies from taking over the home. Organize! Energize!
