Super Tip Thursday: Rotating Everything Will Help You See Your Items

Image result for rotate

It’s a practice I do at home and suggest to all of my clients. I started doing it to see what I actually owned. It morphed into a regular thing where everything gets USED. I ROTATE EVERTHING!!!

Whaate t does that mean? I pick a different pair of shoes every other day and wear them. I have set up my closet that my shirts are hung in a row and grouped together and i pick from the front and wear that shirt and work my way back. When I do laundry I put those shirts in the back of the line.

Another example, my tupperware. Of course I use the appropriate size for what I need, but like most of you I have several of the same sizes. I pick different one.

The results:

  1. You see everything you have
  2. Items last longer
  3. money saver
  4. You can get rid of things you DON’T use
  5. variety

Try in everything! Food. Towels. the list goes on…

Super Thought Of The Day: Practicing Self Care

I’m not feeling well today as i write this. Nothing related to my bells palsy (for a change) just a regular cold. I have been organizing a lot since I’ve been back in LA and I think I got run down. Self care is a big issue for me! Meaning, I fully believe in it. So i took the day off to rest.

I’ve learned to listen to my body and do what it needs. How many of us DON’T do that?  How many of us just push thru? I decided that I need to take care of my self but also those around me . I have a job today that I cancelled. I do not want to get my client sick and she get her family sick. That isn’t good. Also not all money is good money and I know especially when you are an entrepreneur, the tendency is to work no matter what! But that’s not good!

I choose to protect the village and get better so that I can better serve my community!

Super Tip Thursday: The Difference Between Neat and Organized

Being neat and tidy doesn’t necessarily mean you are organized!

The Super Organizer Universe

LogoColorTextBelow.111203434_std

There IS a difference between being NEAT and being ORGANIZED! Think about it! They are not the same. You can be neat yet unorganized. You can be neatly Organized. You can neatly hide things and clutter shelves and closets and it wont be organized. “Where Did I put those scissors?” They could be neatly tucked away in any number of places. An organized person would have the scissors in a certain place where they always know where they are.

Always strive to be Organized over Neat!

Guest Blogger: DIY Mama Erin Reynolds-Why Now Is the Right Time to Downsize

House, Keys, Key, The Door, Castle, The Background

Regardless of who you are, life can be overwhelming at times. There is always something to be done, something to be cleaned, and something to be repaired. If you’re tired of feeling overwhelmed, now is the best time to downsize and reclaim control of your life.

 

Managing the Move

Starting the downsizing process now, as opposed to later, will help you begin to eliminate some of the stress in your life. However, once you find the home of your dreams, moving becomes the most difficult aspect. You need to sort your possessions to decide what you can give to family, sell, or donate. You also need to research moving companies ahead of time. This gives you the opportunity to compare pricing and contracts while checking reviews. Make sure you get a walk-through and that your deposit, should you need one, is minimal.

 

Saving Money

One of the most persuasive factors in downsizing is the amount of money you can save. Most of us realize that when we sell a larger home, we can pay off a smaller one outright. Even if you don’t cover the entire cost, having a sizable down payment will mean less interest in the long run. Yet, that isn’t the only way you could conserve your finances. Utilities should be minimized in a smaller home as it will use less energy to heat and cool. You may also save substantially on home insurance and property taxes, depending on your state.

 

Creating Time

Large homes can seem luxurious, but they end up eating away our precious free time. Many of us are lucky if we only work a 40-hour week. In fact, most of us work over that amount. As such, our leisure time is limited and precious. Instead of taking time to clean and maintain a large space, a small home is easy. When you live in the space you need, rather than the extra we have all been told to want, you end up with more time. Think of how long it takes to mow a big lawn. If you cut that lawn in half, you can commit those hours to something you enjoy.

 

Lowering Stress

When we have too much space, we tend to put things where they are convenient, rather than where they should be. If the stapler belongs in the office, but we use it in the entryway, we may just leave it. This can accumulate and create clutter and chaos. It’s hard for our minds to relax when we live in a disordered environment. We feel guilty for not cleaning up, and even our creativity can suffer. When we live in a smaller, more contained space, we have an easier time keeping things organized. This allows us to truly enjoy the time we spend in our homes.

 

Exploring New Things

Have you always wanted to live in the center of a city? It can be impossible when we look for giant homes, but it could be downright affordable if we scale down. There may be many benefits to living in a new area. This is your chance to give yourself what you have always wanted. A shorter commute? Better schools? More diverse culture? Near the beach? When you downsize, you have the opportunity to live the life of your dreams.

Greater Luxury

Living large does not mean living well. Smaller homes can offer luxury the way McMansions just can’t. When you have relatively small square footage, you can afford your ideal flooring. You can install smart tech in every room. There are fewer pieces to decorate, so you can buy what you want without compromising. You don’t need to be limited to the indoors, either. You can add a deck or veranda to extend the living space you have while enjoying fresh air and sunshine.

We all deserve simplicity. Having less to clean, look after, and maintain can free up more time than you realize. Not only that, but the money you save by doing so can also be life-changing.
