Super Organizer Saturday: What To Do With Duplicate Photos.

Image result for duplicate photos

Remember when you had a camera and you take pictures and then you had to get then developed. Oh my how we have changed. WELL many of those pics are out there. I remember when photo places would have specials like 2 for 1. NOW you have all of these photos and in many cases multiple copies.

Stacks of photos can add up and take up space! You don’t have to throw them all out. I have fun and meaningful solution.

Take all duplicate photos out. Your space will increase. Take those duplicate photos and give or send to the appropriate people. Maybe your aunt would love pics of you and her daughter who is no longer with us. Your best friend lost that picture of you and him and your dates at the prom. You can give him a copy. Its meaningful and decreases the clutter in your space. AND its sends positivity into the world.

YOU! Yes YOU! Are You Not Getting Things Done?!

Image result for setting a schedule


Here is something I do all the time, especially when I have a lott of things to get done:

The night before or first thing in the morning:

Get a piece of paper, get a calendar, get a white board, get something you can WRITE on! 

Make a list of all the tings you need to get done that day.

Group anything that is similar (ex. making reservations for travel: car, plane , hotel)

Next to each thing, give yourself an hour. Block out an hour of time. Write down the time (ex noon-1pm)

Make sure you schedule lunch and dinner breaks and if you have to, schedule 15 min breaks every couple of hours.

Then either get an old fashioned timer, or the timer function on your watch or phone and start.

Only Focus on that task during that hour. 

If the time goes off and you aren’t done, access where you are in the process and if you need more time, then add time and push everything back according to the added time. (ex- you need one more half hour, just adjust the times accordingly.)

if you finish early, then you can start the next project (and adjust the times) or take a break.

See how this system works for you! Are you completing tasks? Does your speed or pacing change knowing you have an hour?

I love it! Now I can approximate how long each task will take and schedule more accurately!

Try it !!!

Super Tip Wednesday: Color Code Boxes While Packing For Move!

Image result for color coded boxes

I saw this tip and HAD to share. Its from CORT Furniture Rental. and is part of a larger article by Madison White

I love this!!

Use a color code system (or at least a label system)

The most important thing to remember is to label. You may trust in yourself a lot to remember exactly what is in each box, but when the stress of moving day gets to you, you may not. You want your boxes to be as clear and direct about their contents as possible.

If it helps, try using different colors of tape for the different rooms for your boxes. On those pieces of tape, write more specifically what is in those boxes (silverware, hair tools, etc.). The colors will help you immediately know in what general area things need to go in, and the labels will help you find exactly what you need when it comes time to unpack.

Super Tip Tuesday: Downsize Before You Move


Image result for downsizing

Moving is a GREAT time to downsize! It is a great time to purge too. Here are some tips:

Decide what are priority items. Things you HAVE to take with you to the new place. Usually things like Beds, Tables, towels, pots and pans. But even with those items, you can downsize. Discard old towels that aren’t good; donate any kitchen items you NEVER use.

Recycle old magazines and mail!

Donate or sell old clothes you NEVER wear or don’t fit anymore!

It’s easier to bring less stuff into your new place. It can save you money on truck size for moving, or how you hire movers and their time cost. I’m always looking for ways to save money!

AND you can start fresh in your new home. Start it off right!! No clutter!

Are You A Text Message Hoarder??!!

Suddenly you can’t make a phone call?! Your texts aren’t sending on? You can’t receive texts? That all may be due to HOARDING TEXT MESSAGES!!!

This has happened to people I know! it’s a real thing. Its something we don’t think about. I didn’t! They had too many text messages stored in their phones. One of my family members has 4500 messages from ONE person! So I invite you to look at your text messages. Clear them out. Make sure you get what you may need from certain ones first!

Don’t be a text message hoarder!
