Super Tip Tuesday: Always Be Ready For The Beach!

Unless you are in Florida or Hawaii, now is the time of the year when its beach season!! Sometimes you know when you are going to the beach, other times it may be a spontaneous thing. One suggestion I have to is to pre-pack a tote bag!
Fill a tote bag with towels, swimsuits/trunks, sunscreen, hats, bottled water, non-perishable snacks, whatever you think you would take to the beach. Store it in the trunk of your car, or neatly corner of your closet. Have fun and be safe!

Super Tip Tuesday- Look At Your Chest of Drawers

LOOK at your chest of drawers.Is there one that is the most filled? Why is it filled? It is amount of clothes? Clothes not folded? When you look at the drawers are the others less full? Is there one that is almost empty?

Okay I gave you a big assignment with lots of questions! And I don’t want to overwhelm you.

So answer those questions and come back Thursday for the next step…

Super Tip Tuesday- Book It!

 

 

In our continuing efforts to edit our spaces and make them functional, livable and less cluttered, I am giving you another suggestion.

In my organizing practice I see many things that my clients have a lot of and one thing that is very common is BOOKS.

Books take up a lot of space! Books are an interesting item. They are usually read once (some people will read more than once) and then put away. Actually I should clarify, children’s books are read over and over again, but books for older people are using read once. Either way, we can accumulate so many books that they can overtake a space.

Children’s books can be a little tricky to get rid of. You have to work with your child to make sure they are over them. Or in cases of households with multiple kids, so you save the books for the next ones coming up.

Either way I encourage to LOOK at your current book situation.If you have books that you are NOT using or going to read again, its time to get them out. My exceptions are reference books, first editions, signed books, and a few books that might have a significant meaning to you. Otherwise pass them on to friends and family, give them a local charity, offer them to a school or library. We need to get into the habit of passing on things we don’t need or use to others you can and would. Let the flow happen. Pass it on!

Super Tip Tuesday: Organization Isn’t About Perfection

THIS is a great quote by Christina Scalise! I COMPLETELY agree! Perfection is NEVER the goal but it is unattainable. You will drive yourself crazy trying to reach it! Organization is about finding efficient ways to do things that HELP your life run smoother!

Super Tip Tuesday- Other Uses For Tabasco Sauce!

o-TABASCO-SAUCE-HISTORY-facebook
TABASCO SAUCE is deliciously hot and tastes great on certain food items. But I have found a couple of more uses for this hot sauce:
Toothache pain-  just put about 5 or 6 drops of Tabasco sauce on your aching tooth with a cotton swab. It numbs your tooth better than Orajel.
Cleaning Silver- with a few drops of Tabasco on a soft toothbrush and some warm water, scrub gently. Rinse well afterwards!
Who knew, right?

Super Tip Tuesday: Sometimes It’s Ok

itsok2

Just know that sometimes while cleaning out and organizing that problems can be unearthed as the layers are peeled back. It’s OK!! Getting organized isn’t always simple. Getting organized can present unseen issues.  For example you are cleaning out a space and find that all the walls are messed up. They could be discolored, marked up, stained. Holes, broken, or chipped. You didn’t expect that! You start to get anxiety about spending more money than you thought. Your blodd pressure starts to rise. I say STOP! Take a deep breath, count to 10, or whatever you need to get calm or stay calm, and take a break. Go back in when you are ready to handle the situation and handle it and move forward. DON’T let it stop you from the ORIGINAL goal and just remember things like this happen.
