Quick Tip Tuesday: Some Useful Holiday Organizing Tips

We are in the middle of the holiday season. We can all use any tips we can to help the season go smoother.  Here are some useful tips:

1, Clear Plastic Bins are good to keep wrapping supplies. They have them to fit every size and shape. They have long ones for wrapping paper on the rolls to small drawers sets for tape, scissors, tags, ribbons, etc.

This alt value should not be empty if you assign primary imageRibbon Storage Box w/Divider, Tray, Red Lid/Clear Container, 16" L x 5-9/16" W x 5-1/2" H - Pkg Qty 6

2, They have special bins for storing Christmas lights. I just found this out not too long ago. Very helpful in the keeping the lights de-tangled.

3. There are ornament storage boxes too!!

Shopping For Supplies

biglotslogo

Getting the right organizing products for your home, office or garage is important. The pricing on supplies can range from high-end to super cheap. My feeling is that sometimes you don’t need to pay high-end prices for good-looking supplies AND some super cheap places carry super cheap crap that doesn’t hold up! I’m going to share with you a few stores that I like and go to for my Organizing needs . The pricing on these ranges from mid level to inexpensive but the materials are good and there is variety of choice!! (You can click on the links for more details.)

Big Lots

The Container Store

Target

World Cost plus Market

Sometimes its good to go INTO a store rather than online and touch and feel the supplies. AND you might find items discounted that you wouldn’t find online. Now occasionally I have found great items at garage and yard sales. I’ve picked up a few good things at the 99 Cents store and at Ross. Recently I found some really nice shoes rack at a local Thirft store. But in general, those top 4 stores i mention above work really well for me and my practice.

Super Tip Tuesday: A Child Size Hanger IS Hard To Find

I used to throw away or ask the cashier to keep the hangers that came with kids clothes. Not anymore. I have found that it’s not easy to find child size hangers out there. So I say that you should keep the smaller hangers for the kid clothes. Usually for their dressier stuff such as school uniforms or suits or church clothes.

There are some places online that sell child size hangers:

I Can Blink Again!!!!

20140108_153913

As I’ve stated before in my Good To The Last Drop…Keurig blog, I LOVE Coffee!! But I do know that too much coffee has negative effects on me.I used to drink at least 2 cups in the morning and one in the afternoon. I would find myself jittery and when it was time to go to bed I was wide awake. After years of this, I decided to cut down.

I HAVE to have my one cup of coffee in the morning! Over time I have managed to get myself to the point where I can have another cup of coffee in the afternoon but i would water it down.Or I would have a SMALL cup of coffee. Well not anymore!!! I was shopping and ran across from Green Mountain Coffee brand, Haff Caff!! TOTALLY changed everything for me! Its less potent and still provides the right amount of coffee stimulation I need to continue my day. It’s for the Keurig and I bought 3 boxes of it. You can find it at Bed Bath and Beyond and Target, but you can probably find it anymore Keurig K-Cups Coffee are sold.

NO Wire Hangers….EVER!!!!

joy-mangano-huggable-hangers-49pc-set-with-totes-chr-d-20130624121552217~262028

 

Wood hangers are nice to look at but they tend to take up too much space in the closet (in my opinion). The plastic hangers are light but don’t look as nice.  Wire hangers are not even up for consideration. Yes they come with your dry cleaning, but you shouldn’t leave clothes in dry cleaning bags for too long for they can trap moisture. ( Another tip is to bring back all the wire hangers to the dry cleaners. It’s good to recycle.) In my practice personally AND professionally are the “huggable” hangers. And one of the brands I use and recommend are by Joy Mangano. I found her on HSN (Home Shopping Network) and Target. 

Joy Mangano Huggable Hangers are light yet sturdy and the best part is that they are covered in velvet, so your clothes never fall off. Also they are thin and stylish, and they come in different colors, so they can brighten up your closet space. I highly recommend them. You can go to target.com or hsn.com for more details and to buy them.
