Happy Christmas Tips From The Super Organizer!

Happy Christmas to everyone and I hope Santa brought you want you wanted!! Here a few tips for after the gift giving has happened:

 

Take all the gift boxes and if they are still in good use, fill them with stuff you don’t need and donate or give to a thrift store. Use them as holders for stuff. Kind of like the one in one out rule but a little more AND you are giving back! AND it reduces all the trash /recycling and clutter.

Of course throw away all broken ornaments, but here is one thing that is hard for people: an broken figurines, statues, wooden stars, etc…REALLY assess if its repairable AND are you going to take the time to fix it or have it fixed? If not and be honest with yourself, throw it out.

You want to really keep the holiday stuff manageable as you put it away till next year!!

New Years is next!!

A Big Tip For The Day After Christmas!

057847017_christmas_gifts_xlarge

I hope all of you enjoyed your Christmas Eve and Christmas Day! I certainly did. I got to spend time with my family in Sacramento. Always a joyful time! Now its the day after (or days after depending when you are reading this) and I’m going to offer one tip that works across the board to reduce the Christmas gift clutter.

If you or your family members received a lot of gifts, then here is a suggestion that works for me: One in One Out!

For every new pair of clothes items, take out a pair of old clothes items in your closet or dresser. Socks for socks. Shirt for shirt. Purse for purse. It’s a great time to take out something you never wear, or doesn’t fit or is worn out.

For every new kids toy, take out an old kids toy. Of course I’m not talking about throwing out Zachary’s favorite toy car, find something they outgrew, or never play with, or is worn out!

This can be applied to just about anything. Kitchen items, garage tools, jewelry, the list goes on.

donate

Recycle. Pass on. Throw out. Sell. Keep the commitment to yourself to stay uncluttered!
