WHY WAIT UNTIL SPRING?
I say spring into action NOW and clean out those stuffed closets before putting all of the Christmas stuff back. If you're containers are nasty and gross, buy new ones (they're on sale now too!). Take this time..especially if the weather outside is frightful..to make everything inside delightful!
CLEAN LAUNDRY: We have weekly trips to the dry cleaner, so to keep everything organized I have tote bags dedicated to different activities and label each one with luggage tags. Dry cleaning in one, laundry in the other, donations in another, etc.
THE KEY TO HAPPINESS: If you are prone to losing your keys OR if you have too many to count, create this great little wall organization system..I took a cheap store bought frame, put cork board in the center and twisted key hooks into it. Each hook is labeled so if someone takes the storage keys, they know right where to put them when they come back!
OKAY KIDDOS: I love to get families organized and one of the best things to do is start at the front door. Creating fun things to get kids involved is key…grab a few bins for Target and put a photo of your kids on them, that way they know which bin to toss their junk into when they walk in the door, and right where to go on the way out!
JUST HANGIN: I helped a frustrated client last week with a very simple solution. I noticed clothes piled in her laundry room..when she caught my stare and ran over with excuses, I promised I wasn't judging but had a better idea for hanging shirts to dry..buy an inexpensive towel bar and hang it under the cabinet!
