Getting Organized For The Holidays...In September?

Summer is officially over which means the holidays are right around the corner. Its the perfect time to start making holiday plans and get organized! Start putting together a holiday budget include, gifts, entertaining, wardrobe and travel. This way you can enjoy the holidays and avoid last minute spending. Start going through rooms to see what you can get rid of and what you will need. The kitchen, closets and playroom are perfect places to start.

Tip* Borrow, rent or re-purpose what you can instead of adding appliances, dishes or furniture to your home for a "once a year" event.

Organize Baby toys

Do you have toys taking over your home? A great way to keep them organized is to only keep out age appropriate toys. For instance board books are great for toddlers because they cant rip the pages. So resist keeping out the collectors edition of Winnie the Pooh until they are ready. As soon as kids reach a new milestone rotate out the toys they are no longer interested in and bring out the more challenging toys. This will make the transition to letting go of some of those items a little easier.

Heres An Idea...Organize Your Light Bulbs!

Did a light bulb just burn out and you have no idea where to find a replacement let alone what kind of light bulb you need? Make it easier on yourself the next time a bulb burns out by getting your light bulbs organized. Start by making a list of all the lights you have in your home. Be sure to include all inside and outside lights. Everything from desk lamps to under cabinet light bulbs. Include the type of light bulb it needs and how often you replace the light bulbs. Store all of your light bulbs together in a place where they wont get damaged.
Finally keep a copy of your list with the light bulbs and another in the contact list on your cell phone. This will help you when you are out shopping and need that replacement.
