With the new year and cold weather upon us, now is the perfect opportunity to assess the state of affairs in your home and tackle the neglected areas. Get started on your resolutions with our suggestions…
1. Have holiday gifts become a burden and taken over your home?
Put away the gifts you are keeping, then sort the remaining ones into the following categories: returns, regifts and donations. Be sure to check gift receipts for return/exchange dates.
2. Are you overwhelmed by incoming papers, schedules, invitations, etc.?
Create a system of papers you need to act upon and ones you can put away for future reference. Designate a convenient spot for those papers requiring action now and a file or binder for those you need at a later date.
3. Is your children’s homework space functioning well with a defined work area?
Place all the supplies they need at their fingertips and remove any distractions. It’s never too late to get successful homework routines in place.
The new year is the right time to SORT IT OUT… You’ll be glad you did!
