Spring Fling Day 1 - Coats & Jackets

Spring Fling Day 1 - Coats & Jackets

Welcome to the Spring Fling. Join us every day in April to start flinging the clutter from your life!

 

Let’s start flinging with your coats and jackets. Go through your closets and fling the coats that have been outgrown, are getting ratty or you just plain don’t wear anymore. And let’s face it, as cold has it has been this winter, if you have jackets you haven’t worn, you probably aren’t going to. If you have speciality coats like ski jackets that you wear infrequently, don’t let them take up vital real estate in your hall closet. Move them to an extra room or box them up and put them in the attic.

 

Now go flinging!  Please come back and tell me how many coats and jackets you were able to fling today.

There's An App for That: Evernote

There's An App for That: Evernote

Evernote has become one of my favorite apps. I use it to store all kinds of information that I will want to retrieve later, things such as a great recipe from a friend, screenshots of other websites I am inspired by as I revamp my own website, and quotes that I want to remember. Basically Evernote is now my go-to spot to save anything I am going to need later.

 

Getting Your Kids' Papers Under Control: Landing Zone

Getting Your Kids' Papers Under Control: Landing Zone

Have a landing place for your kids' book bags and papers. A hook and an envelope or a bin can be a simple solution. Work with your kids to remember that this is where their book bags lives once homework is done and you’ll have to train them to put their papers and agendas in the bin. Teaching them responsibility for their belongings at an early age (and later ones too!) will be a great service to your children. You can even work their kids storage area into your family command center

Don't Resolve to Get Organized This Year

Don't Resolve to Get Organized This Year

Did you resolve to “get organized” in 2014? Would you think I was crazy if I told you, please don’t make that your resolution? No, really. The general idea of “getting organized” can be so overwhelming that you put the brakes on your forward progress before you even begin.

Shine On In 2014

Shine On In 2014

Welcome to 2014! Did you make resolutions for the new year? Have you broken your resolutions already? Whether you have or haven’t, the new year marks a time when we often decide we want to start fresh, make changes and generally improve ourselves to be better human beings. 

For the past  few years instead of making resolutions, I've tried to set goals for myself and come up with a theme word to serve as my mantra for the rest of the year. Abundance and growth were my theme words for the past two years and both served well as focal points for my goals and aspirations.
