Let's Get Organized in 2019!!

Happy New Year!

Getting organized is always a top New Years’ resolution. So, this year we are going to work together to make that happen! Each month I will share organizational tips and tricks. We’ll work room by room, as well ask keeping on top of monthly household tasks.

 

Christmas decorations

Since it is time to take down Christmas decorations, that’s where we will start. For this task you will need plastic tubs, paper, tape and a label maker or marker to label the tub.

As you take down your decorations, examine each ornament, decoration and string of lights. If it is damaged -throw it out. If you don't think you're going to need them again - give them away, throw them away, whatever you need to do to get it out of your house.

The next step is to store the items you are keeping into tubs. I use green for Christmas, orange for Halloween, etc. Visually that’s an easy way to see which tubs you’ll need for the appropriate holiday. You will need to label each tub by holiday and tub number (Xmas 1, Xmas 2, etc.)

Tape a piece of paper to the tub. As you add an item to that tub, write it on the paper taped to the tub. Once it is full and everything is listed on the tub, you can take a picture of the list and keep it in your phone, on your computer, or wherever you want to store the information.

By doing this now, decorating will be so much easier next year. Or if you want to use your lights (you know, you a little white twinkly ones) for a 4th of July party, you can go to your list and say, “Oh, those are in tub number five.”

Then you go get box number five and you get what you need. THEN you put them back when you are finished with them, and they'll be there for Christmas.

This is my new year's gift to you. I hope you find this useful. Let's get organized together in 2019!

 

If you have any questions about this, or if you know anybody that is looking to buy or sell in 2019, I would appreciate the referral. That's how I work --by referral. Have the best of 2019 and I'll talk to you soon.

I'm all for that "Organizing", Sandi Reed have been doing that for 30 years and still NOT organized!  Only joking.  3 weeks ago we found termites in our bathroom flooring, had to rip out part of the floor, then decided to get a new toilet and cabinet, then rather than hiring someone, we did the whole thing ourselves.  Even found that the exhaust vent to the roof was leaking at the roof line, then we had to seal that at the roof.  More wood rot removed.  now looks like we will be finished by the weekend!

my goal this year is to get the kids rooms finally converted to MY house and not their rooms.  I mean they aren't moving home again.

I'm definitely trying to get more organized with the packing of decorations. It does make the setup that much easier for the next year.
