xmas-2016

Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving sharing it with friends and family!
Now we are officially in Holiday mode and probably thinking about how am I going to get everything done and still have time to socialize with friends and family.

Let me help you with some tips to get organized for the holidays.
Here are some to start doing right now.

1- Now is the time to get rid of all of the thanksgiving decorations that you did not use this year and know that you will never use again.
2- Take the time to buy the proper storage to store the decorations that you will like to continue to use and label properly.
3- Start bringing out all of your Christmas decorations and decide what you will use this year and what you no longer desire.
4- Donate the ones you no longer desire, you will make someone’s Christmas special !
5-Buy the appropriate storage for the rest of the decorations that you will store. Holiday decorations organizers are seasonal and hard to find after the holidays.

This is a good starting point, will be sending more tips out to help you stay organized!

How to get the Fluff back in your Towels!!

towels

Here is a great way to get your beach towels and regular towels back into shape. Have you noticed that sometimes no matter how frequently you wash your towels they still have a mildew smell that you cannot get rid of or they are just no longer fluffy. Here is your solution, rinse your towels in vinegar. I have been doing this all summer long and my towels smell and feel amazing. Just add 1 cup of vinegar where you would normally pour your fabric softener and voila.
Enjoy your fluffy towels!

As always please reach out if you have any questions.
I have many surprises coming very soon ☺

Make Life Easier … Its just a download away!!!

app-images

These are some of my favorite apps that make my life much easier and helps me stay organized.

1- Bright Nest – this app is great for home organization and cleaning schedules. You can make To-Do lists and keep track of what needs to be serviced. This is a life saver for homeowners and it is free.
2- Khan Academy – this app is amazing!!!!! It teaches you anything and everything that you want to learn. If you are like me that sometimes I have no idea what is going on in my daughter’s math class, this app is for you. It is fantastic for kids and helps parents help their children with their school work.
3- Gathered Table- organizing is my forte but the kitchen is not. ☺
You tell them your dietary needs and any food allergies that you have and they email you a personalized menu with a shopping list weekly. You can also collect, organize and share recipes.

Enjoy your weekly tips and let me know how you like them.

As always please reach out if you have any questions.
I have many surprises coming very soon ☺

Back To School

bts-2016

I cannot believe it is time to go back to school !

With September here it signals the beginning of getting back to reality and the “grind “ after enjoying the summer months. It is time to get the kids ready for a succesful school year and getting yourself organized to end the year smoothly. Here are some tips to help you achieve this.

1- Re-establish Routines:
– Do all of your prep work on Sunday nights. Pick 5 outfits plus an extra one just in case it is needed for the week. This will save you a lot time and hassles in the mornings.
– Make sure that all sports gear is packed and ready to go and that all uniforms are clean and easily available.
– Have a family calendar in a visible place to keep track of all appointments and activities.
– Schedule all school pick ups needed for the week.
– Schedule all babysitting ahead of time.
– Plan your meals for the week

2- Designante a Work Zone:
– Create a work area for you and your children. Create a command center for yourself. This is where you will keep all incoming and outgoing paper, mail, your computer and and office supplies needed. For the children you want to create a very open and clutter free area where they can sit and do their homework and will not be distracted easily.

3- Check all of your Electronic Devices:
– Make sure that all computers are up and running. If they need a little tune up make sure to take them in now to have them up and running for the school year. Check phones and tablets, delete apps no longer used, old photos and files to create more memory space.
A good app to use to store images and files that you would like to keep is dropbox.

Happy organizing and have a great school year!
