I hope you are all staying healthy and safe during the winter months during the pandemic and we will ALL get through this together! I know many of your lives have changed and your schedules have been all over the board. Now that we are in December, some of your work and home schedules have either slowed down or are very busy. During these crazy times, I would like to give you some fun/interesting and productive organizing projects for you to do!
- If there is a room in your home that you love but it needs some organizing, turn on some fun music and work on how to make it better! Are there items that go in another part of the home? Or too much paperwork in your space that you need to file, recycle or take action on? Or add some type of decor items that makes you feel good and have a good vibe to it!
- If you love to cook and/or bake, check out the condition of your cooking items and see if you need to replace them. Now is a great time to take stock of what you would like to be replaced, and add it to your holiday wish list for your family and friends. There are many great deals at stores and online for new kitchen items and it would be fun to have new items in your kitchen when you cook during the holidays!
- We are going into a new year and now is the time to get rid of your bad habits so take a new fresh look on your personal life and your work life! That may be working on getting rid of clothes that don’t match your age, or go through your linen closet and get rid of torn, stained towels and sheets, or donate/throw away toys that your kids don’t play with anymore or have outgrown. There are items here that I mentioned that may not need to be replaced but it will make room in that space for the items that do work for you and it will stay organized!
- If you want your donations to go to a specific charity, there are several locations where they need your items directly. There are local PADS facilities that are always looking for coats, winter gear, socks etc. If you have new/left over construction materials, Habitat for Humanity facilities will take several items. And if have food in your pantry that you no longer want/can’t eat anymore etc. food pantries in your area are always looking for help to feed families.
These are just some ideas that may be easier for you to work on and could be fun to do with your family during the holidays if you are looking for things to do if you have extra time during this month. I always tell people organizing and making a space functional so you love your area should be fun to do and something you would want to work on right away! If you have any questions or would like additional help on how to achieve these tasks, please let me know and I would be happy to help you! Thank you and I wish you all a safe and healthy holiday season with your family and friends!
