Tuesday's Organizing Tip: Have a Plan

September is National Preparedness Month so all this month we'll be talking about ways to be better prepared, both for emergencies and your every day life. Join the conversation!

When you child comes home from school, does she know where her backpack and lunch box live?  These items should have a regular landing zone.  It could be a hook next to the child’s desk in her room or in a cubby by the entry door.  Having a consistent place to put these items will make them easier to find and cause fewer headaches during that mad dash out the door in the morning.

Tuesday's Organizing Tip: Batteries

Tuesday 's Organizing Tip: Gather all of your batteries into one place. I use a small plastic tub in my laundry room. And please don’t keep batteries in your junk drawer.

Tuesday's Organizing Tip: Simplify Social Media

Simplify your social media! How do you decide who to follow on Facebook or Twitter?

Before you follow or accept that friend request, check out the posts that the business/person/group has made. Are they informative, helpful, or entertaining? If not, don't follow them or go back and unfollow them. Their posts will just be visual clutter on your newsfeed or Twitter feed.
