Organizing | Controlling Your Paper Chaos

Organizing | Controlling Your Paper Chaos

Recently a friend told me that her mail and school papers had gotten out of control. She asked for suggestions to help her get control again. My suggestion to her was to create a command center.

Set up your command center in a centralized location such as your kitchen. You will need four basic things:

- a basket or bin to act as a temporary holding spot for mail and papers

- an action file

- a trash can, and

- shredder.

Many people also add a family calendar to their command center to help keep everything one track.

Keeping Your Digital Pictures Safe

Keeping Your Digital Pictures Safe

Last week I was touching base with a client to see how her summer was going and she had a horror story to tell me. During a quick 20-minute trip to take her daughter to camp, their home was broken into. Among the things the thieves took was their computer. The most precious and heartwrenching loss of all was the loss of their pictures and videos from the last 4-5 months that had not yet been backed up. Those can never be retrieved or recreated.
 

What can you do to preserve your precious memories, specifically those digital pictures? A couple of quick and easy steps can ease your mind and I advocate multiple backup systems. You can never be too careful with your pictures.

What is Your Legacy?

What is Your Legacy?

I have to admit that I don’t often think about what my legacy will be. Let’s face it, I’m relatively young and it seems like that legacy thing is so far off. But in reality every day I am creating and developing the gifts that I will leave my children and the world. In my family we try not to put so much emphasis on the stuff as we do the memories and the family history.

However in some families, the stuff is the legacy and I’m not talking about antiques and heirlooms. I have so many people talk to me about their homes like this, “My house is packed the rafters with three generations of stuff – mine, my parents AND my grandparents.” This statement makes me sad in so many ways. First I’m sure the grandparents wouldn’t want their grandchildren living in a memorial pile of their stuff. Also the guilt and pressure of the child feels as having to be the steward of the stuff that they generally don’t really want.

These Boots Were Made For Walking

These Boots Were Made For Walking

OK, I know it’s not exactly boot weather right now (Hello, flip flops!!!), but it is the perfect time of year to make sure your boots will be ready for walking in the fall.

Tall boots have a habit of falling over and if you don’t wear them often you run the risk of getting creases.  You can buy specially made boot shapers that range in price from $5 to $15.  Yikes! If you are boot lover, that can get pricey!
