Top 3 Pre-Holiday Organizing Tips

  1. Start Now! The best place to start is a monumental de-cluttering of the whole house. This can take months for families with houses. A good rule of thumb is to get rid of anything you have not used in a year with the exception of keepsakes. I find satisfaction in filling a truck or SUV up and take it away at the end of each day of the organizing project. Donate to your favorite charities, schedule a donation truck or junk hauling company to pick everything up at once.
  2. Make a home for everything you own. If you do not have a place where something goes when not in use, then you need to choose a place to become the home. You may need to purchase furniture, shelving, drawers, plastic bins, and put everything you are keeping away.
  3. The final step is to organize all keeps and label when necessary. Put like items together and sort. Tip: If you find you still do not have enough space for your keeps then you may need to let go of more items. Donating, selling and giving to friends & family helps.
