Little Touches Really Do Count!

       

Big ideas for 4th of July celebrations are pretty easy to find. However, lots of little things can make your party guest less-than-comfortable and if you are prepared for the expected little things, your guest will be able to fully enjoy the celebration. Consider these ideas from Real Simple magazine…..

No mosquitoes invited: Don’t forget the bug repellent! You can purchase bug spray wipes and position baskets of them in places throughout the party space so your guests can easily help themselves.

Cool and collected: Hopefully we will have beautiful sunny weather for the 4th but it could be hot and humid as well. Set out a bowl of hand-held fans (accordion or raffia) and your guests can help themselves. Or, buy inexpensive washcloths, roll and secure with a rubber band and toss into a cooler of ice for guests to grab. Isn’t that a great idea!

What little things do you do to make sure your guests are happy?

Being a professional organizer is like…..

     ….being a personal trainer – seriously!  Here are a few reasons why I think so:

    1.  Most folks understand what needs to be done to get their closets organized, kitchens de-cluttered, and garages reclaimed – they just can’t get these things done on their own.
     2.  When you need help reaching your goals, you might consider hiring a professional – personal trainer, interior decorator, or personal organizer.   These folks are trained to get to the heart of the problem and give you real solutions.
     3.  A professional organizer will help motivate you, give you the best advice on how to arrange and organize your space, and help you determine the best way to reach your goals.
    4.  Of course, organizing can be done in a day – sure sometime you may need a maintenance “workout” but usually you can reach your goals within a few sessions.
     5.  A Professional Organizer has your best interest at heart.  We want you to be successful and are armed with information and suggestions.  We evaluate your situation, create a plan and will the there to help you every step of the way.

We are all good at something.  Don’t look at your clutter as a failure but more as a temporary situation that can be fixed with the right support and resources.  Have an organized day!

Land of Lost Dreams…

Household de-cluttering is a bit like hanging out with all of your past ambitions and hope.  Yes, you always intended to refinish that sweet shelf you bought on the way to the beach, the unfinished craft project (knitting anyone?  Can’t do it – done trying) and the home gym was a good idea too-NOT!  Some of the objects you need to get rid of were just not meant to be.  Give yourself a break – think about all of the amazing things you have accomplished!

Big Smiles!
