Tips for Winter 2018

You may have some new holiday items and toys. It might be new cookware, books, clothes, or electronic gadgets. Be sure all of these new items have a logical “home”—a place that they belong. Consider getting rid of something similar that you no longer need or enjoy.

Consider organizing and deep cleaning your home on a zone plan. Divide your home into 10 zones and each month (except July and December) tackle that zone. This would also be a good time to do a room inventory.

This is also a great time to donate any unwanted holiday decorations. Give away what you no longer need or love and let others enjoy them. Items that need fixing are clutter. If a lamp is broken or a printer has stopped working, give yourself a firm deadline to fix it or donate it.
