Tips for Winter

  • 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.
