How To Organize Your Cords and Cables

How To Organize Your Cords and Cables

In today’s digital age, we have so many cords. We have headphones, charging cords and connector cables.  It is so easy for them to become a big, jumbled mess. What can you do to keep the chaos to a minimum?

Label the Cables

How To Make A 72 Hour Emergency Kit

How To Make A 72 Hour Emergency Kit

September is National Emergency Preparedness month.  One of the items that the emergency preparedness experts suggest you have is a 72 Hour Kit. FEMA recommends that each household puts together a disaster supply kit that “is simply a collection of basic items your household may need in the event of an emergency.”

A 72 Hour Kit is enough food, water and supplies to last your family for 3 days in the case of an emergency.  We aren’t talking about being a “prepper” but having just enough of the basic essentials to get you through until the electricity comes back on or someone can reach your home to evacuate you.

Why Fall Is A Great Time to Get Organized

Why Fall Is A Great Time to Get Organized

January and the beginning of summer are usually the times of year when people declare “I am going to get organized.” But this isn’t always the best time for organizing. In January you spend a lot of your brain space trying to just write the new year on your checks. In the summer, despite your good intentions, you really just want to take the kids to the pool and read the latest juicy novel. 

In the Fall, vacations are over, the kids are back in school and you are probably ready for the cooler weather. Fall is the perfect time to declutter and organize your house so you can enjoy it more when you are shut in over the cold winter months.

You want to get organized, but maybe you are a real do-it-yourselfer or perhaps you aren't ready to have someone like a professional organizer come into your house to help you. The problem is you just don't know where to start. Often that's the most common reason organizing projects don't begin. People are just too overwhelmed to figure out where the starting line is.
