Weekend Mini-Organizing Challenge: Take Inventory before Holidays


Need some organizing motivation and inspiration, or a gentle nudge? Subscribe to my blog to receive mini-organizing challenges several weekends a month. They will be automatically emailed to you so you won’t have to remember to visit the blog.

Mini-organizing challenges are doable and will focus on de-cluttering a tiny area of your home.  If the weekend challenge “speaks” to you, then set your timer for 30 minutes and start organizing/de-cluttering. Stop when the timer goes off and enjoy the rest of your weekend knowing that you accomplished something!  Of course you may continue organizing if you have gained the momentum you were looking for.

Mini Challenge: Take Inventory 

While organizing with client’s, we commonly find gifts they have purchased well in advance for their friends or family.  I don’t purchase gifts more than a month or so before an occasion because my memory has been known to fail me!

This weekend is the perfect time to FIND and inventory gifts purchased ahead of time.  (If you can’t find the gifts, and live near Madison, WI, call me:  608-575-7467:)  Round them up, place them in one area of your home and create a list of items purchased and for whom.  It’s also a terrific time to look for cards, tags, tape, gift bags and wrapping paper previously purchased or have left over from past holidays.

Imagine all the money you will save when you “shop at home!”
