From our family to yours, we wish you lots of warmth, light, love, peace, and joy this Hanukkah season!

December 6, 2018

Tip of the Week:

Tis the season to give, so while you are unpacking your holiday décor review your stash carefully. If you haven't utilized certain décor in years and they aren't sentimental, let them go! Donate to a local charity where they can be given to others who will enjoy them. Free yourself from unnecessary clutter and pass on good items to the needy to bring them joy during the holidays.

Tip of the Week:
Watertight bins are a great way to safely store your items in a damp cool space like a basement. They are sold on Amazon or in select stores like The Container Store or Lowes. I always recommend getting clear and labeling well.

READ THIS, great opportunity to help!

Remember all those Beanie Babies and stuffed animals your kids collected? Now there's a great way to put them to use. Collette Cares is partnering with Plumpy'Nut peanut butter to send soft plush toys to babies in Sierra Leone. Read more below from the Plumpy'Nut founder, and if you have stuffed animals to donate, please contact me. I will need to bring them in by Nov. 25.

"When I was in Sierra Leone a few weeks ago, a nurse in the malnutrition ward told me something unexpected. She said, we are so grateful for the Plumpy’Nut you have given us, but we were wondering if we could ask for one more thing. There is one little girl who has a stuffed animal, and all the other kids really wish that they had one too – something to hold onto, something to bring them love while they are so sick.

This is a photo I have looked at a million times. It is posted right next to the conveyor belts where we make the Plumpy’Nut boxes. It’s there because every time a box passes by, this ... See more

Holiday shopping has begun for some, and others will soon follow. Give this article a quick read before you purchase gifts, think about giving experiences instead.

I read an article by a mom who was asking people NOT to buy her kids TOYS for Christmas... she expressed the same sentiments I have from years past with London... Let's see if anyone else has this happen...
.
- Kid wants toy for Christmas and talks about it all the time.
- Kid opens toy for Christmas and immediately rips it open and starts to put it together & play.
- 2 days later kid is asking for new app on their iPad, and you suggest they go play with that awesome toy they wanted so bad... They say they don't feel like it.
- One week later, toy is shoved in the back of their closet, never to be seen again... UNTIL you do a pre-Christmas clean out the following year when said toy is then donated because the child expresses that she no longer likes it. 😕
.
AH, it kills me a little every time!!!
.
This year, we are making a Christmas list filled with EXPERIENCES, not toys.

It's Fall Purging Time!

If you live in the Northeast it's almost time for the inevitable wardrobe switch to your fall/winter clothing. While you are working on your "wardrobe switch", evaluate the clothing you are storing. If you didn't wear them during the season, ask yourself why? If they are out of style, no longer fit, or you just don't like them pass them on or try to sell them. Keep only the items that you love and make you feel good, release the rest!

Tip of the Week: Organizing Success

It’s all in the labeling! If you plan on organizing a space in your home and you want it to stay that way...get a label maker. Labeling spaces naturally brings order to a space and leaves no excuse as to where something belongs when you are done using it.

Tip of the Week: Pack Like a Pro

Ziplock clear bags make packing for trips quick and easy. The next time you or a family member is traveling pickup a box of gallon sized ziplock bags and a sharpie. Pack like items (socks, underwear, athletic wear, and pajamas into the bags and label them. Don't forget to pack your liquids in them as well, if they leak it will hopefully will prevent spillage into your luggage. This method will not save space and unpacking time when you arrive at your destination.

Bonus tip: Pack 1-2 extra large pillow sized ziplocks for dirty clothing.
