Tip of the Week: Distribute your grocery haul. It can be tempting to quickly shove groceries into the nearest cabinet once you get home from shopping and move on with life. But take care to put items in their designated places. That way, the next time you need to find the rice, you won't have to call a search party or run out to buy an unnecessary extra bag Source: Real Simple, September 2018.

Tip of the week: Boots storage During the winter is the perfect time to take control of your boots. Review each pair to ensure they fit properly and still look great with your wardrobe. Next, think about the best place to store them for ease of use. Is it in your bedroom closet, the closet by the front door, or in the garage? Finally decide what type of shoe stand or holder you'd like to invest in. Pictured here is a boot rack from Amazon, but many times we simply buy "pool noodles" for $1.00 that will work on 2-3 pairs of boots to keep them standing up straight. Affordable Organization LLC is all about saving a dollar while still having function and beauty. Nobody will know that a pool noodle is holding up your precious leather boots, give it a try.

Tip of the week: A lot of my clients have storage units and I get asked to assist with improving the organization within them. My advice is to always label clearly exactly what is inside each bin or box, and to store like items together. This storage unit in East Providence is an example of one that Affordable Organization handled every detail for from boxing, labeling, hiring movers and overseeing the move from point A to point B. Results were a very happy organized client with a small loft in Providence containing only the necessary items with NO the clutter.

Tip of the Week: Observe Oosouji (pictured) In Japan, clearing dirt, clutter and the disorganization from the old year is an integral part of Japanese New Year tradition. Because each year is seen as separate and distinct, the final week of the old year is devoted to cleaning, decluttering and organizing. To observe Oosouji, Japanese homes receive a top-to-bottom cleaning. Business offices are sorted and organized and children clean out school desks. "Removing the dirt from the old year" creates a clean state of mind to welcome the New Year, and invite prosperity in the year to come.

Tip of the week: Labeling can make all the difference in keeping order in a craft room. Best of all, it's simple and inexpensive to do!
Tip of the Week: Create a gift wrapping station in your home that can be shared by everyone. Stock it with tape, gift bags, tissue, gift labels, wrapping paper, ribbon/bows, plus a trash bag. If you have an extra folding table set it up and if room allows keep it up until the last minute. Having a designated spot for wrapping means that your family members can quickly wrap gifts as they are purchased to hide the contents!

Tip of the Week: Present giving is getting harder and harder each year in my opinion.. I advise clients to give experiences rather than physical gifts. Experiences will be remembered and don't take up limited space in our homes and don't add clutter. Think carefully before gifting more "stuff" to someone that seems to have it all.

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. (📷: https://assistantsurvival.wordpress.com)
