Winter wardrobe prep

I know it’s only October, and you don’t want to be reminded of the cold winter days ahead. But they’re coming. Soon we’ll be dressing in layers, wearing wool socks and sweaters, and pulling on winter boots. A bit of winter wardrobe prep can make the transition easier.

Preparation steps:

  1. Wash tank tops, shorts, bathing suites, and summer dresses, before packing them away until next summer.
  2. Evaluate the items you’re packing away to determine if they’re worth keeping
  3. Swap out summer hats, scarves, leggings, footwear, pocketbooks, and jewelry for winter options.
  4. Add fall layering pieces to your wardrobe. This includes turtlenecks, slippers, bathrobes, and warmer Pjs.
  5. Once it gets colder add winter coats, gloves, and boots.

Feel happy while Organizing

I read about a study from Gretchen Rubin’s book Happier at Home that indicated, “interrupting a pleasant experience with something less pleasant can intensify a person’s overall pleasure.” Let’s use this while organizing. While doing something you enjoy, pause that activity to perform an organizing task.

Here are 3 examples:

  1. While watching a favorite tv show, podcast, or YouTuber, pause and organize the surface of your desk.
  2. While baking cookies, pause and organize your pantry.
  3. While chatting with your BBF, pause and organize your dresser.

Plan & Prioritize

What’s new in 2022? I hope this year is off to a great start for you! Are you making plans and initiating changes?
Planning and prioritizing is a great way to organize yourself. A bit of planning goes a long way to improve your workday and time at home.

The simplest way to organize

Organizing tipThe simplest way to organize is to have less. The simplest way to have less is to buy less. The less we have the less we have to organized, maintain and manage.

The gift of time

Organizing tipDid you know, on average, people take 3 times longer to finish a task than they had planned. So, give yourself the gift of time this holiday season. Time to organize. Time to declutter. Time to enjoy life.
