Is fall your favorite season?  It’s mine. I enjoy the beautiful colors of the season, the cool weather, and the desire to make a steaming pot of soup.  Fall is also a time when I prepare for the cold winter months ahead.  Two organizing projects that help me do that are my seasonal wardrobe swap and my garage clean out.

Fall Organizing Projects


My seasonal wardrobe swap happens four times a year, because I have a tiny closet, and my entire wardrobe can’t be available all at once.  Swapping out the lightweight summer tops, pants, dresses, sweaters, and skirts with the warmer versions happens in mid-September when the temperatures start dipping.  A second swap happens at the end of October when I pull out winter footwear, pajamas, coats, and accessories.  This two step approach helps me to be prepared for the yo-yo temperature changes that are typical in New England.  The reverse process happens in the springtime.

Ask yourself these questions when doing your seasonal wardrobe swap.  Evaluating the clothing that is being taken out and put away is a great way to stay organized.


A second fall organizing project is preparing the garage for the winter so the vehicles can fit inside. For me, the garage clean out doesn’t take as long as the closet, but that may not be the case for you.  Here are some helpful guidelines when tackling the garage.

If you’d like more assistance or a personal helper call me for a complimentary consultation at (508) 699-6652 or email me.  I’d be happy to help you.

Recycle Resource

Finding new ways to recycle, for myself and my clients, makes me happy.  Everyone is more motivated to get rid of something when they know it is going to someone who is truly in need.

Currently, I’m in the market for a new pair of eye glasses, and was happy to find out that Lens Crafters recycles eye glasses to individuals in need, world wide.  They accept eye-ware that is in good condition, and do their best to match the prescription to someone in need through their OneSight program.  They even provide you with a donation receipt.
If you have eye-ware that you’d like to recycle, Lens Crafters has two locations in North Attleboro:
1.  LensCrafters
Emerald Square Mall
999 South Washington St., #321

North Attleboro, MA 02760

2.  LensCrafters
