As we rush headlong into Thanksgiving this week, I would love to hear what are you thankful for? Besides pumpkin pie, obviously! :)
I am so grateful for the opportunity to use a talent I have for organizing to help other people. Hopefully these words will also encourage you on your path.
"I’d rather be a failure at something I love than a success at something I hate." – George Burns
"All great changes are preceded by chaos." ~ Deepak Chopra
Just let that thought sink in for a moment.... This quote is a perfect mantra when you are in the midst of getting anything organized. Things will always look like mayhem before you're done. Just push through, knowing that the outcome will be great!
Thanksgiving and Christmas are right around the corner. Today is a great day begin getting organized for the holidays...and those guests!
If you have a space in your home designated as a guest room, try not to let the clutter take over. Organize a guest room and keep it ready for your visitors.
A couple of tips:
-Try to keep the bed clear by not letting it become a storage place for miscellaneous household items. Under-bed storage containers can really help with this!
-Keep a few houseguest essentials in a basket or decorative box, such as extra toiletries, a box of mints, and tissues.
-If you want to go the extra mile, add some candles or magazines to a bedside table.
Maintaining your guest room, or space, will ensure you are ready for any guests you choose to invite!
