Maria’s MiniOrganizing ChallengesWith all of our TO DOs, it’s easy to get overwhelmed. But how about it we make it as easy-as-pie for you? Here are 5 challenges YOU CAN accomplish this week.P.S. If you like these easy challenges, email us and let us know.This Week’s Easy-As-Pie Challenges:Week of December 8thWith all the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, being organized is more necessary than ever! This week’s mini-challenges will help ensure nothing is left forgotten.1) Make an out-of-town gift listMake a list of gifts that need to be shipped. To ensure they arrive by Christmas AND to ensure you’re not paying enormous overnight shipping fees, the USPS recommends mailing domestic items no later than December 14, and international items even earlier!2) Wrap as you goSpeaking of gifts, don't leave wrapping until the final moment. Wrap your gifts as you buy them, this will save you tons of time in the long run. Be sure to label them with To/From tags or mark the name of the wrapped item on the bottom of the package in pencil.3) Finalize holiday plansDo you know where you're spending the holidays? Are you hosting, or are you a guest? Will there be several parties to attend or only one? Do you need to bring gifts, a side dish, or any other items? Write everything down and be sure to keep your family in the loop for holiday fun.4) Pull out the linens and dinnerware...earlyDon’t wait until the last minute to discover the silverware needs to be polished, or the linens you have are stained or need ironing. Gather everything you need for your holiday dinner now and inspect it. If anything needs to be prepped, or repaired, or replaced, you can do so now...before the big day.5) Make a gift mapDon’t be left wondering where you hid a gift. Try hiding gifts all in one place, but if you must scatter them, be sure you keep a gift map telling you the name of the gift and exactly where it’s located in your house. Keep this list on your computer (password protected) or in a locked box.
