Quick Ideas for an Organized Life … or Where the Heck Did I Put It?

The parking lots at the stores a week AFTER Christmas were packed. All I wanted to do was to buy a small gift as a thank you and I found myself going round and round the lot looking for a place to park. I was shocked to see so many people shopping already, so soon after the Christmas holiday and wondered what the draw to shopping was that people were back in the stores so quickly. After all, it wasn’t Black Friday! Before I ventured out, I should have looked up the statistics on after holiday shopping where 47% of consumers said they’d be shopping in the week between Christmas and New Year’s Day!

It did make me feel hopeful that a positive shift is happening in our shaky economy; for individuals as well as the nation. People spent more this Christmas than they have in years. In fact, several million more than in pre-recession times.

With that in mind, I know that this year will be a great year to make some changes. Whether that is to organize things in your home or garage, replace old, tired out stuff, tackle delayed maintenance or simply perk things up, I can see where we Americans are wanting to enjoy our holidays, as well as our homes!
