Post-Christmas Pick-Up

Post-Christmas Pick-Up - Suggestions to make cleaning up after Christmas a little easier

Christmas has come and gone, and we've reached my least favorite part of the season: the post-Christmas pick-up.

You know the feeling. Decorating was fun because it made the house so festive and cozy. The tree looked so good with all of those lovely packages beneath them. There was an air of anticipation and excitement.

That's all over now. It's time to clean up and figure out where stuff goes.

Because I've Always Done It That Way

Because I've Always Done It That Way - Reasons we don't find new ways to do things

I'm having a hard time this holiday season because I can't do things the way I've always done them.

The hubby and I moved from Oklahoma to northern Indiana in August, so this is our first Christmas in a new place. After spending the last 11 Christmases in the same house, I'm finding it hard to adjust to a new way of "doing Christmas." Though it's not JUST because we're in a different house.

The difficulty is compounded by the fact that we're in an apartment with a lot less space and stricter rules.

4 Tips for Making Laundry Less Agitating

4 Tips for Making Laundry Less Agitating - You can make laundry easier even if you don't like doing it.

I have a confession to make. I like doing laundry.

I'll wait while you pick yourself up off the floor.

I'm serious, though. I actually enjoy the process of getting everything washed and put away where it goes. As someone who enjoys the whole organizing process, laundry gives me a chance to repeatedly start and finish an organizing project. It puts me in a zen state.

But even if you don't have the same warm-fuzzies about washing your clothes, there are still ways to make it less of a chore.

Paper Planners Making a Comeback

Paper Planners Making a Comeback

Paper planners are making a comeback. Or maybe they never left, and they're just now popping back up to the forefront for me. I'm actually not really sure. What I do know is that I've heard more people talking about planners, and it seems like I've seen more varieties at the store than I remember before.

And don't even get me started on the Facebook ads. Who knew that you could be targeted for so many kinds of specialized paper planners because you took two minutes to look at one online?!

The thing about the paper planner craze, though, is that I myself am buying back in.
