This evening activity will bring brighter mornings.


Start each month with a clean slate.

-New calendar for important dates (pin upcoming invitations nearby)
-File keepsake art and make room for new treasures
-Collect + print quick, healthy dinner ideas


Have a donate basket in your closet.

Anytime you try on something and it doesn't pass the test—it's ill-fitting or you're simply tired of the outfit—say "Goodbye!" If it's in top condition go ahead and donate. If it's stained and/or torn recycle or put in the trash. Don't keep waiting for "someday" to come.  


Also known as the Banker Box.

Have a dedicated space for filing: bills, tax paperwork, kid's artwork, keepsakes, school paperwork, and medical. When these items come in, you can review them daily and decide to FILE or TOSS. Paperwork can turn into Gremlins, they multiply quickly!


Make washing the dishes more enjoyable.

-Toss those old sponges
-Incorporate a tray or cake stand to elevate your sink space
-Use soap and countertop sprays in seasonal accents.
