Towels: Follow the “pillow rule.” Two towels per person, per body. In other words, if your guest room accommodates two people, all you need are four towels, four hand towels and four washcloths! No more, no less.
If you’re away for the summer, it’s imperative that your home be organized and that you do everything on this checklist, especially in hurricane-prone locations.
In an attempt to get — and stay — organized, we set impossible goals and resolve to accomplish these goals in too short a period of time. We resolve to lose weight, to go to the gym every day, to stop procrastinating and, above all else, to get organized. Just the thought of making these resolutions can be overwhelming; and sometimes the pressure to succeed is enough to make us forget what we resolved to do in the first place.
The National Association of Professional Organizers has designated January as Get Organized Month. The month-long event is dedicated to raising public awareness of the benefits of getting organized by hiring a professional organizer.
