The Spirit of Giving

by weeklyorganizingtips

Happy holidays to your and yours! This is a wonderful time of year. People seem to be in a better mood overall, you get to see friends and family that you might not get to see everyday and you get to give and receive gifts.

I am lucky enough to be in the business of giving. When I work with clients I always encourage them to take a long hard look at the items in their home and to donate items they no longer use. I am always pleasantly surprised at how good people feel giving away items they no longer need or use.

I encourage you over the next week to do a bit of evaluating in your own home. Take an hour to go through your closet or your children’s toys and make a pile to donate to your local Goodwill, Salvation Army, women’s shelter or even consignment shop.

You will feel great about giving, but you will also feel great to have more space in your home, increased functionality in your space and your stress level will decrease the next time you go to your closet to search for something.

Get in the spirit of giving and see the immediate benefits in your life!

Happy Holidays and as always… Happy Organizing!
