I Missed The Party

Vicki, of Two Bags Full, was kind enough to let me sign up for her Grow Your Blog Party and I missed my turn.  I am so sorry to have missed the wonderful opportunity.   I've been quite preoccupied with a seriously ill mother and am on the train this minute to go for what very well might be my last visit with her.

A Very Neat Organization Idea!

I gave our director of marketing a pretty little scarf as a small Christmas gift.  Yesterday she stopped by my office to thank me again (she's so sweet) and gave me the best tip for storing scarves, so I tried it.

I went to the Dollar Store and purchased a set of shower curtain rings and clipped them all onto a heavy plastic coat hanger.  Then I just slipped a scarf through each ring and presto - all my scarves are neatly hung and each are visible.  Because I was storing them all in a drawer in a heap, I even discovered two that I had forgotten all about!

And, since I spent the Sunday after Christmas ruthlessly removing clothes I no longer wear, I have room to hang this in my closet now!

I took three boxes and a huge shopping bag full of clothes that I haven't worn in ages to a thrift shop.  What a great feeling.  I want "stuff" out of this house and I've gotten a very good start.

If you are organizing your household like so many folks do in January, try this tick for storing scarves and let me know how you like it.

Happy 2013!

I hope 2013 brings you health and happiness!  We can all forget the wealth since folks in Washington can't figure out how to behave like intelligent adults....
