This week's quick tip is a reminder that it is now time to put away the summer clothes and get out the fall/winter wardrobes.
If you want to free yourself from this time-consuming ritual, read on.
For young children who are still growing, there's no escaping the need to go through their clothes seasonally. Now is the time to:
But for adults and teens, consider switching to a year-round closet.
Years ago, I used to perform the semi-annual Big Closet Switch and each time it was a messy, agonizing, days-long chore.
5/28/2020 UPDATE: Sadly, Wunderlist was bought by Microsoft and is now defunct. My new to-do list app of choice is the fabulous TickTick (Note: This is an affiliate referral link.).
Cons: The free version is very limited, so unless your to-do-listing is very basic, you'll need the paid version.
Pros: The straightforward layout is similar to my beloved Wunderlist plus it is feature-rich with smart lists, list sharing, in-app communication, calendar integration, and even a built-in Pomodoro timer so you can learn to be super productive!
I’m so excited to share this week’s tip with you. It’s my favorite app ever – the one I can’t live without: Wunderlist!
This is the app that does all the work of keeping me organized and on task. I honestly can't remember what I did before I had Wunderlist. I guess I just wrote stuff down on paper -- ugh, how archaic!
Now I keep every kind of list imaginable on it: a basic To Do list, packing lists, a list of books I've read, grocery lists, a list of things I want to buy (so I don't impulse shop), and more. (As a child, didn't you love the story of The List in Frog and Toad Together?)
My recent favorite is my Recurring list. These are things that I have to do on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis Wunderlist reminds me to do them, so now I can't "forget" to practice piano or wash the doormats.
Another excellent feature is the ability to share lists with others. This is great for collaborating on projects and for keeping your kids on track.
Best of all, the lists sync between my laptop, iPad, and Android phone, so I'm never without Wunderlist.
Oh, yeah, and did I mention it's free?
Wondering what to do with those tattered, torn, or stained t-shirts, pants, towels, sheets, etc. that aren't good enough to donate for resale?
Bring them to an H&M store and they'll recycle them for you. Plus you'll get a coupon good for a discount off your purchase. Your house gets decluttered, your stuff doesn't end up in a landfill, and you get a coupon to buy some fun new fashions! How cool is that?
