Scarf over load

How many of you have several different scarf's ?  I do and I have to say I didn't wear them very often. Mainly because they where neatly folded up in the bottom of a drawer. I found a way to keep them neat, organized and easy to get to. 
I bought towel hooks, they are bigger so you can put several scarf 's on a hook. I have a few hooks so I can have the scarves organized. You can organzie by color or weight ( warm weather cold weather),or style. That is up to you an what fits your needs best.
You can place the hooks on the wall as decoration if you like to see your scarfs. You can place the hooks in your closet on the inside of the door or just in side the door on the wall. What works best for you is what will keep the scarfs organized..

SHARED SPACES II ( home office )

I share a desk at home with my husband. No big deal right ? Well we been married a while an I don't like to share my stuff . I've always looked at my desk as my space to do my thing ,create those big ideas,write that book about raising a family, pen a card or letter. May be crafts,well may be not so much crafts..I take up what ever space I need depending on the project at hand even the man space out in the garage. He shares his things well.  Good man !!
Oh and those all important bills need paid each month, work on the computer, long with sorting that mail,writing this blog. You get the idea. 
He on the other hand has a more basic use for the desk here at home,use the lap top which is mine when needed and any unexpected siting at a desk when he is away from his office.. 
Here is what it did to keep it the way I liked it an let my husband in to my space. You got it !
 I shared my things and no longer referred to them as mine but ours. I gave him space to put his reading glasses. 

An use of all the fun stuff on the desk.  He has to look at the way I decorate the space but he is not as attached so that's no big deal. Some times getting organized is a mind set. This sharing the desk worked because we both like to things back in there place. For the most part..

SHARED SPACES

If you work in a shared space at work you need to think of the others you share the space with.
Here are some tips that might help keep the peace. If you bring some thing in to the space for all to share, let others know it is for that sharing with every one. If what you bring in is not really needed or does not seem to be getting used, ask the others if they are using it or if it's just taking up space? If it's the later take it home or pass it on to some one who wants it or get rid of it. You don't want things to pile up. So it's important not to bring In things from home just to get them out of your house. Most likely no one else will clean out the space you share because you are rhe one that brought the stuff in an you should be the one to clean it out. 
If you bring things in just for your use keep in some kind of container appropriate for the space.keep it nearer to you place, that way it's not out in the open and it is also not in the way. Leaving the common area free for others to use..

The Christmas list

The list for me works best on paper !
 But it can be on your phone or any other form of reminder you use. 
The other day my husband and made four trips around the block from one store to home to the other store. Had we made a list or at least had a planed to go from store to store we would have made better use of our time.. I have to say we where blessed and hit a lot of good deals. 
That made up for all back and forth. 
Here to making a list and checking it twice!! Merry Christmas.

Christmas decorating early (if you are not a retail store) and thumb tacks !!!

In my hurry to get christmas decorations up this year be for traveling and company comeing in and a whole lot more that's going on in my life right now, thumb tacks where used to hold things in place.
Trouble was getting them off the board they come on or out if they needed moved for any reason.
So off to my desk ( that's where I keep all my suff ) to find the a solution to get these thumb tacks out and finish getting every thing up.

Giving thanks

As thanksgiving draws closer we all want to be able to give thanks for some thing!  Well how about giving thanks for all the stuff you have. And how about being able to find all that stuff when you need it. 
Open any closet, drawer, or space and take every out of the space. 
Now lay out all the stuff you have taken out.
remember what you got it for and why.
Here is where organization comes in to this exercise ( not the toe touching exercise's) 
If you can't think what the item is for or why you need to keep it, other than just because you may need it some day. It may be time to pass it on to some one else, or even get rid of it all together. 
When you have done that step with each item in your pile. You should be left with things you are glad you have for one reson or another. Give thanks!!
Now arrange the items left back where you got it out of ! 
This has endless way to share as to how you can put things back in the space, so I'll leave that up to you. If you have any great ideas drop me a line on my blog. 
Happy thanksgiving !
