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.
Here's what I came up with! Staple remover...... It worked great and my fingers where very happy too.
Happy decorating and hope your thanksgiving and Christmas will be blessed.

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 !
