Hi there! 


It's hard to believe that the summer is over and it's time to think about the holidays again. Now, before the craziness begins, is the time to get all of those holiday decorations in order.


To help you along your way to organized bliss, we've written and produced a new video that might just give you some new insights on storing your festive gear. Our Facebook fan page will also feature tips throughout the month, so be sure to become our fan today! For fun ideas on organizing, including do-it-yourself and green projects, visit our blog anytime.


We've heard from many of you who would like to contribute to our shoe drive. To make arrangements for a pickup, please email us. We know how much you love when we offer a good home organizing discount, so we've done it again. You can find details below or just go ahead and schedule your urban organizing session online now.    


Reduce Reuse Recycle   

4 Do-It-Yourself Storage Solutions 


  1.  Use wine boxes to store ornaments.  These specialty boxes are ultra sturdy and available for free from your local liquor store, grocery store, or wine bar. They have separate compartments which will help to protect fragile items. Be sure to wrap everything in tissue paper first!    
  2. Wrap strings of lights around cardboard. Picture
    Cut a piece of cardboard (approx. 12x8 in). Cut a 1-in slit in the top and bottom. Start by inserting one end of the cord in the top slit. Wind the cord around the cardboard, placing the other end in the bottom slit. Store in a shoe box.    
  3. Reuse original packaging.  Whenever possible, keep the packaging that your ornaments and decorations came in. It is uniquely qualified to protect that particularly shaped item.  
  4. Create your own ribbon storage box. Picture
    Stack your ribbon spools vertically next to each other in a shoe box close to the edge. With a hole punch, make a hole in front of each ribbon and pull each through. Put scissors and tape on the other side of the box. Replace the lid and store with your wrapping materials.   



Tips for Storing Halloween Costumes



  • Before you store away your Halloween costumes, you'll want to remove any spots or stains. Clean using manufacturers directions or hand wash with mild soap.
  • To avoid molding, allow your costume and accessories to dry completely before storing them away.
  • Hang costumes in a fabric garment bag to avoid wrinkling. Store this in an extra closet rather than in your everyday clothing closet. If this is not possible, fold the costume neatly and place in a plastic tub.
  • Brush through wigs to remove any tangles. Store wigs individually in a shoe box or gallon sized plastic baggie.
  • Stuff your hats with tissue paper to retain their shape and place in a hat box.
  • Save unused costume makeup in a plastic baggie. This seal will help it to retain its moisture so you can use it again next year. 
  • Store everything away in an air-tight plastic tub. Clearly mark the tub with a label indicating "Halloween Costumes".
