GIVING BACK



Community Shred - We'll be hosting two document shredding events in 2015.  One on Saturday, April 25th from 1-3pm and one in November - this event is free.  We just ask that everyone bring a canned good to donate to a local food bank.

Reach for the Stars Scholarship Program - We'll be awarding 2 deserving seniors a $750 scholarship again this year - just email us and we'll send you information and an application.  Deadline is April 15th.

Community Outreach - For every settlement we had in 2014, we made a donation to a local charity.  We donated over $1,800!  We look forward to exceeding that amount in 2015.

GETTING ORGANIZED

ORGANIZE YOUR HOME ~ ORGANIZE YOUR LIFE

With the start of a new year, comes a natural desire for a fresh start.  Home is where the heart is, so it’s the first place to start creating your ideal environment.  Once you establish order in your home, you’ll find it will naturally carry over into the rest of your life.  Here's a plan to get you started:

¨ Less is More ~ Each day this week, fill one bag of items to be donated to your favorite charity, your local Goodwill, or the Salvation Army. It may seem difficult to fill seven bags in one week, but try focusing on a specific category each day. For example, fill a bag with clothes on Monday, shoes on Tuesday, kitchen items on Wednesday, and so on.

¨ Make it a Family Day  ~ An awesome way to speed up organizing your home is to enlist the help of your kids. Kids of almost all ages can participate with chores appropriate to their skills.  A smaller child might fill a donation bag with old toys that they no longer use, while older children can rearrange bathroom shelves. A fun way to get them to participate (and maybe even volunteer) is to list chores on small slips of  paper and have each child draw two or three slips out of a hat.

¨ Take Along a Carry-On ~ The easiest way to put things back where they belong is to grab something in the room where you are that  belongs in the room where you’re headed. For example, if you’re getting up from watching television in the living room, take a quick look around and pick up something that belongs in the bathroom and take it there. When you’re in the bathroom, look for something that belongs in the kitchen or living room, and take it with you on your way back. You’ll be surprised at how quickly you can reduce messes on a regular basis this way, and it takes no extra time at all.

¨ 15 Minutes a Day to A Happier Home ~ Organizing your home requires regular effort, but you don’t have to wait until the end of every week when things have piled up. Instead, commit to organizing your home in just 15 minutes every day. Assign each family member a specific room to focus on during that time. It will amaze you how quickly the whole house can be transformed with your entire family engaged.
