|A Mid-Year’s Resolution|
| Well, we are now officially over halfway through the year. How’s it going so far? The end of summer and the beginning of fall is the perfect time to take a quick look back. If you’ve stuck with your resolutions/goals/new habits, great job!! Keep it up! If you’ve slacked a little bit and haven’t quite stuck to what you wanted, then I have the perfect solution:|
Create a Mid-Years Resolution
Whether that means picking up again what you started at the beginning of the year or trying something completely new, it’s still the new year! You haven’t missed it and you haven’t wasted another year. Buckle down, get serious about your commitment (whatever that may be) and finish strong through the rest of this year. You only have a few months to go, and what you start today will be a habit by 2020. So take a few (or 20) minutes, evaluate your life, home, habits, etc and decide where you can make a change. Then create that end-year goal and make it happen.
Out of town guests arriving can be extremely exciting and at the same time extremely stressful. One way to cut down on the stress is to keep things organized so you know where everything is at a moment’s notice.
And what’s one way to do this?
Keep ‘guest’ related items in the room they belong
With this tip I’m thinking specifically of towels and linens. If you have a designated guest room, utilize the closet or dresser space for those items. If guests stay in a child’s bedroom, keep the linens tucked away in the closet where they can’t be used accidentally. Typically I’m a big advocate for keeping everything in one place (such as a linen closet) but sometimes you have to break the rules in order to eliminate the stress of looking for something only to find it’s been used by a “non-guest”.
