What Is 'The ONE THING'
* that you can do
to live a more organized life?
Here are a few ideas for the month of October:
Take those old things you have gathering dust in your storage closet or garage and re-purpose them:
Place that old wine rack in your bathroom -- in it place those tall bottles of hair spray or magazines or towels.
That clear plastic shoe bag made to hang on the back of doors - can hold small items in your pantry, in storage areas or your bathroom.
Soda can tabs or shower rings - can be placed on a clothes hanger and then you can double up on storage.

Tall dogs might enjoy their food at their height. Take some old chairs, cut or have cut a hole the diameter of a dog food bowl, place a rimmed bowl in the hole and watch the appreciation.

Take those old toilet rolls and place all those highly disorganized computer cables or chords inside.
Since it is October - and the weather is getting cooler:
Begin to move your lighter fabric clothes to storage
Locate winter gear - boots
(inspect the heels and leather taking to repair shop if necessary), scarves, hats, gloves or items stored with a cleaners
Start planning your Holiday or New Year's travel
Gather your Halloween ticks and treats items and decide what needs to be replaced, updated, purchased. Think of buying healthy treats such as dried fruit snack packs, trails mix, fruit or veggie or cheese snack packs, popcorn; non-food alternatives
(pencils, pens, temporary tattoos, note pads)
Think about how you want to change decorations, in your house, for the fall season - where you will store summer items and where you might want to contribute items you no longer use or need.
