Out with the old in with the new

 jesGORDON/properFUN : event DESIGN , PLANNING, PRODUCTION
www.jesgordon.comOut with the old, in with the new – For the items that are too good to let go, keen organization skills will come in handy after the holidays. You now have more “stuff” in your house or apartment than you did before the holidays, but most likely the amount of space you have to store it in has not changed. So you are left with an organizing project on your plate.
Gayle Jacobs has turned organizing into her career with her company Actually Organized (www.actuallyorganized.net) and offers readers the following advice:
· Think of your closet like real estate and weed out the items that no longer serve you.
· Hold to the ‘1 item in, 1 item out’ rule
· Make sure to DONATE the unwanted items
· Get “cubic” and look at the actual dimension of your storage spaces and the items you need to store. The height of a particular space is often overlooked, so don't forget to measure all the way up.
· Extra space can be created by adding a shelf, or stacking shelves, adding over-the-door hooks or by stacking in a way that used the space more efficiently.
· Group like items together in the same container (i.e. scarves and gloves). Use containers that fit well the particular shelf or storage area.

Thanks a lot for your post. I'd like to write my opinion that the expense of car insurance varies widely from one scheme to another, for the reason that there are so many different issues which give rise to the overall cost. For instance, the make and model of the motor vehicle will have a huge bearing on the fee. A reliable outdated family motor vehicle will have an inexpensive premium than the usual flashy racecar.

Hollingsworth and I— tn pas cher france had been hoeing potatoes.that forenoon.while the rest of the fraternity were engaged in a distant quarter of sac longchamp farm — sat under a clump of maples.eating our eleven o’clock lunch.when nike tn saw a stranger approaching along the edge of the field.He had admitted nike air amx tn from the roadside through a turnstile.and seemed to have a purpose of speaking with us.And.by the bye.we were favored with many visits at Blithedale.especially from people who sympathized with our theories.and perhaps held themselves ready to unite in our actual experiment as soon as sac longchamp pas chershould appear a reliable promise of its success.It was rather ludicrous.indeed (to me.at least.whose enthusiasm had insensibly been exhaled together with www.longchamp.com perspiration of many a hard day’s toil).longchamp pas cher,was absolutely funny.therefore.to observe what a glory was shed about our life and labors.in the imaginations of these longing proselytes.In their view.we were as poetical as Arcadians.besides being as practical as the hardest-fisted husbandmen in Massachusetts.We did not.it is true.spend much time in piping to our sheep.or warbling our innocent loves to the sisterhood.But they gave us credit for imbuing the ordinary rustic occupations with a kind of religious poetry.insomuch that our very cow-yards and pig-sties were as delightfully fragrant as a flower garden.Nothing used to please me more than to see sac longchamp of these lay enthusiasts snatch up a hoe.as sac longchamp pas cher were very prone to do

The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my iPad and tested to see if it can survive a thirty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone![Reply]
