The 7 Best Summer Tips - Easy On You & Your Wallet!

August 1st is upon us.
How's your summer going?


Mine's going along fine -the kids have decided they wanted quiet days, so our summer is passing very peacefully.. Lots of time for doing what you want -  no running around.  


If  your summer needs a bit of help in the peaceful department, I've stumbled upon a terrific list of ways to keep your summer running smoothly, but at the same time give you time for fun! 



Here are the tips, courtesy of April Welch, who is known as the Mental Clutter Expert
  1. Create a location where you wipe down, dry off or air dry anything that has gotten wet at the end of each day/week.
  2. Schedule time once a week to assess the situation: make sure things haven't been forgotten or left behind during tip #1 & repair or replace any damaged items
  3. Inventory before you buy: duplicates cause more unnecessary clutter than anything else, make educated purchasing decisions
  4. Once you've decided to purchase something new, determine where it will live long term before you bring it home
  5. Enlist help: cohabitants {adults & children alike} can pitch in on the picking up, care of and organizing of summer clutter ... just ask for the help
  6. Rotate a stocked summer bag with things like: sunscreen, goggles, silicone ear plugs, healthy snacks, a water bottle, travel gamesspray-in hair conditioner & combdeodorant, light reading & on-the-go battery charger
  7. Relax: while it's important to make sure things are taken care of, it's also important to let your hair down and take a breather!


So what do you think? Would these tips work for you? Let me know in the comments section......
