Decluttering Safety

There are millions of great decluttering blogs and videos out there, but many were done before the pandemic. No matter what advice you heed, tailor it to today’s reality. When gathering and packing up items you want to get rid of during Covid-19 don’t rely on boxes from friends, grocery stores or liquor stores unless you have the opportunity to air them out for a few days. As service to our community, we offer two boxes free for you to collect up things you want to donate or give away.

Ways You Can Support Your Local Businesses During A Pandeminc

Everywhere we look big brands and big box stores are on display. While these large companies have the money to buy online ads or billboards it’s small businesses that most impact on our local community. And it’s small business that has been mostly impacted by the pandemic.

Small businesses color and enrich local shopping by providing unique products and services that make our local communities great places to live. No one wants to live in a neighborhood where unique local stores are replaced with For Lease signs. These small businesses also provide the lions share of employment and often employ people we know. These are our neighbors, friends, and family so it makes sense to support them, and during the pandemic, it’s more important than ever that these businesses survive for the health of our communities.

Feeling Overwhelmed While You Work At Home?

Feeling overwhelmed while you work at home? Getting organized can help you take back some control and get clear on what work tasks should take priority. Not all of us have Marie Kondo’s instinct for organization, so where should you start?

If you are considering making a work space in your bedroom, I recommend getting a room divider of some sort to separate the work area from the sleep area. Seeing your place of work while you are trying to wind down and trying to sleep is not good for you psychologically.
