Can you believe it’s December already! This year has flown by and now we are approaching the Holidays. As a professional organizer, I am conscious of clutter, which makes me think very carefully about the gifts I give. Will they serve a purpose or just add to the clutter that already invades their space? Ask yourself this question when you are shopping for gifts this holiday season.

Make a list of who and what you need to buy.  Group your trips.  If you can get a few things done at the mall or a plaza that has more than one store, plan ahead.  If at all possible shop locally and support your community.  Many towns have wonderful shops with unique items!

 

Here are a list of local events that offer great holiday gifts and while you shop can support the local businesses and artists at the same time!
