Days of Holiday Organizing Tips – Day 30

Looking Good for Your Holiday Party

I go to a hair stylist who specializes in curly hair. He’s the best in the San Diego area and only one I’d entrust my curls to. That means that if I want an appointment with him I better have it scheduled months in advance.

Even if your hair stylist isn’t that busy, make sure you schedule your hair cut and color, mani/pedi or any other self care appointment way in advance. After all the hard work to make this holiday season beautiful for everyone you’ll want to be looking, well, gorgeous!

Don’t forget to take care of yourself! With all your holiday planning, scheduling, baking and decorating, it’s time to take a break for a little “me time.” Put your feet up, watch your favorite TV show or schedule a quick trip to your local spa for a little pampering.

While you’re at it, schedule appointments now with your hair stylist, nail technician or massage therapist. The holidays are busy times for most businesses and you’ll want to ensure you can get an appointment.

As the holidays approach, schedule time to get away and find a little peace and quiet every week. If you find yourself pulled in too many directions or feeling overwhelmed, ask for help. Your family would much rather spend a few minutes helping you clean up than face a mommy meltdown.

And remember, spending time with the people you love is always more important than having a perfectly tidy living room or a spotless kitchen.

Looking forward to an organized Holiday Season?

Invest in the Home Management Binder Set and plan all you’ll need to have a joyful and well planned season.

Here’s what you’ll get in the Home Management Binder Set.


Bring Calm & Free Time to Your Daily Life!

Take control back with this complete set of forms for all things home!

Do you feel that no matter how much you organize you’re always looking for “something”? Do you have several containers, multiple filing systems?

You are not alone!

My clients’ biggest problem is the sheer amount of paper and information that lands in their home and offices daily.

The problem is, without a system in place, finding the information you need becomes a constant battle and a whole lot of waisted time.

This is why I created the forms for the home management binder: to organize all the information you need to manage your family.

I know these forms will give you a tremendous sense of relief and control and that by getting all your information together will take this “monkey” off your back! Now you don’t have to guess where things are anymore.

You know exactly where to find them: in your binder. :-) I am sure you will love these forms and will use them for years to come!

31 Days of Holiday Organizing Tips – Day 29

Organize the Entryway – First impressions

Clean and decorate the front of your house, your front porch and immediate area by the entrance. A simple clean up and a fresh new doormat can make all the difference.


Even if you don’t organize anywhere else in your home, organize the entryway! Make sure the front of your house, your front porch and immediate area around the entrance is sparkly clean and decorated.

Check if you need to power wash anything, if you have to change a light fixture (ours was 25 years old last time I checked!) and even just changing the doormat will bring some fresh color to the front door.

Curb appeal isn’t just for individuals looking to sell their home. First impressions make a big difference for holiday parties as well. Ensure your guests get a beautiful curbside view of your house by decorating your home’s exterior.

  • Clean the entrance. Wipe down your exterior door and clean the windows. Sweep your front porch to remove any debris like fallen leaves.
  • Choose a holiday doormat. Greet your guests with your favorite seasonal doormat.
  • Add holiday décor. For Thanksgiving, opt for a rustic, harvest theme with lots of fall colors. Later in the year, some simple pieces of garland and a few strands of holiday lights will brighten your home and make your entryway feel welcoming.
  • Decide on parking. If you aren’t able to fit all of your guests’ cars into your driveway, instruct guests on where they should park.
  • Make room for coats. If your entryway closet doesn’t have enough room, designate another space in your home for guests’ belongings.
