Organizing Your Tie Rack
Okay guys - admit it. Your tie rack is a mess.
Take these simple steps to straighten it all out:

Get two plastic bags - one for Discard and one for Donate.
Lay all your ties out on the bed or floor.
Discard ALL that are stained, torn or discolored.
Donate ALL that:
- Don't match any of your clothing
- Are really out of style for good
- You haven't worn in a year
- Who knows? When you get through, you might be glad to get a tie for your next gift!

Organizing Your Jewelry Box
You keep wearing the same accessories over and over because your jewelry box is such a mess. With a little organization, you'll enjoy what you have a lot more.
Take these simple steps:

Get three plastic bags - one for Discard, one for Donate and one for Repair.
Untangle everything and group like objects together.
Discard ALL the pieces that are broken beyond repair.
Discard ALL single earrings.
Put the pieces that you always wear in one spot.
Put all the valuable or sentimental pieces in one spot.
Be very critical of what is left. Donate what you know you'll never wear.
There are lots of places to donate jewelry. Maybe one of your friends would like to have a look, or your kids. And just think - if you empty some of that space, you'll have room for something new!

Organizing Photographs
Love those photos of all the family but just have too many lying around? Here's some tips for enjoying them more:

Buy acid-free archival binders for your photos and have a few empty ones around all the time.
Put photos into binders immediately. Once they get in a drawer, they most likely won't come out again.
Make little notes about the occasion and the people for reminders in years to come. It makes for a much more interesting book when there's a story behind the picture.
Add making scrapbooks to the things you do with your kids on a rainy day. You'll all be laughing till the sun comes out again.
Buy photo books and fill them up for friends and relatives at gift time. With little added notes, it's a personal gift everyone will love.
