Happy decorating to all and to all a good night!

Happy decorating to all and to all a good night!

‘Twas the day after Thanksgiving, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring,  not even my spouse
The game on TV was chosen with care
He’d root for a championship with a beer and a prayer

The dogs were nestled snug on their beds
While visions of turkey scraps danced in their heads
So I in my sweatpants, decorating plan in hand
Ventured to the attic to fetch the tree stand

The boxes were stacked high and leaning tall
‘Course the box I needed was under them all
Then from my midst there arose such a clatter
Think he’d spring from the couch to see what was the matter?

My tower of boxes had collapsed with a crash
Spilling decorations to the floor, broken and smashed
That moment I chose to end the disorder
And stomped to the Internet to see what to order

When what to my wondering eyes should appear
An attic shelf system that in no time could be here!
More rapid than eagles my AtticMaxx came
And I whistled and shouted above another game!

With a cordless screw driver and my hair pulled back
I took the first steps toward my attic attack
One shelf, then two, three and four!
In minutes my decorations were ready to store

To the top of my trusses!  To the top of my walls!
There’d be no more frustration in decking the halls!
And when I was done I stood back to admire
My organized attic to which others could aspire

My bins sat neatly atop each shelf
It wouldn’t have been easier if made by an elf
Unstacking boxes were a thing of the past
My AtticMaxx shelves were here to last

They held decos for Christmas, Halloween and Easter
And childhood treasures being saved for my sister
Camping, beach, ski, other seasonal gear
To be easily accessed throughout the year

And then, during a commercial, he heard near our roof
The prancing and dancing of his wife like a goof
As I took a step down and turned around
Up the attic stairs he charged with a bound

His eyes how they twinkled, his dimples how merry!
His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry!
His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow
No missing the game for wife’s boxes to tow!

He sprang down the ladder, to his team gave a whistle,
And away he flew back to the couch like a missile
But I heard him exclaim,  ‘ere he fell out of sight
“Happy decorating to all, and to all a good night!”

Starved for storage space?  Look up!

Starved for storage space? Look up!

Spring is in the air, and with warmer temps we often get the urge to purge. Here are some simple, common sense ways to organize your space so you can enjoy what matters most. 

  • Set goals, write them down and share with those around you – it’ll keep you motivated and accountable. Some examples of goals:  save time, reduce stress, save money, host a dinner party!
  • Decide where to start and just dive in.  Pick a place that has the greatest impact on your everyday life, such as where you spend the most time or what causes you the most stress.  Is your dinner table covered with papers?  Are boxes in the attic stacked to the ceiling?  Start there.
  • Use the right tools for the job.  Gather garbage bags for trash and donations, sticky notes and markers for labeling items that will stay or go, a notepad for action items, plastic totes for storage and moving items.
  • Use the right organizational systems for you.  A system is only helpful if it makes sense to you, makes sense to others who will need to use it and is maintainable. Function over form is key.
  • Discover hidden storage. People complain they don’t have enough storage space, but they’re usually not using the space they have wisely.  Often, the most under- utilized space (i.e., wasted space) in the home is vertical wall space in attics, garages and basements.  Take advantage of your wall space with wall mounted paper sorters, shelving, and containers.
  • Make some rules you can live by. If you don’t need it, don’t use it, or don’t love it, let it go. Live by a one-in, one-out policy—letting something old go before something new can come in.  And set (and stick to) deadlines – if something isn’t worn or used or read in a year, it has to go.
  • Keep it up.  To maintain change, our work is never done.  Continue to work with your systems daily, weekly, monthly, and remind yourself why you want to be organized. Take a step back and celebrate how you’ve made room in your life for what’s most important.

Spring is an ideal time to tackle attics, garages and outbuildings – not too cold, not too warm!  Find more helpful tips for getting organized this spring at AtticMaxx.com.
