In celebration of National “Get Organized” Month (GO Month), Organizers Northwest invited fans, clients and followers to send us their home or office organizational questions and challenges. Professional Organizer Veronica Bishop has jumped in to answer some of them here on our blog. We hope they are helpful. Happy Organizing!
Q: I’ve been receiving more and more photo greeting cards during the holidays, and now I don’t know what to do with them all. I feel bad tossing them, but I’m kind of over displaying them. Is this something that people hold on to?
A: First of all – just in case you need it – we give you permission to throw those away! With the number of friend’s photos you can find on Facebook and other social media sites, how often will you be inclined to go back and look at these cards? If you do feel the need to hold on to photo greeting cards, create an album that you can tuck the special ones into each year – but only keep those that are truly meaningful to you.
Thanks to everyone who took the time to send in their organizing questions for this special Get Organized Month blog. We will feature some more questions next week, so keep ‘em coming! One lucky person will win a $25 gift card from Storables.
