HAPO President's Message

The Merry Month of May
May, the “merry” month, means that summer is just around the corner! May also means moving for more than 20 million people in the U.S. along; thus, it has been declared as National Moving Month.
Conducting a move takes patience and attention to detail. Making it as smooth as possible takes all of the organizing skills we can muster!
Did you know that some professional organizers are move specialists? They can help take some or all of the stress and strain out of a move by helping you through the phases of your move. Whether you’re in the “what to take and what to discard” phase, the “sorting for packing” phase, the “moving day blues” phase or the “now I’m here, where do I put it” phase, a professional organizer can help. They’re just a phone call or email away! Find A Professional Organizer in your area.

Tips to Get Organized

TAKE THE BURDEN OFF
Start and maintain a To Do List. Empty your mind of all the nagging tasks and errands onto a piece of paper or into your phone. It may seem overwhelming at first, but it can reduce your stress levels by taking the burden off your memory.
