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. alone; 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 porfessional 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" or "packing" phase the "moving day blues" phase or "now I'm here, where do I put it" phase, a professional organizer can help. They're just a phone call or email away.

Tips to Get Organized

TIPS TO MANAGE YOUR SUPPLIES
Group like items together. This is a basic, but really helpful start to getting organized. Figure out where to keep items like tools, giftwrapping supplies, crafts, etc. and then reunite the items that wandered away from each other!
