HAPO President's Message

Glorious June! Welcome Summer!
October Means Fal
The month of June stirs up thoughts of the beginning of a new season: Summer! School's out; days are longest; much-anticipated vacations are taken.
For some, vacations can be stressful. Pets, plants and the home must be cared for. What if an emergency happens and I'm not here? If children are involved, readying the family takes preparation. Do we have enough clothing? Is it appropriate? Can we make it through airports with our luggage? If its a road trip, do we have everything we need?
Arrangements must be made at the workplace. Who will take over while I'm gone? What will I face when I return?
Vacations takes planning. Having a worry-free vacation takes skill and organization. Professional Organizers can teach techniques and provide tips that help you to plan and manage any project, yes, even your vacation!

Tips to Get Organized

TIP: RE-USE OLD JEWELRY BOXES
Do you have small jewelry boxes hidden away somewhere? Re-purpose those boxes and lids by placing them face-up in your catch-all drawer. They're great for separating out paperclips, keys, rubber bands, coins, etc. so you can find what you need when you need it!
