HAPO President's Message
by Karen L. Simon, PC Tech Associates
Glorious June! Welcome Summer!
The month on 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 roadtrip, 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 take 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 projects, yes, even your vacation!

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!
