HAPO President's Message
by Karen L. Simon, PC Tech Associates
Happy and Stress-free Holidays to You!
As the Holidays draw near, our to-do lists get longer. Our clients ask, “How can I possibly do more?” Accomplishing more takes planning and good time management. As the saying goes, “Give a task to a busy person.” Why? Because busy people get things done!
Behind that busy person, you’ll likely find a system of writing everything down, making lists, grouping like-tasks together, and blocking out hours on a calendar to accomplish groups of tasks. That is how busy people get things done, and often with time to spare!
Professional organizers help busy people to get things done. Whether it is teaching time management skills, creating systems to reduce clutter, or helping to give possessions a “home” to improve efficiency, hiring an organizer can relieve stress in busy lives.

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!
