When you child comes home from school, does she know where her backpack and lunch box live?  These items should have a regular landing zone.  It could be a hook next to the child’s desk in her room or in a cubby by the entry door.  Having a consistent place to put these items will make them easier to find and cause fewer headaches during that mad dash out the door in the morning.

Tuesday's Organizing Tip: Simplify Social Media

Simplify your social media! How do you decide who to follow on Facebook or Twitter?

Before you follow or accept that friend request, check out the posts that the business/person/group has made. Are they informative, helpful, or entertaining? If not, don't follow them or go back and unfollow them. Their posts will just be visual clutter on your newsfeed or Twitter feed.

Pollen Count 'High' in the Macon Area

Pollen Count 'High' in the Macon Area

Some mixed news for allergy sufferers:

While the tree pollen count is still high at 1420, that's down from last Wednesday's 3,600 count, according to Dr. Plaxico's Allergy and Asthma Clinic in Macon.

Weeds and grass pollen count is now in the moderate range. That count is up from last week when the weed pollen was absent and the grass count was observed as low.
