Leap Day — oh, it’s such the mysterious date on the calendar. Every four years it appears and gives us an extra 1,440 minutes. It’s a bonus day just hiding out in February. Sneaky, sneaky.
Geralin Thomas, long-time friend of Unclutterer and owner of Metropolitan Organizing in Cary, North Carolina, has an article up on the Fine Living Network website with suggestions for how to spend this day. One of her organization suggestions from the article is quite cool (pun intended):
Just Chill: If you scramble around, wasting time looking for your reading glasses, mobile phone, remote control or car keys on a regular basis, it’s probably because you don’t have a designated place for things. While this idea sounds crazy, it works! Get a cafeteria-style tray – the kind with separated compartments – and a label maker. Label the sections: Keys, Glasses, Wallet, etc. Before going to bed, put these items in their appropriate place and set the entire tray, contents and all, in the fridge.
Happy Leap Day!
