De-Cluttering Your New Year

De-Cluttering your New Year

Before all of the Christmas decorations get taken down to be packed away for another year, it might be a good idea to sort through those things in the boxes that have not been displayed for several seasons.

Question:  What do I do with them? Who takes Christmas decorating donations?

This job can be emotionally taxing for many of us because there are so many memories attached to the gathering of each little treasure.  Will our children want to have it? Will it be enjoyed and loved by another family?

In this day of young people just starting their lives together, of newly separated or divorced individuals trying to make something special for their children in each new residence … the cost alone of beginning to make the feeling of a warm, inviting Christmas atmosphere can be unnerving.

Your de-cluttering sacrifice can be a huge blessing to someone else next year. Keeping that positive attitude in mind will make the painful decisions much easier.

Everything that you didn’t use this year can be donated. OUCH! I know … it is hard to say, let alone to do.

Keep what you love and those special things that your children made for you.  Let someone else enjoy what you have been privileged to use for many years.

Happy New Year!

In my many years of work, I have come across many fantastic people in business, people with similar interests in betterment, in helping clients and making sure their interests are always top of mind. These people have not only become great business partners, but also good friends and excellent resources for me and my clients. As for you getting to know a little more about me... I was born and raised in Fort Erie, a place I am glad to call my home. My family and I enjoy traveling and experiencing new places the world has to offer, boating on Lake Erie and the Niagara River and golfing on many of the excellent Fort Erie courses. Fort Erie was “the” place to grow up. We had a little place to hang out called “Crystal Beach”. Even with those days behind us, we still have these great things and many more!

Our town has great proximity to Buffalo, Niagara Falls and other major cities such as; Toronto, Hamilton, Burlington and so much more. Fort Erie is a great place to raise a family or retire.
