Have you ever noticed how some people have a gift when it comes to letter writing? You know the type — they never miss a birthday or an important event and always seem to get the point across while making you feel special all at the same time. If you’re thinking that definitely isn’t you, don’t worry. It can be! Just use these simple tips and you’ll be able to write the perfect letter, no matter what the occasion. Send your letter in an appropriate time frame. Sending a belated birthday card or a late thank you note just don’t send the same message as sending one on time does.

Did you know that organized people save time? It’s because they’re not always searching for things. The National Association of Professional Organizers say, “Organized people save time and money and reduce stress and frustration levels. There is no one right or wrong way to get organized. Organizing systems help you deal with everything from your paper to your professional responsibilities and give you parameters on what to keep, what to toss and what to take action.” Now, you may be asking yourself what is an organization system? The answer to that is it’s totally up to you. Your personality, environment, and personal style will help you come up with an organization system that’s perfect for you. Basically, it doesn’t matter how you de-clutter your space as long as you do it. By getting organized you’ll save time, stress and probably even a little money. Evaluate your space: where’s the mess?
