Havoc to Harmony appearing on Health Matters

On Wednesday, June 22, 2011 I will be appearing on Rogers Cable 10 Peel on the Health Matters Show which will air at 7:00 p.m. and rerun again over the next several days.

The segment is entitled "The Stress of Stuff at Every Age" and it will focus on the many ages and stages of disorganization that we all experience such as kids going off to school and ageing parents downsizing.

I am being interviewed by Margaret Wallis Duffy from The Wallis Wellness Clinic. I am listed as one of her contributors and from time to time I post an article on her site. Check out her exciting new website at www.wallisforwellness.com for ideas about how to improve the health and wellness of your entire family.

Hints for Handling Your Gift List

How do you handle your holiday wish lists? Sometimes the simplest hints are the best. For years I have been using the same easy to implement method.

  • I purchase the tiniest address book I can find and assign one page for each person on my guest list.
  • I record their sizes, colour and style preferences.
  • I include family members, friends, hairdresser and all service providers.
  • I keep the list inside my wallet so it can quickly and easily be updated.
  • Information for stocking gifts is also recorded.
  • I can frequently review what I have purchased to keep my budget on track.
  • As I wrap gifts I check them off!
  • If certain gifts need to be hidden I record where they were put.
  • I also list ideas and purchases of hostess gifts to keep on hand.

There are many benefits to this system. It is lightweight and portable, but most importantly since I keep the lists year after year, it helps me to prevent repeating gift ideas. Who wants to get a sweater or tie year after year?
