Set the Clocks Back One Hour

Well, Tackle it Now Day is finally here. The clocks have been set back and we enjoyed a leisurely day at home. On Saturday we cleared out old papers and organized stray clutter into manageable groups of items.

It is said that we never have enough time to do the things we want to do and we underestimate the time it will take to do the things we have to do.

That is why I declared Tackle It Now Sunday, twice a year, to coincide with the changes in Daylight Savings Time.

As a final reminder for the week, make sure that you locate and change all of your clocks. With the advent of technology there are so many clocks to change! Did you remember all of the clocks, your watches, your car, the VCR or DVD? Keep in mind that many electronics such as your computer and perhaps the clock radio will re-set themselves.

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?
