Fall Wardrobe Update

The leaves are turning and Indian Summer is over so it's time to switch the closets over from summer to fall wardrobes. Pack away summer sandals, shorts and bathing suits (but not too far away if you plan a southern get away this winter.

Schedule some time to review what fits, what is reusable and what can be donated. Start a family shopping list of the basics you'll need to stock up on i.e. hats. Dig out rain wear and winter boots and if you need replacements buy them while there is still a good selection. We tend to wear more accessories in winter so create a bin for each person to containerize their hats, gloves, scarves etc.

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?
