Welcome to Summer

Today is the first full day of summer so it is time to reorganize what you carry with you in your car.

Last week a number of motorists were stranded on the 401 for hours waiting for an accident to be cleared. What would you have done in such an emergency? No matter what the season it is always a good idea to carry a portable cellphone charger and also keep some non-perishable energy bars or other snacks. Also, keep bottles of water in case you (or your car) get overheated in the hot weather!

Pack sunscreen,lip balm, bug spray, sunglasses and a hat into a small tote to keep handy and keep your cool during what promises to be a long, hot summer.

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?
