Oh, I am too practical with the stocking stuffers. I bought toothbrush heads for the electric toothbrushes from Target. They didn't have enough at the store. I usually put in travel tissues and Chapstick too.curious where you order stocking stuffers from? Amazon? And they must be unique if they are being ordered.
I would love to do this. I agree about paying someone to help. That third party helps to keep everyone on track and paying for it means it is something serious and you can't put if off.I
Big thing this past week was the "Organizer" came. (*angels trumpets in distant heavens*) She was AWESOME! And a Marie Kondo fan, as am I. Spent an entire day going through that darn mudroom that makes me crazy and our basement. Now we have a couple weeks to work on our own til she comes back. When she left our takeaway was that we really "could" have done this ourselves but that we wouldn't have done it as quickly or as throughly -- and possibly ever. We consider ourselves to be pretty uncluttered except in the mudroom, attic and garage. And even those are not that bad. For us the plan here was more organizational for efficient running of the household. Well I'm telling you what. By the time she got done with us we were hucking out TONS of stuff! Including items of value! And the thing that was helpful was that:
1. We paid for her services so it was "happening" and it was happening "right now".
2. DH had to be fully involved.
3. We were both being directed in a way -- so we were not arguing with each other. The neutral third person was super helpful. So I didn't have a need to strangle DH.
4. A lot happened in ONE DAY. And there were some decision mades that "will" affect future construction during our renovations. So maybe we really did need to have her come in first.
Off to pack as I'm headed out. I have more threads going that I really want to check in on. Especially that Freezer and Keto thread. Will try to get to it this weekend but i really want to sit down and roll up my sleeves on those conversations. Will be happy when this trip is done and then I can focus on the here and now.
