November Newsletter

November Monthly Newsletter • (484)903-9808

It’s the last month of fall this year. I am enjoying this last bit of beautiful weather. The crisp air, the gorgeous leaves and the humming of holidays! I know I am already thinking my Christmas cards, what I am going to make for Thanksgiving and even what cookies I will be making. So many things will soon be added to your list to do, that you may just go stir crazy. Don’t let the holidays make you insane. Just start with your list to do, and delegate! One great way to delegate is to get us in for your cleaning and organizing! Holidays have never been easier with us! Have us pull down decorations, take them up, clean before and after your parties, and get your house steam cleaned! All for 20% off from now till December 31st!
Also it is a sad farewell to 2 of our wonderful employees Holly and Patti, they are moving on in the world to great adventures! We are bringing on 3 more girls! Hopefully you will get to meet our newest members soon enough and you will fall in love with them just as much as we have!

Organization Idea of the Month

Holidays are right around the corner. So you need your home to be organized to be able to decorate, have family functions and find homes for the new items that are going to be coming into your home. Here is a step by step process of how to create that organized living space.
1. Start with the busiest areas. Your living room and kitchen are usually the two most used rooms in your home.
2. Use storage containers. Make a trip to the store and  get a bunch, and in different sizes, depending on what you need for each room (you can return what you don’t need). 
3. Divide your items into categories. If you like you can use trash bags or cardboard boxes for this part. Everything that you find can go into one of 4 piles: KEEP, THROW AWAY (into trash bags right away), GIVE AWAY (or SELL), and RELOCATE.
4. Remove everything from the drawers and cabinets. This will be a time-consuming process and can be overwhelming (at least for me) to have a bunch of little stuff you have to figure out want to do with, but it is easier to start with a clean slate and fill it instead of simply pushing things around.
5. Use of all of your available space. In the kitchen, for example, appliances or extra containers (items used less often) can be stored on top of the cabinets if they don’t extend all the way to the ceiling.
6. Label your containers. If you want to keep it simple use tape and a permanent marker to mark the contents of your storage containers.

Cleaning Idea of the Month
                Soon you will have to close up your hose, and outdoors will be too close to do any outside work. So now is the time to clean out your garbage cans! Here is a quick guide on how to do to!
3/4 cup of Simple Green Disinfecting
1 gallon warm water
1 tablespoon powdered laundry detergent
Hose out the garbage can with high pressure setting on the hose and rinse. Mix the ingredients in a cleaning bucket and pour into the trash container. Let sit for 15 minutes, then using a long handled scrub brush, scrub the insides of the can. Rinse with the hose, and turn it upside down in order to let all the water drain out of it.
Turn the garbage bin back around so that it is right-side up, and let it dry in the sun all day
Finally….spray the inside of the garbage bin thoroughly with a disinfectant.

Craft of the Month

                Simple. Let’s be thankful. Grab some construction paper, scissors and a heart to be thankful. Build a tree made of construction paper and put leaves on it. Put 2 different kinds of leaves on it, one is being tissue paper to find some beauty. The other leaves cut out of construction paper and write what you and your kids and family are thankful for. Let them hang and be grateful.
