Any parent of multiple children (and lots of one-child families!) knows that dressing for family holiday photos is easier said than done.
Who hasn't been there, frantically scrubbing at stains and tugging down sleeves while the photographer taps his foot? Worse, last-minute clothing issues don't lead to happy faces for the family photo.
This week, check the condition and fit of any outfits to be worn in family photo sessions. If garments need to be added or replace, add them to the seasonal shopping list. Save time and tears!
To limit collectible items like media, magazines or craft supplies, reach for the containment principle. Designate an appropriate container, shelf or cabinet for storage, then decide that you'll only keep as many items as the container will hold. When a new issue of Family Fun magazine arrives, remove the oldest issue from the magazine holder and recycle it--to keep clutter at bay!
