This month JAM Organizing presents an informative post from a guest blogger. Enjoy!
Having a home to call your own is a wonderful feeling, but let’s be honest here: there will be times when you find yourself nitpicking at certain details of your house. Is there a particular backsplash in your kitchen that you aren’t fond of? Does your living room and kitchen look cramped? Do you dislike the interior of your bathrooms? A lot of times, these little problems that you have with your house won’t go away with time, but there are lots of simple ways to revamp your old home that will have you falling in love with it once more.
JAM Organizing will soon announce the schedule for two different educational series to help you get where you want to be. Join us for live classes in Wilmington, North Carolina and, in the near future, for webinars you can watch regardless of where you live.

You've asked. We've answered.
Accountants and the IRS recommend keeping your last seven years of tax returns and supporting documentation, and that's what I tell my clients. I was recently able to help a client purge over 224 lbs of well-organized tax documents spanning the last 46 years.
Full disclosure: I don't enjoy lining my cabinets. Not even a little. I never buy enough shelf liner, it always takes longer than I expect, and before the project is over, I've been to the store MULTIPLE times to buy more. Why do I line my kitchen cabinets? For the same reason many women do much of what we do around the house: because my mother did.
So, I decided to look into it. Is this necessary? Do the benefits outweigh the frustration? Turns out, they do.
So, I was decluttering for a new client, when a book title caught my attention: Is There Life After Housework? I thought it was an empty-nester, reinventing-your-life-post-kids type instruction book. It's not. It's so much more.
April is Stress Awareness Month - a perfect time to reflect on your home and whether it's a port in the storm or a storm in itself. If you're fearing it's the latter, don't fret. Recognition is the first step, and you're not alone.
There's a certain energy at the beginning of Spring that makes us want to clean and organize. Clients are calling, and I'm in new homes each week. Now is the time to take advantage of the energy we naturally feel this time of year, and declutter, organize, and clean our homes.
A decluttered and organized home brings many benefits, including the time and money saved cleaning. Here are five reasons why an organized home is easier to clean.
Pro Stock Hockey recently reached out and asked us to share some Hockey Gear Organization tips with our readers. Of course! Garages are challenging enough to organize, but garages with sports equipment of different shapes and sizes are even more challenging! Where do you put the sticks? the pads? the jerseys? Pro Stock Hockey has some great ideas, and I had to share.
There are two giants in the world of digital photo organization: Forever and Mylio. They are both rated superior and are highly recommended by experts, but there are notable and important differences. So, how do you know which is best for your needs? Let's review them both, and I'll tell you my experiences and opinions so far.
How many digital photos do you have?
1,000? 5,000? 10,000? 25,000? 50,000? No idea?
You're not alone. Believe me. Over 1.2 trillion digital pictures were taken in 2017 and there are currently over 4.7 trillion photos tucked away on hard drives. So, now that I've thrown a couple overwhelming numbers at you, what should you do with all these photos?
