_____ Printable Checklist Tip #1Last week, a reader asked about how to organize the freezer. Here’s what I recommend you do: Take everything out and repack frozen foods into aluminum tins that are clearly labeled. If you want to have fun with some organizing products that will help, I recommend Under Shelf Wrap Rack or Copco 2555-1978 Adjustable Bakeware Organizer. You can take your frozen food and stack it neatly with the help of the shelf organizers, or even vertically with the adjustable bakeware organizer.

_____ Printable Checklist Tip #2Make a note of what worked well and what didn’t work out well for organizing Chanukah. For example, if you used a certain kind of wick that didn’t work out, write it down not to buy those again. Jot down items you may have seen that you would like to have next for Chanukah so you can refer to it next year.

_____ Printable Checklist Tip #3 Visit Jewish stores online and locally this week to purchase Chanukah items such as Menorahs, candles, books, dreidels, replacement items, etc., at a discount.

_____ Printable Checklist Tip #4 Decide if your current Chanukah supply storage is adequate. In my dream home, I would designate a rolling cart for each Holiday, to contain all items related to the Yom Tov and then pull it out before each Yom Tov. Decide if your Chanukah storage is functional and working for your family. Do you have adequate space for Menorahs, candles, wicks, art projects, dreidels and the like? If you don’t, a cart like Rolling 6-Drawer Craft Organizer Cart
will work well for you to be kept after Chanukah in a storage area. Before buying any container, first assess how much you will need to store and then decide if the organizing container will be adequate.

_____ Printable Checklist Tip #5-Last week, one of our readers asked about organizing mail. I will write a post about mail later but for now, just start noticing what your habits around the mail are. Where do you put it first thing when you walk in from your car? Do you pile it? Open it immediately? Just start noticing what your habits are around the mail and I’ll notify you when a more complete post around mail is up and running.
