BLOG DESCRIPTION: Organizing Expert, Paris Love will provide you with organizing tips and solutions to help you live an organized and clutter-free life.
MY REVIEW: Paris Love is a professional organizer (author of 50 Tips to Get You Organized in 50 Minutes or Less). (Here's her credentials: An active member of the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO). Paris co-chairs as NAPO's Membership Director and has served on the NAPO-GA Executive Board and Board of Directors and has held the positions of Librarian and Secretary. She currently holds the Historian and Ambassador positions within the Georgia Chapter. Paris is a member of NAPO's Golden Circle, a prestigious designation denotes an elevated level of experience within the professional organizing industry. Golden Circle members possess at least five years of proven professional organizing work activity.)
So she knows whereof she speaks. The caveat for this blog is she only posts once a week. Of course her blog is only 99 cents a month, which is not an onerous fee for five posts, but really, it should be more.
Anyway, she writes well, has things to say of interest, so give her blog a look-see.
Going Green This School Year
Back to School is here and below are some tips on keeping your child healthy this school year.
Does your child have allergies? Are they easily distracted? Do you notice their concentration level slipping when they are given an assignment? You may want to consider the products they are using. Adults spend the majority of their time at work and our children spend their time at school/daycare or with friends. Using eco-friendly products are essential for your health as well as your child’s. Here is a list of suggested products;
--Use binders made with 100% recycled corrugated material
--Children put everything in their mouths, so consider biodegradable or non-toxic writing utensils
--Use post consumer products for paper products
--Scissors should have a 70% recycled plastic handle
--Use desks that are 100% formaldehyde free
A number of companies (traditional brick and mortar and online) sell environmentally-friendly products that a parent can use to set up an in-home study area for their child
100 percent recycled file folders from Staples are perfect for a study area
Greenhome.com sells an eco-friendly wastebasket made from 99 percent reclaimable automobile tires and recycled plastic trim
IKEA sells a number of storage products that can be placed in the study area as a drop point to recycle school papers and junk mail
When purchasing recycled or reclaimed products be sure to look for the recycle symbol on the item’s exterior packaging
If you’re not fully convinced, compare a recycled folder to a regular product by taking the ‘sniff’ test. You can smell the toxics in non post consumer products and the texture is different as well.
