Changing seasons bring about the opportunity – and sometimes the necessity – to reorganize the house.

Victoria Pericon, a family lifestyle expert, offers a few tips to help us S-T-O-P and take a different approach to orga-
nizing and economizing our households this year.

Swap stories, clothes

With growing children, each season can mean a change of wardrobe. If a trip to the mall isn’t in the budget, organize a “Frock Swap” with friends to exchange their children’s outgrown clothing for outfits that will fit your children. It’s fun, and it can save families a lot of money.



Toss it in the recycle bin

Sometimes it’s the little things that tend to pile up and create a mess. Instead of throwing away old papers, magazines and mail, recycle it. If your area doesn’t offer a recycling program, but your employer does, shred and bag up your paper items and take them to work to toss them.
