Organizing Fall Fling: Day 10 - Books

Organizing Fall Fling: Day 10 - Books

Pursue those shelves and start flinging. Do you have books that you’ve already read and you won’t read again? Or perhaps books that you’ve started but just couldn’t get through? Let them go. Don’t forget to look through your nightstand. Make more room for books you truly love and are looking forward to reading.  If you mainly read on an e-device, consider archive the books that you’ve read or even deleting the really bad free books you downloaded.

Reading is fun and your bookcases should be too!

A 53-year-old man died after falling out of his wheelchair outside the a Waffle House restaurant Wednesday evening.

It happened at the Waffle House on Riverside Drive, near Spring Street in downtown Macon.

Bibb County Coroner, Leon Jones said a customer told an off-duty Macon police officer that the man was on the sidewalk outside.

The officer dialed 911, but when paramedics arrived, the man was dead.

Jones said it's unclear whether the man died from the fall or was stricken in the wheelchair.

He said earlier in the day, the man was taken to the hospital and treated for a bruise on the head. He was released around 6:30 p.m.

There have been no other injuries reported on the man's body, and foul play is not suspected, Jones said.

With the cooler Fall weather, let’s take a little stroll around your yard. Do you still have your spring flags out? (Guilty!) Are some of your garden gnomes looking a little worse for wear? It’s a good time of year to fling those things! Be ready for a fresh start in the spring.

What? You live in an apartment or have no yard and therefore no garden decorations? Lucky duck, you get the day off!

Organizing Fall Fling: Day 8 - Phone Contacts

Organizing Fall Fling: Day 8 - Phone Contacts

Today sit down with your phone and scroll through your contacts. Delete any names that you no longer need. I recently did this and had at least 5 names I couldn’t identify at all. If that happens, they can’t be very important to your daily life.  Also if you are like me and have had syncing issues with your phone and other devices, you may have duplicate entries. Delete those.

It’s just as important to keep your digital data in order as it is your physical stuf

Organizing Fall Fling: Day 7 - Shoes

Organizing Fall Fling: Day 7 - Shoes

Let’s purge those shoes. I like to get all of the shoes out, match all the pairs then start flinging. If the shoes hurt, if they are dusty or if they are out of style or in bad shape, out they go! The average woman owns 19 pairs of shoes (that seems low to me) but only wears 7 (that seems spot on).  Donate them to your favorite charity or if they are in bad shape, toss them. If you have old running shoes, some stores like RunFit will take them for Soles4Souls and give you a discount. Bonus!

These boots were made for walking but only if you actually wear them!
