Think Before You Shop

Tomorrow is Black Friday and as turkeys are roasting this morning, Americans are gearing up for the frenetic shopping that starts as early as 4AM or even today if you go to Wal Mart or K-Mart. Before you put on your running shoes to get those bargains, take some time to look at your shopping list and think long and hard about what your friends and relatives really need in their lives. Is it another cashmere scarf, ipod or video game? Maybe what these people need is the gift of time or a service. I know it may sound corny, but if your friend with three toddlers never has any down time, then consider making a massage appointment for her while you babysit. If a relative needs rides to appointments, don the chauffeur's hat and drive him/her. Sometimes we just don't need another physical object to crowd our lives, so you may want to consider hiring an organizer to help someone who is drowning in clutter in their home or office. A few hours of de-cluttering can make a huge impact that will last longer than any fruit basket or sweater. If you would like to give the gift of organization, Clarity is here to help.
