One of the most glorious messes in the world is the mess created in the living room on Christmas Day. Don't clean it up too quickly. Andy Rooney

But come Boxing Day... if you are consumed with Christmas clutter or despaired by starting the New Year disorganised you know who to call! Kerri Rodley 0422 520 354


When you think of Christmas, do you think of fun times and celebrations with loved ones, or groan at the thought of all the things you need to do? This Christmas, focus on the good times and get organised with these handy tips for the festive season.

Out with the Old
Involve the family and complete a pre-Christmas clean out. Clear out unwanted toys, clothes and accessories. Donate items in good condition to a local charity and give others a good Christmas too.

Play Santa
Draft a list of gift suggestions for everyone you wish to buy for. Do some research by browsing store catalogues, websites or make phone calls so you know exactly where to go.

Eat, Drink and Be Merry
Start planning the menu and pre-order your ham or turkey to pick up on Christmas Eve. Purchase many of the pantry items early to spread the cost and store them in a separate area in the pantry.

Happy Holidays
Make your travel arrangements early to avoid disappointment and pay less. When packing create a list in advance and give yourself plenty of time. Don't forget to pack the passports in a safe spot or give the car a safety check.

Welcome your Guests
This time of year means visitors and overnight guests. Prepare the guest room by getting rid of any clutter and add finishing touches like fresh flowers, a fragrant candle, bedside lamp and an alarm clock for their comfort.
