Garage Sale Sign

Greetings from Shorter Designs! Spring is here and if you are like many people, you see this as a good time of year to do a little spring cleaning, get a fresh start, and do some purging. Yard sales are a wonderful way to make some cash and at the same time give you a deadline to have all of your belonging sorted.

If you are planning to have a yard sale this spring or summer, here are some useful tips:

  • Schedule the date far enough in advance so you can list it in the newspaper and free websites posting community events.

Greetings from Shorter Designs! As you may have noticed from the brief newsletter in July, my husband and I had a beautiful baby girl, Rachel Leah Shorter, on June 13. She and I are doing well, and my maternity leave is over now. I am back doing one of the things I enjoy most… helping people get and stay organized!

The summer can be a relaxing time, but it can also be stressful. We have vacations to plan, the kids are out of school, and things can quickly seem to spiral out of control if we are not careful.
