Tip #4 – The Nerve Center
With all the extra things – gifts and supplies and other stuff- floating around during the Holiday Season – it is best to establish The Nerve Center.
Basically, the nerve center is a specific location where gifts, supplies, lists, etc. are all stored until it is time to wrap and display or ship the items. Some suggestions are a spare bedroom, a spare bathtub, a laundry room counter, laundry basket(s), under a bed (if things need to be hidden from sneaky kids or husbands or hungry dogs (I have both)).
I would suggest not storing things on the kitchen counter or the table used for the main meals. These high traffic areas can cause things to get mixed up, broken or used up in everyday life – think chocolate gifts that turn into afternoon snacks.
Question for you:
Do you prefer gift bags or wrapping paper?
