It’s January 2010 already. Time really does fly when you’re having fun. Now, you are sitting down with your feet up getting over the busy holiday season. Wrapping, shopping, cleaning, cooking, baking and decorating can wear a body out.

While you are sitting there relaxing, you think to yourself, “I should be doing something.” Why not do something easy, like organizing. It doesn’t take a lot of physical work, just some brain power.

Let’s start with your purse or wallet. You can do that sitting down, with your feet still up. A wallet should only have your current photo ID, some cash (maybe), a credit card (if you have one), and any business cards or phone numbers that you actually need or use. Pitch all the rest away.

The purse should only have a datebook or a pocket calculator, a small pad to write down anything that you need remembered, a pen or a pencil, a comb or brush or both, some Kleenex or a handkerchief, your keys, glasses (sun or day ones), and a small pair of scissors for clipping coupons and such.

There you are, all organized and not worn out, as you did it all while sitting down. I should follow my suggestions myself. My purse contains all the above and more. Much more. My husband says my purse is a deadly weapon and could cause bodily harm if used as such.

My thought for the month is: Don’t forget to feed your feathered friends (except the pigeons in Grantsville). Birds like to eat too.
