Mid-January is always a tricky time of year. The kids are on holiday, the back to work blues are setting in and keeping the house presentable is an ongoing struggle. As you are reading this, your dog probably just swallowed another piece of Lego.
Indeed, it goes without saying, January comes with its classic trials – but there are three must-have items, which we think may make it a little easier.
To Prepare for the Back to School Rush
This one is for all the victims of January back to school panic syndrome. Oh, how quickly the stationary shopping trip creeps up on us. While we can’t help you with the annual issue of finding that your household owns eight glue sticks and counting (why on earth do we keep buying new glue sticks every year?) – there is one thing we can assist with, and that is getting you ready to streamline your morning routine. The Jimmy Organiser is the ultimate tool for this - perfect for hanging backpacks, keeping shoes stowed and sitting the kids down to tie their laces. Consider the Jimmy Organiser your morning routine zone, and your best defense against the first day back madness.
To Tidy Up
It is always great having the kids around over Summer. However, their home occupation is often coupled with what is best described as ‘the toynado’. Raise of hands for people who have had a near death “toy-car-versus-wooden-floor-versus-foot” experience in the last month. To tackle this, we suggest the Denim Basket. It’s trendy, it’s durable, and it’s light enough for the kids to drag around the house and tidy up their toys on their own. Now there’s a nice thought.
To Beat the Blues
The return to work is always a bit rough after a long break. But just because you’re back in the office doesn’t mean that you can’t keep chipping away at your holiday projects! Beat the blues and keep those creative Summer break juices flowing with a new piece of furniture. Our Jesse Living Table is a great place to start – providing a platform for decoration and styling without taking up too much floor space. Let your imagination run wild after 5pm and think framed prints, vases and candles. Once you get started, you’ll forget your holiday ever ended.
