The Northern Beaches

Editors Notice Board

Welcome to October To all our beautiful families in the Northern Beaches What could be better than warmth and sunshine surrounding us. I love how the weather is drawing our kids outside to play. Read a great article by Viv Grimson “Why should I send my child outdoors?” Going outside is good for our kids. So let them chase the chickens, hug their guinea pigs, go for a walk and have some “Fun Exercise”. Spring is also the perfect time to get SPRING-ORGANISED. We have a couple of great books to help you “Paper Flow” and “ Stuffed to Sorted”. Like us on Facebook for your chance to WIN and tell us which one you would like to receive see details on page 28 Book Review. Thank you to all our local writers, they have written some great articles for you this month. Did you know that October is Foot Month and Sarah from Flip flops Mona Vale has written “How to choose the right shoes for your children”. Ron from Empower Fitness Brookvale has written about “Physical bullying and what to do”. There are many more great articles inside about gardening, making a “Halloween Spider Cake” and many more .... so make a cuppa and take a 5 minute break with us.

BOOK REVIEW MaryAnne Bennie is a local writer, conference speaker and professional organiser. She is the founder and director of in8 Pty Ltd. and the author of Paper Flow (2011) and From Stuffed to Sorted (2012)

Paper Flow

Everyone knows how much information a typical family has, and it just keeps coming. Unfortunately, it often piles up, and important items get lost along the way. Paper Flow is your bible when it comes to organising all the paper and information in your life. Important documents finally have a home, bills get paid on time, household information gets filed and all your children's paperwork is sorted and stored. Class lists, excursion slips, school reports, baby sitter's instructions, theatre tickets and gift vouchers are all allocated specific homes, so you will never waste time searching for them again, ever! Paper Flow keeps households sane and in control of their information.

From Stuffed to Sorted When people are asked how their homes got into a chaotic mess, a lot of women cite having a baby as being the critical incident that started the decline. Mums are busy, and little ones are demanding of time and energy. Keeping a house in order is the last thing on a mum's mind when baby is crying, or other priorities are competing for time. From Stuffed to Sorted uses a system to get your home organised in a simple and logical way. It takes you from chaos to calm without having to dedicate huge blocks of time and/or large amounts of money. By simply dedicating small bursts of time and following simple instructions, mums can work through the home, one room at a time, until they achieve the level of order they crave.
