Happy summer and welcome back to Thor's Thoughts! Hope you are enjoying the gorgeous weather outside as much as I am! 

As summertime comes to a close and the school year begins, life can get a bit hectic.  During this time of the year, it can sometimes be difficult to remain on top of home organization and daily maintenance.  With that in mind, I've made a list of some helpful organization tips for keeping your home tidy and beautiful!  Enjoy!

  • Open shelving paired with identical storage containers are a great way to stay neat while also looking stylish.  Storage baskets are a great option to organize with style.  Many storage containers even have space for labels making finding things later even easier!  

  • Stacking vertically and stacking things to the top can be a huge space saver especially in tucked away places such as closets. 

  • Unpack anything still left in its original packing to save space and continue doing this each time you bring something new home to avoid clutter from that extra outer packaging. 

  • Lastly, setting up a cleaning routine can be a lifesaver for keeping your home neat and tidy.  While summertime can be hectic, setting aside a little extra time for maintenance is key to maintaining a clean home.  
Hope this helps! To conclude, here's a little dog wisdom:  "Sniff out opportunity and trust your instincts'". Take care friends!
A Glance Into the Past|  What have we been up to this summer?  In July, we had a great time joining the Town of Banner Elk in their annual Fourth of July Parade.  
Company Barbecue| We had an amazing time at our company barbecue event held at The Valle Crucis Community Park.  It was great to spend a beautiful afternoon surrounded by good friends, family and food.

VPC Builders in the Community|At VPC Builders, we believe that it is very important to be involved in the community that we are a part of.  We had the amazing opportunity to sponsor a rising 6th grade student in the Junior Beta Club at Mabel School. Junior Beta Club is a service and leadership club. While students compete within the means of their talents and skills, they also attend sessions that instill the integrity and motivation needed to be successful leaders in their respective schools.  
We'd like to congratulate the  student we sponsored for placing 1st at the North Carolina Junior Beta Club Convention in woodworking! This also allowed him the opportunity to go to the National Junior Beta Club Convention where he competed against other talented students from around the country and received 4th place! Pictured here is the beautiful table he built out of cedar.  
Get Inspired By This Quote From Our Office Chalkboard Walls.  We are all about inspirational quotes; obviously, since our walls are covered with them! Get inspired with us and check out our favorite quote this month, straight from our office walls.

"Don't let the fear of losing be greater than the excitement of winning."

-Robert Kiyosaki

Everyone is afraid of failure or losing in life.  It's a natural fear, but you can't let that fear stop you from doing what you have to do.  The only way to achieve success is by taking risks.  By taking risks we might fail at times, but failure can always be looked at as just one more step towards success.  When we do win and succeed, the risks taken to get there make us appreciate the reward of accomplishing something and achieving that success even more.
