Thoughts from Clutter Clear
Slow down! Limit the activities in your life and in those of your family.
Let every person (over 3 years of age) share responsibility for keeping their home clean, neat, and organized.
Save money and time – grocery shop only once a week. This applies to on-site and on-line shopping, to families of all sizes, and to individuals.
Aim for a "neat-enough" home! If floors, rooms and surfaces are picked–up and uncluttered, your home is "neat enough".
At least once a week buy nothing at all from any source — in-store, catalog or on-line. However, do not "make-up" another day for the no-purchase day!
Provide wastebaskets throughout the home. Teach everyone how to use them, when and where to empty them, and to return them to where they belong.
Reduce paper coming into your home by cancelling subscriptions to at least two (2) consumer, leisure, news or popular magazines each year. Public libraries lend most of these items.
Practice your equivalent of "smelling the roses" often.
