When Peter Walsh was talking to the audience, he suggested there are 2 types of clutter:
Let’s take a look at each and see how we can re-think the way we look at those items.
Memory clutter is anything that you keep to remind yourself of a person, a time, a past event, etc. Things like:
Now that my blog has officially turned into a business with monthly income, I'm even more excited to track how well I'm doing using The Blogging Planner.

The day after Christmas is when I noticed them. The posts were short and to the point: “What are your New Year’s Resolutions?” I avoided responding because I swore to myself that this year would be the year that I didn’t make any. Although I always started with great intentions, I can’t remember a year that I actually kept any resolutions that I made, so why set myself up for failure, right? …Continue

Okay, I have to be honest with you, I am really writing this post to myself more than I am to you. And for those of you that know me personally, you know this is true! Since I have been home from the mountain, I have not done ANY exercising at all…nada….zero, zip, zilch. Why, you ask? It seemed like the perfect opportunity to keep a great thing going, right? Well, I can give you a gazillion…Continue

Some of you may have already started your journey back into the school year. Others may have a few weeks of summer left to enjoy. Here on Long Island, NY the children stalk the mailman anxiously awaiting word on teacher and classroom assignments. Whatever your situation, we hope this post will encourage all that it is never too late to get organized. There are times during the calendar year where getting organized simply makes more sense and the back-to-school time of year is certainly…Continue

Do you ever feel like you’re running on empty? Like you’re just treading water and not getting anywhere? Is the hum-drum of going about your day draining the life right out of you? It may be because you’re out of gas, spiritually, that is. To me, the most important part of my day is my quiet time. It is a chance for me to shut out the world and all its stresses and “fill up” by spending time alone with God. My quiet time grounds me and encourages me to face…Continue

Let me begin by asking a question. If you were going to start a business, would you just wake up one day and do it? Just open the doors without any planning and simply hope for the best? Or would you make a business plan, seek statistics and do all that you could to insure your investment would be well worth it? I am betting most of you agree that the second option would be the most effective. Yet, when it comes to planning our days, most of us typically…Continue

Terrific Tuesday - it is terrific to be able to use technology to take control of the to do list.
We all have things to do. We have projects at home, work and school. We must remember things to do for oursleves. our spouses, our childen, our work mates and our friends. Everyone has a different way of doing things. My husband for example has a pen and a bunch of little yellow legal pads. He writes everything down on one of his little pads…Continue

It's garage sale season! Our annual neighborhood garage sale was last week and we were out there hawking our stuff. I am the opposite of a hoarder. I like to purge, clean out, and organize whenever the mood strikes. I’ve moved a lot over the years so I’ve had many successful garage sales and some not so successful so I’ve learned a few things about what works and what doesn’t. It’s a great time of year to clean out that garage and basement, organize those…Continue

Sadie and Duke. Duke and Sadie. Those two names get said by me more than all of my other words put together it seems like. Working from home has given me a lot more quality time to spend with my dogs. I have also noticed that my dogs have taken over my house a wee bit. There are only two of them and they’re…Continue
After Christmas the real fun begins, the process of finding a location to store each and every single item the children received.
Everything that comes into the house must have a home; this is a huge rule in our house. If each and every little small thing that entered our house was just tossed somewhere our home would be clutter central and the chaos would soon follow. In order for every single item that enters your house to have a specific home you must…Continue

It's time to get organized (before the big guy shows up with more stuff)
This weekend I did one of my favourite things. I purged. I purged stuff. I mean toys, clothes, books, plastic containers, pots, papers, a rug, even a love seat. I do this often and I always feel lighter afterwards.
With a large growing family there…Continue

I started the last semester of my undergrad degree this week which means that my life is back to being not just busy, but hectic. As I look at all of the upcoming homework assignments for the next four months I go through a major panic attack. How am I going to do all of this homework, plus take care of my family, plus work, plus everything else I need/want to do? Read the rest here.
The recipe box. The binder. The online filing program. All are decent ways to keep my favorite recipes organized, but still I was dissatisfied. I found small, yet annoying problems that made me long for a better system.
The recipe box involved processing a torn out magazine page (cutting and gluing onto a 3x5 card, or worse yet...rewriting the recipe. (Gasp!) The binder system, even with…Continue
