Cool Blog: My Simpler Life
I found this blog on the suggestion of a friend: http://www.mysimplerlife.com/blog/
There is a great "decluttering" calendar for those of you who wish to get "on top" of your clutter this year:
I had to chuckle a bit....if I follow the calendar to the letter, I will be decluttering the same 2 kitchen drawers all the time, but heck, maybe that is just what I need to do at this point in my life! I will say I feel so much "lighter" after declutter and prioritizing during the chaos that turned into our recent move. My manta became "don't leave the house without a box of items to donate" and for over 3 weeks, I never did! I have the donation receipts to prove it! Even since the move, we have started what I call the "donation box" that sits in the trunk of the van and we put things in it as we find we no longer need them and I plan to stop weekly (or sooner if the box gets too full) and drop the items off.
I also really like her idea of a "check in jar", although I am thinking I might compile my list of questions and just post them on the wall by the computer or in the bathroom or on my closet door:
