1. Message of the Day

Keep Britain Tidy

The "Keep Britain Tidy" campaign launched across the big
pond is designed to encourage citizens to stop throwing their 
candy wrappers from the car or leaving their beer cans in 
parking lots.

Governments, both here and abroad, agree that neatness is 
necessary for a good quality of life. All citizens are expected 
to agree and the few who don't will be fined or at least glared at.

Cigarette smoke and clutter are alike in that they pollute 
another person's living space. Wherever people live in the 
same space, cluttering up someone else's visual space is impolite.

Think about how true this is. Change your own behavior or 
use it as you regard the behavior of others in your house. 
Maybe you will want to start your own campaign with slogans 
and signs around the house.

5 Days to a Clutter Free House

Here is an excerpt from the Introduction.

"What You Need to Know to Get Started


Have you ever wanted to be on one of those clean-up-your-mess-in-a-jiffy reality TV shows? That would be so quick  and easy, you think. I wish they could come to my house.

Now you can have the same experience - only better. You'll be the producer, assembling the crew and orchestrating the whole show. No strangers in the house. No embarrassment with cameras. No inconvenient timetable. Just good results. 

A neat, organized house in a remarkable quick time."

With this systematic, team-based approach, even the most 
overwhelming de-cluttering job becomes doable.

We have taken $2.00 off the retail price for our readers!

3. Habit of the Day

Put shoes on at the beginning of every day AND put them in 
the closet at the end of the day. No more tripping over them 
because they are lying on the floor.

No more limitations like not taking the trash out because "I 
don't have my shoes on."

No more shoes sitting in the living room or around the house.

No more feeling like you are not really ready to work.
--------------------------------------

4. Family Reminder of the Day

In our family, we don't drop our things when we come in the 
door. We take them and put them where they belong.

In our family, we put dirty clothes into the hamper as soon as 
we take them off.
----------------------------------------

5. Quote of the Day


"Good fences make good neighbors."

Robert Frost


Set boundaries. 
Determine your priorities, make sure you and others in your life respect what you are doing. 
Keep those boundaries clear.


6. Question of The Day

What is one success you can "brag" about? We would all

if you share it.

7. From the Trenches

It's ok to build "castles in the air". We just have to put a 
foundation under them. Fifteen minutes at a time. Baby 
Steps. I'm reclaiming my bedroom. I could have just wished 
for it or dreamed about how nice it would be. I am actually 
doing it! The job looks overwhelming.

I broke it down into fifteen minute jobs. Already I can see 
it changing. I clear a spot. I clean that spot. I move on to 
the next spot. Yes, there will be lots of fifteen minute sessions 
to do. When I'm done, there will be my bedroom, all clear and 
clean, beautiful, inviting, well worth having and maintaining. 
You can do it. Choose a spot. Do fifteen minutes. Just start!
