1. Message of the Day - ZAP HINDRANCES

In organizing,  one disorganized thing leads to another.
Slowly a long train of undone jobs develops.

Example: You cannot move the dishes out of the sink or off the counter because the dishwasher is full.

Example: You can't reach the Christmas decorations because there is too much clutter in the way.

Example: You can't make the bed because there are clothes lying on the bed you haven't hung up. You haven't hung them up because the closet is crowded with items you haven't weeded out as yet.

Yes, it is true. One disorganized thing leads to another. Zap hindrances before they develop. Keep on top of one clutter and an organized life will flow more easily.

Make one de-cluttering goal to complete by the end of the day. 

Maybe it will be to clear the surfaces near the front door. 
Or perhaps clear coffee table and sofa end tables so that they shine!

4. Family Reminder of the Day

In our family, we dry, fold, and put up our clothes as one continuous job.

In our family, we make sure all trash goes into the trash basket.

5. Quote of the Day

Yesterday is a canceled check;
tomorrow is a promissory note;
today is the only cash you have.
Spend it wisely.

7. From the Trenches - NORMAL

I started cleaning houses to learn how to clean. I am extremely good at scrub cleaning but still have to work at organizing things and throwing things away and giving things a home. It took me 10 years to relearn and change my messy habits. My attachment to pieces of paper and stuff is a nightmare I do not have to daily live anymore. I am "free" to throw something away and realize I may need it later, but if I do, the pain of not having something is not as bad as not being able to find anything.

My house is not immaculate by any means, but if you said you'd be over in thirty minutes, I would not go ballistic or get in a tizzy. I can now have people over without embarrassment. I am more normal now than ever and when I die, my children won't have to just throw everything away. They can go through and pick what they like before the rest get there :). Thank you for your interest.
Sincerely,  Gayle

Got a messy room that never gets better?
John said, I’ve had the messiest room for the last year.  In one session my room is no longer messy. It’s more organized than it’s ever been.


Please memorize this slogan and post it on your wall.

The secret to success is making very small, yet very consistent, changes.

Or to make it short; Baby steps, baby steps in the right direction.
