1. Message of the Day


Life is good, too good to be spending it grappling with junk (oh, I mean valuable items of memories and potential treasures that other people may think are junk). Whether we call these items junk or not, they are junking up our lives. That is the important thing we need to consider.

Life is good. Our focus should be on enjoying our family and friends,on doing what makes us happy and helps others, on living a satisfying life full of grace and beauty, and of developing our spiritual lives.

Slow down a little. Breathe deeply. Think of what is really important to you. Dejunk your desires to keep too much. Loosen your grip on those ideas and feelings that keep you in the messy zone. Leaving petty interests behind, seek higher dreams until you find yourself saying,
"Yes, my life really is good. It's really good!"

3. Habit of the Day


Keep short accounts on putting things up as you work. As you cook, wash and dry your pots, pans, etc. or put them in the dishwasher as you go.

As you do a project, keep your tools and pieces corralled and put them away immediately.

When you clean, return cleaning products and tools immediately. Otherwise you will leave more mess behind than you clean up.

4. Family Reminder of the Day

In our family, we think ahead to solve problems before they happen.

In our family, we pay attention to maintaining beauty.

5. Quote of the Day

"When I face the desolate impossibility of writing five hundred pages, a sick sense of failure falls on me and I know I can never do it. This happens every
time. Then gradually I write one page and then another. One day's work is all I can permit myself to contemplate and I eliminate the possibility of never finishing."

John Steinbeck, Travels with Charlie.

Don't look at the whole big job.
Just concentrate on one day at a time.

6. Question of the Day

If your house were perfectly organized and lovely, what important thing would you do that you are not doing at this time? Is that goal worth working hard for?

Tell us by posting on Friends-of-The-Organizer-Lady.

7. From the Trenches 


I used to think of where I live as my "house". I found that when I started thinking of it as my "home" my motivation went up. I got more done. I actually found myself "wanting" to clean. I also find that I am prouder of my accomplishments in the decluttering process. Now, I still often fall into the "house" terminology. Habit, familiarity of feeling, etc causing that. So I try to keep reminding myself, this is my "home". When I scan the cleaned areas
I think "home". Like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz. "There's no place like *home*" I think that the term "house" is like "apartment". It implies a sense of
impermanence and ownership without pride. Sort of like "my pencil" "my shoes" etc. So maybe if we all start thinking of our residence as a "home" rather
than a "house" or "apartment" or "condo" or "trailer" the decluttering process might become easier.
