1. Message of the Day


Let us imagine that you have decided to dejunk an area. 
As you go about making decisions you find these unproductive  words recurring in your thinking, urging you to keep the very things that are cluttering up your life.
  • MIGHT - As in "I might need that later."
  • COULD - As in "Somebody could use that."
  • MAYBE - Like "Maybe I will think of something to do with this."
  • OUGHT - Like "I ought to read this book."
  • SHOULD - "Somebody should preserve this for posterity."
These short little words will torpedo your resolve if you let them stay in your thinking. They may be true but they don't  apply to your situation. Be alert to their destructive force.  Don't let them determine your action -- or lack of action.

3. Habit of the Day

Leave each area as good as you found it, or better.

4. Family Reminder of the Day

In our family, we put up toys, games, tools, and stuff we 
are using immediately.

In our family, we don't leave things out just because we 
plan to get back to the project later.

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

5. Quote of the Day

Anything is possible with hard work.

Eleanor McMillen Brown

7. From the Trenches


My aim is to achieve a level of neatness, organization, 
simplicity, whatever you want to call it that would allow my family the same dignity.

I hope that I am already making successful steps in that 
direction. This past weekend was the big flea market in our area and of course I went to it. I bought socks. No toys, books, makeup, cheap jewelry, or other junk, all I bought was socks for my kids. They needed socks (what kid doesn't??) and I got 3 pairs for $1. (Yes they are new!) I did not go to ANY yard sales or thrift shops. I did not go scavvin', as we call it around here.

I did go on freecycle and offer some things which have been 
claimed. I am not planning on having a yard sale. I think that I can achieve junk freedom more quickly if I simply toss or give the stuff away. My sanity and self-respect are more valuable to me than the few dollars I might get from the hassle of a yard sale. Don't get me wrong. I sure could use those few dollars. I just think that I can more wisely utilize what I have by dejunking.
