1. Message of the Day


Losing things is so frustrating for Messies that they feel compelled to make every effort to make things easy to find. 

American men take an average of 8 minutes and women take 7 minutes a week looking for the TV remote. Six minutes is the average time Americans take looking for car keys before going to work. 

While average neat folks are somewhat frustrated when they can't find something it is twice as bad for Messies for two reasons. 

  1. Messies have trouble seeing what they are looking for. Because they are often not as visually capable as others, many Messies fail to see what they are looking for even though the item they are looking for may be in sight to others. 
  2. Messies lack patience for the search. Organized people seem to have a patient persistence unknown to Messies. They are willing to spend time flipping through paper after paper when the tendency of the Messie is to give up earlier. The Messie wants to give up quickly and either lets it go entirely or buys another of the missing item. 

Because finding things is so frustrating for the Messie, she must get and stay organized in order to avoid the chronic stress of looking for things. 

Give yourself the gift of order. 

2. Did You Know? 

You may have noticed that the NEW and IMPROVED KISS Flipper is now available for purchase on the Messies website again.

We have completely re-packaging this helpful tool!

The Keep It Super Simple Flipper concept remains the same. It still has helpful and fun job cards, but it is repackaged into a smaller overall size and at a better price!!

And, probably the best news is that you don't have do anything at all to set it up. It is completely ready to use as soon as you take it out of the mailer!

Wow!! Great News!!

3. Habit of the Day

Based on the TV Ten Second Tidy. Include your family 
or work alone. Set a timer and all rush around tidying 
for ten minutes. This will work miracles. 

4. Family Reminder of the Day 

Pick one of these reminders or make one of your own to share with your family each day. 

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

In our family, we make sure all trash goes into the trash basket. We pick it up if it misses. 

5. Quote of the Day 

"As one goes through life, one learns that if you don't paddle your own canoe, you don't move." 

Katherine Hepburn 

6. Question of The Day 

Are you willing to make daily small sacrifices in order to achieve the long rang goal you want? Name one organizational thing you really don't want to do but are willing to do daily in order change your life. 

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

7. From the Trenches 


I now know I will NEVER go back. 

I now can imagine Mr. Potential actually stepping through my door. 

I now can imagine my friends actually stepping through my door. 

I now can imagine clients actually stepping through my door. 

I now am asking myself, how did this all start? How did I get so disconnected from my life? 

In answer to that one, I know now that clutter, for me and possibly/probably others, is a sign of a depressed life, a life that is oppressed and dragged down and not fully capable of being all that it was meant to be. And I want all my friends and support system to know that. And if they ever find my house cluttered again, I want them to sit me down and look into my eyes and find out what is really wrong.
