1. Message of the Day - TORPEDOING WORDS

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.

2. Did You Know?

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 - NOT HAVING A YARD SALE

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.
