1. Message of the Day


SET GOALS concerning the house. Is your desire to:
1. Get a particular area organized?
2. Get the whole house under control?
3. Maintain the house?
4. Establish new habits?

The key to reaching goals is:
• Be specific and detailed.
• Write it down.
• Be accountable to someone or a group (like an M.A. group.)
• Report your progress regularly.

Set a timer for ten minutes and attack a hot spot with a vengeance. Some call it The Ten Minute Tidy.

4. Family Reminder of the Day

In our family, we hang up the towels neatly after bathing.

In our family, we put what we need the next day by the front door the night before.

5. Quote of the Day

"The power of an attitude is amazing."

6. Question of the Day

Does your disorganized lifestyle interfere with your social or family life? Do you isolate yourself because of the clutter? If the clutter were gone, what would do you different from now to connect to people?

7. From the Trenches


I need someone to look after my work in the bedroom, because if I do it alone, I do it NOT :( My bedroom is full of trash, paper and clothes (dirty and clean), but I make my bed every Day! :) I have to clean all from the carpet, so that i can see this wonderful color (Deep Blue) again.
Please Help me.

Beate, Would you like to be clutter buddies to check on each others’ progress in the bedrooms? Mine is terrible, too. I have a lot to do there. I am just worried mine will take longer than yours if we start to compare. I have clean laundry, baby stuff, papers from when I used to just take them all off my desk to hide them, etc. I feel so bad because I am sharing with my kids, and it is so messy. I finally am working on it though! A little bit each day. We could check in once a week or more, if you want to.

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

Never underestimate the inevitability of gradualness.
