Flylady Tips: You Can't Organize Clutter!!
The problem is that we bring the STUFF (Something That Undermines Family Fun) home with us every single day...bit by bit. And that's the only way to reasonably get rid of the stuff too--in small increments of time. FlyLady says we DO HAVE TIME. We just need to spend 15 minutes a day--every day. Little by little, like magic, the clutter disappears!! Organizing after that is super easy!
It was from FlyLady that I learned a very important truth--YOU CAN'T ORGANIZE CLUTTER! Our problem is rarely an organizational problem--it's a STUFF and CLUTTER problem! If you take nothing else away from my blog, please get this firmly embedded in your mind,"I do have time..I do have time. 15 minutes of throwing away, giving away etc is not too much to do!" Make it part of your morning routine. (See mine in my side bar.)
Let me know which room you will work on this week! I'll be checking my emails from the tournament. I'm planning to spend 15 minutes a day in my bedroom...when I get home of course!! Maybe I'll start in my purse, but that shouldn't take more than 15 minutes...should it?? Yipes!!
