Declutter Decision Making Guide

Sometime I struggle with writing a new post every week, especially when I am not at home and don't really have any decluttering inspiration. Even at home these days I don't have a need to declutter all the time. So today I was sitting here trying to come up with some wisdom to impart to you all when it occurred to me that I have six years of posts that not everyone could be bothered ploughing through so why not use one of those again today. While digging around trying to come up with a post that I wanted to share I stumbled across my Declutter Decision Making Guide. And as this guide is Continue reading

Mini Mission Monday ~ One from the archives.

Mini Mission Monday is about finding ten minutes a day to declutter. To make it easy for you, each Monday I set seven declutter missions, one for each day of the week for you to follow.

Vacations can be more than just time away.

I love travelling. I love to visit other countries and see how other people live. I love the different weather, the different architecture, the different food, the different flora and fauna and... well just all the differences. I also love the sameness, how ultimately we are all just people with our strengths and our flaws. And one of the other things I love about travel is experiencing how little you really need in order to get by from day to day. Every time I travel I learn more about this. This time we are staying in a studio apartment. A small well equiped kitchen, a bathroom and a Continue reading

Calling all elementary (primary) school teachers

I received an email from an elementary school teacher, Rose Ann, a while back who needs help with keeping stuff under control in the classroom. Or maybe she even collects the stuff and keeps it around the house for when she needs it in class. She really didn't elaborate on that. But I digress. As I have little experience in classrooms these days I would like any elementary/primary school teachers, who might be reading, to share their experience on how they keep their school supplies under control. Here is her email. "Teachers save way too many things all the time. Do you have Continue reading

New Year ~ Less Clutter

Happy New Year to all my wonderful blog readers, old and new, may it be a wonderful year for you with less clutter, less stuff to take care of, and more time to do with what you like.
