Here's another clutter busting article I recently read. There's something reassuring knowing EVERYONE has clutter. Knowing it's okay. Within reason. I have been taking steps daily to reduce ours.
Some things that seem to be working:
~reading mail at trash can
~only buying what we are 100% out of at the store. I am in town daily anyway. Great excuse to indulge in one of my guilty pleasures and that's visiting with people I know in the grocery aisle.
~set the table(s). Our kitchen and dining room tables have been catch alls. I have the kitchen one sat for next meal and dining room seasonally decorated, so far that is keeping the majority of things from landing there.
~being a "FlyLady" follower, I try to shine my sink at night. For me that's not actually the sink, it's a 30 second pick up in the living room, kitchen and bathrooms but those things help make mornings a little brighter.
If you've read the book, let me know your thoughts,
