I've been lurking behind the scenes for a few weeks since my step daughters death trying to process it all. It seems my life is very cluttered at the moment and I'm not sure WHERE to begin to CLEAR it all up. Before Chris died I had just won "Clutter Rehab". I really wasn't sure what I was going to do with it besides skim through for a quick fix or two. This book has been SO good though...I'm not completely done with it yet but I've got about 15-20 of the 101 tips ear marked.
My main issues are 1) dealing with the PILES of "paper" clutter that seem to be stressing me out every 3 months when I just can't stand them anymore. I made this cool file folder pocket system for my fridge and within 1 day it all fell apart...ugh. It was going to hold our outgoing mail, incoming mail and magazines in 3 different slots. I've GOT to come up with some type of system. My husband just finished me out an AWESOME office and I'm never in there because of all the clutter. My second main issue is I want to get organized so I can coupon efficiently. I haven't been a big couponer but I joined the grocery game and have the Sunday paper ordered so I can give it a whirl and see how it goes. I'm going to attempt to put together some type of coupon binder system...hopefully that will work better for me.
I heard the coolest thing the other day - I love to be organized but don't like "maintaining" my organization...that fits me to a 'T'.
I've noticed when I'm overwhelmed with my clutter...my mind seems to be in a cluttery fog too.
