Easily declutter your house with this checklist.
Take advantage of the extra time at home by getting your financial paperwork in order. Follow these simple 3 steps and if you have questions reach out and I'll be happy to answer them. 1. Grab 3 boxes and label with: SHRED, RECYCLE, TO BE FILED 2. Start sorting all lose papers, the mail, and all file drawers in your home into the boxes. 3. Review the "to file" box again and file the documents properly either by scanning or putting into an organized file cabinet. Keep in mind that so many of our payments receipts can be found electronically now, so keeping a lot of paperwork as backup isn't necessary in most cases. Of course, check with your accountant with any questions if you operate a small business. #affordableorganization #napo #clutterfree #organizingtips

How do I better store my jewerly collection? This is a typical question I get from clients. Women typically have a lot of jewelry because there are so many types from costume to diamonds. I typically start by recommending The Container Store Stackables line. You can buy just one or 10, it all depends on what you need. Look for sales and then buy just what you need in this great space savings option. #affordableorganization #containerstore #jewelrystorage

An excellent article to read when you are thinking about what to keep or giveaway to live a less cluttered life. I can attest to the high expense of junk removal, my clients are usually shocked by the cost they incur during the removal process. Advice: dispose of items as you don’t need along the way, don’t let them pile up in your home for years. Release them sooner rather than later!
Most of the stuff in your house is worthless. And eventually, someone, either you or your kids, will be tasked with getting rid of it.

This principle of time = money is a great way to think when making a purchase. I’ve done this for years when making a larger purchases and I’ve been teaching my girls this as well. Does anyone else think like this?
This is a life-changing principle. When we begin to see our purchases through the lens of exchanging life, rather than dollar bills, we begin to fully appreciate the weight of our purchases.
