Getting a Grip





















My sister sent me pictures of her "last day of the year" project for 2005: cleaning out the narrow closet where she stashes wrapping paper, boxes, ribbons, and a variety of decorations.
I can't believe all that stuff was in there to begin with!
The end result: less stuff, more organization, and starting the new year with a "handle" on one small corner of your life.
There, now doesn't that feel good?

    Could you send your sister over to my house to clean my closets?

    I cleaned out a couple of closets last week... Now I guess I'm ready for a new year. Maybe I will try again with that herb garden. How hard can it be???

    I'm with Paula! Could I ever use the help! A corner at a time...I like that thinking.

    Happy New Year!

    How DO we accumulate all that stuff?!

    My other sister says the key to freedom from too much stuff is "moving frequently, and into a smaller place each time". I think she may be onto something....

    What a BIG change. I can't stand too much clutter! It drives me nuts. My family is not organized at all, so I compromise, but I prefer a neat, tidy house.
