Clearing Out the Clutter
In Clutter's Last Stand, Aslett suggests, "Getting the clutter out of your life can and will rid you of more discouragement, tiredness, and boredom than anything else you can do." Ask yourself, how many things are you holding onto just in case you need them? Make a plan to go through your whole house slowly (maybe one room a week). Don't look upon the cleaning as a chore but as a chance to let "the new" into your life. Get rid of things that are no longer of use such as pens out of ink, expired medicine, outdated foods, old perfume or makeup, clothes that might fit someday. Remember, just because you bought it once doesn't mean you have to keep it forever.
