Here's a little challenge, now that it's yard sale season: try to find a yard sale without a stock of organizing products for sale.
Too often, we start a get-organized effort where we should finish it: at the store. Buying organizing products before we've done the heavy lifting of setting up activity centers, sorting and purging our stuff, and deciding where to pare down leads to that paradoxical result: organizer clutter.
Does clutter-cutting ebb and flow according to your frustration level? Pull the sting: add regular declutter sessions to your calendar. Approaching problem areas in a calm frame of mind boosts decision-making energies.
