Clutter Rx - Your Prescription for an Organized Life  
   
 
   
   
    Tips
 
Home Office

  • Schedule 30 minutes weekly to pay bills. Don’t wait until they’re due, you could be
         hit with a late fee.

  • Put reminders and invitations immediately on your calendar and toss.
  • Set aside 15-30 minutes daily to go through the mail and sort, toss and/or file.
         Eliminate it before you store it. Open mail at the trash can and toss junk
         mail, expired oupons, old greeting cards, invitations to past events. Shred those
         credit card offers – identity theft is the number one crime in America.


  • Kitchen

  • Avoid overcrowding cabinets – you don’t need multiple items of the same
         thing. Chances are you’ll never use them all at the same time.
  • Create long term storage areas – keep seasonal items like the turkey
         roaster, holiday dishware and linens, summer barbeque equipment – away
         from primary  work centers.
  • Clear off kitchen counter tops. Keep only those items you use regularly
         like the coffee maker and toaster.

    Closet

  • Think vertical...double tier closet rods. Stock the shelves with clear, labeled,
         plastic containers for shoes, purses, scarves.
  • Go through every items in your closet and purge anything that has not been worn
         in two years, or may never fit you again!
  • Relocate off season clothes to a guest bedroom, attic or basement.
  • Keeping items because they cost you good money, is costing you more in
         wasted space, frustration at not finding what you need when you need it. Clear
         them out of  your closet and your mind.


    Remember, getting and staying organized is attainable as long as the systems
    you create work for your individual lifestyle and situation.
     
     
     

    “Ellen not only helped me get rid of the clutter in my house, but the clutter in my head as a result of the chaos surrounding me.  I walk into the rooms we have tackled together and exhale as opposed to shutting the door and telling myself “I”ll get to it later”.  Denise Y
