Top 10 Ways to Organize
and Simplify Your Life

In the words of Henry David Thoreau, Simplify,
Simplify. Here are the Get Organized Now!
Top 10 ways to organize and simplify your life.
LESS IS MORE.
It's more important to have a few nice things
that you truly enjoy, than to just have lots
of stuff. Say goodbye to things that don't fit,
are out of style or are unflattering. This goes
for clothing, furniture, knick knacks, and
other possessions you're not happy with.
CONSOLIDATE CREDIT CARDS.
Most stores take Visa, MasterCard and American
Express. Pay off your other credit cards, and
in the future use only one or two of these
major credit cards. Or, if possible, use cash
or your ATM card for purchases.
Don't spend more time cooking. Just make more
when you cook. Rather than cooking enough for
one dinner, make enough for at least two
dinners. Refrigerate and freeze the extra
portion and you'll have another meal another
night, with no extra work.
SCREEN YOUR CALLS.
Let your answering machine take all your phone
calls, and return calls on your time.
DON'T SWEAT THE SMALL STUFF.
Don't allow trivial matters to aggravate you.
If the milk spills, wipe it up and move on to
more important things.
Don't try to do everything yourself. Split up
household responsibilities among family members.
Delegate to your staff. Outsource projects,
repairs and so on.
DON'T TRY TO REMEMBER EVERYTHING.
There's no need to store it in your memory.
Write it down, and write it in one place so
that you can find it easily.
WATCH TV ON YOUR TERMS.
If your favorite program isn't on at a
convenient time, use your VCR and record it.
Then, watch it when you want to--without all
DON'T OVER-SCHEDULE YOUR CHILDREN.
Too many activities can cause a strain on
your children, and you!
PLAN EACH DAY.
Spend 10 minutes each night, planning for
tomorrow. You'll be focused and ready to take
on the world each morning!
