Write your own advice

We just bought another book about clutter. It’s called Clutter Rehab—101 Tips and Tricks to Become an Organization Junkie and Love It!.

Laura Wittmann, the author, makes a lot of good suggestions—101 of them, of course. Many of them seem like common sense or are tips we’ve heard before:

  • Do not keep more than three months’ backlog of magazine articles.
  • If you haven’t used something for a year, get rid of it.
  • Have a donation station.

However, Wittmann organizes a lot of information in a easy-to-read book with one tip on each page.  And she makes some good points.  One of our favorites is: “If you aren’t using something and it isn’t bringing a smile to your face every time you see or use it, why are you hanging onto it?”

What’s the message? If you read a book and say smugly I knew most of this already, then it’s time for you to write your own suggestions.  Write your own advice, and then take action.
