Getting Rid of Clutter (Part 2)
Yes, this is Part 2 of my post discussing this book "It's All Too Much" and implementing my mission to de-clutter our house and my life.
Unfortunately, I deleted my previous post about this while doing my "blog transformation". I should have left it, but you know how you do some stupid things when you are PMSing and upset at something...well, I did just that - stupidly deleted a post I should not have deleted.
Anyway, here's the Part 2 of this "Getting Rid of Clutter" series here on my blog. This episode is called" Excuses, Excuses (corresponds to chapter 2 of the book).
Pete Walsh listed 10 excuses people use when confronted with clutter in their home and offices. He offered explanations and help to overcome each of these:
1. I might need it someday
2. It's too important to let go
3. I can't get rid of it - it's worth a lot of money
4. My house is too small
5. I don't have the time
6. I don't know how it got like this
7. It's not a problem - my husband/wife/partner/child just thinks it is
8. It isn't mine
9. It's too overwhelming
I was planning to do a more detailed sharing, but I couldn't get it to a reasonable size post. It will be long as there are many important things to ponder and consider. So I really recommend that you purchase the book (no, i do not get a commission, I just really think it's helpful)...
I'll try to post more later.. maybe in part 3 (or I might just add some more here). In the meantime, visit Rocks in My Dryer for more Works For Me Wednesday Posts.
