As overwhelmed people we tend to focus on trying to juggle an over-committed schedule, or trying to manage an overwhelming amount of paper, clutter, or tasks. A simplified life is a process, here are few tips that can help you begin your journey. Try 1 or all 3, remember inch by inch is a cinch. (Take baby steps…call me if you need any support.)
Say “NO”: We have all been in the same boat; sometimes it is hard to say “no.” Try this, before committing, take a peek at your calendar and determine if you really have the time. If you can–great! If you cannot, politely but firmly say “no.” Remember a firm “yes” is far better than a resentful “no.”
In with the NEW and Out with the OLD: You can start with a category, as I did. I promised if I buy a pair of shoes, I will also give up a pair of shoes. I started with shoes and slowly took on each category within my wardrobe. Doing this is such a tremendous help. It keeps me from over cluttering, and also from buying frivolous items.
Prevent Junk Mail/Catalogs: Junk mail may never completely disappear but you can at least cut the amount of mail sent to your home. A great way to prevent some of it from coming to your home is to check out these links: visit DMAchoice to opt out of marketing offers and ads; submit a request through Opt Out Prescreen to stop receiving offers of pre-approved credit cards and insurance; and use Catalog Choice to get your name off of catalog mailing lists.
