What do these items have in common? They are all items I have been asked for in a hurry in the last week. I was able to put my hands on them within minutes. The item that needed to be glued- was glued incorrectly and quickly needed tweezers to pull out the incorrectly glued item; the band-aid for a worker who cut his finger; the scissors to cut a bag open; the screwdriver to repair something my neighbor needed were all easy to find because they all have homes and I know where they live. Here is a challenge for you. In 10 minutes or less could you find the following: house keys, tweezers, pen, your checkbook, glasses, a AA battery, needle nose pliers, your birth certificate, your passport, the instructions for your iPod, medical records, umbrella, camera, safety pins, sales receipt for your printer, spare light bulbs, car registration, your last year’s tax returns, your favorite soup recipe? Clutter can cost you time, money, your job, your reputation, your space, your creativity, your relationships, your peace of mind, and your health. If you have clutter in your life, now is the time to do something about it.
