I recently saw an idea I love,,, put a stickers on items that are seldom used items..if you use it, wear it, move it, or touch it...take the sticker off.... it means you get to keep it for another year... if the sticker is still on the item..after 6 months...get rid of it. We are all collector of things,, myself included (love snowmen!!)...but how many snowmen do I really need... is all that "stuff" really necessary?? Is it contributing to my enjoyment or ease in life?? I plan on trying the "sticker" challenge and see just how much I can really live without and how much clutter I keep around for my own personal need.......How much simpler could your life be??

How clutter filled is your life???
With the new year always comes the hopes of losing weight or getting organized, or getting your finances in order. Is it because we look at a new year as a clean sheet, a blank page to write our future, document our progress or just design a new lifestyle? Not sure what your new year will bring, but mine is the ongoing process of trying to pare down my life to get it to a simple, less cluttered place. I live in a very little house, with lots of stuff and the need to be very organize and utilize all the space I have, which is very little. I've tried for years and continue to give, throw and donate things I don't use anymore.
