We went to the Tax Preparer last night with lots of trepidation. We expected to have to pay quite a bit to the government. Much to our surprise, we didn't owe nearly as much as we thought we would!! Plus we actually got a little bit back from the State. All in all, not a bad deal!

3 myths of de-cluttering

Monday, February 27, 2012

1. “I need to keep this as a memento of a happy time.” True, remembering happy times in the past gives you a big happiness boost in the present. But ask yourself: Must I keep all these T-shirts to remind me of college, or can I keep just a few? Do I need 50 finger paintings by my toddler, or is one enough? Mementos work best when they’re carefully chosen—and when they don’t take up much room.
2. “I need to keep this, because the person who gave it to me might visit my house and be hurt when it’s not on display.” Is this scenario really likely?
3. “If I have any available space, I should fill it up with something.” Preserve some empty areas. One of the Secrets of Adulthood is “Somewhere, keep an empty shelf.” I know where my empty shelf is, and I treasure it.

    I don't think this way... this is why I don't have much. To me, less is more. It's also easier to clean the place.

    Life kept simple makes life more simple. We can always declutter "stuff" but thank goodness we always have room for memories.
Have a good Monday and clutter it up with only good healthy choices!!
