Relocating Items, Repositioning, And Stacking, Is Not Decluttering
Members Were Sparked
FlyLady has a saying: You Can't Organize Clutter. Although you CAN organize clutter you're wasting your time. Your belongings have to FIT in the space available, in a peaceful unclogged manner.
Have 2 trash bags ready (black so you can't see through them to remove items).Take the Trash out immediately when the timer goes off, & take the Donate bag to the car immediately, so both are OUT of your home. You haven't decluttered until the items leeeeeeeeeave (cont'd).
Put the Keep items in a laundry basket, & before you go to bed go thru ea room dropping off items, & picking up anything that doesn't belong. Empty it B4 bed. Put small things that need to be glued or mended in a small basket by the phone, so you can do them during your next phone conversation.

I cut all the coupons out of magazines, papers and all the free online coupon sites. The items I do not intend to use I put beside the product so that I can help others save money. I have bought products that were on sale and someone else was nice enough to leave their coupon.
Do not purchase items just because you have a coupon if you would not normally purchase the item.
Target.com has coupons on their site that you can stack with manufacture coupons PLUS you can use these on their clearance items. You score free items or things for just cents. I have tons of Nivea body wash for free...so can you! Go to their site and print their coupons!!!
I am a huge Target shopper, I am lucky to be able to shop 4 different stores in my area. I have always loved their clearances but did you know you can use coupons to score really cheap things and also get free items. On their site they have coupons that you can stack with manu coupons to save more
Of all the organizational tips on Spark, no one mentions what is my best desk organizing method. Keep your work in stacks. When one of my first bosses saw my cluttered desk, he said, "A cluttered desk is the sign of a cluttered mind". My response to His method was, "So what does an empty desk tell you?" That jammed him for the few minutes I took to explain. I do my work, and if it's not complete because I'm waiting on someone else, I put it in a stack and I Know where it is. I go straight to the
right stack and pick up what I was working on. I save time by not "filing and un-filing" it. My desk at home is the same, but my wife is a compulsive filer. After she filed all of my stacks, I couldn't find what I needed for weeks. We now let each other "file" the way that works best for each of us.
