Secrets of Success




I have had success in reducing clutter this way. When I walk into a room and see something that does not belong there, or that is out of place I take care of it right then. It is easier for me than letting things pile up and then having to spend much more time returning items to their rightful places.

More Information:

I think this habit has been developed by following the system for housework. There are a couple of teams here at spark for those who follow flylady.

  • Does anyone have tips for dealing with a husband who "collects" just about everything? We've been married only 8 years (2nd time for both of us) and I love him dearly, but could definitely do without the boxes and boxes of old newspaper clippings, years and years of magazines, 1,000 + videotapes of things he's recorded but will never look at again... I think you get the picture. Suggestions very welcome! - by MARITIMER3
  • That's really the best way to do it. I AGREE WHOLE HEARTEDLY. - by MIMIDOT
