I was reading through Megan Spears post about our organizer meeting, and how we were sharing our own personal clutter challenges. I was there too, it was a great reality check and open communication about clutter. Guess what? Everyone has it to some extent, and if you learn to deal with it and laugh at yourself you won’t lose your mind. 🙂
I am instigating a challenge, it’s only fair I offer up my personal challenge first. And for me: it’s PAPER. Good gracious I struggle with this naturally, which is probably why I love to help other people with it! Our society is supposed to be going the way of “paperless”, but we are also in the age of information overload! Internet, books, audio, podcasts, newspapers, mail, advertisements, magazines, oh my! There is so much information in our world that you could never get to it all in a lifetime! So much to know and learn, so little time! I have dealt with my paper woes by dealing with the stuff on a daily basis. I also love David Allen’s “Getting Things Done” approach, as well as tips from zenhabits.net.So, I’m putting out a challenge to my fellow organizers and you, dear readers:
What’s YOUR personal clutter challenge, and how do you deal with it?
