Tip(s) of the Day

Multiple laundry baskets or bags make sorting laundry easy -- sort your laundry an item at a time, and then as each basket gets full, do that load of laundry.

If you have a scanner, scan bills or other documents you might want to keep as you get them. At the end of the year, you can make a CD that has all important documents on it, labelled with that year, instead of having a huge filing cabinet.

Mark all the clothes in your closet with a clothespin, a safety pin, or some other mark. After six months to a year, donate whichever clothes you haven't used unless there is a good reason to keep them (formal wear for special circumstances, sentimental value, etc.).


Also, what websites or services have you found to be helpful in your decluttering or simplifying goals? I know www.flylady.com gets tossed around a lot, and at least one friend has found www.paytrust.com to be helpful in simplifying bill paying. Many people have been really successful in using FreeCycle as a way to less wastefully declutter.

Are there other sites or services you have found helpful? If so, please comment and I will try to get links up for them at some point soon.

What a great idea about scanning bills. I would have NEVER thought of it. Especially with my husband having his own busines! Instead of tons of files, I can keep just one CD! Thanks for the tip DOM!
You're welcome. Do we know each other, though?
It has been awhile. Mecca on isca. Married to Brian (Yuri). We met a few years ago at a nic. Hadn't seen you for awhile though.
