Here are a few of the tips I learned from this eBook.
- Being clutter free means everything has a place and everything is in its place.
- Everything should have a purpose (functional or emotional).
- If it doesn’t have a purpose, it is clutter.
- If you buy a new item, you should get rid on one like item to prevent clutter from growing.
- Make de-cluttering fun by listening to music, watching TV, or getting someone to help you.
- Make your organizational system user friendly.
- Consolidate like items into one area.
Today is Gwen’s first day of class at Calhoun Community College. I have some tips and advice that I would love to share with her. However, I can’t just tell her my advice. I am a blogger, so it has to go in a post.
- If you need help with a class, don’t be ashamed to ask.
- Stay positive, if you keep working at it you will complete your degree.
- Attendance is important, so try to be there as much as possible.
- Get involved in campus life. Find a club or organization to join, attend some of the sporting events, plays, debates, and special lectures that are available at the college.
- Learn the material. Study it until you understand it.
- Don’t be in a hurry and do your best.
- Don’t procrastinate, have a plan to complete assignments ahead of schedule.
- Pay attention during class and take notes. If the teacher says something is important, write it down and underline it.
- Keep your notes, assignments, and study materials organized.
- Make some new friends and have fun during your college years.
I prefer to work in front of a window. I enjoy the natural light and having something to look at while I am concentrating on a topic. I also like my workspace to be neat and organized. Clutter on my desk gets on my nerves and makes it hard to focus.
I am curious, how do you like your workspace?
I took an empty Kleenex box and covered it with decorative tape (it looks cool and makes the box stronger). I am using the box as a storage container for plastic bags. It’s a great way to keep them organized and easily assessable.
The book “Clutter Free Living” was written by Leslie Rockett and it is a handy resource to have in your home. It contains organizing tips and creative storage ideas. Some of the ideas were rather inventive. The book contains step-by-step instructions for decluttering the whole house.
I give this book an A+
