Xi Fa Cai!
Happy New Year to our Chinese readers. Especially so, since I learnt this
week that my book "no more clutter" has just appeared in Chinese
translation. I haven't seen it yet, but if you do see it on-line, please
send me a link!
a March Deadline
At the moment
I'm enjoying working with a number of clients who are moving home. Having
a looming deadline and the desire to start the next phase of their lives
without a mountain of clutter makes it much easier to declutter quickly
and without regrets.
Remember the last time you had to write a report due in the next day,
choose a last-minute present or clean up when guests are due in an hour?
With no time to agonise or be self critical I bet you simply got on with
the job. I'm not suggesting you leave all your decluttering until the
last moment, but I do think it helps to have definite goals and fixed
deadlines to work towards.
For March try the following:
a dinner party in a few weeks - that will motivate you to clear your
living/dining area. Who knows you could even dust off or donate some
of your cookbook library or recycle the hundreds of pasta recipes you've
torn out of magazines!
a guest to stay at the end of the month - that gives you time to turn
your junk room back into a lovely spare room.
- Plan a
Spring treat - maybe a spa day or a special dinner date - then raise
the cash by selling online on Ebay, at auction or organise a car boot
sale with a friend now warmer days are approaching. Start filling those
boxes with unwanted toys, crockery and bric-a-brac now.
imagine you were due to move home in April - would you really keep all
those old magazines, tatty paperbacks and general junk. No No No........
Dither, Decide!" will help you make those snappy decisions.
If books are piling up everywhere why not visit www.GreenMetropolis.com
and sell your excess.
