Organizing your Stuff!

Click on this link for the 30 Day Organizational Challenge!

Have problems with clutter and organizing your "stuff"?

Check out - I am an Organizing Junkie, enjoying one pile of clutter at a time.
Oprah has information from a professional clutter-buster, Peter Walsh.
Stay at Home Mom & Professional Organizer has lots of great advice.
How about "Taking Charge" of your life with tips on organizing and life coaching/time management?

There are probably hundreds of web sites for organizing, so here's my last one to offer. Check out Organized Mom.
My whole issue with clutter is that dreaded "getting started" and what to do with all the "family" possessions that have emotions tied to it. Help!! I will need a professional to aid with the "sticking to the rules". Anyone close by who is willing to help? I am truly embarrassed that my house is so full of stuff (I have the wonderful excuse of saying..... but, here in Florida I have no basement, no attic, very few closets......). Just think if I had all that extra space, it would be full of stuff by now too!!.
So how do you have the time to de-clutter? Here's one way - a piece of advice for all us addicted to the laptop - Change one habit - like reading emails - what do you think?

So in my first attempt alone, here's the before pictures (pay no attention to the full size Ricky Craven poster, that's only one of hundreds of his memorabilia I have). I will have a "finished" picture next weekend. Cheer me on!

Luke 12:14-16 (NIV)
14:Jesus replied, "Man, who appointed me a judge or an arbiter between you?" 15:Then he said to them, "Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; a man's life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions."
Check out the Bible small group study at Crown.org. Excellent for learning more about handling money and "stuff".

LOL! I was wondering who that guy was, and why you had a big poster of him!

I've got the opposite trouble... I throw stuff out that I shouldn't! None of the clothes I own are older than 2 years (note: I buy very cheap clothes!!!), photos are the only real memorabilia I have of our life!
