Okay I just want to give a shout out to all of you who participated in last month’s challenge. What a great job you did, I was blown away on more than one link that is for sure. Thank you so much for joining in. Are you ready to do it again this month?
First though I need to announce the FIVE winners of the book Throw Out Fifty Things. The winners are:
Ally from Ally’s Corner
Liz from Hoosier Homemade
Michelle from Leaving Excess
Buffie from Pillaging With Buffie
Sara from Twice as Nice
Congrats ladies! Please email me with your addresses and we’ll get that out to you lickety split.
Now let’s get ready as we move into getting our vehicles organized for the summer months. It’s not just about cleaning them out (although that’s a definite bonus!) but also about planning and preparing some storage solutions so we are prepared for whatever life throws our way. Many of us spend a lot of time in our vehicles so why not make them as efficient as possible so we can reduce last minute panic and workload.
Sticking with the book theme for another month, this month’s prize is a book by Organizing Expert, Julie Morgenstern called When Organizing Isn’t Enough – SHED Your Stuff, Change Your Life.
Organizing works when you know where you’re going but don’t know how to get there. But sometimes organizing isn’t enough. When you’re eager to make a change in your life, but you’re unsure of your new destination, you need to SHED. But it’s not just about throwing things away! The SHED process is more about what comes before and after you heave the clutter, so that changes you make really stick in the long term.
Learn how to:
• Separate the treasures – What is truly worth hanging on to?
• Heave the trash – What’s weighing you down?
• Embrace your – Who are you without your stuff?
• Drive Yourself Forward – Which direction connects to your genuine self?
SHEDing is a process for decluttering your life to make room for change. By letting go of the tangible clutter in your physical space and schedule, you gain the clarity, energy and insight to discover what’s next. Read the first chapter here.
