This weeks Homework- mail pile

I can only help so much in organizing your house, I believe there are some things that need to be done by you, homework I like to call it. I just can't go through that mail stack, junk drawer, toy chest, or those kitchen gadgets. I can't know what you want to keep or throw away, only you do. So while organizing I will ask my clients to do homework till the next time I come.
I figured not everyone is close enough to have me come help them or just can't do it. So I thought I could start a weekly homework to share with everyone to help them start getting organized and clutter free. I can't tell you how nice it is to only have in my house what I need, nothing extra.
So this weeks homework is to go through that mail stack, you know the one sitting on your counter taking up space. We all have those spots were all your mail, magazines, school notes and junk goes. I will admit I have one too. Mine is a tray given to me by my mother in law. It started as my coupon spot, but now holds all kinds of stuff. So every few weeks I go through it and do some purging of expired coupons and such.
One thing that usually doesn't sit in there is mail. Everyday when I pick up the mail I go through it and I urge you to also. Don't just stack it up, GO THROUGH IT DAILY. Put your bills where they go. Put junk in the recycle bin. And hang up any invites or things you need to see on your command center.
Have any questions please let me know and I can't wait to see what how you do. Find me on Facebook over at MY mission is YOUR organization.

MY mission is YOUR organization

I have started a new Facebook page, MY mission is YOUR organization.
I have gotten my house so organized there is nothing left to do so I am taking a run at helping others get their houses organized. Also this includes some house cleaning.
So stop by and become a fan.

Riding is like...

On a long ride if I was in a car I would be looking at facebook on my phone or texting one of my sister, but on the back of the bike I just have lots of time to think. Like..

How riding is like taking a hike with out all the walking. I have seen the scenery so close it is just nothing like riding in the car. No steel and windows in your way.

Now don't get me wrong this brings up a con about riding. When in the car you can chit chat and laugh with your friends. I do miss this while on the bike. Yes we have special signals and I am getting really good at charades. But it jsut isn't the same.
