Wednesday Wisdom

I had such good remarks yesterday- about organizing and cleaning up the clutter and getting rid of the unnecessary things.... I am copying them to today's Wednesday Wisdom, because they truly are wisdom.
oh yeah, Blog friends ROCK!
My rule is, if I haven't touched it, used it, remembered I had it...I probably don't need it.
Everytime I think about getting something at the store.....I say OUTLOUD, "This is just going to end up in next year's garage sale...nope...I don't need it!"
I have cut WAY down on my clutter...and the saving's account is actually growing! Cool!

I attended a class years ago and the teacher said : stuff owns you. You have to move it, clean it, pay for it, dust it, store it........It makes me think twice about my purchases.

I need some rules around here...clutter seems to find its way in even with no help from me. Hugs

This project of yours has been good for me. I am getting rid of things, too, slowly but surely.
