I have always preferred having wings
to having things.
- Pat Schroeder
This quote is so true for me. In 1992 when I moved from Oak Park, Illinois, to NJ I had to sell or donate nearly everything I had. Because I had so much stuff it had cost my company over $14,000 to move me out to Illinois. (I told you I used to be a packrat) But when I wanted to move back to NJ, the only way I could afford it was to lighten my load. (it only cost me $1200 to move back) I eventually collected more stuff, but then I let go of it once again after I got my first Feng Shui Consultation. Read here about how letting go of clutter may have been the thing that helped me get married for the first time when I was 41 years old! Ultimately, my quest to let go of clutter led me to finding my passion, taking charge of my own happiness, and starting this business which has truly given my spirit wings.
BONUS NEAT & SIMPLE ORGANIZING TIP!
Here is my latest foray into using what I already have to get organized. I needed a plastic bag holder in a closet where I put a litter box for my cats. I didn't want to run out and spend $12 on a new one, so I thought for a minute, and here's what I came up with...I took the last few tissues out of the package and stuffed it with plastic bags! It works like a charm!
Happy Fourth of July! : )
