The Zapper: Clutter

At work you've got piles of papers closing in on you that you don't have time to file. At home, there's a week's worth of mail to sort through, take-out-menus all over your center island, and reams of "art" that your children have brought home from school that you just can't bring yourself to throw out piling up. Guess what? All that stuff is waging a two-pronged assault on your energy stores: First, there's the feng shui kind of drain that a chaos-filled space engenders and then there is the time that you waste looking for things.

Getting rid of clutter will make you more organized, more productive and happier at work and home. If you fear you may have a smidge of the hoarding gene, have some friends come over to help you clear out your space. Be ruthless. If you're not going to read it, if the kids aren't going to miss it (they won't), if you haven't worn it in the last year.

i was thinking of going through my house and just starting small, and getting rid of, or throwing away at least one thing every day.
