Do Tackle Toppling
Contain tiny things so they can be moved as a unit &
won't topple when you reach for one. Medicine
cabinets are big culprits: plucking out the right bottle
feels like a game of Operation. But corral them in an
open bin on the shelf & grabbing the whole group or
just one is a snap. Works everywhere -- for tea,
vitamins, small tools, art supplies -- & so simple.

Don't Squeeze
Next time you think, "I can squeeze this one last task
in before I go," just don't. Recognize it as an example
of false efficiency. Cramming the task in when you
don't truly have time will cause you to: do it badly, be
late for your next appointment, & stress about both.
Leave the task undone for now & enjoy being on time.

My favorite way to store jewelry is in a hanging
organizer like this one. You can see everything at
once, & it's usually easier to hang this on a closet rod
or a hook on the back of a door than it is to make
room for a jewelry box. (I suppose if you have very
fancy jewelry you might need something more secure,
but I don't have that problem!)

Give to End Poverty   
I'm excited about a poverty-fighting program with a
new chapter in the Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti area. Circles
has a proven (30-year!) track record of ending
generational poverty, attacking it from all sides &
involving whole communities. Email me or go here if
you'd like to get involved, & go here if you'd like to
donate funds!


Get Organized in May, June, & July        
I'm scheduling onsite organizing sessions in the Detroit
& Chicago
areas -- as well as phone or video sessions
in the world -- for May through July.

Call or email or email to find your best time. My
Michigan & virtual schedules are the most flexible --
just suggest a day. For sessions in Chicagoland, check
this link
for availability in May and July. A few May
spots are still available! 

We'll identify your trouble spots, break them down into
manageable steps, work through them, & keep in touch
to help you maintain your progress.
