Is Clutter Killing Your Sex Life?

My father always said that relationships are the hardest thing you will ever do. Think about that. Deep down, what gives you the most stress? Do you worry about your older parents’ safety? Fret about your children’s futures? Argue with your spouse about responsibilities at home? Chances are some of you are screaming, “Yes!” Let’s look at that last example: arguing with your spouse. Does he leave his shoes in the middle of the floor? Does she have piles of untouched papers sitting on the desk in the kitchen? Are you on a first-name basis with your UPS delivery person because there are boxes of unneeded items arriving every day?

Color-code Your Way to Being Organized

Photo by AGSIA DESIGN GROUP – Color-coding is one of my favorite ways to organize! I color-code everything, from clothes to files to cookware to calendars. While these photos are of professionally staged spaces, color-coding can work in your life and the way you live it. Try it and let me know how it goes. The principle behind organizing with color is simple: It’s quicker and easier to recognize a color than it is to read a label. When you assign meaning to a certain color, it’s easier to quickly find what you need when you need it. […]
