Save what inspires you
IDEA EXTRACTED FROM:
Keep all your financial records, birth certificates, land titles and insurance in one folder, preferably in a safe.
Doing this will take time, but it is easier to find what you need.
Take note of the places at home or at the office that collect clutter and tidy them up daily.
Use apps to record your monthly accounts and spending.
This will help you to know exactly where your money goes. The app can also send notifications to remind you when accounts are due.
As an experiment, try to donate or throw out something you don't use before buying something else.
Alternatively, throw out one unused item every day for a month.
Dispose of expired canned foods and medicines to minimize the clutter and make space for new supplies.
Create a list of responsibilities for each family member. Review the list with them weekly to ensure that all tasks are being attended to. De-cluttering is easier as a team effort.
Practise keeping your home and life organized by packing things away immediately after using them. It may take a few minutes now but will save more time later.
Unread magazines, catalogues and email are just a waste of time, money and space. If you haven't read a single email from a newsletter or other publication, just unsubscribe.
Create an itemized list of home or office supplies so that you don’t run out. Don't overstock.
Minimize food wastage by labelling all items in your fridge. Include the expiration date.
It is tiresome to clean everything on a single day. Rather create daily, weekly and monthly schedules for cleaning, distributing the tasks evenly.
