Eva's Edict: End-of-Month Clean Out

It's the end of the month, end of Q3 (third quarter of the year), end of the summer season.

Perfect time to roll out another one of Eva's Edict!

Today, I'd like you to choose ONE area to focus on, to Clean Out, Clear Out, Close Out.

Like I say in my presentations, even though the whole house may be in need of help, we're going to ZOOM in and focus on ONE thing to work on.

We want to make the most use of your time, and avoid the "bumblebee" syndrome (touching on many different places in the house, but not getting anything accomplished).

I'd like to see you make some progress, so pick ONE area today:

- Accounting (bills, receipts)

- Bag (choose 1: purse, wallet, backpack, or diaper bag)

- Car (quick clean out)

- Closet (out of season clothes, excess supplies, donation items, etc.)

- Mail (sort, recycle)

- Your Choice (let me know what you're working on!)

Set your timer for 5 minutes to start, then add on extra time, as you have available today.

The main thing is: to get started, start doing SOMETHING rather than nothing and to begin to Sort Things Out, one step at a time!

Ask for help if you need it (family member, friend, assistant, your friendly neighborhood Professional Organizer!).

You can always call me for moral support and extra guidance, Toll-free (U.S.) 1-877-708-0884. I'm here to help!

Contact me or leave a Comment below after you've done Eva's Edict: End-of-Month Clean Out and I'll feature your story here!

Good luck, RELEASE, RELEASE, RELEASE and let me know how you made out.
