Shopping Ban 2019…

I have attempted a shopping ban a few times over the past few years, and I have failed.  I don’t think you can go hog wild on ceasing to shop all together unless you have a reasonable outline of what is allowed and what is not allowed, and you check in monthly for accountability.  I […]

Day 12 – Summer 2018 Mins Game 

Oh my, the junk we accrue over time.  At this point I feel like I could be purging for years to come.  Every day, I go through a cupboard or a drawer and find a few more items taking up valuable space, preventing me from finding what I actually do use and need.  Today’s purge […]

Prepping for a Successful Shopping Ban

I am a firm believer in the old adage “if at first you don’t succeed, try, try again”, most especially if it is something you aspire to be or acquire.   I have tried the “Shopping Ban” a couple of times, and I have failed, and perhaps I just wasn’t ready. I was a self proclaimed […]

Declutter Your Email

I don’t know about you, but I spend a good portion of my day on a computer and much of it responding to emails and deleting emails I have been copied on which I really shouldn’t be copied on, but better safe than sorry when it comes to work.  The last thing I want to […]

2017’s Resolutions 

Here is my list of New Year’s resolutions. However, I could just skip the list and tell you my ultimate goal is to be mindful in everything I do, and to focus on today, not worrying so much about tomorrow and leaving the past where it belongs… Be mindful in everything I do. Focus on […]

The Purge!

Not like the movie!  I am purging and decluttering and it is super messy & not so enjoyable.  I want this stuff out of my space ASAP!  I have heaps of books I have read and will never read again or just books I planned to read, but realized I will never read them. I […]
