Day 31

Well here we are!  
It's hard to believe we're at the end of the month already.  

My final tip is not a picture, but some pretty wonderful sorting advice I read on  I hope you will be able to use this as well as a few of the ideas from the past month to help make your life a little more peaceful.
Thanks for reading along this past 31 Days!

Know the two ways to sort. There are certainly other ways to sort your belongings, but these two ways are simple and effective.
  • Like with like. A family member of mine sorts her kitchen tools into two drawers: “scoopy-stirry” (spoons, ladles etc.) and “cutty-pokey” (knives, vegetable peelers etc.). Sounds a little silly, but it works, and once you know where these drawers are, you can quite easily find what you need, even if you are not familiar with her kitchen. Other like-with-like categories might include tools, paper goods, and electronics and power cords.
  • Complete a task. The second way of sorting is to corral everything you need to complete a task from start to finish. In one drawer in my home, for instance, I have envelopes, stamps, pens, checks and an address book. You might want a drawer near the front door to keep your keys, wallet, cell phone, sunglasses and other personal items.
