Prioritize - Do you find yourself putting off a task or a project? Maybe it’s a difficult task or just something you don’t really want to do but need to do anyway. Consider the “eat the frog” philosophy (brought to you by Time Management expert Brian Tracy). This simply states that at the beginning of each day (or each work session) tackle those “frogs” aka hard/unfavorite tasks first thing. Get them over and done with and move on to tasks you enjoy more.

Label - It is amazing that a little strip of tape can make all the difference in the world. Putting labels on bins, boxes and folders let’s you know at a glance what’s inside. Save yourself time and effort in the future by taking a few seconds to put a label on it. You can use a fancy label maker or go low tech with a roll of masking tape and a marker or even just write on the container. Whatever works for you!

Keep (what you love) - Often we keep things out of a sense of obligation (that lace doily from Grandma anyone?). I propose that we should keep things because we love them and enjoy having them in our lives. If you love that ratty brown and gold afghan you’ve had since you were 10, then by all means keep it. Don’t hold onto things that aren’t useful and don’t fill you with joy.
