Don’t get me wrong, I love Real Simple Magazine. I am constantly inspired by their before and after pictures and often take away really smart ideas for improving efficiency. However I want to quickly point out that this magazine (and all the countless others) quickly become clutter if you allow them to sit in your home and go unused.
So I challenge you today to go through your home and gather all of the magazines laying around and put them in one place. Make a vow to go through as many as you can each day until no magazines remain. Should you find interesting tidbits that you would like to further research simply rip that page out and put it in a pile. BE REALISTIC when you do this. We would all love to read and know everything in the world but honestly who has the time? Tear out the pages that will enrich your life and that are WORTH YOUR TIME. Ask yourself, “with the thousand things I have to do today, am I really going to make time to read this article about how to get flatter abs?”
Remember, you want to surround yourself with things you NEED, VALUE, USE, LOVE and RESPECT. Rarely would a magazine fall under any of those categories. Now go gather, review and recycle! You will be amazed at how much space you have to gain.
All the best,
Patricia G. Masi
