Modifications are good!

By Control Clutter, How to Organize Your Life Blog

This past Saturday I went to a yoga class. This was my first class in a few years. I had not taken in class since the surgery on my ankle and was a little fearful of some of the poses.

Did you know there are different types of clutter? There is the clutter you have around you when you begin a multi-stepped project and you are just beginning the task. You separate the things based on when you need them and then put the things you don’t immediately need aside. You organize your space so that you have room to complete the project. Then there is the clutter you bring in with you when you walk through the door at the end of the day. Maybe you have groceries, a receipt or 2, a library book, a tote bag or…
