    Stay green, keep it paperless! (when dealing with office stuff)

    Nothing in without something out. (when dealing with new toys, equipment, large items, clothing)

    Save it or Lose it! (anytime I’m paring back-kitchen, bedroom, bath)

    My mantras vary depending on what I’m doing. Sometimes they work, sometimes I find myself grunting them out as I strive to follow it.

    Use it or lose it!

    If I haven’t used something in a certain period of time (months, weeks, whatever–depends on the item), I give it away or throw it away. I don’t need things cluttering up my house!

    Where would I look later?

    When filing random pieces of paper, I stop and ask myself what folder I would check first if I wanted to find it. Seems obvious but it really helps. If I don’t come up with an answer I start a new file category.
