  • Hello!Introduction!! Who Am I???If you are like me you want to kick off the New Year Right! You want to be organized, efficient and get things done quickly. Decluttering your PC can help you achieve this goal.
  • Why Declutter?Its distractingCluttered house = cluttered mind.It will stamper your creativity and create a barrier to successFind the Quality in what you own. Be able to find the treasures. It’s hard to know what you own when its buried with a million other things or stuffed into an overfilled drawer or closetAn organized place with give you peace of mind and a sense of self-satisfaction. Don’t “dread” looking into drawers or around your house.Set about decluttering in an organized manner & set small goals- bouncing from one place to another will lead to nothing being completed.Set a goal (a folder, a type of file, a year)Create a vision in your head on how you want the space to look – - How are you going to access this stuff? By Year, By Name? By Album?
