Life management insights, strategies, hints, ideas, and tips from Dr. DClutter™.

Thursday, December 18, 2008


You just spent hours buying the perfect gifts for your loved ones and feel extremely proud of yourself for not going over budget. Whew!! You can now relax, or can you?? What happens if the sweater is too big, or the pants too small? Will you know where the receipts are to exchange or return the item? Well, you will if you store your receipts in one place. I personally use an accordion style folder that I have labeled with the alphabet for ease of filing, but use what will work for you. You can also use another low-tech, no–tech method; the tried and true shoebox. Yes, I know, it can become a cluttered mess, but it doesn't have to. If you take the time to paperclip your receipts based on the name of the store, you can keep clutter to a minimum. Final suggestion, get a gift receipt and include it with the gift. That will save you a trip to the store.

About Me

My photo
Washington, DC, United States
I am Dr. Darnita L. Payden, Executive Director/Owner of Dr. DClutter™ Life Management, a division of PreciousOnes™ LLC. I have a Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology and over 20 years of experience working to help clients discover their strengths and talents. Having worked as a therapist, college professor, grief specialist and trainer, I have encountered in my journey many of the issues my clients may face. I have a sincere desire to help you find clarity, organization and independence in your life and environments. I know that life can be hectic, but I desire to help my clients bring as much order, peace and enjoyment back into their lives as is possible. What separates me from the norm? I focus on the client from a holistic perspective. I realize that most people desire a functional and an organized life, but may simply need support, understanding and information about why they have the habits or tendencies that have led to disorganization. I do not perform “quick fixes” or provide “one-size-fits-all” guidance, but I strive to provide strategies to my clients that will be life changing and useful for a lifetime. Dr. DClutter™ is a name well earned!!
