Snow Day Organization Party

Who says you can't have fun and practice life management tasks at the same time? Okay, you're stuck in your house and can't go anywhere because of the Snow-a-Thon Blizzard of 2010. This is the perfect time to tackle those projects you've been avoiding!! You know you're probably guilty, but now is a great time for redemption (and to be productive). Have you taken pictures, but they're still on you camera or SD card? Is this you? Have you not taken the time to organize them based on subject? Today is the perfect time for that project. In the interest of full disclosure, I did it-three SD cards cleared and pictures arranged into folders. Now I have space for thousands of new memories!! Here are a few more tasks you can tackle over the next few days:

Closets-perfect time to get rid of clothes and donate or discard.
Inventory-clear out your food pantry and rid it of expired food (if you have any).
Junk drawer-tackle the clutter of the "hidden treasures" that lurk in this space.
Paper clutter-make your shredder your new best friend and shred, shred, shred!!
Reconnect-call friends and family to swap stories about your snowbound activities.

Make it a party and prepare some of your favorite dishes. Even those items that in normal circumstances would be avoided should be included (as long as you spend some time working off those snow-bound calories).

What were you able to accomplish? Please share your stories!!

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!!
