. Its a time to be thankful; to recognize and to cherish the good things in your life. I would like to suggest that you start out this month by taking the time to appreciate what is already working in your life. Take a moment now and think about what is helping you stay organized.

*** An excerpt from a future book *** Using fifteen-minute blocks of time, the goal was to sort papers, knickknacks, tools, clothes, project items, or whatever we wanted to clear into various categories: Stay Here, Somewhere Else, Give Away, Recycle, Trash, and TBR.
It's easier to know when you've arrived, if you know where you want to go. So before you file that paper, store that item, create that great filing system or organize your stuff, begin with the end in mind.
Difficulty letting go of items that were once their mother's, father's grandparents' or child's. The attachment to the item or items is actually an attachment to a memory, but they fear that by letting go of the object they will somehow be throwing away the memories and love for the person they have lost; that now they are gone, the only way they can show respect for their loved one is by caring for the things they cared about. This is not the case.
