I was immediately intrigued -- I love reading stuff that challenges you to think and do out-of-the-box. And to my pleasant surprise, organizing made the list at #19! According the the author, "On October 10 of every year, make a vow to fill up 10 trash bags full of things in and around your home that are simply taking up space! De-clutter the environmental chaos of your life that takes up room and decide to let it go.throw away, donate, or give away the items to people.who may find them as appealing as you once did!" (Thats easy to remember, too - 10 bags on the 10th day of the 10th month.) When you think about it, it makes sense that organizing would be included in such a list. Because when you get organized, it gives you this indescribable feeling. Youre finally free! Youre no longer tied to the chaos, and its no longer tied to you. And while it may not be bungee jumping or walking on fire, its an equally important high.one that will impact your life forever -- in a really good way. So tell me, how does organization enrich your life?

It's great that organizing is being recognized for the important part that it, and the lack of it, plays in our lives. I would have to say though that de-cluttering should be an on-going routine instead of a once-a-year job. I cant' imagine if I saved all my purging for only once a year! Although I do get the author's point about being able to remember 10 bags in the 10 month. At Friday, June 19, 2009 , Carmen said. I couldn't agree more! I advocate doing a major purge at least 2 times a year, if not more. But I guess 1 time is better than no time. :) At Friday, June 19, 2009 , Anonymous said. I think 1 bag on the 12th of every month is a much bettet plan.You would have 12 bags a year and declutter each month. that way your home doesn't become cluttered.
