Tip #19 – 28 Days of Decluttering

Tip #19 – When getting out of the car, take everything with you. 

At first I looked up dirty car and the images were too gross to share on a spring afternoon.  Let's all strive for this.

This one is a good one for me – but not my kids.  Every time I get out of my car, I empty it.  I take any trash out, I bring in my coats, scarves, hats, I always unload everything that I brought with me or acquired in my trip.  My kids, they don’t.  So I remind them and they sometimes do a good job, and sometimes they can’t see the forest for the trees and leave half the stuff they brought with them in the car.  It’s a continuous thing we work on.

But I insist on it!  Because the car can get just cluttered as your home, your desk, your junk drawer (remember last weekend when I cleaned out my junk drawer? I posted pictures on the before and after on Facebook.)

#12 – Find a hobby.

A great way to clear your mind with endless tasks from your to-do list is to focus on something creative.  Give your mind a break from your normal routine and you might find this “healthy distraction” is actually very relaxing and enables  you to focus on other tasks later without being tempted away by distractions.
