10 Tips to Have Less Clutter at Home
From THE CLUTTER-BUSTING HANDBOOK by Rita Emmett

  1. Have company over once in a while so the home gets cleaned.
  2. Pay bills, fold laundry, sort through catalogues and magazines, and so forth during TV commercials or
  3. Tidy up during commercials.
  4. When de-cluttering a room, start at the doorway and go right or left. Then if you’re interrupted, you can see where you stopped.
  5. Don’t de-clutter and clean the same day. You might keel over, poor thing.
  6. Keep all your house information (insurance, warrantees, receipts) together in a file, binder, drawer, desk, box or paper bag.
  7. Never climb stairs empty-handed as long as there’s something that should be taken upstairs.
  8. Glance over your left shoulder every time you leave a room. Pick up the clutter you spot and take it with you.
  9. Learn to ignore. Relationships are more important than chasing dust bunnies.
  10. Hire someone to clean your house even if it’s only once in a blue moon. It feels fantastic.

WANT TO MEET RITA IN PERSON?

BIZ BASH AT THE MERCHANDISE MART
August 19 Rita will be at Biz Bash at the Merchandise Mart. Stop by the NSA-IL (National Speakers Association -Illinois Chapter) booth and say hi.

MILWAUKEE IRISH FEST
August 20, 21 and 22 Rita, Bruce and several of their kids will be at Milwaukee Irish Fest. One way to spot her is that they never wear green so that when they split up, it is much easier to find each other when everyone except them is wearing green.

CLUTTER-BUSTING THE BLOOD STREAM
On August 30, Rita will donate some extra platelets that are cluttering up her bloodstream. She is always pathetic afterwards & desperately seeks pampering & sympathy.
