Some reading to inspire you on your organizing journey:
Clear Your Clutter With Feng Shui by Karin Kingston
This is the book that sold me on the fact that clutter drains you of energy. It’s a wonderful book and a super-quick read. It forever transformed the way I viewed the “stuff” in my life!
Getting Things Done by David Allen
I read this book after hearing so much about it. He has devised a wonderful way of organizing and prioritizing all the many things we need to get done. I highly recommend it!
