Blog: An Organization Diet -- Lose the clutter and drop the weight
September offers a fresh start!

  I did my weekly guest-spot radio show yesterday and the host of the show started complaining that summer was basically over and she was becoming depressed. I couldn't have been more on the opposing field. As much as I enjoy summer and getting off schedule a bit with my children home, by the middle of August, I am ready for Autumn!
A time I begin to crave regular routines again! September to me is like a freshly cleaned slate, ready to be filled with new possibilities, new opportunities…new resolutions!
  It's also a great time for "me" time…something that, unless you don't have children at home, probably don't find a lot. "Me" time is that time you carve out of each day just for you…to learn something new, to finish up a craft, start a new project, have lunch with an old friend, soak in a tub, read a book or even exercise and think healthy about dieting.
   Sometimes I don't know how I did it, but this summer I actually managed to find enough time to finish up my first children's book, which will be out in stores within the next six weeks or so. It's a picture book about the importance of organizing and includes a parent's guide to organizing and a one of kind organizing dictionary of commonly used terms and phrases. The book is called "Organizing A to Z"…A Children's Organizing Alphabet and Guide to Getting Organized! It retails for $24.95 but I hope to be able to extend discounts to my blog readers and www.onlineorganizing.com shoppers when the book is available soon. Watch for it! It will make a great holiday gift to any family with small children!
    Okay, so that was my project over the summer. Now that I'm still energized by it and want to keep the momentum going, what do you think my project will be this Fall? I should have more 'me' time since kids are tucked into school again. Well, I do have another writing project that I am working on part time, but I think more in the forefront will be my HEALTH! As I've mentioned in this blog many times before, there really is a correlation between organizing and dieting. When you clear some space, some time or achieve a goal…you instantly get more energized, feel better about yourself, happier…and want to eat healthier. It's a package deal. We always seem do better on diets on those days of accomplishment or days of clarity and control. So, let's get rid of the clutter in our homes, finish up those half-done projects and get back to healthy dieting and exercising!
   Make a list of projects you want to get done this Fall…list each one on an index card and a time frame in which you hope to accomplish it by. Collate them by dates and post the cards with time frames beginning this week to remind you to work on them. Post them on your fridge, on your office desk or on your nightstand…wherever they can best  serve as a reminder to get going! Remember, use the start of a new season as a fresh start to your new lifestyle. Get control, get accomplished, get de-cluttered…and watch as your weight begins to drop! Email me with how you're doing!
