Of course housecleaning is no one’s idea of a fun time. (Frankly, very little about home maintenance seems fun to me — especially gardening. I do not understand gardening. Sitting in the hot sun, digging holes, pulling weeds, sweaty, dirty, killing your back and knees — where’s the attraction in that?? Sorry — I digress!)…

Sometimes when you’re not paying close enough attention, life can creep in on you from all sides. You bring home some junk from your mom’s house, you forget to open the mail for a week, you agree to a few extracurricular projects at work — then before you know it, you’re knee-deep in clutter, behind…

Some folks treat decluttering like the organizational equivalent of having a root canal, behaving as if the sheer act of making decisions about their stuff is causing them physical pain — but clearing the decks ain’t that hard! Anyone can do it — with a little patience, a little stamina, a WHOLE lot of coffee,…

It’s much easier to let go of stuff that serves no purpose in your life (especially when said “stuff” originally cost you a lot of dough) if you can recoup some of that lost investment. Let’s face it — finding a way to sell valuable-yet-purposeless clutter feels less like wasted money than simply giving it…

Journalists seem to like what I say about organizing/simplifying. (God knows why, with the mouth on me — I guess a little profanity keeps “chained-to-your-desk” interesting.) Of course after toning the language down, I’m never quoted as accurately as I’d like. But at least no one can accuse me of a boring interview! My focus…

I travel constantly, so I’m always coming into contact with strangers. (Some stranger than others!) The majority of folks I meet are wonderful — friendly, generous, doing their best to be considerate and productive members of society. However, it’s the 1% who have their heads inserted rectally that make me wonder about our species. Why…

I have a lot to say about the world in my fascist state (too much, if the truth be told). But I’m just standing on the shoulders of giants — I owe a huge debt of gratitude to all those smart-ass social commentators who came before me, inspiring me with their caustic wit. Let me…
