As I continue to read Organizing Solutions for People with Attention Deficit Disorder, by Susan Pinsky, I get more and more impressed. There's lots of good advice here - and the woman has a way with words.
Here is just some of her advice about deciding which sentimental items to keep, and which to discard:
"Hold on to Grandma's favorite hankie, but get rid of her sleeper sofa."
"Of your child's schoolwork, keep those items which are autobiographical--a drawing of 'My Family' and essays entitled 'What I'm going to do when I grow up,' 'My favorite things,' and 'My vacation.' Get rid of the report on President Lincoln even if it got an A+"
