Wreak Order

Getting back to those goodies I found in Real Simple. . .

An article on 16 Quick Ways to Take Control of Your Life included Wreak Order as #12. Here's my favorite part, with thanks to author Jane O'Reilly.

"Moment of Truth No. 1: Those people who save everything, such as the clock shaped like a purple elephant that once adorned my son's nursery wall (he is now 38; the clock broke when he was 10), will be doomed to spending years of their later life, when time is precious, throwing things out. Or, worse, they will be dooming their children to throwing things out.

Moment of Truth No. 2: If the above advice is ignored, mementos turn into life-dulling sludge."
