National Clean Out Your Purse Day is here!

Okay - let's be honest - how often do you actually clean out your purse?  I would have to say that I only clean it out after I get so much paper in it that it falls out when I am searching for my keys or my wallet. And what is even worse -- when I decide to change purses, I generally take out what I need and throw the purse I am no longer using in the closet with all the trash still in it!

So, in preparation for this day, I decided to start with the purses in my closet!  I pulled them all down and  my son helped me empty them all out into a shoebox.  I then managed to weed the purses and donated about six to goodwill.  Of course, everything is still in that shoebox - I haven't gotten far enough to actually put it all away!

This morning I "dumped" my purse out on the floor and started going through it

After removing a couple of tablets of paper, a lot of receipts and about 5 pens, it was much lighter!  I changed my purse out about a month ago, so it wasn't near as bad as it could have been!

  Probably the weirdest thing I found in my purse was an orange hourglass - I have no idea where it came from!

So now it is your turn!  Go dump those purses and see what you find.  Once you have completed your "dump" - go let Kathi Lipp know on her blog - If you like her author page on Facebook, you will also receive her free download “30 Ways to Save 30 Minutes in the Next 30 Days” to kick start your way to a more organized you!

You might want to pick up a copy of her book The Get Yourself Organized Project while you are at it!

Finally, an organizational book for women who have given up trying to be Martha Stewart but still desire some semblance of order in their lives.
Most organizational books are written by and for people who are naturally structured and orderly. For the woman who is more ADD than type A, the advice sounds terrific but seldom works. These women are looking for help that takes into account their free-spirited outlook while providing tips and tricks they can easily follow to live a more organized life.
Kathi Lipp, author of The Husband Project and other “project” books, is just the author to address this need. In her inimitable style, she offers
·        easy and effective ways women can restore peace to their everyday lives
·        simple and manageable long-term solutions for organizing any room in one’s home (and keeping it that way)
·        a realistic way to de-stress a busy schedule
·        strategies for efficient shopping, meal preparation, cleaning, and more
Full of helpful tips and abundant good humor, The Get Yourself Organized Project is for those who want to spend their time living and enjoying life rather than organizing their sock drawer.
