Simple Ways to Declutter Your Life

MONEY

  • Look over your bank and credit card statements to track your spending habits.
  • Make a list of luxuries you can live without, then live without them.
  • Pay cash and leave your credit card at home.
  • Walk or ride a bicycle and drive less, saving on gas.
  • Buy just the foods you will eat and freeze leftovers to save on waste.
  • Eat out less. Cook at home and bring your lunch to work.
  • Cancel your T.V. and watch shows on your computer.
  • Rather than rent movies take out DVD’s from the library.

I think we need an article on "how to stay uncluttered". I read these declutter articles and I go declutter. Somehow I always find myself back where I started but with other things.
I will try to remain uncluttered, promise this time I will do it, honest!
