I used to procrastinate on EVERYTHING. But I learned in college, that the rush from the original assignment was just as adrenaline pumping as the last-minute adrenaline rush - So if something needs to get done - I hang on to that initial rush and do it before the rush runs out! Now, if it's something mundane I can't do right away, I write it down on a short list and add something exciting to it, like "buy toothpaste AND get a new magazine." It's a little Pavlovian but it works! emoticon

Less IS more!

Over the past several years I have been slowly reducing the amount of 'things' in my house. I found they were taking over my life between managing them, dusting them, cleaning around them, etc. I began looking at each 'thing' and asked myself two questions: "Does this have true sentimental value to me?" and "Have I used it in the past year?" If the answer to these was No, then I either sold it or donated it to charity. It's very freeing not to have so many 'things' around. Try it!

Closet shuffle

When your closet starts getting overcrowded, take all the hangers with your clothes and put them in backwards. If you use a garment, you can reverse the hanger. After a month pull all the clothes that are still hung backwards and remove them -- you're not wearing them and they just take up space!
