RROBLEM: I love to buy things but they just add to the clutter when I bring them home.
SOLUTION: Make a list of what you are going to buy and buy what is on your list. When you put something on your list make sure you think through the whole process of what needs to happen in order for that item to function in your house. Here are some questions to ask:
1. Do you have a home for that item?
2. If something occupies the space where the new item
is going to go, what will happen to the old item.
3. Do you have time for the new item (assembling, dealing with packaging and little pieces, deconstruction the old item)?
HINT: Stay out of stores where your impulse is to buy.
