Answer:

It is not simple! and not That is NOT That! Sometimes it's a fight. Everyone is different about how they feel about their clutter..etc..A lot of it has a underlying reason for it..Like maybe not having any clothes when growing up and also maybe being heavy when younger so you couldnt wear the cute clothes..Now your weight is down and all the cute stuff is everywhere..including your house! It is very hard to get rid of..you fight against yourself like rebelling against your own self about doing what needs to be done! and some people don't have the money to see a therapist about things...thanks for reading...sorry so long..

Answer:

I had a hard time getting organized I just could not comprehend the word and one day I was watching Charles Stanley. He was preaching on being organized. So I ordered his pamphlet on how to get organized Gods way. I had accumulated so much stuff, and I don't know if it is paper work or other things you need to get organized. after reading the pamphlet I was able to clear out things I did not need. Like cloths, linens, paper's my house finally became a peaceful clutter free enviroment.

Answer:

The answer is simple, my dear friend. You must put your stuff away and THAT IS THAT. End of story. Dot the i. Period. Bam. That is the answer and believe me I have found that it works almost 100% of the time I do indeed believe. If you don't, FORGET ABOUT IT PARTNER!! Hope this helps some people that are struggling with this issue and struggling with body image issues especially.

Answer:

You spelled "their" as "there," so clearly you put your dictionary away.

Anyway, assuming you want to be organized swiftly and confidently (hint: you posted in the "Getting Organized" section, hello!), then I have a few great ideas.
