Clutter~ Your Worst Enemy

Well, it is probably not your worst enemy, the devil is, but it isn't a good thing in your life.  The best way to stay organized, I have found, is to not have much clutter.  Stop buying things you don't need.  When you do buy something, try and find something to get rid of. 

A clean, uncluttered home is good for the soul.  It is restful and peaceful.  It is easier to stay organized and clean without much clutter.  I read Clutter's Last Stand by Don Aslett years ago and it made quite an impression on me.  He really talks about clutter and how little stuff we really need.  Hey, it's all going to burn some day anyway, so why let it mess up your life?

Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal.  But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal.  For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
Matthew 6:19-21
