“Too Much Stuff” Syndrome or How Decorating and Organizing Can Help Your SanityWritten by Lisa DeClue
Continued from page 1
Use a great tip I just discovered: Pick three nights a week to try on 5 items in your closet, then go to your dressers and do same thing. At this rate, average American woman should be able to go through all her clothes in about 3 years, 9 months and 14 days. No need to worry, it’ll be a different season then!
Kids’ Toys 1.You could try to “limit” number of toys they play with each month and cycle them to and from garage so your little ones get variety. 2.That takes too much effort. I just threatened my boys if they left toys out on their floor at bedtime, they would be in dumpster next day (the toys, silly!). Do this twice, and you’ll have this hot spot under control.
I hope these points have given you some new ways to look at problem of clutter and refreshing methods to deal with them. Given fun you’ll have with that dumpster, you might want to consider renting a second one for hubby’s stuff.
I’ll tell you what. If you really do rent a dumpster (okay, it can be smaller version) I’ll have a reward for your diligence. Ladies – Email me that you filled your dumpster to very tippy top and something funny that happened during process. I’ll send you a coupon for a discount on a Fragrance Lamp that will fill your home with lovely aromas. Gentlemen – Email me same (that is, that you actually rented thing and filled it, and an amusing related story) and I will send you a Gift Certificate for your wife. Such a deal!

The Ultimate stingWritten by Holly and Shirley Yanez
Continued from page 1
It makes for an interesting, intriguing read that stretches beyond every page with breathlessly entertaining yarns. This straightforwardly funny, captivatingly offbeat, full blown, quirky page-turner leaves reader in stitches. Humor is something we could all use more of in our lives, especially kind of British satire found on every page within four chapters of this little pink treasure. One liners galore, idiots, arrogant Hollywood agents, ladies of loose virtues, self centered celebrity and on and on. A candid display of so many of Hollywood’s characters is magic formula that makes this book, an all time favorite, wittiest, funniest laugh out loud tale of true passion, persistence and probably to much pot smoking. It’s a memoir, a travel guide, a “how to” Hollywood and an unorthodox, read between lines, attack on ego Freud would be proud of but most of all it’s an enchanting and captivating rollercoaster ride with two people who live each day as if it were their last, in front seat. Sometimes irreverent sarcasm is overstated and sometimes it hits you in face but you will laugh from second you pick it up to moment you put it down.
