Organizing Fall Fling Day 28: Excuses

Organizing Fall Fling Day 28: Excuses

Fling those excuses. I’m waiting for the right time to reorganize my closet. I can’t do my taxes because I hate doing my taxes. Take the project, break it down into small do-able steps and then schedule those steps on your calendar. Take it one step at a time and get through it! If you need help, ask for it.

Organizing Fall Fling Day 27: DVDs

Organizing Fall Fling Day 27: DVDs

Gather all of your DVDs into one spot. Fling any that you don’t love or that you really don’t want watch again. If you’ve bought the movies recently, you may be eligible for a digital copy that will allow you to get rid of the disk and case, or at least keep them in an out of the way place like a high closet shelf.  Libraries love to get DVDs to add to their collection or to sell in their used book sales. So fling away!

Organizing Fall Fling: Day 21 - Camera Roll

Take a look at the photos on your phone and delete the bad pictures. You know they aren’t all keepers but they are clogging up the memory on your phone.  Then fling those pictures off of your phone and onto your computer or at the very least into the cloud (iCloud, Dropbox) Not sure how to do this? Google your kind of phone and “download photos.”

This should give you step by step instructions.
