I ran across a terrific article today from USA today.
It is called "It's 'Time' to declutter, bit by bit" by Michelle Healy.
She asks questions of Tara Kuczykoski and Mandi Ehman, both moms and bloggers too.
Here are 5 great tips from the article I liked a lot:
#1: Know when to stock up on different things. They mention when to buy frozen food and chest freezers (March) and the best time to buy ice cream (June, July, or August).
#2. Saving time can be a higher priority than just saving money sometimes.
#3. Use a timer for de-cluttering and start at small timed increments. (This is also a mainstay method for people who use FlyLady too).
#4. It IS possible to find coupons for healthy foods. One of the bloggers has a database at DealSeekingMom.com that can help).
#5. A daily cleanup schedule should include sorting the mail, doing dishes, putting away toys, keeping up with laundry, wiping counters, and sweeping or vacuuming the kitchen floor.
There are other great hints here too. I think you will love this article too. Here is that link:
