Hi, I'm Sondra and I'm a bookaholic.
As a professional organizer, I mostly practice what I preach. My nut mixes and brown rice each have their own sealed containers and my clothes hang neatly on huggable hangers. I throw away junk mail as it crosses my threshold. And my to-do list is kept efficiently on toodledo.com. But I will always have my own clutter challenges -- a problem I convincingly tell myself keeps me in touch with my clients.
I basically keep amazon.com in business. If I meet an interesting writer, I buy his book. If a yoga instructor quotes something life-changing in her class, I find out the source and make the one-click purchase. An inspiring TED video, or cure candida classic, I can’t help myself, I get those too. Now I have bookshelves overflowing with memoirs, chick-lit, New York Times best sellers and self-help galore (don’t even ask about my Kindle).
After some deliberation, I have finally made the difficult decision to attack my bookshelves head on and clear the clutter.
STEP 1. Schedule time for this project.
I set a time when I knew my husband would be out and I could take my time mulling and reminiscing.
