Time and Money Wasters

  • How much time do you spend looking for keys, sunglasses, your cell phone?

  • How much money are you losing in late fees and interest by not paying bills on time?

  • How much time and money are you wasting buying stamps, tools and supplies, over and over again, because you can't find them when you need them?

It is possible to live in a beautiful and organized home without driving yourself and your family crazy. It just takes a little education and the will to develop some new habits. The payoff will be less stress in your life, and alot more time and money for fun.

Resolve to develop a different way of doing ordinary things. Stick with it for three weeks and you've created a new habit. One that works for you, instead of against you.
