Smart Ways to Clear Clutter and Streamline Your Life
Just Say No
I have three children, a husband, a dog, and a full-time job, and I was volunteering to help out with every activity that
came forth. I finally realized that my children were happier to have me at home than out doing things that I thought were
for their own good. I gave up everything except the once-a-month PTA meeting. My children are much happier knowing that I
will kiss them good-night while they are still awake, instead of while they are asleep.

Being self-employed as a hairstylist, I decided not to accept any new clients. I found myself taking just one more cut and working until 8:00 or 9:00 p.m. I am now able to go to the kids' practices and make dinner for my husband for a change, and I am able to relax a little more. My family definitely comes first, and it's about time I realized this.
