How to Kick the Clutter Habit
You just know you left your car keys somewhere on the kitchen counter. Or maybe in your coat pocket. Or on the living room table. Or maybe the dog swiped them and buried them in the backyard while you weren’t looking.
By the time you finally locate the ever-elusive keys (hidden beneath a pile of mail on the dining room table, of course), you’re already half an hour late for an important meeting, so you blow it off and spend the rest of the morning guzzling coffee, attempting to brainstorm some sort of excuse that people will fall for.
