I love quotations. I have always loved quotations - the ones that everyone has heard a million and a half times and the obscure ones that are found at just the right moment. I used to write them in notebooks and read them when I was feeling low or victorious or just needed to hear something inspirational. Now I am going to post them here. I hope they bring you inspiration as well in your clutter-free journey.
"To be prepared is half the victory."Miguel de Cervantes
Woohoo! That means this week I will be half way there already! Take that clutter!
"One step at a time is good walking."Chinese proverb
I often try to get to far ahead of myself and then life gets frustrating. I'm working on it!
"A good system shortens the road to the goal."
I sure hope that the road to a clutter-free classroom is shorter than I think. If it seems too long, I will refer to quote #2 again!
Now that I'm inspired, on to the clutter plan!
(When I started writing out this plan I was immediately reminded of a book I read a couple years ago that I adored. The book is "It's All Too Much" by Peter Walsh. I am taking a lot of my ideas from the book and also Jodi's questions from Clutter-Free Classroom. I would highly recommend checking out both!)
Here are Peter Walsh's ground rules:
1. Everything you own should have value, either because it's functional or beautiful or you just love it.
2. Every item needs a place where it "lives."
