Do something useful.

I had a busy weekend, I was running around and doing errands cleaning tasks.

You know what, it felt good to look back on Saturday and see how much I got done, so we relaxed and just lazed around the house on Sunday.

Kids got grumpy, house got messy, and when I went to bed I noticed I didn't get "anything" done.

Tuning out and watching TV or goofing off isn't a good way to spend time.
I don't enjoy it, and it pushes me further from where I want to be.

Why do that, when I can do something useful that makes me feel better?

You have too much stuff

I've accumulated a lot of stuff.

I find that the exciting trip is seeing new boxes, bins and storage items to put it in.
I have to take the minivan and load up, the amount of storage material simply won't fit in my car.

I find I have to spend time looking for things that I know I have, but can't find them "right now", if ever.

I simply have too much stuff.
Throw it out.

If it has more than a trivial value,  post it on craigslist or kijiji and if it doesn't move, donate it.
If you know it won't sell just donate it.

When I donate, I like to put in large clear plastic bags so I know what I'm gathering up.
