October 2008
In this edition of my Organizing Tips Newsletter I want to talk about two areas in homes where it can be challenging to reduce clutter.  One is junk mail and the frustration of keeping it out of the house.  The other is stuff that is not taken by curbside recycling and the difficulty of knowing what to do with it. I am including information below on how to stop junk mail and environmentally friendly ways to deal with the things we want to get rid of but are not sure how.
