I Put the Perfect Outfit Together Once

I'll be the first to admit, I am no fashionista.  I want to be.  Really, I do.  I am so bad that when I see a mannequin in the store wearing an outfit I like, I buy each piece and try to re-create the look.  Sad, huh?  Here's the problem - I get the perfect outfit together, wear it, wash it and return it to my closet, it's forgotten.  I group my pants, dresses, skirts, tops together and then I group them further by color.  I never got the hang of remembering what went with what - only that my closet is a perfectly ordered array of color.

So, I stumbled upon this product today from

I found out about Clothes Mates from a postcard mailing.  I admit - I filed the card away in my Pending file and today the task of "check your Pending file" came up and there was the card.  Being in the profession that I am in, I get loads of product information in the mail.  I was really impressed with the website and the product.  I think I'm going to try it. …

A Dream Come True for Clutter Conscious Bookworms!

I love books.  Books can teach, transport you to another world, enlighten you,  make you laugh or cry.  There is also one other thing that books can do and that is to cause clutter.  Yes, you can have too many books.

However, with technology tools today like the Kindle, you can now enjoy as many as 3,500 books.  Imagine physically having to store that many books in your home.  You'd have to have a separate rental unit just for your books and don't even get me started on that!

The Kindle also offers free 3G wireless - so while you are out and about you can check your emails, the weather, post your status on your Facebook.

And the best part - you can download books immediately.  If you need a book right now, it's just a click away.  This can really come in handy on a day like today in Northern Indiana when we are in the middle of a blizzard.

From what I've seen of the Kindle, it's a dream come true for us clutter conscious bookworms!
