The Myth of Going Paperless⠀
⠀
The truth is you are required by law to keep tax files, birth certificates, and proof of ownership paperwork… just to name a few.⠀ ⠀
But don’t let this get you down. The paperwork that you are required to keep can be safely stored and filed in less space then a single bankers box or similar.⠀ ⠀
Going paperless with all of the remaining paperwork that you receive on a daily basis can be significantly reduced or eliminated all together. And let me tell you from experience, letting go of paper is an immensely rewarding lifestyle change.⠀
⠀
5 Tips to get started going paperless⠀
⠀
ONE: No Junk Mail – get a piece of masking tape and write “No Junk Mail” and affix this to your mail box. Believe it or not, post office workers obey this instruction. It won’t stop all unsolicited mail from getting in your mail box, but it will reduce it.⠀ ⠀
TWO: Recycle Bin – get in the habit now of making a decision the first time you read your paper work and have a recycle bin in place to toss papers that you do not need to keep.⠀ ⠀
THREE: Paperless Billing – switch over your monthly bills to digital (you’ll be forced to eventually) and create a habit or routine to make sure you know how to find and pay your bills as they occur.⠀ ⠀
FOUR: Let Go – the most challenging step of going paperless is letting go of the backlog of paper work you have in your spaces. If you have difficulty knowing which papers you need to keep and which papers to let go of speak with the professionals in your life with whom you trust. ⠀ ⠀
FIVE: Set Paper Limits – Of course keep those papers that you deem irreplaceable, but set limits on how much you’re willing to store. I personally have a hat box that I keep stored under my dresser that holds a selection of cards, notes, letters, and other memento papers that I don’t want to part with. The hat box is the perfect storage space for these treasured notes, but it has a limit in what it can hold. As the box gets full, that’s when I know I need to declutter and par-down my collection.⠀
⠀
Do you have a story to share about paper?⠀

We are half way! ! 
Day 5 of our lemonade diet
the master cleanse . This is a 10 day liquid monodiet lemonade detox. 
For 10 days,  we don't eat anything.  We only drink water with lemon juice, maple syrup and a pinch of cayenne pepper. That's it.  Between 6 to 12 glasses a day is enough to keep us going. 
We do normal life including intense sports like squash,  biking, tennis and volleyball.  It's pretty amazing that we don't feel hungry! 
It's a great reset for my body and for my mind,  too.  I have too say that when Samantha proposed the idea to me I wasn't feeling very inspired to do it... but I an so happy I accepted the challenge. 
This is my fourth time doing it.  We try to do it at least once a year. 
If you are curious you can visit www.themastercleanse.org and you can also read the book.

There is no one-size-fit-all solution for Depression or Anxiety. You are not alone and there are alternatives to therapy.⠀
⠀
Have you considered these strategies for reducing your depression and anxiety?⠀ ⠀
We didn’t realize when we started our organizing business how much we would discover about the link between the stuff we keep and our mental health. The truth is, 75% of our clients admit that they are currently experiencing anxiety, depression, or both. The overwhelm is so prevalent in their lives that many say they are in survival mode. ⠀ ⠀
Does this sound like you?⠀ ⠀
There is good news.⠀ ⠀
We have witnessed hundreds of our clients make big, positive improvements to their own health when they applied the following strategies. These strategies are life long investments in your health and the health of your family. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀
5 Alternatives to Therapy:⠀
⠀
Decluttering⠀
⠀
Organization⠀
⠀
Self Care⠀
⠀
Goal Setting⠀
⠀
7 Key Ingredients For An Extraordinary Life⠀
⠀
Start sharing with someone you trust.⠀
⠀
It’s time to end the stigma attached with admitting that you are not feeling well. We believe in your ability to get better and that starts with ⠀
talking. ⠀
⠀
Discover and explore the people that surround you whom you trust. They could be a friend, family, partner, medical professional, co-worker, teammate, online relationship, or other. ⠀
⠀
If you open yourself up to sharing, know that not all whom you trust may understand what you tell them. Don’t take this personally and seek to find someone who is a good listener and can listen without judgement.⠀

We spent two days sorting and organizing 8 years worth of paper. Having a big table to work on is very helpful! There were 4 of us the first day and the two of us the second day.⠀
⠀
Paper doesn't go away. The more you procrastinate the more time and energy will be required to catch up. Making the task more difficult and overwhelming. Also creating unnecessary stress and anxiety.⠀
⠀
Most accountants and book keepers will charge by the hour. This will be a yearly unnecessary expense.⠀
⠀
Wouldn't it be better to invest time and energy only once creating a system that is easy to follow and will last? ⠀
⠀
Doing this will save you time, money, and a lot of unnecessary stress.⠀
⠀
We think it's so worth it! 
What do you think?⠀

Give your brain a break. Embrace the power of labels and systems to stay organized with your stuff.⠀
⠀
Recently we were invited to Toronto, Ontario to complete a project of creating an organized storage system for several businesses in one space. Over time the shared space had become a dumping ground for items because there was never an established system for having “homes” for things. This is very common and easily fixed.⠀
⠀
Watch the video below of the transformation, we explain the steps we followed to make it happen. Below the video we’ll share our Top 4 Tips for making your project a success.⠀
⠀
http://buff.ly/2uUdSmW⠀
⠀
4 Best Practices to follow when creating your ideal storage spaces.⠀
⠀
1. Start with your why! ⠀
⠀
You have to know what you’re working towards. What is the bright future that you can visualize when the project is complete? This is your key to ever-lasting motivation. When the times get tough — just remember why you’re doing this in the first place.⠀
⠀
2. Schedule Time. ⠀
⠀
Estimate a good amount of time that you can dedicate to your project. Remember it’s an investment in yourself. It doesn’t feel good to be rushed, give yourself time to get things done. Even if it’s one hour a week — eventually over time you will be successful!⠀
⠀
3. Know Your Challenges. ⠀
⠀
If you can name the roadblocks that might stand in your way, like procrastination, budget, or decision making, then you can make strategies for how to overcome them!⠀
⠀
4. Prioritize Routine Maintenance. ⠀
⠀
Maintenance is the difference between staying organized or falling back into chaos. We personally enjoy this part of the organizing process. Routine maintenance allows you to confirm that your system is working, that labels are still relevant, and it acts as a memory refresher for what you have in storage. Maintenance is the investment in yourself and your peace of mind — if someone tells you they’re too busy to make this happen, they’re not making healthy investments with their time. ⠀

Don’t call it a DREAM, call it a PLAN!⠀ ⠀
Every Dream we have could become a reality if we are able to create a plan with actionable steps.⠀
⠀
This is what happened to Shawn Johnston. One year ago, we met at a community breakfast. He was sitting next to me and he mentioned his dream idea of traveling for one year across Canada, Europe, and New Zealand interviewing people and sharing his stories through his photography.⠀
⠀
I shared with Shawn my experiences traveling the world for 3 years and encouraged him to create a plan to make his dream a reality! We met for coffee and had a planning session. This was almost one year ago. Today, Shawn is officially leaving on October 1st!!! I am so EXCITED for him!!⠀
⠀
This is a very inspiring story that proves the power of organization. In this case Traveling Organization.⠀
⠀
I wanted to share this story with all of you. Shawn was very kind to share his story in this video http://buff.ly/2uNWeP4⠀
