“The key to success whether you are trying to lose weight, break a bad habit or save money on your grocery bill is to consistently apply small changes over time.”
p. 27 Save More, Clip Less
One way I incorporate this principle of small changes over time is to choose a weekly project to work on ten minutes a day. Knowing it’s only ten minutes helps me to get started–even if the project seems overwhelming at first. Working on the goal daily helps me to develop discipline (hate the word, love the effects!).
I’ll be spending ten minutes a day sorting the family’s clothing. I will be getting rid of clothes that no longer fit or are no longer worn. I will also be making an inventory of clothing items that are needed. It’s just now getting cold enough for winter items, and I have a feeling we need to purchase some warmer pieces.
Would you like to join me in a ten-minute-a-day project this week?
