I love Secrets of Adulthood, and am always listening to try to identify new ones. At first, I didn’t realize the usefulness of this Secret of Adulthood, which was given to me by an engineer friend: “If something doesn’t work one way, turn it around.”
Literally, if you can’t get a piece to fit, turn it around.
Materials: LACK black-brown coffee table
I bought the LACK coffee table in black brown because it was cheap, let’s face it. A year after I purchased it, I was sick of it. But, it is a large and functional table, so I wanted to continue to use it.
This week has been incredibly exciting in our Unclutterer world and I’m eager to share the details.
First up, I signed a contract for a second organizing book. The working title is Never Too Busy to Cure Clutter and it is scheduled for an early 2016 release. I had a burning desire not to rewrite my first book, so this one took awhile to develop and find the right home for it.

Much of our lives is spent trying to ignore problems, not wanting to deal with them, procrastinating.
Bills are pushed to the side to deal with later.
People we have troubles with are avoided.
Work we don’t want to do is put off while we browse the Internet.
The diet is put off until tomorrow as we eat more junk.
Our insecurities are not admitted because we don’t want to
Just discovered today that Billy’s doors are all discontinued in the UK. We wanted 10 white, glass Olsbos but not available.
A new Billy and new doors are scheduled to be in the UK in August (2014) – BUT !! the new doors will not fit on old Billy shelves. Couldn’t get the Customer Services Assistant to say why, only that the surface is shinier and some bits are more rounded.
Pretty much everyone who writes anything about personal finance will agree that the best way to get ahead financially is to increase the difference between what you earn and what you spend.
There are, of course, two major ways to make that happen. You can either earn more or you can spend less. No matter which you choose, you’re increasing that gap.
Worry does nothing but steal your joy and keep you very busy doing nothing. Unknown I’ve always worried about everything. I don’t know exactly when being caught up with the future became a natural state for me, but eventually it did. Every now and then I found myself living in the past, wondering how things would’ve been if I would have made different choices.
This article is by editor Linda Vergon. I think 2012 was the last time we “checked in” with readers to ask “How can we improve Get Rich Slowly?” Last week, we asked the Facebook readers what they thought, and we got some great comments.
Hey gang. Next week, I’ll be driving up to Springfield, MO from my home in Tulsa, OK to spend the day at the downtown Hudson Hawk Barbershop. Hudson Hawk is an old-school barbershop with a modern twist.
We live in Manhattan where space is a premium. We are fortunate to have a playroom that also needs to double as a guest room.
Conventional Murphy beds didn’t quite fit into the space and they are expensive.
As I’m writing this, I’m preparing to go see a radio show being taped in San Francisco tonight. Seats for the show disappeared within a day, so I was lucky to get one. In addition to luck, I was also prepared to make the necessary quick decision as to whether or not I wanted to attend the event when the tickets became available.
I had my goals for the year already defined.
That tired beautiful animal in me needed to die,
but not like a sacrificial offering.
There was nothing forced about it.
Death is necessarily aggressive
to leverage you from one dimension to the next,
but the gods made no demands.
Instead, they waited at the crossing
with garlands and rare oils
to anoint her fur.
She limped to the altar,
an affliction from that time she fell in the trap,
and she s
