I’ve mentioned this article before, but if you haven’t read it, Go. There. Now. Unclutterer has a great way to pare down your bookshelves. It was a relief to know I’m not the only one who has a few look-how-cool-am-I books laying around. I see another round of purging coming up… “Keeping book clutter off the bookshelf”.

Plastic containers breed and lose covers quickly. Lifehacker has a great article about the best type of containers for a small kitchen. Even those of us with larger kitchens could take a page from this book for the simplicity of it! “Food Storage Containers Guidelines for Small (and Big) Kitchens”.

This article gave me pause: our lives can be represented by the dash between our birth and death dates. What does yours stand for? From Divine Caroline’s “How Full Is Your Dash?”.

We all have bad days. Here’s how to handle them with grace. From the Tiny Buddha’s “3 Steps to Make a Bad Day Good”.

“You can’t write compelling copy by committee.” I’d argue it’s hard to do anything by committee, but this article is geared toward how writing by committee was a bomb. From Copyblogger’s “The Good Advice That Killed My Conversion Rate”.

It doesn’t matter what you use, really. 5 important maxims about productivity can be found at the bottom of the StepCase Lifehack article “Minimal vs. Maximal Productivity Tools”.

Nothing derails a schedule faster than something unexpected. GetOrganizedNow talks about this. “Scheduling in Time for the Unexpected”.
