Unclutter and simplify

I'm trying to unclutter and simplify my life...as much as possible anyway. I've done a few things recently that are making a small dent. First - I receive too many emails...like 100 a day. I probably only read 2 of them...or as many as my friends send me. The rest I delete. This week, instead of just deleting them, I am unsubscribing to them. No more sales notices from Banana Republic, Macy's, Crate and Barrel...no more recipes from Martha Stewart. Not that it's going to save me a ton of time not having to hit the delete button but it IS uncluttering my inbox!

Next - I can't believe how much stuff Jake brings home from school. The calendar, the handbook, the newsletter alone was 9 pages. I bought this nifty binder at Target to keep it all in...
And I keep it in the kitchen right next to the wine...which unclutters my head and simplifies my life if only for a moment.
