It's time to organise your photos.
As my vast areas of my homeland continue to burn out of control, areas way too enormous to geographically comprehend here in tiny UK, my heart aches for lost souls, lost homes and lost memories. Disaster relief is what Australians do best in a crisis (even when the PM is on holidays) but I still have that nagging thought of what could I do to help...

Australian members of the Assn of Professional Photo Organisers (appo.org) are searchable on this link. I encourage all families to take stock of their photos and memories this year. Get them organised and digitised for preservation and then you have the chance to enjoy and share your stories forever.
And if your images have been saved but are smoke, fire or water damaged, it is possible to restore them in many different ways.
Talk to an APPO member. We are passionate about preserving your memories.

Today's oxymoron comes as some surprise...

As a declutterer at the front line of kitchen cupboard caches, undersink stashes, understairs bulges and front door dump departments, I say Bags for Life are a complete disaster. For your home and our planet.
IMHO each bag I handle and try to repurpose has the volume of about 20-30 old style landfill sacks and are just as useless at getting clients to change their shopping habits.

The only solution is to STOP them altogether. My mother never seemed to forgot to take her string shopping bags and boxes to the grocers and supermarkets, however I am certain to end up decanting my bagless basket into my shoulder bag, backpack or the boot of my car a few times until the habit is reformed but so what? Let's just abolish this mad extension of waste and get back to basics.
Rant over.
Happy Thanksgiving.

And another reason for some serious digital decluttering - your emails have a carbon footprint too! (should I hit send??). But surely the research figure for the number of unnecessary emails sent in the UK each day is much higher than 64 million...

While I continue to find ways to eco-manage my life more effectively every day, what a brilliant recycling method for when my days are over!
