Quick Inbox Fix...
Overwhelmed by email in your inbox?  
Take a few minutes to do this simple tip.  Search the word 'unsubscribe' in your mail search feature, then go through and remove yourself from any non-essential mailing lists.  That will cut down how much email is coming to your inbox on a daily basis.  
Bad Medicine...
With cold and flu season in full swing, it is the perfect time to organize your medicine cabinet.
Start by taking everything out of the cabinet and giving it a good cleaning. 
Next, go through all of the medications and separate everything that is expired.  It is important to properly dispose of all expired and unused medications to reduce the risk of accidental or intentional misuse.  
The FDA recommends disposing of all medications through medication take-back programs or at permanent collection sites.  Many communities, including Centerville, host drug disposal days several times a year.  
For more information on disposal recommendations go to:  FDA: Disposal of Unused Medications
Next, organize your medications by general categories, separating the adult from the children’s.  Place each category in inexpensive bins or baskets from the dollar store and label for easy identification. Put them back in the clean cabinet and restock any needed medications after your purge.
Now you are all ready for any cold that comes your way!

Lose Your Stuff, Find Yourself...
You will love these insights from Lori's book "Lose Your Stuff, Find Yourself."
"We need to stop wasting time and emotional energy on stuff, and focus more on those we love.  Anthony Brandt's quote, 'Other things may change us but we start and end with family,' reminds me not to place so much importance on the stuff I own.  Instead, I value time spent with friends and loved ones."
