"The first thing I had to learn and the hardest was to stop buying things. And just start living with what I had. It is important to get the family on the same program. I know that company stash and dash. I finally decided to make my room first on the list and make it a safe and comfort space so I stopped putting stuff in there. That was hard. I think maybe we can all find some hints that will work for you. I remember how everyone here hung things on the floor too so that was the first and biggest rule I made and I had to include me as I needed to be the example. I did not throw anyones stuff away due to money but I did confiscate it and it took a few months to take effect. I had girls so I don't think it is just a boy habit. Lol.
I am rooting for you and I know Annie has a good program she follows. I hope she will share it here. I am a example that u can get your house in order. Hugs. Meme" 4/4/11

Subject: Someday keeper
We keep things for many reasons: because we need to, because we want to, and because we can. And one other reason is we keep things is because we might use them someday. But someday is not a day of the week. God gave us six days to labor and one day to rest. But we often miss our day of rest because we replaced it with someday. We need the seven days to clean and store and keep our possessions stored in our mind. We are waiting for our someday. I am challenging you to give the someday keepers to God. Take them to a thrift store or charity so some one else can use them today. Go straight passed ebay and garage sales you might do someday. Jesus said your stuff will turn into dust and rust someday so let God bless you and others now. Labor today so that on the next day of rest you can faithfully rest. God bless you.
Someday is not a day of the week. -

Marilyn Christine Piesse “Oma” went home to be with her Lord and Savior on November 13, 2011. She was born at Innisfail on May 19, 1948. Marilyn spent her childhood on the family farm west of Bowden in the White Creek district where she started school. She later moved to Innisfail where she met her husband. She fought a hard battle living with cancer, but faced her pain with courage and faith.
She is survived by her brother William (Janice); niece Jennifer and her children Bonita Lynn, Tammy Lynn (Sean); her grandchildren Ashley (Chris), Robyn, Sidney, Ryan, Justin, Chantel, and Danielle. She was looking forward to the birth of her first great grandchild Gracie.
She was predeceased by her father Carl; mother Grace; sister Carolyneann and her wonderful loving husband David Allan “Papa”.
Marilyn always had kind words to say and wisdom when it was needed. It was her little wink or the rub on the back that made everything okay. She saw the joys in following the Lord with a servant’s heart. Oma taught us how to love and be loved. She was a woman who never complained even on days she was very ill. And even though she is no longer a part of us in the earthly sense, she will always abide in our hearts with fond memories. Oma was a very proud mother and grandmother. You will forever be missed angel Oma, forever in our hearts. “Gentle hugs and Jesus Joys”.
