I am in a cleaning mode. Document shredding, clutter removal, and organizing are all part of the mix. I am coming to terms with the fact that I need to remove a large quantity of books from my home, plus various other unneeded items. They simply need to go. Somewhere; anywhere, preferably not here. So, to help make the decision which books should be sent packing, I am creating a bibliography of my library using Bibme, a free web-based resource. So far, I am liking it. By simply entering the ISBN I can pull up complete information and quickly save it to the bibliography. The system automatically puts it in properly cited form (e.g., MLA, APA, Chicago, or Turabian) and in correct alphabetic relationship to the other cited works. In other words, it saves a whole lot of time.
The beauty of this process is it provides greater margin in space (less really is more) and time (oh, so THAT is where I left that item!). I suppose all the serious decluttering and cleaning I have been doing at work is paying off in motivating me to do the same at home.
Take a look at your work space, and your home environment. Do you sense that less is more might be a good motto for the coming days?
