I put all the greeting cards I purchase in advance in a box standing up–even matched envelopes, and better yet, threw away those which were singles. You also liberated me by helping me identify that, indeed, my car is my office, All the stuff I have to carry around made me crazy, but now I realize it is necessary. I just need to contain it and I did over the weekend. I feel so much better! Girl Scouts of DuPage County Council
