Sindiego's 12 Step Program

From Sindiego's blog:

12 Step Program of Recovery for Freebie Hunting Addicts

1. I will eat a proper breakfast, seated at the table, before I boot up my computer in the morning.

2. I will get dressed before noon.

3. I will make an attempt to clean the house, wash the clothes, and plan dinner before even thinking about downloading freebies.

4. I will remember that I have a husband and/or family, and that I used to enjoy spending time with them.

5. I will remember I have a dog/cat and remember to feed and care for it, as I should.

6. I will not eat my meals, in front of a computer, while blog hopping.

7. I will try to get out of the house, at least once a week, if it is necessary or not.

8. I will talk about subjects other than scrapbooking, when I am with friends and family.

9. I will remember that my life used to be filled with other interests that I have given up, now that I am so busy freebie hunting.

10. I will not download items that I will never use, just because I can.

11. I will try to make time to scrap some pictures with all the beautiful kits I've collected.

Last, but not least.

12. I will remember that I must go to bed. Those freebies will still be there tomorrow.

Now, wipe all that guilt away and get those freebies!

Have you heard of the FlyLady, she might be able to help us. I have been helped by her ideas. Thank you for your freebies. I am trying to stick to just a few blogs, but then you went and made add-ons and it was just too tempting. Buying ACDSee has also helped me see what I have and what I don't really need. Have a wonderful day! Another great thing is Stacy Julian's Library of Memories class and books The Big Picture and Photo Freedom.
