A balanced diet is made up from the five essential food groups. (I always thought they were proteins, carbs, fats, vitamins and fibre, but a quick check on the web suggests all manner of alternatives, oh well).
There are four seasons and four tops. If any of them are missing, consider yourself short-changed.
When you’re trying to get organised, there are three basic piles of stuff
- 1) stuff you need
- 2) stuff you don’t need
- 3) stuff you aren’t sure about
In fact, at any time, these are the three basic types of stuff anyone will have. You’ll have a few of the first thing, rather more of the second, and lots of the third. The trick is to know how to keep (2) to a minimum, and how to turn (3) into (2).
We’ll look at how to do this in the future. For now, just keep this in mind if you’re ever looking at your stuff and wondering what to do about it.
Note: Turning (3) into (1) rarely happens, in my experience.
