We are like snails, carrying our homes on our backs—with our backpacks, purses, wallets, briefcases, and diaper bags all stuffed full of items. We prize every coupon, coin, breath-freshener, hand mirror, pen, and package of gum. We not only lug along our home, but our offices, beauty salons, and daycare centers. Then, we complain that we can't find anything. What to do? That depends on your priorities—what you're willing to give up and how organized you are willing to be.
